I suspect there is quite a bit of "reading into" going on here in relation to the original comments made about pre-takeoff briefings. I have to admit to disliking the verbiage which seems to accompany so many people's aviating these days, there is a big difference between having a clear mental plan and picture of the surroundings, and spouting a some formulaic nonsense that is so beloved of a certain type of instructor.

I flew with one muppet who delivered a beautiful briefing before every takeoff, right down to "I'll land straight ahead or not more than 30 degrees either side of the centreline..." and promptly overshot the field when he suffered an EFATO (in an LSA type), instead of turning approximately 70 degrees (from 400' odd) and landing on a cross runway. So yes, aviation is a dynamic environment.
