Video Assistant Referee is now as much a part of soccer as shin guards and blisters. While many (particularly those Luddites in England) wish VAR didn’t exist, we here at The18 embrace video replay. In fact, we want VAR to be used in more than just soccer.
Imagine if, as you’re going through your daily routine, you could call upon a video assistant to check something, anything. Ignoring for a moment the fact that your entire life will be recorded on video, the ways you could improve your life are endless with VAR.
Here are 18 everyday moments that need VAR outside soccer.
