Electronic Arts Making Tiger Woods Statement Tomorrow -- Will They Keep Him?

Electronic Arts has told GameSpot they'll make an announcement tomorrow that's expected to confirm whether they will be one of the few companies to continue sponsoring disgraced golf athlete Tiger Woods. USA Today is speculating that EA will continue to brand its golf games with Tiger Woods.

This is very important. Why?

I have a vested interest in the outcome. No, I'm not an EA shareholder, but Stephen Johnson and I made a bet about Tiger Woods. Even though the guy has been publicly shamed day in and day out for the past few months (and rightfully so, it seems), I predicted EA would continue to stand by him, even if they start downplaying his involvement in the video game. Far fewer people would purchase a game without Tiger Woods on the cover, I've argued. Stephen, obviously, doesn't agree with me.

If EA decides to drop Tiger Woods, I have to complete the Mickey Rourke-starring Rogue Warrior from start to finish. A complete playthrough of Rogue Warrior is on the line, people.

As you can imagine, I'll be be paying very close attention to the EA Sports blog tomorrow.
