You will not find too much sympathy in the world of animals lovers on the side of the JP's and I'm pretty sure that is the result they were hoping for.
That is probably true, so what we will get is even more idiots going to try and do something. The people on that ship are complete morons, they started cheering when they thought they stopped them from loading an already dead whale, just to see the ship get it loaded anyhow. Once again all they did was FAIL.
The finale showing was pretty good, I did like the text at the end telling about what happened and the amount of whales they didn't get to their quota etc etc. Its meaningless in the long run cause it didn't stop whaling and it may never. The Sea Shepherds should lose the flag, they were told no throwing off the ship and did it anyhow. They clearly rammed the ship no matter what they say, the whaling ship looked like it didn't move and the Steve Irwin turned towards the whaling ship.
I hope they get busted big time for the actions, but I have a feeling nothing is going to happen that's major. I am on the side of the whalers, the people on that ship to me are nothing but eco terrorists. I hope the Japanese next season step up with really bass a$$ stuff like guns with rubber bullets etc.
