Tigh's alcoholism

I removed the line about Ellen or her infedelity being the cause of Tigh's alcoholism because it is clearly wrong in light of "Scattered" and the deleted scenes from that episode. The flashbacks in that episode clearly show that Tigh already has a drinking problem when he first meets Adama. He is not married yet at that point, as when Adama discusses his wife, he jokes he should get himself one of his own. The most likely reason for his alcoholism is his experiences during the Cylon War. Indrian 15:48, 29 August 2006 (CDT)

Yes. He had a drinking problem already due to war, though it got a lot worse when his divorce hit. --The Merovingian (C - E) 18:05, 29 August 2006 (CDT)
