I hear a lot of people talking about how Tom's a jackass to his fans. I've never met Travis, so I can't say anything there. I met Mark really quickly once before a show, but there were so many kids crowded around that I couldn't really do anything but get a quick picture, handshake, and introduction. I met Tom- and actually got to talk to him- and was FAR from disappointed. He was awesome. Incredibly nice. He kept asking me questions and making conversation and just made me feel really comfortable. I was shaking nonstop before because in 6th-9th grade, I idolized him. I still look up to him. Anyone I've talked to who's met him says the same.
I'm not calling you out because you're not the only person that I've heard say that, but it doesn't really match my experience. And I'm definitely not arguing your point about his ego.
