Leaving it on the BENCH!

Now that we have several game weeks behind us the new bench feature has certainly found it's place for many while a few still ignore the possible benefits. Regardless of your preferred choice the Bench feature has also given birth the newest of all complaints.....I HATE IT WHEN I LEAVE POINTS ON THE BENCH!

Lets attempt to clarify and hopefully slow down the growth of this misguided complaint.

It is Impossible to LEAVE POINTS ON THE BENCH!

The bench is designed and works best as an (INSURANCE) against players being rotated or injured or anything really that would cause a player in our line up to not play, OR to hold a discounted player for any reason..That is it.

If you start a player and have one sitting on your bench at the same position, the choice has been made (by you) and your starting 11 is just that..your starting 11.

There is absolutely no difference between me choosing Benteke over Lukaku and having Lukaku score 20 while Benteke only scores 5 and complaining that I left points off my team some how.

Throughout the course of any game week we Tweak & Shim our team with countless scenarios and our starting 11 does not include the 0-100 other choices we (MAY HAVE CONSIDERED) at any given position.

We ALL have complaints after game day. Hopefully we can hold them to the players that PLAYED and not the one's we COULD have played.
