Official Referee Consultant Scott Zawadzki returns to the show to answer your officiating-centric questions, including... 

Why don’t referees give more cards for “talking back” to the referee?

If you could referee a match involving one of the bad boys of soccer (past or present), who would it be?

What things about the rules, commonly said by fans or pundits, have little to no basis in the actual rules?

How can I get started refereeing and what advice do you have for beginners?

All that, and much, much more on a jam-packed episode of The Total Soccer Show.
