  1. Still hate VAR. Hasn’t done a thing to reduce controversy or make calls more clear.

  2. OneManWolfpack says:

    If the World Cup wasn’t in France… is that call made?

  3. It’s been four days since this was posted:
    “Tanner, who is headed on a trip to Europe at the moment, added that the Union will ‘very probably’ make an addition or two to the squad this summer.
    “We have something promising going on, to be honest, but it’s still not finalized,” Tanner said. “We will say more once it’s done. It’s not that surprising that we need to have a few more players, we have a really small roster this season. The summer window is always a tight window, the budgets are limited. You cannot really do a lot.”
    ‘We can never know about the days to come
    But we think about them anyway…’

  4. VAR is a no brainier in regards to offsides. I think FIFA needs to significantly alter or clarify the handball rule. I also don’t think fouls inside the box need to automatically be PKs, specifically accidental handballs.

  5. Yeah. Pretty sure we can still hate the snake. Especially since a snake with arms & legs is … a lizard.
