The FA should reconsider the use of VAR

Video Assistant Referee (VAR) has been in use since the beginning of the 2019/2020 English Premier League season. Now everyone is up in arms because of decisions that have sucked the excitement out of the beautiful game. There should be more reliance on the referee as opposed to those sitting behind the giant screens.

How more exiting can it get than a VAR overturning a call by a human? Hot dogs and ale flying through the stands while everyone is roaring their disapproval? In the states, baseball umpires are considered blind by most, and the NFL ref's aren't much better. Instant replay is a necessity.

Maybe the year 2020 will give them all............2020 vision?

It is easy to wish away claims of the VAR disrupting the flow of the game until it is the team you support on the receiving end. We all complained when referees made wrong calls, and now this piece of technology is not making things better. Hopefully, the FA can fix it in 2020!
