Yeah, but . . . don't take this the wrong way or anything, but . . .
You wouldn't get replaced if you could, you know, play better. I can assure you that the one lady who did win got all the play time she wanted.
If the goal of the team is playoffs and everyone knows this up front, then folks have to know that nothing is guaranteed and all decisions will be made to make the team the strongest it can be. If that doesn't suit you, maybe another team would be a better fit?
