Here is the video segment from that moment:

Referee Advice

Parents say “never spank your kids when you are angry” – same goes for referees. If you’re angry at a player – he’s gotten under your skin – you need to pretend you’re not angry and make a point of dealing with his captain. Sometimes you can pretend you are angry just to make a point. But don’t talk to player in anger, that’s when you have to remind yourself that you are the professional – you’re not just another guy out there running around – you’re doing what you’ve been taught. — Bruce Carter (NCRRS)
