Was this a ploy to give the players a breather?

Donít understand why we didnít have them on Sat unless I was missing something!

I believe this is down to Covid restrictions as they want to minimise the hand contact on the ball. Usually, there are spare balls dotted around the perimeter of the pitch, but didnít notice that on Saturday.

When I watch my local non-league team, you arenít even allowed to throw the ball back when it goes into the crowd. A steward has to retrieve it.

Other Premier league matches had ball-boys or 'pitchside spherical projectile monitors' present at their matches so I don't see why Palace couldn't have organised them as well!
Or couldn't they get in the ground via their digital wallets on time!!!
The balls are supposed to be sanitised however they still used them when returned from the crowd without replacing/wiping them!
The Brentford player even stuffed it up his shirt to wipe it before throwing it, is he even vaccinated?
If they were really that worried about it surely these ball-boys could wear gloves.
