Tell me mastermind what you would know about leading? A joke about being " Possibly the greatest player no-one has ever heard of " has really got your knickers in a twist.
Have you ever led anyone to anything ? Making myself a target helped my weaker players to survive a deeply uneven contest - made worse by Saladin's sabotage.
(No Bear these were not great lads they were exactly as I described them).
Some great leaders may indeed make ego massaging attacks on others strongholds.
It was an offer Phil declined none castigated him for that not even I .
Perhaps great leaders do whatever might be in the best interests of their wider membership at any given point in time in any given situation. But what depth of perception can be expected from an Avowed NOOB Hater like you . ?
Put some sugar on your dummy - it may fill your cavernous gob for a bit longer before your next exocetal explosion of wisdom on this stage.
