VAR

That's a lie now pay up
I’ve shown it, but then you already know that.

Deciding instead to act clever on the internet and go back on a £20 donation to a cancer charity.
Is this still going on, are you @Bear's alternative login Bounty Hunter,? :lol:

From what I saw, hudson88 posted his mate's betting slip screenshot after you asked and then another lasses from Twitter as additional proof that SkyBet allowed bets settled after the goal was scored but before it was disallowed. SkyBet even confirmed this in the lasses tweet that I linked to so I'd have thought this bet should have also been settled. Or is it after the 90th post about it now? :lol:

Last night was awful.

Wolves score an absolute pearler and all the excitement and emotion is sapped out of it while they draw lines on the pitch for 2 minutes fannying about.

It will ruin the beautiful game.

Ruined the game LOL
The logical result of the Sky/MOTD constant dissection/criticism of every refereeing decision.
Now they're complaining it "removes the human element" that makes it so enjoyable.
Can't have it both ways; that particular Genie is out of the bottle.
I think the issue is despite the fact I disliked the disallowed goal decision due to the fact they were holding onto each other and it could have hit either is that the VAR referees are terrified to not give them because of fear of being crucified by the media so they give everything just to be safe.
VAR should target this specifically.
That would benefit everyone.

Nail on head. Why couldn't people just stop bitching about every single decision. We got what we deserve. Why should the referees have to listen to years of absolute bullsh*t every single weekend, have managers on the pitch shoving fingers in their faces every half time.

The same people bitching about VAR will no doubt be exactly the same ones fuming about a linesman getting one split second decision wrong out of 20 and shouting about 'huge financial implications of mistakes'. Most people have got what they asked for.

It works fine in cricket and rugby league; football should be no different.

In Rugby and to an extent Cricket people have generally been more accepting of the reality that someone needs to make a decision and sometimes you might not like it.

Football has a totally different media and fan base mindset. Any contentious decision is lambasted by those who don't get it their own way.

Should work like cricket teams get two challengers get it right decision stands/changes and get it wrong you lose the decision and the review.

Of course they can, post match analysis and scrutiny is fine as the game is over.

A cricket match is stop start by its very nature, and each days play lasts around 8 hours. Having that amount of reviews over a 90 minute game would be ridiculous IMO.

Great post. The fact they were even pondering whether it stood or not is laughable given the margins.

VAR hasnt fixed that issue though. Look at last season when Man Utd got a pen against PSG. That was after the ref used VAR and everyone thought it proved it shouldnt have been a pen and yet the ref gave it.

And what happens when a team has 2 challenges left with minute to go? They just challenge everything in sight on the off chance that something has happened. They'd get a corner, swing it in, make sure there was bodies everywhere, probably not even challenge for the ball then just ask the ref for a review. Guaranteed penna every time.

Simple solution is to fuck it off all together, admit that they/we got it wrong, and never speak of it again

Everyone? No, maybe majority but not everyone. It's irrelevant going forward anyway. VAR in the prem will not touch decisions that are not black and white. The only time pens will be affected by VAR is for blatant dives ie. Where there is literally no contact whatsoever. To reiterate VAR will only be used on decisions which are totally black and white.

Like goals being ruled out for brushing a finger nail before it lands at the feet of a player who then buries it.

Yeah. It's black and white. Did it touch his arm or not. There isn't much debate to be had. Do you understand the difference between interpretation and matters of fact?
