I was watching the Heineken Cup rugby final yesterday.
La Rochelle player yellow carded for a high tackle.
There was a review on the large screen and you could quite clearly hear the conversation between the ref and the people in the reviewing studio.
They explained why and what they were looking for and upgraded decision to a red.
The ref called over team captain and explained reason for the change in his decision and all could still be heard. Everyone knew what was going on.
It was done so professionally in rugby's equivalent to our champions league final with the added pressure of both teams being from the same country
If we had the same transparency in football, VAR would be far far better. Wonder why they refuse to do this?

Unlike Rugby, football fans (and possibly players)would kick off if they didn't agree with the comments and decision given, plus our officials dont have the bottle for this 90% of them are shithouses too !
Very few Rugby players argue or contest a refs decision.......

That is because the referees in Rugby would take action against players who argue with their decisions .

If the refs if football were consistent and took action against players who surrounded them ( supposed to be in force but not acted upon ) then players would have to stop or risk missing games.

The refs in football are weak , poor, inconsitent and incapable of applying the rules already in force ie simulation,

Lump on the rags v dippers title chase!
Basically taking into account that the TV frame rate cant handle the speed of the game, something that many on here have been preaching since it’s inception.

What prompted the change, did United lose out on yet another dodgy penalty because they were more than Sterling’s armpit air offside?
