Well you are commenting on effectively a war analogy without any understanding it seems. OTAs would be like basic training in the Army. It is not a battle.
You can be upset he is not at OTAs but there is no conflict between his statement and his absence at OTAs. In fact I would interpret his statement and the video as him saying whether he is at OTAs or not he will be prepared for when the actual battles ie games start.
