If that happened, I'd be done with that team. Other than that, he can use me as he sees fit. He's the captain. I'll do as I'm told.
Some people have lost sight of what it means to be the MEMBER of a TEAM.
Most people are like you, believe me. The other part of my story is that 4 of my guys were available on demand to work through an unavoidable last minute lineup fiasco, including one who dropped everything and immediately left cocktail hour to play a match he didn't expect to because we needed someone.
