Although I don't see where the debate lies. When I was officiating I didn't argue with people. I would let them tell me what was bothering them and let them know their concerns had been noted, but if they started trying to bitch and argue I would yellow card them pretty quick.

That's why I like kendo. No protests from the players, at all. If you feel like arguing with the ref, you're done for the day - I've never actually seen it. Don't like a decision? You can have your coach/sensei protest to the head table, where it will be duly noted and ignored.
No coaching from the sidelines, either. No victory celebrations.

If we're doing shiai practice, then we will call the points and sometimes explain to the players why something was or was not a point.
During actual shiai as I said before, you shut up and accept whatever the shimpan give you. Doesn't mean there isn't some locker-room grumbling but on the court, no way. Unless you're the Koreans at Worlds last year but that's another kettle of fish.

Not only was she disqualified, but her entire regional federation was banned from that competition for the next ten years. There hasn't been another incident since.
