    Couldn't possibly ignore this..

    "Live audio of VAR decisions would be 'chaotic' - Ifab" (the International Football Association Board)

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/67265837

    "There are no plans to broadcast live video assistant referee communication because it would be too "chaotic" to listen to and potentially create "an unsafe environment for referees".

    Last month, Luis Diaz wrongly had a goal disallowed for offside as Liverpool lost 2-1 to Tottenham, and the VAR audio for that decision was subsequently released.

    The International Football Association Board (Ifab) believes fans should be informed of decisions, but not hear them being made live.

    "I categorically say no, they shouldn't," Ifab secretary and chief executive Lukas Brud told BBC Radio 5 Live Breakfast's Rick Edwards.

    "I was allowed to observe and see communication between match officials during a review and it is quite a chaotic situation, not in a negative sense but there's many people talking at the same time and I think it would be counterproductive for anyone to listen to all those voices talking to each other.

    "Then you have the VAR and the assistant VAR, the replay operators, the referee and maybe even the assistant referees and fourth official, so all of a sudden it becomes quite a chaotic experience.

    "We have given the green light to test the announcement of decisions to bring a little more transparency to decision making, but we are not prepared at this point to open up communication live to the audience."

    Bollocks. Rugby (for example) has more than one VAR official checking the screens. The VAR team discuss the situation and passes the decision to the on-field official(s).

    "There have also been calls for football to follow other sports such as rugby and cricket in how they communicate on field decisions to fans, but Brud feels direct comparisons are unrealistic.

    "They are different sports with different set ups," he added. "We cannot compare by simply saying it is the same. In football, processes are slightly different.

    "Football is different because everyone is putting a magnifying glass on every decision and every single word would then be analysed in the media and it would create a very unsafe environment for referees.

    "They need to feel safe when they are focused on decision-making."

    It's a complete cop-out - they don't want anyone to hear their corrupt decisions.
    I loved this as well -

    Sin-bins and cutting down referee abuse
    Brud also said Ifab is looking into measures that could be implemented to reduce the amount of abuse referees receive, particularly at grassroots level.

    Sin-bins - a player receiving a temporary dismissal from the pitch - is something that is being looked at.

    "We are currently evaluation what kind of measures there are," Brud said.

    "At grassroots level and in a number of leagues in England, referees are wearing body cameras now as a form of deterrent to misbehaviours - and results so far have been very positive.

    "We are looking into different ways, but we also want to help referees officiate matches in a fair way and also make sure players and coaching staff also behave appropriately.

    "Football is not an emotional wastebasket, it's sport, it's supposed to be fun. We need to cut out some deeply-rooted behaviour."

    supposed to be fun. it's a multi-million dollar/sterling industry. open to corruption.
    championships and cup finals have already been adversely affected by so-called "mistakes" made by the officials.

    Saudi Arabia is set to host the men's 2034 World Cup after Australia decided against bidding to stage the tournament. Saudi Arabia is the only other country to bid.

    What's the money on there being a lucrative energy deal or something for Australia in due course?

    I see Ederson has withdrawn from the Brazil squad for the upcoming internationals. That's Big Ali starting then.

    I was watching the game, Ederson had an ankle injury was about to go off but decided to stay on. so cant be much wrong with him. with a serious ankle injury you dont play on and cause more trouble.
