VAR Thoughts?

There's also A LOT more money involved in the Premier league. A decision that takes 5 mins to get right is far more valuable to the bottom clubs whose stay in the division could be dependant on it. Look at villa 2 seasons back when the ball crossed the line and a goal wasn't given. I know it was goal line tech at fault that day, but had var decided to look at it, that extra 2mins would've relegated villa and saved Bournemouth. Look at them now! The club chairmen don't give a fuck if we can't celebrate if it keeps the money rolling in

 

I don't get this line of thinking that says all subsequent events would've remained the same even if this one instance changes.

Exhibit A - Peter Walton.

 

This is the type of guy that PGMOL (or whatever they are called) like to recruit.

He is clearly a yes-man. He isn't selected because he'll think for himself. He's selected because he'll blindly do what his bosses say.

 

This is the type of person they want for their officials.

 

They don't want people with acumen. People who can take in data and interpret it. They want people who will do what they say. Even if it is bad for footy.

 

Think about it. Let's say that your doing your job, and something unexpected happens. You make a decision in the heat of the moment. You aren't 100% and it's playing on your mind.

Luckily, you have the benefit of a recording of the event. Right on tap. On a screen near you. In this situation, you'd go to the screen. See if happened the way YOU thought it did and make sure that your decision reflected this new info.

 

Now reflect on how many times a ref has actually gone to the on field cam. Studied it in detail. Taken their time.

 

Conversely ..how many times they have let someone else make that call for them.

 

Weak minded fools.
