    Why - its in essence common law and works well in the majority of cases - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_law - People know /knew what is acceptable and if you have the rules in black and white that people find loopholes to take advantage of it. Look at the new handball rule, you will see players boot the ball at the players hands as the rule is now explicit.

    As I said - it's highlighted what was wrong.

    the most important thing, the only important thing imo, is consistency

    how can it when the officials are picking and choosing which laws to adhere to?

    VAR is just a tool

    VAR is broken. Fixing it requires better referees. But if you had better referees, why have VAR in the first place?

    The referees are tools.

    pretty sure thats not a thing

    VAR has the potential to reduce refereeing mistakes, thats enough of a justification for me
