I adore Russell - both seasons of him. However, I get why people despise him.
Two things became clear for me after tonight's show....
Russell is right. He's played back-to-back games without the benefit of some down time to regroup. Honestly, I give him that.
Rob is right. Russell plays to get to the end, but he doesn't play to win. That was SOOO well stated and the essence of Russell's weakness in this game.
I hope that with some time away, he'll see the light.
