Well unfortunately in the past 5 years, a lot of those refs from the 80s and 90s have begun to retire and their replacements have become softer and more sensitive thus leading to the players not barking back to them because these refs won't go back and forth and will just give them more penalties or a misconduct on top of the initial penalty for doing so

The players don't respect the refs today and a lot of it has to do with the refs inconsistency
