The videotape will make sure there are fewer discussions, it said. More fairness and fewer disputes the Coned Cup showed that a lot of work is still needed until the video is a real help. There is the 63rd match in the Confed Cup final between Germany and Chile. Timo Werner goes to the floor after an elbow by Gonzalo Jara. The referee showed Milorad Mazic the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. The referee then finds much misunderstanding. The decision is controversial and unfortunately not a single case.

Bundesliga at the Videobeweis better

In the semifinals against Portugal, the Chilean Pablo Hernandez is on the ground with two-fights in the opponent’s penalty area. In the repeat, it is clear that the Portuguese Fonte brought him down there should have been penalty. The lack of correction causes confusion among spectators.

Instead of providing for clarity, the video provokes more discussions. In addition, many decisions simply take too long. The best example is the red card against the Cameroonian Mabouka in the match against Germany. First, there was yellow, and then the referee had doubt, the scene looked at the repetition and sent the wrong player from the place. Only after a second video-observation did Mabouka. A much too long break, which disturbed the playing rhythm, caused confusion both on the pitch and in the ranks.

Communication is deficient

Another criticism is that the fans in the stadium do not get the repeat. Even the players are standing around the pitch they do not even know which scene is being considered. On the stadium screens, only a video is requested. This makes for unrest among the fans. Communication is so far inadequate.

It is clear, the video is not deleted after the mistakes at the Confed Cup, but the associations have a lot of work ahead. Because from the coming season can also be seen in the Bundesliga play decent scenes. A lot is at stake for all teams. The errors should therefore be minimized. Better trainings, more transparent communication and faster implementation are mandatory.

Discussions are part of the sport

However, even with a working videotape the discussions will not disappear. The US model shows this. American football has been used for a long time, but in spite of technical support, many scenes are still an absolute hit point for years to come.

The best example is a playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys from January 2015 where an alleged catch from Cowboys receiver Bryant was judged incomplete just before the end of the video referees. Even today, the fans of both teams are disagreeing whether the decision was correct.

But why do I bring this example from another sport? The answer: You should not expect the video to be the solution to all problems. There will always be discussions in the future. Was it a penalty? Was the red card a bit too hard? These discussions are part of the sport and are important to the fans. If the game is to be fair, however, the video need urgently a correction. There is too much at stake.

Football is the most important incident in the world. Even if it is always a lot of coal today, the whole fun for me as a spectator is still a game (sport) with which I watch, rejoice, annoy, or in positive as well as negative sense. How far is the nonsense still to be driven? Will there be court rulings in the future?
