    The useless wanks in charge of any given game will still get it wrong.

    Will never happen as it would basically mean only games involving Rangers and Celtic get fair decisions. Do BT show games between other teams?!

    the trouble for us would come with whoever is reviewing the incidents, we have seen repeatedly that we are judged to different standards as anyone else

    They wouldn't even show a single replay when Morelos was 3 yards onside at the weekend, preferring to jizz all over their screen at Christoph.... I'll pass.

    I don’t disagree, percent a couple of seasons ago Feyenoord were the only side to have goal line technology in the league. So similar has been done elsewhere!

    Just 2 SPL games not involving us though in 8 weeks compared to 8 games involving us and Celtic over the same period. Just don't see other clubs agreeing to it outside of us and Celtic.

    It not down to the clubs to agree the decision is by made the SPFL and SFA

    If they are going to trial it then one of the game listed is perfect for it

    We should go for it. We've lost out on a few important decisions this season. The more attacking teams always will.

    yes they do but its a trial so have to start somewhere.

    I'm all for it and if it irons out the barrage of errors we have been subjected to of late, then bring it on.

    BT should just go ahead and do it anyway and highlight every time the incompetent officials get stuff wrong in a VAR style. Might not affect the game but at least it will highlight the need for it.

    What's the point, the VAR team would just be made up of tarriers.

    Anything that contributes towards eradicating the horrific incompetence we are subjected to on an almost weekly basis, is to be welcomed IMHO. As long as the review panel are open, transparent, non-compromised and compiled of a range of professionals, who are capable of making such important calls.

    So one game you get a penalty that you should have, and in another you don't?

    Sounds a bit unfair surely? Potentially winning a league based on how many VAR games you have had.

    Great in theory the idea.

    Devils advocate here but how could they introduce VAR in some premier league games and not others? Surely there needs to be consistency or it would just add to the league being even more Mickey Mouse than it currently is!

    It entirely depends on who the VAR officials are.

    If they have their names and identities withheld from the public, I'm out

    It's a trial.

    If the trial is successful, then it will be rolled out to all.

    And during the trial period, they will select multiple games involving multiple teams.

    We have refs that are better than other ones. One referee would have given a penalty when another wouldn't because he is inferior.

    They should be rolling out any available improvement to the game, VAR is one of them. Even if it is just for some games.

    Correct it is only a trial at moment

    In England it is used in the FA Cup and League Cup but only if the game is at Premier League ground or Wembley

    Helps our cause. Everyone can see it but the ones running our game. They don't want to see it as it favours their team.

    Well, f*ck me! Isn’t that a surprise. The one time we actually benefit from a marginal decision and all of a sudden VAR isn’t so unaffordable after all. :rolleyes:

    SPL won't allow for BT matches to potentially decide the outcome of certain games.

    Our refs are turgid though, the ref seemed determined to stop the play at every opportunity last night, bringing back play when there was a clear advantage to be played.

    As much as VAR is probably the only way to highlight the constant mistakes made by our officials, it will be the same idiots in a room making the final judgement on what to decide.

    They have been doing it for the past year.

    We were told Rogic never fouled Jack in the build up to the fenians goal against us.....in fact Finbar O'Saunders said it was a foul on Rogic!!!

    Fact remains, our game cannot afford the costs/upkeep of VAR

    We can't afford goal line tech for same reason

    We can't even afford to pay our referees full time so they could, like, maybe get better?

    A channel driven by a clear anti-Rangers bias providing VAR on predominantly our games?

    No thanks.

    Precisely. They have nowhere to hide with VAR.
