You-Call-It #66


#18 blue is injured in an accidental clash of heads. He leaves for treatment some blood is present and a substitute # 12 blue is prepped for a possible replacement. #18 blue is angry at being taken out and says he is ok to continue just needs to get bandaged up free of the blood. He is arguing with #12 to go sit down but #12 goes to the midline thinking to substitute next stoppage . The coach tells #18 I think it best if you come out you got a nasty knock #12 will go in next stoppage but #18 is having none of it. The near AR intercedes between them and suggests they calm down as the language is heated but is told to shut up and mind his own business and #18 pushed roughly past him to get ready to renter to go over and argue with #12 . The CR looks over to see if #18 is ready to return and was going to wave him in when the AR raises his flag and signals they need to talk. The ball is at midfield controlled by blue so the CR stops play and jogs over to the AR who inform him of the fact #12 is waiting to substitute #18 but #18 will not yield and that 18 pushed roughly past him to get ready to renter to go over and argue with #12 . And that the heated exchanges between the players and the AR was told to shut up and mind his own business by #18 blue. As referee, your match, your decision, your reputation! What would you do? How would you restart?

HINT: laying on of hands here is not a salvation technique!
watch from distance then report
sometimes the black hole opens & swallows all in its grasp
