I don't think VAR is the issue as it has been a success in many sports. The main issue is the inconsistency of the rules in place such as what is classed as handball. It has always baffled me how a ref will give something as handball and then in another situation in the exact same scenario it won't be given as a handball and we have seen this transferred to VAR decisions. The officiating of the game is a joke compared to other sports.
VAR isnt the issue, its the implementation of it. It should be an independent "company" that run the VAR system rather than referees. The refs will always just back up their ref mate on the field.
Also, the inconsistency of decisions in this sport is ridiculous, especially around fouls inside vs outside the box, and handball of course. Offside is black and white and VAR should totally eradicate any issues with that.
System itself is fine, the problem is the officials using it and the offside/handball laws in football generally.
Disagree. The very essence of the system, even staffed by the best and most consistent refs, its destined for failure (if its objective is eliminate referee errors). Theres too many subjective laws in the game, the nature of the game itself doesn't allow this technology to work. Theres too much of it open to interpretation. Phrases like 'clear and obvious error' , 'intent' , 'unnatural position' are subjective I.e will never be 100% correct, hence the system, in my opinion, even if optimised to maximum effectiveness , will always add more controversy and confusion than it takes away. And that isnt even digging into the effect its having on the flow of the game and the experience for match going fans.
It needs scrapping - (copied my response from another thread as coudlnt be arsed to type it out again)
