Even with the use of VAR, football remains free-flowing. Momentary stoppages and restarts slightly reduce the flow of the game, but on the whole, football maintains everything that has made it a revered sport. In an average game, the spontaneity, natural flow, and sudden shifts in momentum typify most of the game. The usage of VAR loses only small intervals of time from the match. This technology is a fair trade-off for the precise information provided by VAR technology.
VAR stoppages are also sporadic. When they do happen, it is usually at the urging of the disadvantaged team and their fans. The technology would not exist if no fans and teams were in favor of its existence.
