I think both the captain and the guy are wrong but the complainer is more wrong than the captain.
Its a beer league, you're playing for nothing. I really do get the competitiveness of games but there's a line you have to draw before you're taking meaningless games WAAAAAY too seriously.
If you're really getting a sense of glory or accomplishment out of those games then you're putting too much stock into a rec league IMO. Does it really matter if you lose a playoff game?
With that said, this isn't little league where everyone plays x amount of innings and gets x amounts of at bats. The dude is an adult, he should act like one.
I commend you if you are able to do this, but I am the complete opposite. I don't care what age or level I am playing at -- I take it extremely seriously. I'm not saying being chippy as anything and going through guys at all costs. But yeah, I get pissed if my team loses and celebrate hard if my team wins. I have teammates just like me, and others who are there for the sake of it. It bothers me and my teammates when there is that disconnect. If you join any type of league where the score and stats are kept, whatever level it may be, I have absolutely no problem with guys putting stock into it.
If this guy is so concerned about getting the same amount of ice time as everyone else because he paid the same fee, he should just rent ice with a bunch of guys and play shinny.
