Changing the way players interact with the Referees

So I have thought this for awhile now, and would love to see it implemented, even though I know it would never happen. I don't think players should be allowed to address the referees at all during a game. I get so sick of seeing players throw their arms up and whine at referees for not getting the call they want. I don't see the Blazers do it too much, but it still happens. They are professional athletes, and every time I see them do this it makes them look like little kids.

If a player has an issue, he should have to go through his coach, and the coach is the only person on the court that is allowed to talk to referees, and even this should only be allowed while the ball is not in play. Curious what everyone else would think of something like this.
