Our latest report that the Football Association has until Tuesday evening to overrule the VAR decision involving Albian Ajeti surely demonstrates the game we all love is hurtling into a theatre of the absurd!
VAR looked at whether he was guilt of violent conduct when his head appeared to brush into Mason Holgate’s face towards the end of yesterday’s game against Everton.
However, after VAR ruled out an expulsion for the striker saying no violent conduct was involved one assumed was the end of the matter.
But absolutely not in the rule-crazy new world affecting the game with the Hammer insiders telling us that even that could be kicked out by the FA if they choose.
Madness, and here’s how ClaretandHugh Facebook Group member Mike Ayers responded – correctly in our view: “This is now becoming absolutely farcical!
“A ref takes a decision based upon information passed from VAR that can then be overturned by a third set of officials a few days later.
Can this then be appealed methinks? And can the FA board also overturn a previous referee / VAR decision upon a scored goal that may have had a problem somewhere in the lead up! Where will it all end?”
And a CandH website follower simply calling himself Mojen added: “So they can overturn that if they feel like it but not a Declan Rice handball which was headed on to his hand by a Sheffield United player.
Just what is the point of football anymore? It appears what VAR says is completely bendable. Whole thing is pointless then.”
