It would help if they knew how to use it properly. Half arsed at best during the tournament.

There are several problems with it - not least of which is that it seems to have absolved referees of all responsibility for not being complete knobs.

Why don't they have an enormous control centre in each stadium with 200 screens and an official watching the game on each screen from a slightly different angle, and then have voting buttons ie pen/no pen, foul/no foul, etc and then the effect of human error is minimised.



Clear majority = decision given.



Ref on the pitch gets the decision instantly.



When the games aren't on the control rooms can be rented out to private space companies for their Christmas parties and Apollo 13 style rescue missions etc.

Why not get Simon Cowell, Will I Am and Matthew Kelly to combine and have their back to the game, turn around to watch a screen when a decision is to be made, and if they all give it three big red crosses then Matthew Kelly has to come on to the pitch through a cloud of smoke to take a penalty dressed as a random 80s music icon.

I was thinking it was something FIFA could do to attract that sort of audience, and the women.



But then hosting world cups in places like Qatar shows they don't really care to attract either of those audiences.

Personally I think the system and procedure is decent, reviews have mostly been quick. The main issue is wrong calls.

But if they’d have had it in 1986...

Alternatively if they had in 66 and if it was over or not... More goal line tech than VAR true.

1) The yanks will figure a way to drop in 'VAR inquiry' length TV ads.



2) The VAR results will be forced to wait till the ad finishes.



3) Then they'll demand more and longer VAR's.



4) After outrage from fans they'll compromise by going to 4 quarters.
