How do you question an official during a hockey game?

The official(s) (referee) are supposed to refrain from discussing any questions regarding penalty calls etc. with players. Those types of discussions should only take place between the Captain, Alternate Captains and/or the Coaching staff. If your captain believes there is an issue with any call, particularly one that can change the game like a penalty stroke or penalty shot, they should quietly ask the referee about it at an appropriate time, such as when time is next stopped or while preparations are being made for the play and the referee is not busy. If another player believes there is a problem, they should ask their captain to speak on their behalf.

Why is celebrating a penalty in football?

In highschool and college, football is a team sport played by student athletes. It is the belief of the organizations that rule the games that 'excessive celebration' of a team is bad sportsmanship, and celebration of one player is singling out that one player instead of the whole team effort. Because they have seen it too much, they determined it should be ruled unsportsmanlike like other unsportsmanlike penalties.

Does a soccer captain have the rights to question a refree?

That depends on how the captain goes about it. Keep in mind that no referee will ever change his desicion, NEVER EVER. So you have to ask yourself what is the point of approaching the referee at all? A captain doesn't really have the right, i'd word it more like he is afforded the luxury of approaching the referee. He or she can seek clarification on why a penalty was given however he must be very careful how he goes about it and he shouldn't ever question the referee's desicion only ask for clarification. The referee can simply dismiss his request for clarification and if the captain continues to push the issue he can be penalised.
