They paid him too much not to give him a "name" and they couldn't afford for him to win. Worked out for everyone, James got his money.

But we are getting waaaay off topic here. I think if we just had a 2 person run off you would win. The other quality candidates are taking your votes.
"Couldnt afford for him to win" is where I had a problem. To me, they pretty much arranged for him to lose. Makes Cody Mc/Chad Mendes look like Ali and Forman.

And yeah, I agree. The only reason I'm down is because of all of these other dicks. I'm a nice person and don't give anyone abuse, so if it wasn't for these complete and utter arseholes....
