    Here is another one players ask all the time when you give a free kick against them. I have seen some inexperienced referees get into lengthy conversations explaining the decision.

    "What was that for ref?" (sometimes shouted from 40 meters away by the captain)

    How do you respond?

    I'll kick it off.

    "It was for a foul mate!" it sometimes gets a few loughs and generally leaves no room for follow up questions.

    It is normally asked by the player not writhing around on the floor!

    "Did you not see what happened then? Even Stevie Wonder would have seen it" normally gets a good laugh and send a good message (while others laugh).
