Sometimes going up a level and failing miserably (or at least, having to work ridiculously hard just to be below average) is the best thing that can happen to those guys. When I was playing my first season, our delusional captain told me he videotaped himself to learn where his weaknesses were and that's what made him the player he was, so I should try it. He was alright, but he was constantly out of position, slow, had a terrible shot and generally failed at reading the play.

Then he joined a team in the mid-tier league and found out he wasn't nearly as good as he thought he was. But he's stayed on that team (as well as playing in the low-level league still), gotten better and amazingly stopped being so "helpful" because he realized he didn't know what he was talking about.

On the other hand, you've got guys who just never realize it even when they're getting skated around constantly.
