When one player on a team is taking cheap shots, not only do people feel animosity towards that person, they feel it toward the entire other team.

Now if someone blatantly takes a shot at me, I'm going to protect myself, but that doesn't mean it makes sense to have one person to do all the "protecting". It actually makes most situations worse.
This all seems ridiculously stupid for beer league.

That said, Mark doesn't have to be running anybody. Just because Mark can deal with player "x" doesn't mean Mark has to act like player "x".
