get on the reserve / has a point
Here are a few sentences from an English text:
Tony didn’t get picked for the school football team and he’s disappointed.
“I don’t understand why Miss Roberts didn’t pick me. It’s not fear. I didn’t even get on the reserve.”
You see, Tony, Miss Roberts has a point.”
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold?
get on = be on
get on the list = be on the list
have a point = have grounds
Thank you for your efforts.
