When a member of an athletic team sits on the bench for so long that he develops an injury.
The other day I played a basketball video game and following the game I was immediately notified that Steve Novak was injured with back spasms. The problem was he was in street clothes and listed as inactive in the game he was supposedly injured in. He is one of the worst rated players on the game, and with the "injury", his ratings dipped further. He may never see the court again after this. Therefore, he really suffers from chronic benchitis.
