I can understand treating vomit with the care it deserves and the whistle was blown after the shot, before the rebound so the crew didnt disconcert the shooter.

Can you imagine if the lead slow whistled the play and the rebound went out there to the vomit area and some players fell in it? A 3:00 delay would have been a 20 minute delay as the affected players would have had to get the Silkwood Shower treatment.
