Question: print(plots[display](seq(seq... ...)): works fine! Why??

Short question version:

print(plots[display](seq(seq...   ...)):  works fine!  Why??

Longer, more detailed question:
  print(plots[display](seq(seq...   ...)):   This Maple statement ends in a colon - so I would not have expected any output.  I'm using "pretty" print, as opposed to printf, because it automatically centers the output

    This question is actually an extension of one I posed  yesterday, under the title "How to clear Maple output" - but the question I should have been asking is: "Why is the previous output not automatically cleared?"  The main points of that question are stated below.  Any comments, suggestions gratefully received.

interface(echo=0, verboseproc=0, warnlevel=0, prettyprint=1):

#I thought restart; would automatically have cleared any previous output.

The program reads necessary input (eg no of players, ..)  using:
