Leaf removal?

Hi one and all
Was it just me, or did I spot a reference recently
questioning  the relevance of whether plain leaves should
be removed to encourage growth or otherwise of  a
sporting leaf  elsewhere on a plant?
Can anyone confirm?
IE does removal of a green  leaf(leaves) push growth
towards the remaining streaked leaf ,OR just encourage
greater growth of the next green bud.
On a tangent presumably removal of the buds under the
green leaf would be a simpler  and more direct option?
