He reiterated his stance that he followed protocol on the day he was tardy, calling the team to let people know he was stuck. He stopped short of saying he was singled out, because he wasn't the only one told to leave. But he did say that it wasn't the first or last time someone had arrived late, yet it was the only time players were sent home.

"I think losing and winning has a lot to do with it, if we'd won that previous week that wouldn't have been an issue," Thomas said. "I will say this -- When you do something like that, it's hard to keep that, because then it happens again, you have to send somebody else home. That wasn't the case. And so then, you question that."

As for the year as a whole year, Thomas said, "I don't know if you can say you weren't wanted. I definitely didn't have fun. It was definitely a frustrating year."

He continued, "Like I said, if I have a problem with someone, I'll go to them and say whatever. I don't understand it, bro. It's mind-boggling."

So does he want out? He didn't say that. But he certainly didn't sound happy with his current situation.

"I want to come somewhere where I'm wanted and where I'm gonna have fun," Thomas said. "If I'm not gonna do that, that's not where I'm gonna be."
