OMG, they are so clueless. I swear I heard someone in the commentator booth yesterday already said Gilles has an injury. But sure enough, still no one besides that person catch on. Not even they don't do research, they don't even listen to each other's talks.
I remember now, that person is Gimelsob. When he was reporting to that whoever guy about Fish's withdrawal, he mentioned that he played an injured Simon. That's about it. So I guess the other commentators didn't listen to his report.
