Re: The VAR thread

Dermot Gallagher said on Sky earlier that the lines for offsides are calibrated based on the feet of the players and don't take into account other parts of the body.

If so, this is surely a ludicrous and completely inaccurate way of implementing the system. FIFA used a 3D system during the World Cup - why is it not in place here?

Gallagher was quite dismissive about criticisms saying that people had wanted VAR so we couldn't criticise it now it was here but it does feel to me like the necessary investment hasn't been made to ensure the system is working as it should do.
