Everyone pays the same, they should get equal chance to be out there no matter the situation. What happens when the stacked line doesn't do a thing? You still lost and now you have people on the bench not too happy. Doesn't seem worth it to me.
If they're up for sitting to help out the team, go for it, but not if they have a problem with it.
Then again I don't have that 'drive' that most guys have. I'm out there for exercise, not winning or losing, so I don't really care either way personally.
The 3 minutes you give up or gamble to someone else who has a better chance could buy you 1 or 2 more play off games which means... "X" amount of additional shifts for the sacrifice of 1.
Or, you can keep your 1 shift and screw off over everyone's chances at playing additional games.
I've played with my fair share of beginners. I really don't mind them except for the ones who significantly over estimate their skill level and their attitudes along with it.
