VAR/Offside


Daniel Watson

Recommended Posts

In every other game at the moment we see goals chalked off incorrectly because part of the offenders body was deemed offside, this is an absurdity.  There is no way a player can cope with such minuscule measurements that are only capable of being detected by a computer. Let’s have the rule made simple that the attackers body must be completely ahead of the defender when the pass is made. The current nonsense just stops goals being scored and spoils the game.

It was meant to be used to rectify clear and obvious mistakes but it's just getting used for any reason to chalk off goals 

I'd like to see them use it when quite clearly a player has conned the ref into giving him a free kick 

Now the refs are being asked to have a second look at offside decisions that should be made by the VAR team. The whole thing stinks, let’s get rid.

They’re not. 

With our “goal” yesterday and Ross County’s on Tuesday, VAR determined the player was in an offside position. The referee was then called to the monitor in both cases to asses whether the player was interfering with play (a subjective decision).

VAR is one of the worst additions to football. It’s altered the game and taken away the spontaneity from goal scoring. Refs and linesmen now looking over their shoulders in case their seen to have screwed up. It’s an expensive imposition that we don’t need as we had wrong calls before and wrong calls since but with a built in delay. There’s also clearly a difference in the equipment used by virtue of the number of camera angles that’s used ie English leagues v Scottish leagues. We can’t or won’t afford to add the extra cameras in Scotland nor can we afford to use the full set on all professional or semi professional games in Scotland. The fans and players have no clear knowledge when it will be or is being used. There is no audio available so nobody knows about exchanges between officials. 
Many people cite the way cameras and officials view professional rugby especially the ability to hear the audio from officials as being much better than football. It’s certainly run far better in that sport, however there’s also a clear difference in the level of respect in rugby v football towards the decisions of the match officials. 
Recently we’ve even seen VAR being used to run further back from a goal to see if any incident happened earlier in the play leading up to that goal. Summing it up - my view is we should Scrap this expensive nonsense but that would only happen if one of the ugly sisters thought they weren’t getting enough of their expected decisions. Rant over.

I would be interested in a review of Ross County head knocks in the second half last Tuesday.

I guess a around 10 head knocks( a world record)-some occurred after a straight forward tackle on the ground-still managed to rollover hiding their heads.

Blatant time wasting

Agreed totally and have always held to this position. But 41/42 senior clubs in Scotland voted for it. We missed our chance to keep the game as it was. Clubs deserve every bit of the anarchy that comes from VAR.

Totally, they say it's for clear and obvious errors so they should apply it on that basis and not when someone is offside by a PIXEL.

If they insist on keeping VAR then perhaps it should be extended to address the conning and diving that is ruining the game. No need to stop play or look at replays, if a VAR official sees an infringement he simply instructs the ref over the mic to book him, end of. It may be the only way to stop players going down holding their faces etc..
