Sao Paulo, Brazil
VAR Technology: “It Doesn’t Hit the Scanning Process”
Verdict: Cut while falling and the other standing in front of it.
VAR: “I don’t see it as a penalty here, right? The leg is already stopped. The foot is stopped to the side and he trips over his foot. He can’t hit, can he?”
AVAR: “Is this connection without any effect, Adriano?”
VAR Technology: ‘No effect whatsoever’
AVAR: “That’s right. Camera. Watch this effect, Adriano.”
VAR: “I don’t see any impact here. The leg is already off. There’s a contact in there. It’s back a little bit. That knee to knee over there”
AVAR: “André is on top of the play too, you can see. Watch André watch the play well”
VAR: “The leg is already there. And as he turns that way, he’ll hit the defender. For me, it’s a normal throw.”
Thus began the biggest nightmare of Brazilian refereeing, since the arrival of VAR to the country in 2018.
The show collected everything it could not.
In yesterday’s match, at the Maracanã, Matthews from Flamengo managed to defeat Camacho from Santos, in a clear and indisputable way. Obvious penalty.
Judge André Luiz Freitas Castro was eight meters away from playing facing the court. But he did not have the security to mark the penalty kick and transfer the responsibility to Adriano Milczvski, who is in charge of the video refereeing.
The error was already very serious.
But for the duo’s astral inferno to complete, the worst that could happen happened. In the same movement, Flamengo quickly retreated and Pedro scored a humiliating goal against Santos.
The match ended 3-1 for the Reds and Blacks.
And with widespread rebellion by the players, the technical committee and, essentially, the Santos management. And the club, after losing to the mixed team Flamengo, stopped in twelfth place. Moving away from the dream of feuding for the pre-Libertadores, which should be reserved for the top eight in Brazil.
President Andres Rueda banned everyone from being interviewed in the Maracana in protest.
He even issued a note mocking the situation.
Why does CBF have VAR technology?
“This referee is shameful and is increasingly hurting Brazilian football. This VAR and field referee must be excluded. We ask these gentlemen not to play in our matches again.
A VAR query hasn’t even been performed. We understand this has gone from a common mistake to a disastrous one.
“What they did today was criminal.
“In the last two games, we sent error messages and did not receive a response. On the contrary, we were hurt again.
“In several matches, referees are biased. Should we think it is a directed thing?
“Why would Mister Sene lie that they are investing in training, if these rulers have no less preparation?
“What else should happen?
“Santos will no longer tolerate this repeated lack of professionalism from an entity that has clubs as a priority.
“We want the referee’s conversation with the VAR to be made public immediately. Enough of the ‘fouls’ which, being so egregious, lead us to believe they are not just fouls.”
But in an unprecedented way, immediately after the match, he stopped the two referees involved in a major foul in the match.
“The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) jury has decided to indefinitely suspend referees Andre Luiz de Freitas Castro and Video Assistant Referee (VAR) Adriano Milcewski for their understanding that their performance, in the match between Flamengo x Santos, is valid for the 34th round of Series A 2022, It was below the required standards. These officials will be included in the arbitration performance assistance program.”
The decision was firm and fair, but without the slightest need to be public.
The rulers, in addition to knowing that they were wrong, were humiliated.
The decision can be made internally.
This situation occurs when the Brazilian referees decided to establish the National Union of Referees in Recife.
The unions of Ceará, Parana, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul and São Paulo are behind the movement. Attorney Gisline Nunes, who co-created the Pele Law, provides legal shelter for arbitrators.
The appearance of the establishment of the Federation was harsh.
“A historic moment for us, who have waited 25 years for this. In a moment of chaos, order has been restored. The Federation comes to fight on equal terms with the joint border force. The only difference is the budget. We are using all possible strategies. The Brazilian judgment would be appreciated.” .. now with the details: legitimate representation in the judicial sphere, with all possible weapons .. the Brazilians.
“Entities must be congratulated. Of the 27 states, we are here with 24. This shows the union, it shows that everything we have done so far has credibility. To liberate Brazilian rule from this slavery that has persisted for so long in the National Referees Union, Salmo Valentim, said, “In the hands of the Brazilian Confederation and the Federations”.
The meeting of the establishment of the Federation of Rulers was held in August.
They promise not to back down.
What happened yesterday was met with extreme weakness by the most experienced judges.
They realize that they are under increasing pressure.
and not supported.
Remember that they follow amateurs.
They are not professionals.
There is no interest on the part of the CBF, due to work issues, such as retirement.
The situation is very complicated.
A more rigorous situation, such as a referee blow, is not excluded.
There is a lot of anger about what happened to Andre Luis Freitas Castro and Adriano Milcewski.
With humiliation in the public arena…
