The outcry over VAR in the wake of a series of decisions during last night's Tottenham v Rochdale game has once again highlighted some glaring issues with the introduction of the system.
Firstly, using VAR should never have been rushed into and secondly the failure to consult the two most important stakeholders - the fans and the players - about possibly one of the biggest changes in football history.
Neither groups have ever been asked what they think and what they want both on the pitch and in the stadium and that has a lot to do with the reaction we've seen since after last night's game.
The players don't know what's going on and neither do the fans - even broadcasters have barely been consulted and we also are in the dark about what's happening when the referees decide to consult VAR. This leads to so much confusion and is definitely not good for the game.
Clearly there is a lot of confusion and inconsistency at the moment. We always knew there would be teething problems and it can never be 100% accurate, but they should have at least consulted everyone involved with the game before rushing in to using it.
I also think it has been a big mistake to trial it in such an important competition as the FA Cup, possibly overshadowing what is one of the world's greatest competitions.
Do we want a game that is dominated by tiny margins and moments that are not even visible to the human eye, where someone could be offside by a kneecap - that no one would usually question or debate but become the reason why a team wins or loses - is that in keeping with the spirit of the game?
There are so many grey areas with VAR, but I am not against trialling it and actually believe that it is useful in certain situations. It can be good for off the ball decisions that the referee hasn't seen or where a referee has made a clear and obvious mistake, however when it comes to the hairline decisions it can end up just slowing the game right down.
This is not good for the players and certainly not for the fans, who can't even celebrate until a decision has been analysed and footage looked at over and over again.
Once you slow a decision down and look at multiple replays, analysing frame by frame you can convince yourself you are right about anything and that happens all the time. You could even get more incorrect decisions by using VAR than just trusting the ref to make the correct decision in real time.
