Simply false. That is why we have seen flagged OS reversed: the AR delays the flag, the goal scores, the flag comes up. Then VAR reviews and concludes the delayed flag was wrong. When the AR has seen OS but is delaying, they are supposed to be telling the R that immediately through the com set so the R will know the flag will be coming.In REALITY thEY LEave iT to VAr if the baLL goES In ThE nET qUiCKlY ON a DElayED FlAg
ARs are evaluated on the calls they make. If they fail to flag an OS correctly, they get dinged. So if an AR is improperly just swallowing the flag, so to speak, and just letting the VAR do her job, the AR will be poorly rated.
