Agree completely - the fact is that the Jury has to decide who they "want" to get a million dollars. Do they want to hand someone who has treated them like dirt that much money? I wouldn't. The final 3 (or 2) got there by outplaying, outwitting and obviously out lasting. The question then is simply - who does the jury want to walk away with $1M ?

Ya, but in hockey, you have to earn your goals and you can always argue you were not the better team since the other team had a hot goalie and a good defense is better than a good offense. You also don't have judges like figure skating giving you scores.

Voting for the person you like the most (as the women obviously did with the "you go girl" verbage) is a waste of a vote.

Who shaped and controlled the game the most? Only 2 people did this and "America" rewarded Russell because of it.

I'm surprised that Rupbert finished 2nd in that vote but he's a well liked person.

But, as Probst pointed out, THIS is the game - everyone knows the rules and how the votes are cast at the end. If some people are going to take insults from a Russell personally, a good player figures this out and will strive not to offend.

Russell didn't play that game well at all (in fact, he essentially played no defense - he was all on the offense). And as we all know, offence might put butts in the seats, but defence wins championships (or the $1M prize).
