Blue cards?

Just get hand fucking ball right first...

Wolves game has 2 absolute cluster fucks (a piece fortunately, cancelling one another out) yesterday...

We need to stop making this simple beautiful game more complicated...

VAR can fuck off, late offside flags when it's absolutely fucking blatant can fuck off and Blue fucking cards can fuck clean off...

It sort of works in rugby league but of course it’s a different game and itself is in danger of being spoiled by petty rules

Both games should flow and the best ones are where you hardly notice the referees

VAR needs sorting out pronto and should be used only for penalties and red cards

The earlier FA Cup games were so much better without it!

When you're talking of elite athletes at that level, they can't afford to go off the pitch and sit there for 10 minutes before they come back on without doing some kind of warm up or program to keep their muscles in shape.

You could feasibly have a situation where two or three (or more) players are all off the pitch doing laps just to keep warm before coming back on.

When you also take in to account the number of referees who like to make the match all about them as well, it's a recipe for disaster and just very very stupid.

Broadly I agree with you

Stop tampering with the game and it should be simplified more rather than making it more complicated

And yes a lot of referees like to be ‘personalities’!

I’m a keen rugby league fan having lived near the lovely city of Hull for ten years and the players who get sinned binned there are constantly on exercise bikes or doing warm up exercises

The season starts next Thursday with the Hull derby
The only true Derby in Super League!

Fuck VAR. Fuck blue cards. Just tell the referees to grow a pair and book cunts for dissent, only allow the captain to talk to the ref, start giving penalties for wrestling in the box for every fucking corner, give the benefit of the doubt to the attacking player for offside, if the ref didn't see it, the linesman didn't see it, then it's onside. There are 4 fucking officials, if one of them doesn't see an infringement then maybe they need better refs? Maybe, just maybe, if a ref is unsure and the other 3 cunts can't help him, then he could do like they do in the proper game - rugby union, and ask VAR for a look, but only in extreme cases, not when they are surrounded by whingeing cunts (who should all be booked).

Blue cards ? No fucking way...and I'll tell you why.
Over here we have that in Gaelic Football, but a black card is used. Its a much better comparison to Rugby because its a face paced game.

However....the entertainment for the next 10 or 15 will be fucked because the team it effects will simply tuck in and kill the game for the duration of the sin bin. You can't do that in Rugby to the same level, hence why it works.

The game is becoming more stop start than ever before. If you had 2 or 3 blue cards in a game you'd have at 30 mins of cynical tactical defensive football to keep out the threat...it'll be a disaster imo.
I'm not a VAR fan but this ? Fuck that...

How about pink cards for when a player is being a total pansy, rolling about on the floor pretending to be injured? By the way, I am not using the word 'pansy' in a homphobic way, I am woke as fuck me. I looked up the definition of woke the other day - 'aware of and actively attentive to important societal facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice'. Why would anyone except a total cunt have a problem with that?

The team mates of the pansy player should have a word!

I know if I did that in the 70/80s when I played amateur footy I would have got shit from them

It’s embarrassing

VAR has fucked the game up enough, let’s not add this to the mix. As Dave says teams will just time waste for the period they’re down a man. Honestly can’t think of a single rule change since they stopped allowing keepers from picking up back passes that has made the game better.

Watching MOTD this morning VAR denied 3 obvious penalties, overused a goal for a fucking shoelace being offside and gave a penalty for a foul after a proper offside that was flagged by the linesman. Fuck VAR.

Yes it’s an experiment that hasn’t worked out

Keep it for penalties and red cards but drop it for offsides

I hate when they spend two-three minutes mulling over an obvious decision, like the Holgate sending off for Sheffield U I just watched. It took me and everyone else watching literally five seconds to figure out it was a sending off. So let’s make it more complicated with blue cards? No thanks.

In this day and age there must be a better technology for VAR offside such as the semi-automated offside. Manually drawing lines is so ridiculous and if they’re going to narrow it down to whether someone’s dick hair was offside, then they need to make sure they get the exact moment the ball is struck.

I like what blue cards are trying to remedy but it doesn’t seem like a great idea.
