Before VAR the cheating was there, but there wouldn't be the second viewing, the debate, etc. Did we see any debate after we were crucified by Foy a few years ago? No.
They are doing this fuck ups on purpose to show the system is fucked and I will not be surprised if they will go back to no VAR, for them to cheat as they did back then.
VAR works and will work when we will have they rugby way, with live coverage from the discussion between the ref and the VAR room. But that will never happen.
Exactly. They have implemented VAR in the shittest way they possibly could so that they can say that they gave it a go and it didn't work. They will come up with some shit about the Premier League being too fast and we'll revert to the crap we had before.
They need/needed to start with a completely new slate and bring in new people. Having the old boys ref network operate it all is a farce. Nobody should have a clue who today's VAR official is FFS. It should just be a group of "impartial" people reviewing incidents and reporting back.
It had added no improvement to the quality of decisions at all and I'm not sure how that is even possible unless it's deliberate. How the hell is it even possible to mess it up this much?
