    The fun new game where contestants use skill and judgement to suggest how an A League VAR would make the wrong call.
    I'll start...

    This one is quite tricky. Besiktas are a big team dominating this game, so the VAR must give the goal, but that would be the correct decision, which ALVAR cannot do. I'm stumped already.

    This would have been very, very difficult for the ref to get right, no doubt. AR won't be of much help - almost impossible to see which side of the post it crosses on. All you see is a net shake and the ball go out. same as the ref. I've had this sort of thing happen, really messes with your head and you're left not really sure of what happened....because even though you thought it went in, if it's now out then it didn't possibly go in....right?

    As for the VAR? Depends on which team is involved, and whether Kris Griffiths-Jones ducked out to get another Big mac.

    If MV scored? They'd correct it. if they conceded? Oops, kicked out the plug again!!

    Interesting radio piece about referees and star players in NBL
    What would ALVAR do?
    Expensively install cheap equipment, fail to train the white men you employ, continue to only employ white men and worsen the perception of fairness exactly when the very concept us under attack from broad social trends.
