    I was alluding to why they only showed the one angle on a loop to the referee in a previous page. ;-)

    VAR should enhance the game, delivering results that reflect what happens during the game. Unfortunately, from what we have seen of FIFA and Uefa VAR applications it's gonna destroy it.

    So much pace, so little end product.

    last

    That seems to be standard for VAR when the organisers want a specific outcome! Seem to remember some Turkish ref only being offered an obscure view of an incident in a vaguely remembered CL game from last season.

    I was doing my best not to recreate my posts about that long forgotten CL match from the VAR thread.

    No one has time for that. ;-)

    Rapidly losing faith in VAR. Appalling use of it again in the France Norway match.

    I have almost no faith left, to be honest.

    Every third time it is used the current implementation comes off as deeply flawed, bent, or both.

    VAR will cause more controversy and arguments than there was before VAR.
