Video killing fan fun as spectators turn on VAR

Headquarters of the Premier League production Stockley Park

The International Football Association Board (IFAB) is expected to approve Video Assistant Referees (VAR) when it meets in Zurich, in time for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

This is the kind of scenario football's lawmakers will have to grapple with when they meet on Saturday to decide whether or not to authorise VARs for the World Cup.

The panel, known as IFAB, voted unanimously to begin updating the game's written rules to include video assistant referees (VAR) and give competition organizers the choice to adopt it.

Players risk a booking if they attempt to influence any official to use VAR and managers or other non-playing club staff risk being sent to the stand if they do the same, or encroach on the area where the referee is reviewing footage.

GM John Schneider doesn't deny report Seahawks are shopping Michael Bennett
ESPN's Brady Henderson reports Seattle is working to move Bennett, hoping to get some of his $7.4 million cap hit off the books. All have been recently injured and are nearing 30. "We are just constantly talking to people all the time", Schneider said.

"Regarding the flow of the game, the intervention takes around one minute".

IFAB, the body that determines the laws of the sport, approved VAR to be used permanently in the sport around the world. UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said it will not be implemented in next season's Champions League amidst the ongoing confusion.

The decision was made at FIFA's headquarters in Zurich at the Ifab's 132nd annual general meeting on Saturday.

A referee with access to a video monitor, and in constant communication with the main match official, checks all such decisions. "We came to the conclusion that VAR is good for football and referees and it brings more fairness to the game. There will still be controversy but I think the benefits outweigh the negatives". "And it was always like this, and we understood football in this way".

"The system didn't help, the spectacle, it was a little bit embarrassing".

VAR is now used for reviewing, goals, red cards, penalties and cases of mistaken identify has been tested well across world football, mainly in Australia and Brazil. Rather, it's more a matter of waiting until video refs are established and refined enough that they won't create problems on the pitch.

Son wasn't even given the opportunity to re-take the kick, and the referee also failed to note the fact that Erik Lamela was well inside the box when his team-mate slotted home. Footage from matches at all games at top-flight grounds is already piped into the Stockley Park facility, including more than dozen camera angles.

The football associations of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland each had one vote while Fifa, representing all other national federations, had four.
