T.Rex Feather Skepticism

A T.Rex feather question actually. Or maybe it's even more a statistics question;

Since we find clear evidence of feathers in smaller dinosaurs, wouldn't there then be substantially more evidence available for larger theropods if they too were feathered? A feathered T. Rex, for example, would produce literally tons of feathers in its lifetime. Where has all this tonnage gone?

(Maybe paleobotanists should go to work on it! "No. 163: T. Rex feather impression - formerly misidentified as fern")
