Yeah if it's one guy doing it, and it especially helps if he's not getting tired because he's not putting any effort into it, should be pretty easy to tell him to smarten up or you kick him off the team. In any casual team sport when you have subs on the sidelines the point isn't to stay on until you're dead tired, you need to cycle the lines so everyone gets play time and no one gets cold on the bench.
