Really? That's rather stupid.
If you've got a team of 12 players and some are obviously better than others, the better ones get more minutes.
I usually run a ten-deep roster, which means two of my guys are going to only get five or so minutes a game most times. That's a realistic thing from everything I've seen of college basketball in real life, but apparently you get punished for it in the sim.
do you think that in real life the kids who are getting just 5 minutes are happy? They may put up with it, but do you think they like it?
in the SIM they will be fine with it if they are FR - no need for any time in the absence of a promise
if they are SO, JR, SR they may/will be at least somewhat unhappy.
In every level of sports at which I have played, coached or had my kids play, the players want playing time and will get unhappy - and it often doesnt matter if they are clearly less capable than the guys who are getting minutes.
