As someone pointed out football used to be simple game with players managers and officials making mistakes but it was accepted as far as refereeing mistakes are concerned but it seems to me personally with VAR in the PL there are being more mistakes and controversy than ever,  part of the problem is that referees don’t use pitchside monitors

As a result I think some of the older referees may get fed up and call it a day as a football fan I don’t have the same enthusiasm anymore as it’s ruined the game for me personally

I am happy to be absent from the intimacy and burden of the PL and VAR with my Fourth Division and below football.  Officials make mistakes by giving decisions as they see them with their Mark 1 eyeballs.  Most weeks its a case of: We got beat/we won, we were disadvantaged/benefitted from a bad/mistaken decision, we 'enjoy' the celebration/dejection immediately after each goal, we discuss the decision(s) on the bus home, agree that s4it happens and 'will even itself out at the end of the season' and look forward to the next game. 

Much better than the protracted fiasco we see in the PL that continues long into the next week fuelled by the media scrutiny and over reactions to the technology assisted humans.
“They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”  Laurence Binyon
