For some reason I got roped into being captain again for the fall season. What is wrong with me? Do I just enjoy abuse? So my co-captain and I start getting requests for partnerships and everything's cool except that one of our top three players is a bee-atch that nobody wants to play with. There's no question that she's a great player, and capable of winning a lot - but in the three years she's been on the team, she's gotten a reputation of being really critical of partners. She actually says hurtful, mean things that end friendships. The two people I'd like her to play with have both specifically asked me not to put them together, and they've chosen other partners - so the only solution is to play her down, with one of the less experienced players (who haven't had the experience of dealing with her corrosive personality). She should be playing at #2 position but she'll have to be in #4 now because the other top players would rather quit the team than play with her! I guess the upside is, we'll always win line 4. Anybody have a similar situation?
