Fair point, a clear offside could be when there is no element of doubt, be that half a body or intact all the body to be offside to change the on field decision.And how do you define a clear offside?
And what happens when someone decides goal A in one match is a clear offside and goal B in another match isnt?
Oh yeah, shit storm ensues.
I mean Verts once had a goal disallowed for offside when several yards onside in his own half!
The law of offside needs changing in order for VAR to be applied sensibly imo.
By definition there has to be a line drawn for offside. You cant introduce a grey area where its down to opinion (which is exactly what they have done with the 'clear and obvious' bollox).
Whats the point of having VAR if thats what you're going to do?
Then there's the application. Why the fk it takes so long is a mystery. Surely technology can tell you straight away? Why do we even need 4 dicks sat around a table discussing it? Should be 10secs max.
I was pro VAR and I still am but the application, fk no.
As soon as I heard the plan to have 4 people (not even a fkin odd number so you get a majority) sat remotely reviewing it, ref cant look at screen and that bloody clear and obvious shit I knew it was being set up to fail.
I'm a conspiracy nut and believe its been fked intentionally I really do. Unless they really are thick as shit. Tough call lol.
