Legit or am I an ass?
That's fair. Everyone has fun for 59 minutes. If it comes down to that last minute and the game is on the line, your make the call and put the top guys out. The guys you're removing will be happier with a win than more time.

edit: I'm sure they'll understand as well. Played hard for 59 minutes and you're only up by one? You want to give your team its best chance at winning.
