VAR previews…

Ahtarma? This is exactly what is happening in modern football with the famous VAR. Where the devil puts his foot on football dressed in the costume of the archangel of the cleansing in order to finally smile sardons with the elbow he has created.

Football can be tragic, and sometimes it can be comical. The safest way to become comedic is VAR. Pep Guardiola's despair after his furious celebration and the impression that "Dude, now I feel stupid" in combination with the embarrassing smiles of Tottenham followers who had fallen from Big Ben on the benches of Stihad, dusted off and went on to collect the profits from the joker card they found on their landing, I would they feel primordial and Bunuel renews his approach to surrealism.

An integral part of the game

One may not have the best view of justice. The point is that good or bad in its application, in its general context (and in its various stages), imposes penalties for almost all the offenses the legislator could think of. This has been the case in football so far. With the significant difference that in delivering justice to football, we have taken into account and accepted that human error is involved as an integral part of the game. As it was (and is) for the player, so was the referee for the match.

We may, especially in Greece, live in the rage, the result of injustice (on the pitch because we are making a conscious rubbing elsewhere), but at 10 wrong decisions in world football, at 9 we talk about human error and we deal with the deceit in one

By the time a judge came to help the judge theoretically and to get higher than him, however, choosing the offenses where justice no longer recognizes human error. By what criterion? There was no mathematical formula for deciding which phases to judge in the VAR Appeal. Obviously those that are more directly related to the goal and did more to keep the race going smoothly. Perhaps sensible if you decide to put such a process into a team sport. The question is, why do you decide?

Delivering justice in the second instance?

Let's say that, since its initial application in the World, the decisions of the VAR referees have begun to be challenged, despite the use of technology. Let us not comment that we will be talking about a football of the rich for VAR installations so and (theoretically) a greater degree of justice and the poor who will not be able to raise the investment or do so but with discounts on the end result .

But if I have Messi (or someone 'Messi') in my team that has a 40-50% chance of scoring a direct foul outside the area why is there no corresponding VAR equity? Is it possible for a line to determine the second degree of justice?

OK, we would stop playing every now and then. Accepted, but even now there is no benefit in playing. On the contrary! When you designate a panel of technological equipment to judge the instant decision that the human eye made, you admit that this same eye is very likely to make mistakes in other phases. You just don't judge them, these, as decisive. The difference is that the game, and therefore its outcome, is a sum of phases, choices and decisions. So you can't finally know which phase is crucial, as we are talking about a chain of events in which you arbitrarily choose to examine only a few links.

The burden of responsibility

So, in essence, it's like distorting the image and growing mistrust about one's ability to bring justice to football. What is the VAR after all… sample checking, with which the competent authority is trying to convince them to make the sport fairer?

It can be heretical, but all participants in the race must bear the right to make the mistake, taking the burden of responsibility. Seeing more and more castrated or phobic referees seeking the help of the VAR even in the clear phases that are bound to have the first and last word is a bad sign.

After all, when you find the way to technically make arbitration electronically, go to the next step. But they have not yet done so in cars where human error is far more decisive than in the ball.
