I really dont understand football anymore !.
I couldnt real see the contact for the penalty that was given but was pleased City got it.
The Sterling 'penalty' the defender was climbing all over Sterling, made at least 3 contacts on Sterling eventually knocking Sterling over. I thought it was a stone wall penalty. But it wasnt.
I dont understand how VAR couldnt see that. I dont understand why the ref wasnt sent to the monitor. I guess I just dont understand football !
it's not football that is the issue but the inconsistent and circumspect nature of the officials and their supporting cast of VAR operatives .
They make the decisions and rods for their own backs, and that is the only thing consistent about PiGMOL and their lackies.
Did you ever get a reply to your email?I would recommend that anyone with concerns over this should write a polite email to IFAB, who can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Head honcho David Elleray has previously replied to me from this email address.
It might be interesting to hear the views of the PL also, but they are probably the instigators.
Here is mine.
There are reports emerging today, that suggest some VAR decisions are being made (or influenced) by "Match Commanders". Apparently, these "Match Commanders" have no refereeing qualifications or authority, yet they seem to be able to determine VAR outcomes.
Can you please advise as to the legitimacy of this practice by the Premier League, and where is it covered in The Laws of the Game?

VAR commanders with no authority in the Premier League are astonishingly over-ruling referees, it has been claimed. Former ref Mark Halsey has learned VAR Andy Madley was told by commander Adam Car…www.google.com
I can understand inconsistencies between matches but it the inconsistencies in the same match that does my head. If the foul on Jesus is a penalty so is the foul on Sterling, its simple in my eyes.
I thought VAR was meant to stop inconsistencies.
Perhaps the premier league need to look at bring in foreign refs to do VAR because at the moment having the refs mates doing VAR isnt working.
