Do you really like that style of refereeing? Does the talking-to not say to that player and the world, "I'm letting this guy get in my head."?
Speaking as an official from another sport, if I was the lone guy in the middle of those behemoths, I'd wanna establish alpha male credibility ASAP

Although the complete lack of any kind of reaction from the player after being dressed down like that is astounding. No player in a north american sport would 'take' that without something else to say.
