To be honest, neither one sounds like a good choice to me. It's no fun to be on a winning team if you don't a get a fair chance to prove your worth. If people see someone sitting on the end of the bench, the assumption might be that the person is the worst player. Let me just say some people sit at the end of the bench because they are tired of their teammates arguing over the chairs in the middle. These same people build up endurance in the off-season and dominate in summer leagues. They rest on their determination and not on their parents' influence. They also know when it's pointless to waste time on a team focused on one thing or one person.
