My thoughts on the Cochran situation
Nov 3, 2011
- I thought it was a good show overall. South Pacific's been a great season so far. As for the Cochran situation, I'd like too make a little mini speech here. I could sit here and say that it was a dumb move in retrospect. I could sit here and say that it made for some real good television. I could sit here and say plenty of things. But there's one thing I wanna specifically address. Now, I don't know about you guys, but I am a fan of the game of survivor. But when I say fan, I mean i'm a fan of 'the game'. I love blindsides, I love hidden immunity idols, I love flipping, I love flopping. But the one thing that nags me the most is when people in game get their panties in a wad from getting played. As we saw during the ending of last episode, Jim was calling Cochran a coward, and Brandon, who throughout the entire game has been the crazy person, patted Cochran on the back in a gesture of protection, signalling that his new Upolu alliance would keep him from getting beat up, like he's the nerd about to be picked on by a gang of bullies. Ozzy and the gang are acting like a bunch of brats. You got played, so suck it up and keep playing is what I always say in these situations. If you get emotional over people playing the game the way it's supposed to be played, then they are a bunch of morons and shouldn't be there in the first place. The fact that Cochran made a bad strategic move or not is irrelevant. It's how Savaii's talking down too Cochran like he's a child, and getting angry over being played in a game about lying and deceit is totally unprofessional and immature.
