Most referees like to unwind after the game before getting involved in any discussions. We expect our referees to be left alone until after they have changed and joined the crowd. On one occasion I had to shepherd some alickadoos away from the ref as he walked off the pitch. By the time he had showered and joined them in the club house they had calmed down somewhat.

The changing room is YOUR space and they should respect that.
