VAR is more helpful than not


That Wolves goal shouldn't have been taken away. But that Liverpool goal was clearly not a handball, and that's what VAR is designed to do. I think the issue is the shoulder/armpit. The pixel being selected might not necessarily be the correct pixel. If it's that close on the armpit, let the play stand as called. But for as much crap as VAR takes, it correctly disallowed a Man City goal in the Champions League semifinals. So on the biggest stage, it correctly influenced who made the finals. VAR can be tweaked, but overall I still think it's a good thing. It also shows how refs have an almost impossible (and thankless) job.
