Or maybe I'm just not running in the right circles to hear about it.
I don't watch enough to really comment too accurately, but from the soccer I have watched, VAR has been relatively accurate. They have multiple camera angles, etc.
The NFL brings in how much money and doesn't have cameras fixed looking down from both sides of the goal line for those reviews?
Sometimes the officiating can't get out of it's own way.
