Since the introduction of VAR (video assistant referee) to football, it has come under various criticism from some fans and some of these fans do not understand one key things about VAR

The one key thing many fans don't understand about the video assistant referee (VAR) is that, VAR has nothing to do with anything that happens on the pitch as long as that thing does not lead to a goal, penalty and does not involve or require a red card to a player

If there is an hand ball outside the 18 yard box or a tackle and the referee did not give it, even if the tackle is rough, as long as the tackle is not a straight red card tackle, VAR can not check

A yellow card tackle is a decision for the referee and the lines man to make, not VAR (video assistant referee)

If a player commits a foul inside his opponent's 18 yard box and the referee did not give it, as long as the player did not score, VAR can not check

VAR can only get involve if a player commits a foul inside his own 18 yard box which is a penalty kick to the opponent

If a referee mistakenly awards a free kick outside the 18 yard box, VAR can not get involve but if the referee mistakenly awards a penalty, then VAR can come in

If a referee wrongly show a yellow card to a player for a tackle or hand ball, VAR can not come in but it the referee wrongly show a red card to a player (the defender got the ball and the striker dived) then VAR can check

As long as the incident does not involve a straight red card, a penalty or a goal, VAR will not check and not matter the decision by VAR, the referee still has the final say
