Okay, what if you were one of the TAR 21 racers, and you encountered the same scenario with the money. What would you do?

Personally, I would have done either 1 or 3. While I understand it might not be "stealing" per se, I still think it is morally wrong. Four, hmm, I don't know...

Two things:
1. That was in Episode 6.
2. Give it back. Its a dirty way to get ahead. I would rather win fairly.

Always give it back, even if they were bad, ungrateful people. How could you live with yourself if you didnt?

However, we cant even be 100% sure that the twins didnt try to return it. They weren't even sure whose it was..

It depends whose money. If it was a team that I like and is nice to me, I would give it back but if it was a team that isn't nice or I don't like, I wouldn't give it back.

Donate the money to a charity organization (or a donation box) if I see one.

There's an interview posted in the Ep 12 thread with Phil, where he discusses money-gate. According to Phil the footage was reviewed and TPRB decided that James and Abba lost their money before the Twins found it, so there were no rules violation.

At least we've got an answer to that one.

Phil's reasoning seems a little specious. I went over the video again and two things look clear: the Twins knew the bills belonged to the Rockers; and the money was in a spot the Rockers would have easily discovered (if the money had been left alone). INAL, but isn't there a increased obligation to return the goods to the rightful owner?
