Post Talking to coaches

I learned years ago that you never win responding to coaches especially during a live ball . Never, ever give snide answers as has been suggested by some replies. If you must say something to the coach do it during a dead ball period and explain nicely that you are officiating the game-not him/her and that no more comments regarding the officiating will be tolerated. Make sure the warning is clear and follow through if he/she continues with the appropriate direct T.
Having said this I still believe disregarding the comments is the best ploy.
