Another nonsense handball at Selhurst Park. Football is so shit now isn't it. It's genuinely just boring at this point. 90% of the game, in this country in-particular is just about handballs. I mean at least the government's piss poor handling of COVID can be blamed on how unprecedented the situation is. What's footballs excuse for this nonsense?

 

It's laughable, you watch more and more games and wonder how anyone takes it seriously. They've made such a mess of the rules.

how can you restart the game once the whistle has gone. Is the final whistle no longer the final whistle? Makes no sense at all

The rule is that something can be reviewed  if it happened immediately before the halftime/final whistle, I mean it makes sense to allow a check to happen that would have happened at any other point in the game. Tbf Kavannagh messed up cos he's only supposed to blow once and put his finger to his ear but I can't see how people think a check shouldn't take place just cos it happened right at the end.

ya this is a semantics-ish argument.  The final whistle has gone you can't go back!!!  Lol, yes you can.  Why couldn't you?  It's one of those things that if they WEREN'T allowed to do it, and something like that happened, people would flip out.

 

The real issue is where the extra 1 minute-ish of time came from before Maguire corner, and also that it wasn't even a corner to begin with.

They're taking the fun out of the game. Of course it's serious and can influence promotions/title wins/relegations (imo if you're pinning your hopes on a VAR decision RE Bournemouth and Villa's "ghost goal" then you deserve to go down for being in that position over the course of a season anyway) but the interesting and fun side of the game is dying out. It's so pedantic and for me it wasn't brought in for this. But overall decisions are still inconsistent and always will be because, like I've always said, it's still a shit ref making a decision but this time he's just sat behind a screen.

Another issue is that you can't change it throughout the season, we've got to stick with it until May.

 

The desire to get virtually everything right is leading to this.

The whole thing is just so against the spirit of the game. How do people genuinely think this is good for the game?

 

The fact they keep changing it every year just proves how clueless they are. Is the end goal for football to be about refereeing decisions? It will always play a part but it's playing far too big a part now. The introduction of VAR has taken it to a sickening level.

I can't see how they don't play the clip full speed when reviewing for VAR.

Just about to say that, no way you look at this at normal speed and call it a handball.


Slowing it down should only happen to decide it it touched the hand. The rest should be normal speed.
