Removed from a game or removed from play; can be applied to any situation where one is not permitted to participate in an activity.

Derived from the sporting world where players often sit on a bench when not playing. A player can be benched for many reasons including but not limited to: playing or performing poorly or sucking, breaking a rule, disobeying the coach or leader, unsportsmanlike conduct, not following the game plan, showing up late, etc.
