This flies in the face of most generally accepted business theories. Interesting take.it isn’t about more money. More money is the answer that brings in more “bad” umpires because people think it is easy money.
Depending on "the love of the game" to be the driving force behind stocking umpire rosters is Pollyanna thinking in my opinion. This country revolves around the good ol' American dollar. Always has and always will. You want better umps, you offer more money. Simple as that.
Thinking that people won't do a good job if they are incentivized by money is a wild opinion.
