    Default Am I blind?

    This is a pic of the VAR from tonight's game.

    I'm pretty sure Man city players arm is offside?

    Even if you don't understand football,

    Is there any part of any player wearing blue, beyond the blue line across the screen?

    The goal was given and he was deemed on side?

    What the fuck man?

    Due to the unknown angle & height of the camera that took the pic, it's impossible to tell

    The angle makes it hard to tell. Would be nice if there was a camera shot lined up to that CG blue line, or from the sideline but to more right of the screen.

    But yeah, the player's left forearm and may be hand too are a little too close to the boundary for comfort.

    In my mind the only way to be 100% on the offside rule is to have a birds eye view camera.

    Also all the players wear GPS vest to track their movements, surely with that info and a birds eye view there is no question. It can't be that hard to sort out either.

    was the ball kicked from the teams half of the pitch? Its off side if youre on the opponents side, and kick passed the defence, but not if it kicked from your own half... ffs man, learn your football! I dont even like that shit but i know the rules lmao

    WHY is it that in this day and age does football still only use a clearly insufficient number of cameras?

    Is this a Brit thing, a FIFA thing or what? American sports have almost too many cameras and you can see replays and scores from a multitude of angles. For the monies generated from football, is having a few more cameras really so much to ask?

    No Macky, the ball was played from 8 yards behind the blue line. It just really annoys me when these so called football experts think they have the answer to 100% success and all they really need to do is look a bit harder. It's hard enough changing these things but when it's half hearted in efforts, it will never last the test of time.

    All the top dogs in football are similar to the government.

    They think they know best and that the paying people should put up and shut up lol.

    It has to be a part of the body than can play the ball like head, foot, leg etc for it to be offside

    Football has resisted having cameras used in this way.... don't ask me why, like you say, must other sports employ them

    Now there's a proper answer!

    I did not know that and I'm training to be a wanker, I mean a refferee lol.

    So Harry Kane was offside last night then as it was his head the was past the line.

    I completely agree mate. The offside rule has always been a bit of a joke tbh. Then every other year they tweak the rule and make it harder for everyone lol.
