That farcical decision from VAR last night epitomised why ( in football at least ) they get it so wrong !!
Now I’m going to rant & rave over rules/laws because they themselves become irrelevant when you factor in the whole reason for playing the game in the first place….to score goals….and VAR takes the very essence of that away…..and of course the exciting & entertainment for those who pay to be entertained….
Apparently Kane’s knee-cap got in the way( a extremely important part of your leg ) let me just add at this point, of scoring the winning goal, ….of course VAR will tell us he (Kane) was offside and allowing the goal would be unfair to Sporting, but I’m guessing if it happened up the other end Sporting would want the goal to stand, and that is why VAR will never give a correct decision on scenario’s such as last night’s, WHY ?….
Because those in the VAR box have never played the game and/so don’t understand the emotions involved for the 22 combatants on the field, they just don’t get, never have, never will, and until a ex - professional player and a good quality football manager are sat next to a Referee and a totally independent VAR representative in that VAR box, absolutely f**k all will change….the very fact it took VAR so long to make that pathetic decision tells you that it WAS a goal, but spineless VAR robbed Spuds, their fans and everyone else watching of the very essence the game was invented for, F**kin Idiots killing the game we all love !!!
