Perhaps. But if someone did have an issue and really wanted to play, would you be willing to step aside and let him?
Sometimes being a great leader calls for personal sacrifice. Of course, being a great team member calls for personal sacrifice for the betterment of the team as well.
That's the angle I would focus on when serving a team as its captain. Is a team member in it for the team or for himself?
