Learn from the Pros


All VAR is doing is rewarding skillful defending and penalizing clumsy, thuggish play by defenders who in the past have got away with cynical fouls making it difficult for referees to detect foul play. Skillful play can only make the game better and more exciting for the fans.

For those wanting more violence pick another activity like wrestling.

Time will tell and I advise all coaches and players to get onto YouTube and look-up Paolo Maldini, the great Italian player and his world class defending skills. His priority was interception first as that meant possession to counter attack.

If VAR does that then the game will be forever thankful.
