Sean McArthur started this petition to Premier League and

We, the undersigned football fans, believe that the introduction of VAR (Video Assistant Referees) has failed in its primary purpose to correct “clear and obvious” mistakes and call on the Premier League to stop its use immediately. In particular the VAR approach adopted has been overly strict in the interpretation of offside (with no evidence that the technology can scientifically determine either the timing of the ball strike or a precise line parallel to the goal line) and has upheld the referee’s decision in every single penalty review to date, regardless of merit. Unlike other sports the review system is disruptive to the flow of the game, lacks transparent communication with fans and involves no obvious protocols by which to assess a decision. What is clear and obvious is that VAR is not fit for purpose.
