While he shouldn't have touched him, I for one absolutely want my team's quarterback working the refs during games, especially close ones.
Make sure the refs know what the other side is up to. They're holding. They're offsides. They're cheap shotting. They're on the sidelines kicking puppies and talking about your mother.
(whether or not they're actually doing any of these things is irrelevant, of course)
Now understand, you won't be the only one. Over on the other sideline, the opposing team is telling the refs that all your players are Satan worshipping, cross-dressing neo-nazis. That's just how it goes.
The caveat here is that the refs are more likely to believe you if you're a winning team / coach / quarterback / whatever. Granted, that's not fair, but that's reality.
