    Ah, thanks. Differentiating between a hold and a shirt pull is downright weird. I hadn't considered that would ever happen.

    The answer is to get close and pull the shirt hem down vertically - no triangle, no foul?!

    Going back to the Rodrigo incident:

    Neil Swarbrick - the ex referee and now chief of VAR said:

    “The arm was around the top of the body, yet Rodri fell forward. He didn’t fall backwards like he was pulled, he fell forward, so he felt contact, can he win the header? No he can’t, so he’s gone down looking for a penalty."

    He's basically accused Rodrigo of cheating. Shouldn't he be forced to resign? How can he fall backwards without defying the laws of gravity?

    Everyone laughed at the woefulness of that attempt. It was one of the early signs that they weren't overruling refs.

    I have yet to see a player after being pushed fall backwards. Surely this would be a miracle if that ever happened. So now you know if you feel a push fall backwards and that should result in a penalty.

    Nor will you. VAR is there to confirm onfield decisions. No onfield decisions, as yet, have been overturned.

    I long for the days when there were linesmen a referee in black with a whistle and a book, they can shove this man in a shed and onfield nonsense where the sun doesn't shine for all I care.

    Going back to the offsides, when it came in we had a discussion on here about frame rates and the inherent uncertainty.

    It's taken the media about 2 months to catch up with us, but here's the argument re-run as to why VAR can not make a definitive VAR call.

    What they can do is call an offside but with a degree of uncertainty - all measurements carry such an error budget.

    You do know that story was 17 August, they were aware, just didn't want to do anything about it

    It seems fairly obvious that if someone as strong as professional footballer is pulling you backwards, you're pushing forward to get away from then, and then they release their grip the motion will carry you forward and not backwards. What sort or nonsense is this?

    stupid, even though his hand is over the shoulder there was never any momentum from the defender going backwards, his forearm is clearly pushing rodri forward as well as his left knee in back of rodri's leg.
