Displayed to the entire footballing community of Australia during Sunday Nights’ most controversial time-slot, Adelaide United seem to have absorbed Sydney FC’s almighty VAR superpowers.
As Chris Beath was unable to make any decisions of his own, it was left to the blokes upstairs controlling the VAR. The blokes had 3 calls throughout Adelaide United’s 2-0 Victory to the Wanderers.
The Wanderers community disgusted by this display, took to social media “I AM DONE. SO DONE.” many Wanderers fans tweeted. Whilst being ‘done’ many continued to relinquish hate throughout what is usually a clean and boring Timeline on a Sunday night.
The clash involved 3 red cards in total including a very obvious studs up challenge by Ben Garuccio that clearly involved a thorough search through the rule book, page by page, to see if studs risen is actually a problem.
Earlier in the match, we found Robbie Cornthwaite ready to hit Adelaide’s exciting nightlife early as that’s the only way they do it in Adelaide. The Wanderers copped a hand ball in the box decision, very similar to the one seen the night before in the Sydney FC v Brisbane match. This ‘potential hand ball’ was sent to the VAR and over turned to a yellow, second for Corny in 20 minutes. The supporters infuriated as it was happening to their team.
It is believed Adelaide United physically sucked the ability to control the VAR from Sydney FC during Tuesday nights’ clash. While the VAR, strong in its being, rather than leaping from one team to the other, it has actually expanded in power and strength.
However this Friday night is set to be a ‘Clash of the VAR Derby’ as Sydney FC travel to Adelaide to face the FFA Cup runners up in this compelling, non-repetitive 10- team A-League Competition. Will each fight it out as per an e-sports match and might as well take a seat on the Telstra sideline leather-bound chairs? Will Sydney FC easily win because they are the almighty champions? Will Adelaide create a ‘small children in need’ round in order to prove they do not hate all small children, just Sydney siders? Or will Brisbane Roar contain the powers because FFA and everybody else just hate the Wanderers?
