    Football needs VAR but laws of the game aren't ready for it


    3 Not allowed!
    It was said introducing VAR would make football boring. That it would take away the drama and deprive fans and pundits of having anything to talk about after matches.

    Yet whenever itís used during a game, itís all anybody can talk about. The video assistant referee (VAR) was brought in to rid the game of questionable goals, dodgy penalty decisions and to remove the subjective calls made by referees in the heat of the moment.

    It hasnít really done any of that. Perhaps itís even had the opposite impact; there is now more debate than ever before.

      Have to confess I prefer “some you lose, some you win” and it tends to balance over a season. Not being able to celebrate a goal without a review is pretty shit imo.

      The outrage of a dodgy goal against or the joy of “getting away with it” have always been part and parcel of football, I’ll miss it.

      But VAR is still down to humans, it isn't cut and dried. And anyway, what is wrong with getting a bad decision once the boys in the Sky studio have analysed it for 5 mins? I'll take a bad decision over this farce every day of the week.

      Just like to point out that i posted the full article for all to read and its been deleted, proving that someone is making some money out of clicks there from this site. All a bit underhand if you ask me.

      Thread title sums it up perfectly!
      In order for VAR to work immediately it should be viewed in real time, not frame by frame, it should not be used to break a decision down to a molecular level or a minor infraction some 3-4 passes prior.
      Dan Burn yesterday is a sadly a good example, in real time it is possible to see the offside without frame by frame review. If only someone had got a touch, any touch........

      I have said this on other threads the laws need changing to accomodatre VAR for it be succesful. mainly for the offside but also the application of handball within the current law.

      Summed it up nicely at the end:

      When matches are worth millions of pounds to a club, having a second look at a decision is for the best. There are teething problems right now but they have nothing to do with the actual technology and everything to do with those writing the laws and the ones carrying out those rules.

      Football needs VAR. Embrace it and the drama surrounding it.
