Why fix the problem when you can just refuse to justify s*** decisions?

Won’t be long until they start refusing to show replays of incidents.

refs should have 30 seconds to check the offside lines - if they cant make their minds up in that time - should be left as being called onside.
john gibson in the chronicle this afternoon;
"John Carver has talked of playing two up top in an effort to score goals, tactically be more direct to grind out points, and just about every other possibility known to man or beast. They are the ramblings of a drowning desperado."

VAR should get one look at a replay and if they can't make a decision attacker gets the advantage.

It's video assisted refereeing not video and felt tip assisted.

30 seconds is way too long. Ten seconds should be plenty enough to see if it's a clear and obvious error.
See that VAR had a good game yesterday in Juventus.

One look in normal time and the TV companies should do the same with their replays. One of the reasons VAR & goal-line technology came in was because of the technology of the TV companies showing up incorrect decisions with their umpteen angles, super slo-mo replays and fancy graphics. Made me laugh Lineker hating VAR when he was in a studio for BBC & BT pulling apart any decision. SSN even have a segment every week where an ex-ref scrutinises everything. Maybe if they backed down proving everything wrong, referees would have a bit more freedom to make the right call...but then you get the whole 'big club bias' argument and you're back to square one.

It was introduced to eliminate clear and obvious errors. If you can't tell straight away then it's hardly a clear and obvious error. It's not complicated.

Yeah but my point is, how many times in the studio would they show everything to show it was wrong, etc? If that didn’t happen then maybe the refs could crack on and make a decision. If we go to clear & obvious, you’ll still get these using all their technology and angles to show something was still wrong. Get rid of that side of analysis and maybe it could work like that.

The game should be decided on the pitch not in the studio. I never watch the analysis so they can do whatever they want, for me.
