Stop VAR petition

Petition on line from someone known to many of us roofers.

We, the undersigned football fans, believe that the introduction of VAR (Video Assistant Referees) has failed in its primary purpose to correct “clear and obvious” mistakes and call on the Premier League to stop its use immediately. In particular the VAR approach adopted has been overly strict in the interpretation of offside (with no evidence that the technology can scientifically determine either the timing of the ball strike or a precise line parallel to the goal line) and has upheld the referee’s decision in every single penalty review to date, regardless of merit. Unlike other sports the review system is disruptive to the flow of the game, lacks transparent communication with fans and involves no obvious protocols by which to assess a decision. What is clear and obvious is that VAR is not fit for purpose.

Nobel effort but sad to say that the rulers of the game don't give a fcuk what we say.

Many thanks Wints.
Whilst it may well be true that the fans rank quite low in the pecking order for the PL, I'm not sure that means it's better to say nothing.
The concept of VAR was considerably more promising than the reality.

That's debatable, Arthur Negus has signed it four times

It's how they apply it that's the problem.

Whilst I wouldn't go to the trouble of signing a petition (since when have the football authorities ever actually listened to the opinions of football fans or genuinely taken our/their views into consideration?), that critique of VAR and its current application is absolutely spot on...
