SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

The preferential treatment Tiger Woods got in the car crash investigation is shameless. The police said they couldn't release the report on the accident cause without his permission, which is false. They said there was no evidence of alcohol or drug use contributing, neglecting to mention they didn't test his blood. And they didn't request his phone records to see if he was driving distracted.

The only thing they did investigate was his speed. He was driving 83 mph in a 45-mph zone and they won't be pressing charges.

If he'd been driving a Kia, they would have been planting a memorial tree at the 16th at Augusta before last night's Champion's Dinner.

Fact still remains that if you're a transcendent athlete tooling around Southern California, you've got a much better chance of making it safely to your destination in a white Bronco.

Fact still remains that laws are for people without wealth and connections. And not limited to California.
