Gripes:
At the beginning of the league, gripes allow a GM to ask the commissioner to consider why a player should be rated higher than he currently is. If a player’s weight, height, salary, or anything else is incorrect, please notify the commissioner as well.

After this, gripes are used to change players’ positions based on the GMs wishes. A player’s position does affect how he grows through training camp.
