I call them in pick up, and when people complain I tell them straight up, "you can't score on me bro, you don't have game"
I would argue this would help change that culture because if you want to "challenge" the call. Video replay comes in and you are still called for the foul PLUS assessed a penalty.

Now you are constantly causing your team penalties because you don't accept/don't understand your fouls.

This should promote learning or a lack of complaining when it starts to damage the team.

I'm sick of whiny bitches too and this would make them accountable.
