    Great job, Bill. I especially wanted to read your insights on what the heck Richard was doing, and you didn't disappoint.

    Yay, the P* Reports are back! As always, excellent insights and superb writing, Bill. I love to hear your thoughts on the political machinations of the game. My wife and I arrived at a similar evaluation of Richard's behavior in the game, BTW, but I think there's another layer to it. He even told us it doesn't matter what he does because he's going to be a big target. But if he acts indifferent, he's likely to agitate them even more. He doesn't appear worried in the least. I think he expects to take everyone else out of their mental game, which will give him a chance to capitalize on their mistakes.

    I loved this line, BTW:

    I donít care if Sue has swallowed axel grease with a rusty spoon


    Looking forward to a full season of these. Thanks, Bill!

    Khay! We hope you stay a long time.

    Oh, and Paulie, I agree with what you say. Richard may have multiple views of what his behavior is doing. No question he is doing it on purpose.

    I also wanted to add for all that the Tina interview highlighted that lack of water may be really getting to Rupert physically. That could explain him being a bit reserved.

    Bill!
    Great, great report, especially now that they're named after the great Pelican Pete!
    I agree with you on almost everything, most of all about Rob C. I'm still stunned that he's "quiet."
    This season is going to be excellent.

    RobC is like Richard in that he doesn't have to do anything to be a target. Being quiet won't make people forget he's a stellar player. He is very much in danger of being voted out early, as Bill indicated. I hope not, though. I'd really love to see him win the thing.

    I think it is wrong for Rob to change his approach. His best skill (though he looks to be in a lot better shape this time around) is playing the game. He maybe laying low to look for openings, but he is going to be in trouble if he doesn't align with some people soon.

    Rob C. really has no choice but to be quiet. Sue is the clear target, and Rahb and Alicia are busy fighting. The last thing he wants is to have to pick sides. He doesn't pick sides. He lets the sides pick themselves then he goes between them and helps them vote each other off while he floats unscathed to the end.

    Even if he wasn't or hadn't been quiet, we wouldn't have seen it yet with Rahb and Alicia, anyway.

    So True.
    Great analysis Bill.
    I'm scratching my head on Richard's antics too, but that has to be it.
