When coaches don't listen.... becomes the refs fault!

I know this crew as I signed up to work the chains in two of their playoff games in my district in recent years. For semi-finals and finals our state sends crews out of district. Any way, this is a very good crew and my good friend (the BJ who transferred to the shore a few years ago) told me they clearly reminded the coaches when they received this assignment that O/T was NOT permitted as per the all-star rules in their pre-game meeting with coaches. You would think they would listen. Noooooo. Instead, they begged the officials to play the O/T which only made people more frustrated.

Kudos to them for not irresponsibly putting their necks on the line and getting into potential trouble by allowing O/T.

REF: "Okay coaches. I talked this over with my crew, and we all agree that there should be overtime, if necessary".

OT: QB gets face-masked on a sack, and ends up with a broken neck.

QUESTION: Who ends up in court, the officials or the coaches? No brainer, it's the zebras.

This needs to be worked out in advance. The sponsors will pay for the insurance and the policy will be in the hands of the officials prior to the game starting. No big deal if you do it right.
