I am 150% the $tern complain and sanctions is using the dis service to the fans as an excuse for not making $tern more money in the Ratings and TV, but let's say it is all about fans here...
There had never been such guarantees as TD or TP or Manu would play even then...Players could also be injured too so chances are always there....
Sitting such players on the bench just to see them cheer lead their team in suites is just ridiculous but hey we might see that from now on.
The whole point of Pop sending them home is to completely rest them for the next game. This mission would never be accomplished even if they played 5 or 10 minutes so playing them for even 1 minutes could make them more vulnerable.
Keep Pounding on that Rock Baby!
