Many of you might remember a few months back when the NFL took a blind-sided sack because they failed to renew their contract with the NFL Referees Association before the season started, thus having to hire replacement refs to officiate games. It was a disaster.
Through no fault of their own, the replacement refs were thrown into a situation where they were suddenly incapable of doing a satisfactory job because they lacked experience in officiating NFL games. They were unclear on the rules. They were not accustomed to the speed of an NFL game, and consequently, calls were missed and yellow flags were incorrectly tossed in games everywhere. By the end of the week 3 games, there was such a nationwide uproar over the replacement refs, that it put pressure on the NFL and the NFL Referees Association to quickly come to a contract agreement.
In a sight probably never to be seen again, NFL refs were welcomed back with a standing ovation by fans as they entered NFL fields for the week 4 games1.
Do you ever feel like you are working with a replacement insurance agency? Are they inexperienced or not up to the speed of the game? Do they know the rules? Are they a full-service agency that offers value added services like access to a network of ancillary business services like BizAssure, HR 360, payroll services, Workers Comp E-MOD analysis, among others?
