Law says pass or place, which is right. If the ball is just randomly released you are even more likely get piles of players over an unplayable ball. Actually I think most referees are pretty good at spotting the extra roll or the extra push of the ball away from the tackle. You need to remember that to be accurate, the ref effectively needs to be one of the first to arrive at EVERY breakdown for 80 minutes. Not even Sam Underhill has to do that!
