There is too much indicision based upon this, in my opinion something that has been used without desired effect during the current (Bundesliga, Serie A, MLS, that is a laugh anyway lol), it was an abhorent failure at the Confederations Cup too should be seen as a suitable variation to deal with important decisions, in fact it is a f@@king joke.

In theory it is 'peanut hugging', rugby fans that have infiltrated this movement, basically football fans should hold each others hands, all be fat and re-joice that violence never happens in any sport. Fans of football are scum (because the Sun/Scum and Conservative Party say so). It is abysmal, even though it wont VAR needs eradicating quick.

I don't think the problems with the first iteration of the technology mean its a bad idea to have video assisted referees. I don't want to 'debate' contentious decisions, I want every tool available to the officials to make the correct call.

Massive nay from me. Always felt video refs would be terrible for the game before they were tested, now I've seen it tested I'm even more convinced.

 

VAR does not suit football at all, it's nothing like Rugby or whatever else people use to "prove" it works. It doesn't even need any more trials, just knock it on the head.

This. Its still in the early stages and can only improve. Its probably here to stay as well.

At the risk of sounding old image.gif I think they're better off leaving things as they are. It can work in other sports but nothing is infallible. There'll always be refereeing mistakes (I mean, Chris Foy for one) smileys_whistling_825578.gif but it takes too much time and honestly, if everything is done and dusted we'll have no contentious decisions or talking points on a Saturday night [other days are available].

True WIR on your points. I think it goes to show peanut-hugging fans (rugby fans), should stop trying to infiltrate our beautiful game with their crap ideology. The reason they can wank each other off and make love to each other in the stands during games is because there is a lack of passion. Football has that at all levels, rugby does not, leave our sport alone you %&#@.

I'm intrigued by the phrase 'peanut-hugging' as I'd never heard it before. Clearly we've moved on, tree-hugging is so eighties! 

 

I think we may also share a dislike towards the peanut game as I had always been dubious as a young'un seeing men huddled in a circle and groping each other; all part of the game apparently.

 

And I believe balls are meant to be round anyway. Just ask cricketers, golfers or tennis players.

Rugby fans are hardly the reason for VAR. TMO's have been in rugby for years.

After listening to all the Southampton players moaning and whinging about not having VAR yesterday I now hope it's implemented as soon as possible just so I never have to hear the crying again (seriously they were lined up one after the other on MotD - perfect sales pitch). Although, what they will cry out for when the VAR gets decisions wrong I don't know.

Exactly, in theory VAR creates more controversy than it rids the game of.

It's not been used long enough to come to a proper conclusion. The technology will get better and attitudes will change. A large part of the problem is that many traditionalists aren't giving it a chance, therefore magnifying any issues.

How will the technology get better? Genuine question because really it's just some blokes watching a TV replay, we've already mastered that tech.

 

It just adds another opinion/interpretation, one that wont always be right but will always be delayed. Really doesn't seem worthwhile at all but like I said I'm for it now if we don't have to hear players moan about it anymore :lol

Yeah, surely wanking off other blokes and making love to them in the stands at a Rugby game would require some sort of passion.

In the immediate term it will be about ironing out the processes and how VAR becomes part of the game.

 

In the long term, I think things like smart pitches and equipment could help make decisions in real time. I honestly think that's how offside decisions will be made in the future.

It's used down here in the A-League, and has basically undermined the on field referee's decisions to the point where they are crapping their dacks over whether they make the right decision. At least 3-4 times the VAR has overruled the on field decision to give players a yellow card and upgraded them to a red. In reality it should only be used on scoring plays.
