As I stated in my initial post...a castaway can be weak/pathetic in a discipline and STILL make their mark on the game--even win their season of Survivor. But, once again, we are talking the GREATEST OF ALL TIME.
Yes, Rod Carew was a one-dimensional hitter. Even so I truly believe he deserves to be in the Hall-of-Fame. But if I had to rank the top five GREATEST HITTERS OF ALL-TIME, Carew doesn't even get mentioned. I challenge you to find such a list where any baseball expert would rank Carew as a top five hitter of all time. WHY??? Because he did not excel in every hitting discipline. In no way is that a criticism. Carew's job was to get hits and "set the table"...and other teammates roles were to knock him in.
As for your sports examples...I don't know how to put it tactfully so I'll just say it straight--Very silly examples.
The winner of a season is called SOLE SURVIVOR. Please note the emphasis on the word "sole." It is an individual honor. You're mixing apples with oranges when comparing TEAM players on a TEAM sport who have a specific role on a TEAM to achieve a TEAM accomplishment.
Pitchers are not on the team to hit...as a matter of fact in the AL they are not even asked to hold a bat. Even great QBs like Brady or Rodgers would not be on the team if they tried to block out linebackers after they handed the ball off. It's not their jobs.
OK...enough of that silliness.
In EI, no way Terry, Shane, and Austin vote for Cirie over Aras. If Cirie made the F2 it would have meant that she beats Danielle in the F4 tiebreaker. We have all seen Danielle's poor sportsmanship as a sore-loser. I'm sure she'd still be smarting over her loss to Cirie, so I wouldn't chalk that up as a "definite" vote.
Also consider Danielle walking up to the Ponderosa. Courtney would have been ALL over her as to why she turned on her. Danielle's answer would have been quick and honest--It was Cirie who was concerned about you getting carried to the F2 because you were everyone's "perfect goat" so it was Cirie who spearheaded your boot. After acquiring that info...Oh Yes...Courtney "definitely" votes Cirie. LOL
I do observe the "game still underway." And anyone who followed Skankivor: Micronesia closely would see how Erik idolized Ozzy and worshipped the ground he walked on. Even your "favorite nurse" said in a confessional that "stardust came from Erik's mouth every time he mentioned the name Ozzy."
Simply put, Erik votes the same way his idol Ozzy votes at FTC. Heck, we're talking about the same naïve ignorant boy who gave his bloody idol away because he was asked to. Sure, afterwards when Erik went home and reflected on this blunders, he grew up and said he would have done many things different. But at that FTC "still underway" he votes how Ozzy/James wanted him to.
