Prep. time for what? Surely they didn't thought Nadull had a chance of winning AO after being out for half a year! Couldn't his ego accept a 2nd round exit?
I didn't say that they invented it but surely his knee was not that good either.
That said, yes, I would prefer them to be more transparent even though his knee situation is probably hard to explain.
What's so hard to explain, everyone who has a brain suspects that the knees are the real issue!
