I haven't seen this game, but the referee and the linesmen can be substituted when they are injured. And they can be injured with a hard shot or by a player, without intention and there can be muscle problems to them also. It doesn't happen too often, but I have seen this happening a few times.

It was something from the Romanian League, but I don't remember the teams anymore. And I have seen European Cup games also where the referee was substituted.

I have seen that before. Referee and linesman. They were replaced by the fourth officials. It is usually after a clash with the players.

I have seen this happening before. Once I saw a player run into the linesman and he had to be substituted. So this is not the first time that I am hearing about this. Cheers! Ram
