Robbie Cornthwaite have a falling out with aufc? Not sure i can remember such bias "special comments" for an entire game

Eventually the world will agree with me VAR does not make soccer better and it needs to go though...

That hit Rawles foot his face than his arm what a joke of a Penalty! What the hell is he suppose to do just not go in for the challenge and allow Adelaide to score?

i dont think mr fielding will be getting a game next week
Kurt Ams in VAR is more to blame. The first pen I can understand why the ref gives it in real-time but Ams should have overturned it. Then Fielding didn't give the 3rd in real time but Ams made him look at it.

Both should have a few weeks off and be told to have a good hard long look at themselves.

Ams can never admit he is wrong remember when he upgraded a Fornaroli dive from a freekick to a penalty all because he didn't want to admit he gave Fornaroli a freekick for diving! He should have been sacked after that match!

The first pen is no way near as bad as people making out. You see them given all the time

The 3rd pen... not sure even the most biased supporter can defend that

VAR needs to go either way. Offsides and goal line tech only, its sh*t for everything else

Yes, if there was no VAR then you can understand it. You hold your hands up and say that Mauk fooled the ref. On replay, it is clear that the defender did nothing wrong. Mauk initiated contact and was already going down before the contact. It was clear simulation and the fact that the ref wasn't instructed to have another look is ridiculous.

Contact in the box. Happens alot in the EPL and people dont say boo. Those are regular pens

How often does Aguero or someone initiate contact and get the call. I dont think its a pen but they are given regularly enough that doesnt stand out as a "shocker"

It's not actually simulation if there's contact, whether he initiated it or not.

Still none of those were pens IMO, the last one was probably the closest to it.
