    A place to measure the outcome of VAR events this season.
    Not whether the match officials were correct etc, merely to document the event,
    and see whether the age-old bias grievances are being thinned down.

    The method I will use is that each data item is :

    Match week / Team A vs Team B / rank A / rank B / event / decision / against (A or B)

    For the first half of the season, the ranking value I will use is the final PL table
    position for the season before. After that I will use the current PL table position.

    I will group the events by month.

    So keep your eyes out for VAR events that are not deemed to be contentious or
    any games not deemed to be "high profile" .

    Have a look at this debacle from the Australian A League today and tell me the officials haven't lost the plot.

    VAR was absolutely savaged by the Jets’ coach. Then it delivered an even worse controversy

    Scott McDonald (R) had a potential goal ruled out in a highly controversial VAR decision.Source: Getty Images
    VAR stole the headlines on a chilly night as Western United hosted Western Sydney Wanderers, with another goal line decision leaving fans utterly dumbfounded.
    Meanwhile Newcastle coach Ernie Merrick delivered an almighty spray at the VAR after a decision denied his side a penalty in a 1-1 draw with Perth eaerleir on Sautrday.

    In the later match, the game was poised at 1-1 in the second term when Western United’s veteran Australian striker Scott McDonald sent a bullet header towards goal from close range, only to hit the midriff of Wanderers keeper Daniel Lopar.

    But the process of catching the ball arguably took it over the line, with McDonald vocally leading Western United’s appeals for a goal.

    VAR denies yet another!


    The referee was not convinced, and VAR immediately undertook a review.

    But the review occurred in rather ridiculous fashion, with VAR ‘drawing a line’ across the goal line and then vertically up to the ball in an attempt to prove the ball had not crossed the line.

    That left many on social media wondering why the line was ruled through the middle of the goal line rather than the rear edge – since the ball had to completely cross the whole line and not just the middle to be a goal.

    After nearly five minutes of deliberation, the referees confirmed the decision of no goal.

    It is the second time in three weeks that VAR has had to rule on a controversial goal line call, with a Sydney derby goal also being denied by the referee (and leading to Robbie Slater’s entertaining post-match recreation).


    Why isn’t the line on the edge?

    Wrong... tell the var to put it in the right place and give the goal! Only refs would think that’s not a goal! https://twitter.com/condonluke/status/1193116381392207872 …

    Replying to @BrentonSpeed
    Blurry vision and blue line is not in the right position. Ref was right not to change the decision.

    Do I need stronger glasses? Was that McDonald header not over the line?

    Thoughts? I’ve used Instagram, which admittedly is better tech than VAR, but still, you get the picture.

    Saturday’s earlier match also saw its fair share of VAR controversy, after Newcastle were denied an early penalty for a push on Nick Fitzgerald in the box.

    The referee on-field, Jonathan Barreiro, decided it was no penalty. VAR eventually agreed.

    Jets blow up at VAR call

    0:40
    Newcastle manager Ernie Merrick sent a stunning spray the referee’s direction in his post-match press-conference.

    “Before we start, let’s get the penalty out of the way. Have you ever seen a more blatant penalty? A push in the back, extended arm in the penalty box. How is that not a penalty?” Merrick said.

    Merrick was seen talking to the referee at half-time, but said he hadn’t received any clarification.

    “When he wasn’t speaking Spanish, yes I spoke to him,” Merrick said.

    “He speaks a lot of Spanish during the games and talks to the opposition a lot in Spanish. We’re in Australia, I would have thought he would be speaking English most of the time so we can all hear what he’s saying to his mates.”

    "VAR? Sounds foreign, don't like it."
