PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

While adapting one's plans is important, that isn't what determines the successful warrior according to The Art of War:

"to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.
Thus the highest form of generalship is to balk the enemy's plans.
The next best is to prevent the junction of the enemy's forces."

As soon as Frank won the veto last time, Dan knew that he'd be a target. It was easy to anticipate Frank's attack so Dan could have gone to him without the mascarade of his own Funeral. Had he talked to Frank BEFORE Frank won HoH, he could have prevented Frank's attack, balking the enemy's plan. His next best move would have been to prevent Jenn and Frank joining forces against him by aligning with Jenn first. Fairly easy strategy to foresee.


>Just because he didn't do what
>you would have done doesn't
>mean he has no strategy.

Of course it doesn't but his strategy relied on luck. Could he expect that Frank would be so stupid? Certainly but why risk getting so close to the precipice?

And I agree with Julie there because I've always said that the best BB players have been, in order, Will, Dan and, in a distant 3rd position, Maggie.
(I never saw Danielle's original season)
Doesn't mean Dan couldn't do better or that someone else couldn't best him.


>Until he's on the couch with

His actions were very good, I've admitted that but I think he could have done better.

>completely up for bashing.

See, I don't question the moral aspect of it at all.
Britney knew the rules of the game and she even tried to get an alliance going with Frank to save herself and Shane, letting Dan hang. Her problem was that she didn't offer any immediate gain to Frank. Promising future safety is nothing compared to what Dan gave to Frank: Inside information on the enemy, a plan to take them down and an alliance to the end.
