Comparing it to cricket and tennis isnt the best because they're a lot less fluid of a sport than football.

Rugby?

Fair one.  I think if you don't/haven't played it, then it's a tough watch.  I think in terms of gameplay it's fairly similar to football (ignoring tackling) except that in football the ball can be passed forwards to players ahead of the ball causing the gameplay to move up and down the pitch more quickly.

In refereeing terms, the laws of rugby are often black or white.  In football they are often shades of grey, which doesn't help referees, hence why I propose modifying the rules to help refs out more (and making their decisions more transparent).

Strange explanation of the purpose of the rule. People used to kick the ball upfield so we introduced a law that encouraged it.

Don't really understand it, couldn't they have just have made it a freekick to the attacking side if a defender touches it in the box?

Guess they want to cater for teams who pass it out, which is fine I guess.

Was explained poorly in that article. My interpretation was that the ball is now fair game as soon as the goal kick is taken, it's just that players need to start from outside of the box.

Attacking players need to start inside the box, defenders can stand right next to the keeper and take a short pass, giving them a few seconds before they can be closed down.

Won't make much difference but it might speed the game up a bit which is good

Baffling one in the MLS just now. Atalanta were on the attack in the box, LA Galaxy player makes a tackle and clears the ball. Atalanta make another attack which comes to nothing then attack again when one of their players is obstructed and it’s an obvious penalty. The referee immediately points to the spot but wants to check with VAR, he goes to check it and the replay is showing the first incident which happened a minute earlier. The commentators think the wrong images are put up, however the replay is a feed from the referee’s VAR system and he’s slowing it down etc. It clearly shows that there was no foul, the referee points to the spot for the penalty and books the defender.

Atlanta should have had a penalty, but not for that incident.

Still baffled as to why he ran across the box when he found himself in danger. As you're always told, if in doubt...

Wow. Offside VAR decision made on completely arbitrary lines drawn on players' arms.

That is dogshit, and will be horrific when it's used against us to make sure the big clubs get the win.

You pay god knows what to actually turn up to an experience that now only makes any sense to anyone on television.
So true - one thing I love about football over other sports is the speed of the game.  VAR just kills it - stop/start without a clue what's going on.  And for what? We'll still get wrong decisions - that offside today - ridiculous.

But the point isn't what works on or off TV. The point is that decisions are corrected.

If it's a problem in ground, which I'm sure it is, they need to solve that with some commentary or whatever.

The box has been opened, there's no going back. You can't now wish for less accuracy it's mental.
