coach: OK kids, some of you are going to play, and some wont. We call this shortening the bench.
kids all think it's someone else who wont play (american kids are an over-confident bunch and tend to think they are more skilled than they are in sports).
We actually ended up playing a few minutes into the 3rd with 8 or 9 forwards and normal D, but one of our forwards got sick, so we pulled one of our 4 D up to offense and kept the other two out there the rest of the game (my son plays RD #proud - decision who to play was left up to the other assn coach).
