I always assumed that the squad status kind of breaks down into the following categories:

Key player - expect to play every important game and most other games
First team - expect to play the majority of games
Squad rotation - expects to play roughly every other game
Backup - only expects to play if the first teamer is injured or in poor form

Only my players seem to complain about a lack of game time, particularly for the lower two statuses.

Do I have my assumptions wrong?

I think that is about right, but that doesn't mean a player won't be bothered about playing! If you played for a team, and were told that you would only be rotated, you'd still want to play most matches, even if you shouldn't be expecting it :)

True (it happens in my Sunday morning team, where I appear to be a linesman more than a player these days). It's just annoying when they moan about it :D
