Clubs should not publicly complain about VAR

This season, even quite before, we are seeing clubs argue about the utilization of Video Assistant Refereeing (VAR) in football for all sorts of reasons. the rise in complaints might be thanks to English Premier League using it for the first time this year but that doesn't change the very fact that clubs are walking a really thin line when voicing their complaints about the technology publicly.
Social media may be a beautiful way for football clubs to connect with their fans and a convenient thanks to making sure that everyone is up so far with the newest developments. a bit like with anything, when something is made public it can either be used negatively or positively.

If recent trends are anything to travel by, then we’re sure to see many posts from the official club handles trying to prove that VAR isn't doing the work correctly.

VAR was brought into football to eliminate the discussion of whether or not a team deserved a penalty or a suspension. However, it seems as if that isn’t the case as of now. Teams are still finding problems with the consistency of the technology since albeit VAR is employed, the choices are ultimately made by human referees.

The technology is way from perfect and has been wrong once in a while, but why do the clubs feel the necessity to travel on social media to form their points?

To be clear, this is often not me saying that albeit VAR is proven wrong, the clubs should stay silent and advance. they need the proper to complain and make their voices heard but going out on social media brings down the image of a club.

Even if it isn’t the intention, it shows pettiness and adds more controversy to the matter. most significantly though, it makes no difference in the least. The difference is going to be made if the club formally sends a letter to the governing body of the competition with their concerns and proof so that they can work together on improving the technology or maybe finding answers to why exactly something didn’t go their way.

If they need the general public to understand anything, they will simply send out a message saying that they need formally communicated with the people responsible to seek out an answer. One thing is for sure: the game won’t be replayed and thus, there's no got to linger over it anymore. However, making your voices heard will hopefully fix the problem within the future.

Real Madrid isn't the sole team to try to do this but that isn’t an excuse. Real Madrid prides itself at being the most important name within the footballing world but that comes with a price. they have to be a part of the teams that lead the others.

In Spain, other clubs like Celta Vigo have done it recently while we see it consistently within the Premier League with Manchester City and other clubs. They’re not wrong for eager to voice their concerns, but they're wrong with how they're doing so.

The only thing that public complaining does is opens doors for the fans to continue on their complaints as they see the very fact that the team is voicing it as an invitation for them to try to so also. the quantity of individuals voicing their opinions isn’t the answer, the answer is to voice your opinions to the folks that have the power to form a difference within the future.

It is also worth noting that VAR has helped Real before, last when Paris Saint-Germain was awarded a penalty and Thibaut Courtois was suspended before VAR ruled out all of it, which helped Los Merengues stay within the game.

There should be a particular protocol that's followed for complaints and therefore the clubs got to be ensured that any and each complaint sent by them is studied thoroughly. People make mistakes and as long as there's some sort of human aspect in football, there'll be mistakes.

The introduction of VAR was alleged to eliminate the prospect of error but that hasn’t happened and that we are going to be seeing more instances where teams are either favored or undue to VAR, but complaining of social media does tons more harm than good for all teams involved.

I was never on board with the introduction of VAR as I think that human error adds to the sport as an entire. Having said that, once it had been introduced and approved, I expected that we might not be seeing these mistakes anymore since that’s how it had been initially advertised.

Unfortunately, we've seen many problems with VAR and that we will undoubtedly see tons more because the season goes on. As clubs direct their complaints to the proper people, we'll see change. Having clubs post comments and pictures as proof everywhere Twitter will make zero difference to the longer term of Video Assistant Refereeing.
