It's not really the wisest thing to do if you're already on a yellow, and he can have no complaints about getting booked for it.
    he can. It was after 36 minutes and was ridiculous in the circumstances. we have all seen players taking far longer and not getting booked. do you believe a french or german etc player would get booked in the circumstances?

    at least previously, not sure now, Mbappe would've been offside immediately once the ball was kicked by his own player passing to him while he was in an offside position. ie the player was offside once the ball was played forward rather than when the player received the ball

    Under the rules, the player becomes onside when the opponent plays the ball, so there's no reason for the VAR to not give a goal. The rule can be changed if people want it changed, but all the VAR did was apply the rule as it stands. That's what he's there for.

    You can be booked after 36 seconds, 36 minutes, or 96 minutes. I don't know why it took him 20 seconds to do something that he should be able to do in 2 seconds flat, but If you take that long to take a throw in, you run the risk of getting a yellow card and yellow cards have been given for it in the past. If he didn't get himself booked earlier, nobody would have said a word about it. In any case, it's not a VAR matter.

    Yeah, like a lot of VAR controversies, it seems the real controversy is over application of the rules. In both instances I would say the application was correct, albeit in the second instance it comes from rules that are only ever selectively enforced, so anger is justified.

    I think somewhere in this thread I posited if there could be some kind of automated offside technology in the future, and here's a step towards that: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/59461288

    I'm not sure if this will speed the process up as much as they think it will, it might save a few seconds maybe.
