It's not sour grapes Dbildo, but more of a question, and a fair one I thought? Without raising these questions the rule makers will not consider future implications such as those raised or when the stakes are considerably higher. The rules are problematic, and do not allow the official any room to manoeuvre. Leaving decisions like this up to managers is highly subjective and anything could happen under different circumstances, and as you point out nobody would like to see the wrong practice applied here. A standardised approach via rule or policy would remove the risk of a manager making the wrong call. As noted, Dikov made the right call, and great sportsmanship unfolded.
