I must say I feel quite embarrassed for this "community" that apparently supports any person or behavior that goes against Tough Love, no matter how shady or pathetic it may be. You should ignore your antipathy for Tough Love for just a second and think about this issue objectively: Person A made a bet with person B and lost. Then person B felt cheated on by a person C on an entirely unrelated matter and now refuses to pay their debt with person B. There is no reason to back person A's reasoning other than to defy Tough Love. Sputnick has been giving the people hope by standing up against Tough Love since he came back and it looks like he found a new way to do so, after his attempts in the arena and the Warsong Gulch failed massively.
