The only consideration should be whether a serious injury has occurred and which combination of players are injuredYou have to be quick on these decisions, i can understand why he didn't blow immediately as the ball fell to the attacker and had a chance of a shot to score, once the attacker played that ball backwards outside the box that should have been the time to blow.
That must be right. I learned from a coach last night that if he tells a player to take a knee at midfield and yells "ref I've got a player injured," the referee is supposed to immediately stop play, even if the other team is in the middle of an attack. At 16s?!?The only consideration should be whether a serious injury has occurred and which combination of players are injured
Unofficially, two players flat out on the edge of the goal area is an instant stoppage and I can't conceive of any guidance out there to the contrary
2 potential head injuries... isn’t it easy to stop play anywhere (with the common sense caveat: unless there’s a tap in)?I'd be playing on if htye were anywhere else.
But in the goalmouth I'd prob be blowing as soon as it leaves the area.
This is just one of those brain fart moments we all have
