The A-Leagues Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system has received glowing praise from Australia’s Video Assistant Chief of Football.


Australia’s actual chief of football, David Gallop, was as surprised as anybody. “We thought there had been some tough decisions on the pitch,” Gallop said. “However, our video assistant chief of football declared that there has been to problems with VAR systems”.


The relief in Gallop’s voice was evident after the VAR ruled discussion after almost every match in last weekends’ round of A-league matches. “It seemed like there was a new problem after every match. So to get this call of confidence from the video chief puts a lot of pressure off of me”.


Even with the praise from the video chief, VAR rules were changed yesterday, with the controversial system not being used unless  “unless absolutely necessary”.
