People go the match and watch a game of football. They go the pub afterwards and part of the post match debate is the referee performance. ‘F**k me the ref was sh*te today’ or even the ref had a good game. It’s been that way for 200 years.
Meanwhile the fan sitting at home watches on sky. The referee has made a huge blunder and those fans can see the replay. They kick off and moan all over social media. ‘The officials in this country are shocking, something needs to be done about it’ and so on and so on. When the reality is, the officials were always fairly god damn decent. Yes they made mistakes from time to time but in general they got most things right.
Var was brought in after huge campaigns for it - But it should never have been brought into the game. Football is the best sport in the world for many reasons but the controversy, the pace of the game, human error are all reasons why.
Since VAR has been in the game, I don’t know one match goer who’s in favour of it. It’s f**king terrible. You hear the moans around the ground even before the decision has been made by var and that’s before we know whether it will go in our favour or not!
It’s sh*te and needs binning. Ruined the f**king game that was perfectly fine how it was.
I think VAR is needed in the modern game but only if it is used properly, at the moment it clearly isn't because the game is being run by those who have absolutely no experience of actually playing the game, to them its all rules & regulations and no common sense whatsoever,
The system itself is ok, not much different from other sports, rugby union a perfect example, they use a TMO, and is linked to the ref & assistants,
How they work it is perfect, and come to the fairest decision every time, incidents/close calls/ foul play are shown on the huge screens so fans know immediately what is happening, then between the refs and the TMO decide what the fairest course of action is, it takes no more than a couple of minutes, and they move on, it's so simple, so why the f**k is that not possible in football, it is, but the powers at be want total control and are hell bent in doing it their way and f***in it up as usual,
Those f***in idiots at Stockley park have never kicked a ball in anger, they are clueless to what actually happens on a football pitch, put a ex professional footballer and a ex referee in there as advisors at the very least, imo we don't need the clueless Stockley park Tossers, just follow the example of Rugby , simples !!
