VAR Thoughts?

Recommended Posts

"I have watched live football since 1977. VAR has ruined live football as a spectacle. The joy removed. We don't celebrate goals anymore. That is disgraceful in itself. I don't believe officials are biased, I believe they are inept. 1st rate players with 3rd rate officiating gives a 2nd rate product. I don't trust the accuracy of the offside decisions - lines are placed manually. Not enough benefit to the attacker. The interpretation of rules has seemed to change many times throughout the season. It looks like they are making it up as they go along. I don't blame the refs (inept chimps that they are), I blame their bosses. I would rather VAR was scrapped. I can tolerate occasional human error, in order to regain the passion and joy of football."

I think the rest of VAR could be tolerated if they just amended looking for somebody’s nipple or bellend being offside. 
 

That’s the biggest excitement killer of them all, by a mile.

I was neutral on a few like that, I expressed my opinion on the questions where I could say how shite it was.

That’s how I played it, exactly. And wrote war and peace in the free text box at the end.

So, 'clear and obvious' is apparently a thing after all, according to dopey Dermot........ commenting on the McGyuire/Welbeck incident:"Mike Dean has a difficult call. He's not sure if Maguire catches Welbeck and the VAR, when he looks at it, has to go with the referee as it's not a clear and obvious error. It's one of those where you have to accept the ref's decision on the field and stand by it.''

 

And yet when the same Mike Dean sent off players in consecutive games - clearly and obviously incorrectly, according to thr FA subsequently - but VAR didn't intervene.  

Or conversely, on the many, many other occasions when VAR has intervened this season when it's been anything but clear and obvious, such as when Marriner was told to check on Fabinho's tackle at Fulham, but chose not to change his decision.

David Coote is on VAR.


The irony that he saw Thiago Silva’s tackle last week, despite it not being as bad as Pickford on VVD, wasn’t lost on me.

Can Nike come up with a shirt based on an Aussie Rules one.

Dont think they can Roger. Footie shirts must have sleeves of a regulation size. Cameroon tried playing in a sleeveless shirt years ago and FIFA sanctioned them for it.

 

But it's just another shit VAR decision really.

Get our normal shirts but show the players pictures of Dave Mackay and roll them up as far as possible.Or hire a hitman for David Coote.

Nobody is offside there.


Agreed.

 

How can they even say the ball had definitely left the guys foot?

 

The most frustrating thing about these calls are the are so easily fixed. Make the defenders line thicker by a foot or something and anything past that is most likely undeniably offside.

The easiest way is to fuck the shitfest off completely.

Thats not going to happen though. 

 

As I said, I'm not against VAR, in fact I'm generally for it, but they've got to listen to the supporters on this etcha-sketch shit.

Referees are not fit for purpose.

 

VAR is a necesity.

 

I don't give a fuck how long it takes, as long as the decision is right.

Can everyone who's not a cunt go to page one of the thread and neg the shit out of this. I'll be negging the 8 who repped it shortly.

VAR is fine but when you have one person calling the shots, it’s as open to corruption as anything. I thought a panel of 3 - 5 officials in separate locations with 30 seconds to make a decision would work, but I think you’d need a much bigger sample to avoid shenanigans. Maybe 49 VAR refs for each match.
