Getting VAR because other leagues have it has got to be the worst reason going.

Sorry but this is actually "Douglas Ross won't get to go on wee jollies!".

I know you mentioned not wanting to come across as arrogant, but your weird, sarky reaction to being incorrect about something would suggest that ship has sailed...

Quite easy really…….

I feel the Society/Club should be doing a ballot at the very least.  Emails soliciting for fans' views is probably more than most other clubs are doing but it should still only be the first part of a much more of a transparent process IMO.

I don't think my monthly fiver should get me a vote on the starting lineup every Saturday but it probably should stretch to a say in the biggest change to the rules in this country since they introduced the passback law.

First time posting, but I have a friend who is a top tier ref. He has been training on the VAR setup at hampden for months, both as a ref working with a VAR and as a VAR reviewing the video feed. Hawkeye are also advertising for technicians to operate the system in Scotland. And the SFA are very keen for it to go ahead as their officials won’t be represented at major tournaments which use VAR if they aren’t working with it domestically  

True 'dat - hilarious if a bunch of league 2 clubs vote against it.

The main problem seems likely to be a shortage of officials as at least an extra 2 refs are required for each game (an assistant VAR to continue watching the action while a VAR review is going on). I would suggest that we can’t really afford to dilute a very weak talent pool any further so I’m against it 

A "friend", eh?  Great to have you on the forum, Hugh...

SMISA have asked members to vote on it.

Having seen the way it's used elsewhere, I voted against it.

They offered me a vote, that's what a tenner a month gets you.

think that it will be a centralised service, with referees reviewing feeds of the game from a central location. Which I would assume will reduce the number of referees required.

You still need 1 VAR official per game.

Oh sorry VAR missed the clear penalty at Easter Road, they were busy drawing lines on offside decision at Dingwall.

I mean, 4 years is actually quite a long time but it's still a bit mental that there's only two of the players in this video still at the club.

 

Now that was an enjoyable season. One of the biggest regrets of my time watching us that both our cup finals were against that Brendan Rodgers celtic team.

It really was typical. Up against anyone else and I'd have fancied that team to lift at least 1 trophy.

Us only ever getting the Old Firm in finals is quite annoying but on the other hand I think it at least means the defeats are fairly forgettable.  Losing a final to St Johnstone or something would probably leave me rattled for years.

Just to momentarily take us back to VAR..sorry..decision made within aboot 90 seconds to chop a Rangers goal off. For that alone it should be installed ASAP.

I was debating that with a Rangers "supporting" mate, he's not happy and upset it was called back. I told him I was upset VAR was involved but it was a handball for me but the ref missed it so f**k VAR.

Say what you want about the Motherwell team this season. But twice they have come from behind to draw at Ibrox. In the meantime Rangers are comfortably beating the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Red Star Belgrade and most probably Braga.

Sure they most definitely took us lightly. In fact I am sure they did. But credit where credit is due 👏👏.
