For me its really simply.
I like good teams.
Teams that don't fight amoung themselves, teams that don'y fight or insult locals, teams that respect countries and customs, teams that play fair, and teams that aren't confrontational with other teams.
Now no team is perfect. But the closest match this season is Tyler & James
But I don't hate the BQ's I just wish they were nicer and not so damn self absorbed. You want to run a strong independent race, then ran a strong independant race, but don't screw people over when doing it. Don't get pissed off at a team for trying to prevent a local from helping you, when you did the same thing the leg before. If you make an alliance (make it wisely, but stick to it for the duration), don't try to consistently take help and agree to help in return and not. Don't not tell someone that their car's tire is going flat. Thats a terrible, terrible way to play. If you told him, you win. Your a good person, you decrease the chance of them getting a blowout or losing control of their vehicle. ANd they most likely stop for sure and you get infront of them. Its a win-win. Really as far as that goes only Romber not stopping to see if anyone was hurt was a worse safety move I have seen in this race (I can't remember if Teri & Ian tried to tell Ken & Gerard about their flat if they didn't then bad on them as well).
Rob & Kim, they run a far race, they keep their alliance. But just chill out a little more. Both of them need to treat each other with more respect. The show makes Rob look worse, the clips make Kimberly look worse, so I think both could work on it. And when you have taxi problems try and act a little more like your friends Tyler & James when they have taxi problems.
Karlyn & Lyn. You know at times (small brief periods, I can almost really like this team). In ,leg four they seemed great, when they raced by themselves and stopped bitching about every other team. ANd how bad you think they percieve you. This leg, if you would have lost the hypocrisy I would have loved you in this last leg.Run your own race, if you are going to complain about others, or run with your group but keep your mouth shut. Don't bitch about D & K letting a team get ahead with them. When minutes earlier you tried to get a ticket agent to stop helping Rob & Kim. Don't blame Tyer & james when thy tell you to leave the agent alone and that you should calm down and say how they would be doing the same thing. When you know they wouldn't. You were there when Two teams pushed their way in front of them getting bus or train tickets to Mongolia (insider Clips) they kept their mouths shut, delt with it and never said a cross word to anyone about it, especially not the ticket agent. Don't complain about people begging and how you think it not right to do and then had besides we aren't succesful when we do it. Don't bitch about a team outrace you. Unless their is a marked path and an sign in or pull sheet it who ever can get it fastest. Don't so someone deserves getting hurt just becasue they are faster tehn you are.
