Normally I'd say "too bad, so sad" if they're bitter, but in Tom's case, I totally understand. He was similar for the most part to his season in attitude, but really got tangled up with a bunch of egoists who think that an injured player is worth more than a healthy one.Originally Posted by VelvetRed;3854926;
Honestly, I'd be bitter knowing that not only had they kept an injured player - and a serious one at that, over another player for "numbers" sake, but that the injured could up being evacuated out next day - meaning I lost three days more in the game over a popularity contest.
And, it's worse when Tom knows James is one of those who has had that happen before, though that case it was an infected finger.
Out of all the older players that have won - Tom simply DOMINATED the competition. He won all the crucial individual immunity challenges he needed, and was respected enough that one player - Ian, kept his word he'd vote himself out of the final two if Tom won. Tom also told him he didn't want to honor that promise (this was after the longest held final immunity challenge - over 12 hours), but Ian insisted. So, yeah, this case I think it was more numbers than power - if they paid attention, this was the one "old man" that was more valuable than an injured player.
