The problem is the bar … With the other ‘B’.
Not seriously. The problem is not the VAR, you have to understand it. The video-arbitration is perfect, do not be mistaken; it is simply technology, an exact science.
Repeat plays, do not create them. There is no error there.
The error, the bad, what we reject (or at least I do) is the misuse of the main arbiters, those who are wrong.
And very often.
Although I have to admit: sometimes, the use of the VAR is not bad … It’s terrible!
For those who think otherwise, I invite you to watch a match of Copa Libertadores in qualifying round. Anyone, yes; in all there are atrocities.
Of not having problems with the transmission rights, in this space would be the match between Boca Juniors – Cruzeiro.
Roja to Dedé for trying to head a ball (after a center!) And collide with Esteban Andrada.
Mamita dear …
Referee, with all due respect, goes to inflate the balls to another side.
Because of the main referees, the best football innovation of recent years is being stained; what once and for all will make disappear those ‘errors’ that harm / benefit millions of teams.
The VAR is the possibility of fair football.
But … What the hell is going on with the referees ?!
Why, after seeing a clear repetition, do they continue to err in their decisions?
It’s called money, corruption, bets. The other side of the football.
Or of the sport, in general terms.
And to think that decades ago they already used the famous “they are hurting us soccer” … They do not know anything.
Is there a possible solution?
The answer is not absolute, and it is as subjective as if evil, once, will go completely out of the world.
You know the answer.
Although football has harbored thousands of errors -forming part of the game, even- to show the same to the world and to the referees! It generates a huge debate.
The World Cup was a success in that sense, but the level of arbitration falls when the best are distributed among leagues.
Change. Enter: errors. Sale: quality.
The only sure thing here is death. And that the fault is not of the VAR.
