This infuriates me... forget the vote, 50% of plastic Rag fans voted a goal. 50% of plastic Bin Dippers fans voted no goal. VAR should be used for when a ref misses an obvious decision, which this was. Under VAR's own rules, this should have fallen under the "was there a foul in the build up"?? Answer = 100% yes. So it should have been disallowed. I see you have omitted that after Dermot said this, he then said in his opinion it was a clear foul!! He's not objective, he's part of the problem!!As much as Dermot is a complete cûnt, he does here from ref watch explain exactly why I think it was correct that the goal stood for the scum:
DERMOT SAYS: "What I need to explain is that this isn't a VAR decision, it's Martin Atkinson's decision. When it goes in the net, VAR asks whether it was offside, no, was there a handball, no, was there a foul in the build-up - and the referee is the closest person to it.
"He says no, there was a vote this morning with 50,000 people voting, about half said yes, half said no, so the VAR can't call it clear and obvious and go against the referee. I did think it was a foul, though.
"Martin waved it away, and once he does that it's out of the VAR's hands. It's such a subjective decision, such a controversial decision, someone says yes, someone says no, they can't go with it."
