Remember that with 9 left dubs tried to get everyone in my alliance to vote for you. That was when I talked my alliance into voting for dubs because I knew he was up to something. Which I was right about.
Posted by polabonez on 12/31/2012 4:48:00 PM (view original):I had NO IDEA what to make of dubs and I don't think I put it in the letters, but I thought he had the other idol that arfy went home with. Dubs was too much of a wildcard for me. I put a little too much faith in ghutton.
I have no vetted interest as host but watching from the outside... I was completely floored Casey that you jumped on the 4-4. Especially since you had the idol which could have changed it to your favor. And you SEEMED from the letters (which I will disclose some later) that you had a pretty good handle on the game.
You have to remember Tyson, you have all the info, and unless someone has a morbid sense of humor all the info you get is truthful.
I had to wade through alot of **** to figure out what was real and who was blowing smoke. In the end, they all were blowing smoke.
It really sucks sometimes to play these games when I have absolutely no one I can trust, unlike a lot of people who seem to have this real loyalty that goes above the game.
I am going to have to go back and check the sitemails, but I don't recall that at all. Nine left was your primary 4, me, tsut, csudak, Arfy and sjurat.
So, I could see it if tsut had immunity that the best play for me would have been to have Casey gone so that Arfy and I could switch sides after that.
I will say that at 10 people left, I believed my only chance was to keep switching sides back and forth until the end, hopefully ending up in the final three that contained some combination of me, Arfy, sjurat and jhard. But in every scenario I ran, I would have made no attempt to eliminate you before 5th ghutton.
I am not denying I could have made that suggestion, by the by, but where we were at 9 and where we were at 8 when Arfy is no longer in the game, as far as my options, is a very different place.
My rule in playing Survivor is like Sandra Diaz-Twine. As long as its not me. Especially since the elimination of Arfy left me with only one person I had been working for since the start of the game.
