I was told (second hand) from someone who was told by a top flight official.

Basically, if a player is injured and carried on playing and made the injury worse there was fear that the referee could be held responsible. I think there was an incident in USA (but litigation can be a career over there).

By forcing the player to leave the field and requesting to come back on then it was clearly the players/medical staff decision totally clearing the referee.

If you think about it, it does/did explain the ruling as it could hardly be said to speed the game up.

The rule is now that a fouled player does not have to leave the field. It was strange at the game I attended yesterday was to see a long hold up for two players, then when recovered one was booked and only he left the field.

^^^ Many at boro do not know that change...... not that is surprising ^^^^
