the refs have their standards as to what is considered obsene, profane or abusive language/gesture.
There is a difference between a threat and a gesture.
This isn't F-you it is a gesture that everyone can see and clearly conduct you should not see in the course of a game. there is no possible argument that raising the finger doesn't constitute a rude gesture under rule 75.
The ref either didn't see it (the play was over) or applied his judgement incorrectly but it should have been a minor penalty.
