    No problem with the ball carrying player running off the pitch.

    Having played with some awful wingers in my time I can categorically say "oh yes".

    Exactly. My best guess would be that someone in the crowd had read somewhere that a player can't deliberately throw the ball off the pitch - which would be correct, but kicking the ball off or stepping over the touch line is fine.
