    Can you just imagine how the joy of Nobby's finish against Adelaide would have gone so sour if VAR then said he was offside?

    A victory and two points gone. I shudder to think how the foz would have coped!

    I love Hilly letting rip on this podcast - sometimes I think he is related to the Member.

    He toes the line during the TV coverage but on the podcast he has bagged VAR, bagged Smurfs for not having fans and bagged Fox for controlling kickoff times (also noting how the Jets are treated).

    He has slated VAR since day one and Peacock keeps saying "it's here" - I so wish we could hear him take on Mr VAR, Bozza.

    Get rid of it, and get rid of TV replays so people stop whinging. People might think someone was offside but without definitive proof, the rage usually dies down a lot quicker.

    Watching the local games, it's so much easier to accept goals etc when you know you won't see a replay.

    You right about the replay

    Suburban sport gets by quite fine without 400angles and super slow Mo to see if someone is a beesdick offside etc

    Sometimes watching amatuer sport it is enjoyable as the revision is made by the official and everyone just gets on with it

    Funny story, sometimes when I watch local football, I instinctively look for the replay after a goal etc.

    Lost count of the number of times the crowd boos a decision on the screen, then when I get home and watch I find out the ref was right all along.

    Basically we never see any replays in the stadiums over here.,, maybe highlights at half time or something. But mostly you just watch the game, it isnt broadcasted over the big screen either

    The goal line technology works because its instantaneous.

    Football doesnt need VAR , let the game play. Thats the beauty of it, improve the training and resources for referees if needed, spend the 500 000 on improving other aspects. (not because the gambling lobby wants it)

    Its a natural thing, mistakes often ease out over the game, like individual player mistakes......

    If a player gets a yellow that shouldnt have been given (wasnt worthy of one, mistaken identity etc) then recieves a second yellow later in the game is the var allowed to overturn that?

    Fox claiming that var didnt step in for holoskos yellow. Interesting then, because only other way gillet saw it was on the big screen because he wasnt doing anything about it until straight after that replay was shown.

    Totally agree...after saying how great it was for the first game Bridgey had to backtrack on the coverage.

    The call was not an "obvious error", the video was not conclusive, and it took two minutes to flag it.

    Kill it and kill it now...this will cause mayhem somewhere eventually.
