F**k me, after watching that, and no I didn’t see the actual game, so I my thoughts on this are genuine, this for me prove without a shadow that refereeing in the EPL is fu**ed, But guess what, the equally inept PGMOL along with their puppets are not fit for purpose, that footage is the same footage we all see, so why the F**k do they get it so so wrong time and time again, they in that wee box at Stockley park watching the game have to see what the tv cameras show, live, as it happens, in slo mo, recorded, slowed right down frame by frame, like they do in Rugby, so how the F**k do they miss blatant unlawful tackles, feigning injury, dubious hand balls, blatant cheating etc etc WHY CAN’T they see what the rest of us see, I just cannot fathom it out at all, we’re all watching the same F***ing incidents,
My only thoughts are that the PGMOL know that time is running out for them because they know they cannot overrule the tv cameras, before we all just had to judge the on field refs decision right or wrong and get on with it, but now with all the technology at hand, it’s more controversial than ever, and that cannot be right, so, given that the referee’s need help because the game is faster, players are fitter, have longer endurance etc etc, but what of the refs themselves, they obviously have to fit certain fitness criteria themselves but is it of a standard that matches those of the players, me thinks not,
and there lie’s another part of the problem, I think ditching VAR is a no no, it’s here to stay, for me it’s obvious, the system is fine, VAR operators are fine, as pointed out by Longy, so we either employ younger fitter referee’s to match the athletes on the pitch, or find a more competent body other than the PGMOL to oversee proceedings at Stockley Park,
You don’t need to be Sherlock f***in Holmes’s to work out what’s going on here, the PGMOL are akin to our useless government, they like to control everything they are the equivalent of the school bully, we will use VAR as and how we wish, so long as we can control the lab rats they send to operate the system!!!
