In an official note published this afternoon (4), a Basque She was informed that she will sue the Supreme Court of Sports Justice (STJD) to request an appeal against the match against Brazil de Pelotas, which was held yesterday (3), in São Januaro, by Brazilian Championship Series B“for gross violations of the rules of the game which were decisive to distort its outcome.” In addition, the club will request that the VAR be excluded from the competition.
During the Premiere broadcast, an image of the moment the move had to be analyzed was posted and indicated that the judging would have gone wrong, but noting that Grupo Globo has not yet received the image in VAR format. Soon after, the Brazilian Confederation of football (CBF), aware of what happened.
The episode sparked a lot of complaints from coach Liska as well as from football CEO Alexander Bird, minutes after the confrontation.
In the document, Vasco treated the obstacle as “non-existent, with enough distance so that there is no doubt” and referred to VAR “non-calibrated” lines I don’t grieve With the international, for the Brazilian 2020.
The club also stated in the report that “representatives will go to the headquarters of the Brazilian Football Confederation to protest the numerous interferences in refereeing in Vasco da Gama matches, as well as to request the exclusion of VAR in the Second Division.”
See the full note:
“Last Friday night (9/03), the questionable Brazilian referee (increasingly) intervened directly in the result of the Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama match. once again. We witnessed a new episode of horrific VAR errors, which determined the outcome of the match, the positions in the competition table and the course of the tournament.
A non-existent offside, with enough distance for athlete Daniel Amorim’s goal to be in doubt, and a penalty kick in favor of athlete Leo Matos, scored and then withdrawn by referee Mr Alison Sidney Furtado, after consulting with technology that theoretically aims to improve the work of professionals in the field. , managed by the Video Referee, Gilberto Rodriguez Castro Jr., altered the outcome of Vasco da Gama’s victory over Brazil-RS, in São Janorio, by the 22nd round of the Brazilian Series B Championship.
In February 2021, by Brazil 2020, Vasco had already been damaged by the VAR and his “uncalibrated lines”, in a duel against Internacional in São Januaro. The justification at the time was “the low angle of the cameras, with the shadow moving in the field.” About seven months after this unfortunate episode, which also interfered with the score on the pitch and could have changed Vasco’s position in the table, avoiding relegation, what is the justification for not having VAR handicap lines again? Seven months later, the fonts are still “not calibrated”? So why didn’t the jury follow the jury protocol and inform the team leaders of the absence of technology? And in the match against Sao Paulo, for the Brazilian Cup? Why do we not have, yet, an answer for the indefinite punishment in favor of Vasco and other blatant errors?
The Brazilian Football Confederation decided, impromptuly and without justification, to start using VAR from the return of the 2021 Brazilian Series B Championship, literally in the middle of the tournament. The most incredible and disrespectful of the clubs participating in the competition and with their fans was the choice of the Brazilian Football Confederation to have a “public” version of the already poor VAR, with fewer cameras and technological resources. What was already so bad, has become worse and more unfair, as evidenced by the absurdities of yesterday’s match in São Januaro. On the CBF website, in an official statement about the start of the use of VAR technology in the return of Series B, a note from the press office stated that “the first matches of the return of the competition will provide the tool for the referee teams. To help and give more accuracy and justice to the dispute.” In a hurry, the Brazilian Football Confederation set up VAR for a comeback, knowing that the lack of a technical structure could cause problems.
In the first division, the games take place with at least nine cameras, which always allows a camera that makes it possible to determine the offside line (in the absence of obvious “technical problems”). Yesterday, the match was played with only five cameras – as in almost all second-division matches – and in Daniel Amorim’s legal goal, there was no camera that would allow markings to be made on the line on the athlete’s foot. If there was, say, the traditional camera behind the goal – which was not there yesterday – marking could be made easier.
This shows that the use of VAR, which is irregular even with the maximum available structure, without the necessary minimum structure in the B chain, is irresponsible and unimportant.
Even with all the investments the Brazilian Football Confederation has allocated to the refereeing committee, there is no “accuracy and fairness in the dispute” with the VAR operating in this way in Brazil. Nor the efficiency of many referees scheduled for the matches. As yesterday’s referee, who interpreted the penalty with conviction and without conviction, was convinced by the VAR that the latter’s interpretation was correct, as well as the futility of the VAR, whose operation is the responsibility of the Brazilian Football Confederation.
Next Monday (06/09), club representatives will go to the headquarters of the Brazilian Football Confederation to protest the numerous refereeing interferences in Vasco da Gama matches, as well as request the exclusion of VAR in Series B. With the fewest professionals and structure in this tournament, as previously reported by the National Jury, and the consequent drop in accuracy for the technology resource being frequent, the business is generally meaningless. Continued attacks against fair play and competition fairness must cease immediately, so that there is security in the procedures and technology adopted. We cannot allow the irresponsibility and recklessness of those who authorize VAR to operate in this way, accessing the interests of our club and the credibility of the competition.
Vasco da Gama, some time ago, called for a comprehensive review of the entire arbitration process in the country. The fact is that the Brazilian Football Confederation and its jury were able to invent and create a VAR that exists only in Brazil, where the field referees are assistant video referees, and not the other way around. The leading role should go back to football, and not to referees, as it was in all sections of the competition in the Brazilian Football Confederation. Errors are not isolated. Failures are getting more and more frequent. Measures must be taken urgently.
The club will also enter the Supreme Court of Sports Justice (STJD) with a request to appeal the CR Vasco da Gama vs Grêmio Esportivo Brasil match, which was played last Friday, at São Januário Stadium, in Rio de Janeiro, for serious rule violations. From the game that was decisive in staining its score.
Vasco da Gama hopes that the governing body of Brazilian football and the Sports Justice will act effectively and immediately to prevent events like the one reported here from happening again, for the benefit of our football.NS “
