He didn’t get it 1997 and he doesn’t get it now

Fuzzy Zoeller is perhaps best known for his racist remarks made during the 1997 Masters golf tournament when he made some derogatory remarks about Tiger Woods. He claimed he was misunderstood. Tiger forgave him but the comments made haunt Fuzzy. Now Fuzzy is upset because of some comments made on wikipedia. He wants to sue.

Fuzzy and his lawyers don’t seem to grasp how wikipedia works. The comments made against him have been removed but like many wikipedia articles may return. Wikipedia does a great job of identifying pages that are controversial, have been vandalized, or aren’t very good. If everyone sued every malicious item posted on wikipedia or the internet for that matter…..well you complete that sentence.

Fuzzy you just can’t do that. Maybe you should do what Tiger did back in ’97….forgive. Or better yet, go change the article yourself.

Update: I see USAToday has referenced my post as well as included links to the official legal documents.
