    I think it's well beyond the players or officials.

    I have watched the game for over 40 years and honestly, have never seen more controversy over ref decisions as there are now. So the whole point of the exercise is not being remedied. Like other sports rules are being changed to suit the technology, not the other way around.

    The whole thing is purely for the benefit of TV and betting agencies.

    Betting agencies are arguing that VAR negatively impacts them. I don't believe for a moment that any group with their level of investment at stake in the game would ever have allowed the introduction of it in the first place if that was really the case.

    Just watching the cricket today

    There was a DRS decision on Sandtner that got knocked back on review

    I think it was out at the time but the replays were not 100% conclusive to show it as being out.

    The commentators kept looking and looking and looking and eventually found other angles to show it as out

    See the problem is now is that the umpires and 3rd umpire were precisely right
    There was no clear error there from the inglfield umpire so they let the call stand

    I think the biggest problem is the tv coverage where they focus on trying to split hairs on decisions instead of just accepting the refs ****ed up

    You go watch a game at the ground and you just accept the poor decisions from the ref and get on with it. Not now thanks to VAR the game is tampered with repetitively

    Grant just got sent.

    SFC Agent Speedy..."is that a definite error by the referee?

    Then...."after his head knock does Grant know what he is even doing?"

    Slater...."he's off"

    The fact it wasn’t an automatic red shows how bad a league officiating is.

    Ams is the worst ref to blow into a whistle at present. Same below average ref sent Ronnie for a bit of lip v City yet the the bloke can't see how bad Grant's challenge(s) were.

    Defies logic this bloke is officiating at this level.

    I hate fox coverage with the even worse then previous Sydney centric coverage...the nickname calling is vomit worthy.....hopefully if the clubs take over this is something that could be addressed.

    Tara should get a life ban for her piss poor effort in the Stajic / Matildas fiasco.

    Ryan Grant should get 3 weeks for the tackle, plus 6 weeks for the shit haircut, and a further 4 weeks for technically having two first names and no last name.

    Your right Tara, Garb and L Zelic should have all been given the ass from there respective roles in the media for using there positions to further the false claims. It would appear not one of them done there own homework to validate any claims before jumping on the " if only you knew " brigade.

    That man hater who started this should have her member of the order stripped.
