Why implement it if you're free to use it whenever you want? They used it for a very soft penalty for France, but didn't use it for the clearest two hand push in Brazil v Switzerland? They also didn't use it for a clear penalty for Peru in the beginning of the game and for Germany in the allegedly handball..

Because ultimately, the main referee has the last say And in those examples it seemed like the main referee was clear on his decision VAR is only used if main referee himself is unsure

Nope if VAR wants referee to see it he has to see it. But yes in the end the referee decides if it was ok or not.

They dont use it if they want. It is always used in the background but the main ref will only need it if its 100% needed
2018-06-17 23:10
thanks... why do people dont get this? Its always in use and the mainref has an earpiece to communicate with the VAR-team.
2018-06-17 23:11
Let me rephrase it... They call whatever they want. Football rules seem way too shady right now. I mean how don't you call a TWO HAND push into a guy that is about to jump? Everyone that has veer played football knows that this is a foul because it fucks your timing in the header.

if that is your complain, then say it that way and dont blame VAR "not being used" ;D
2018-06-17 23:16
sorry, my bad. I acually knew that it is always being "used"

but only if he thinks he needs it
2018-06-17 23:15
I dont know exactly how they do it, I would suggest that they can just give him info without him asking for it? Any sources or links reagrding that topic? Like I said, I dont know how exactly they handle that.
2018-06-17 23:17
Well, they said the VAR-team will be informing the ref about any mistakes, to me that means, its not only relevant when the mainref decideds to ask them. So if he makes any wrong decisions, like if the VAR disagrees, they will let him know. Thanks for the link!

#4 but the last decision is from the main ref i think
2018-06-17 23:22
Yeah, VAR cant overturn the refs decision on the field.

Fifa doesn't want football to be clean.. drama moves lots of money. If they can make var look shit in a world cup, they can get rid of it and keep controlling things as usual

I still watch it cuz I love the thrill. But I stopped giving a fuck about anything outside the fields..

Well, the tool is there, the implementation still as a lot to improve, and most of the referees are not even used to use it in domestic leagues. I think over the years and this tournament´s length it will get better.
