A done deal.
    For me, the thing is that T/L still had the option to inform the rockers what had happened to their money as opposed to going along with the twinnies' plan. Sure, the Twinnies would probably have gotten upset with them, but that's what happens sometimes when you make a choice to do what you believe to be right. And, on the other hand, they would have gotten the total respect of the Rockers and probably other teams, once they found out. I suspect some viewers would have cheered them on as well.

    For me, you have to do what lets you sleep at night. But that's just me. For all I know, the Twinnies and T/L's sleep isn't bothered in the least by what they've done.

    Oh, I agree, Tilden. Texas had already expressed reluctance to go along with keeping the money, and had to be convinced to do so by the twins. I guess offering to split it was a bribe of sorts, for their silence. I can't imagine I would be able to sleep very well after that, even if the entire thing had not been filmed for the world to see.

    Thanks for those snippets of interviews. It doesn't surprise me that they were not shocked at the twins keeping the money. While the twins are certainly strong racers, and I do give them credit for that, they are also hugely competitive, they don't care how they come across to others, and they truly seem to believe the "win at any cost" mantra. The twins have been highly critical and insulting to other players in their interviews, so I can imagine that attitude would seep through to the other teams just from their interactions with them.

    Just because someone is not strong enough to stand up to a more assertive personality does not mean they were bullied. They did not take time to really think about it. They didnt need the money, it only served to put Metal far behind them. The twins had already done that. It was a stupid move that cost them some fans and tarnished their reputation for being good players on this show.
