Best Answer

The purpose a throw in is to get the ball back in play. FIFA decided to "punish" the team who was unable to keep the ball out of bounds, so they awarded corner kicks and goal kicks for when the ball was kicked past the goal lines, and the awarded a throw in to the team who didn't kick the ball out of bounds since they didn't lose it in the first place.
