Luke, how do you feel about the TAR 14 teams slaughter happening?

I wasn't too happy about that!! It's just odd how it happened. If it weren't for twists or superlegs. The order would have been Jet & Cord in 1st leg, Ron & Christina in 2nd leg, then it probably would be still Mel & Mel in 3rd leg, then Goths in 4th leg!!!!!

That would have been SO priceless to see the Cowboys go out FIRST!!! 

Most fans would have definitely been mad to see them get the boot first, including myself.
This is just my opinion.
Although I must admit that had they been eliminated they would have deserved it for sucking so badly at the roadblock.

GO Cowboys!!! I hope you will make in F3!!!

i happened to read jordan's tweets and i never knew there was so much hatred between the two teams.

also i know the line-cutting and first-class issue was the highlight of the finale in season 16 but i think it's a tad unfair to dan and jordan when the producers make it appear as though they were undeserving winners. just my two cents worth.

Yep, I had the misfortune of reading Jordan's tweets too and I have to say he seems a whole lot more bitter and angry than Jet.
I thought Dan and Jordan were two of the whiniest contestants ever to grace Amazing Race to be honest, plus the way the treated the locals was pretty awful.

What does Jet have to be bitter and angry about, exactly?

A real shame that they were eliminated since they were one of the most competitive teams in the show. If the Globetrotters go next then the finale won't be as interesting or suspenseful in my opinion since they're pretty much the only remaining competitive team that you have to look out for.

I hope we get to see them again though, having to do the fondu challenge on top of everything else they experienced must have been killer! Would be interesting to know how much time it took them.

I think that U-Turn was in a pretty bad part at the race. But that is just my opinion. If there was no U-Turn, Cowboys would be safe.

If there was no U-Turn this leg, they'd still be out. Last place when they got to the U-Turn. Just further last because of it.

I feel the cowboys only saw the challenges as the whole race. They didn't get that if everyone is on a flight, then taking a flight that arrives half an hour later is stupid. I'm not a cowboy fan, but I'm not gonna go dissin on them here. Those were my two (or three) cents.

    It was not the u-turn that caused their elimination, they were last anyway and the only way for the Globetrotters to loose from them would be if they had lost their way to the pit stop.
    IMO the cowboys lost because they never bonded with the other teams. It was obvious from previous episodes that they kept to themselves, they didn't mingle with the other teams and that lead to their demise.
    We mustn't forget that TAR is not only a race but also a social game and alliances or at least good relations can be important. The cowboys didn't have that and that was obvious in at least 3 occasions in this race, a)in Sydney, when half the teams told the others the decoded message, but Jet never even thought of asking for help, b) in the flight from Calcuta to Varanasi and c) in the flight from Varanasi to Austria when the cowboys chose a different fight when they knew that all the other teams were together.
    Most obvious example of their aloofness was in this episode when Jet didn't stick with Gary during the RB, if he had worked with him, they wouldn't be eliminated.

It was a bad sign.

Jet and Cord were an honorable team who Raced better than other teams who consistently whine at and fight with each other. I think Racers should follow their example of hard work and teamwork.
We should celebrate their good qualities rather than kick them while they are down.

Wow, what a vile website this is...or maybe it's just the majority of the posters here.
If any good came out of the Cowboy's being eliminated (when almost every other team cheated) then it will be that I won't be visiting here again. If you are going to run a forum then how about a bit of unbiased moderating.

Thanx for the shout out!  Although I have personally not met the Cowboys I have some good sources that say they were great guys on the Race. Based on that they do not fall in the "bastard" catergory.

I agree, Lion. It think this comment was unwarranted and goes against this rule:

Quote
While it is perfectly fine to explain why you think a racer or a team did not do well in a task, or behaved badly, or just isn't your favorite, it is NOT okay to be rude or impolite in doing so. We don't allow personal attacks on each other OR on our racer friends. Comments on how they raced are fair, personal attacks are not. "Don't hate on the Racers, hate the game."

Actually Prophet I am liking his comment, but applying to it to the Cowboys would not fit the bill is all I am saying..
