    Spitting at an opponent

    And as I said, I thought that was a fairly clear conclusion from the initial post? And I also didn't understand why you still seemed to be hectoring One for that - he has no control over what the referee does with the information he was given!

    Spitting at an opponent

    I think it's fairly clear what's happened here? Surely the referee has either misunderstood what he's being told, or decided (correctly or not) that between what he saw and what he was told, there's enough to justify red. It's not really up to the AR to interrogate the ref and/or to justify that...

    Spitting at an opponent

    Although I haven't had to do this under the new system, presumably the ref has submitted the red card and named @one as an AR who is also reporting? He's then obliged to write something - and can either lie and say he saw him spit, or tell the truth, report what he told the ref and perhaps get...

    Liverpool V Bayern

    Yup, absolutely the worst VAR side effect, looks very odd. And of course the commentators have no idea why the delay, just think the AR was slow to come to a decision.

    Liverpool V Bayern

    How long are the opposing GK's arms?

    Liverpool V Bayern

    Ref had the whistle to his mouth and was clearly considering calling it back, no idea why he decided not to

    Red Yellow or No card

    Why not? There are safe and unsafe ways to tackle at ground level or sliding, why can we not also accept that there are more and less safe ways to tackle at hip height as well?

    Same club in a matter of a week or so?

    I had a situation last year where I was assigned to a team for two matches a month apart. Not a huge deal, but when the first match was delayed 2 or 3 times, the matches ended up being literally two days apart. I contacted the league, they thanked me for doing so, took me off the second match...

    VAR

    Would be very interested to know what your real opinion would be if I hadn't already posted? "UEFA is always right" brown nosing isn't particularly in character for you

    Open Age Playground near by

    We've had a debate on here about who has to be offended for the "OFF" in OFFINABUS to be met. If you as the referee are offended, it's easy - red. If you're not offended, but a 5 year old kid in a playground next to the pitch (or their parent shocked at what the kid might have heard) is...

    VAR

    If "that's how UEFA say it should be done" is your only argument, you're basically making my point. I don't know the UEFA system, I don't know anything about trials that came to this conclusion, I only know what I see in the clip in the OP. And in that clip, in my opinion, as a glorified...

    VAR

    The card is a communication tool, nothing more. As a referee, I'm empowered to issue cautions and dismiss players without a yellow or red piece of plastic. And in this situation, in practical terms, it doesn't matter in the slightest that the yellow has been rescinded. Tell the player the...

    VAR

    Agree completely. But I don't see how waving both cards around and making un-defined hand gestures clears anything up really. It's obvious from the clip that the player thinks he's got away with it, I couldn't tell until a second viewing why the yellow card was out.....it could definitely be...

    VAR

    None of which makes it clear or obvious to either the player or fans. Just because "it's the protocol", doesn't magically make it clear, sensible or the best thing to do. It's entirely valid to raise the fact that the protocol didn't work well in this situation and could probably be improved on.

    VAR

    How on earth is is clear? He shows the yellow card and the player thinks he's confirming that sanction and starts to walk off - he then has to be called back in order to have the red shown. It's incredibly messy!

    VAR

    That's a really confusing set of signals. I assume he had initially given yellow, so got the yellow card out in order to show that he was rescinding that card and issuing a straight red?

    Red Yellow or No card

    The player in yellow is leading with the top of his foot, while the player in black leads with his studs and almost has his leg fully straightened. Coupled with the fact he got there late as well, I'm certainly comfortable with the idea that he's committed more of an offence than the player in...

    "You can over rule the linesman you know ref"

    I think this is really good advice, my only question is why you would only consider a C2 if you're 100% sure? The AR has made a recommendation and you've made the decision to either accept or overrule that recommendation. If a player continues to argue with that decision, they're dissenting...
