If you encounter a coach who is constantly questioning your calls skate up close enough and whisper "suck a dick" or something in that manner.
If your with a more experienced ref discuss situations with him after the game you were unsure about. Also take a glance at him every once in a while and take note of what he does on the ice when you have the chance.
Yeah, don't do this
