This could get messy

The controversial Video Assistant Referee system that is causing so much confusion and animosity amongst players, coaches and football fans at the moment, is to undergo a major change, in that the initial VAR decision could now be reviewed by a second VAR - the VARVAR.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
