The penalty in the Netherlands v Japan game yesterday was a good example of it taking way longer than it needs to.

The TV coverage I was watching, as I'm sure was the same for everyone else, showed the replay almost immediately after the penalty was given. They showed one angle, in slow motion, which showed you everything you needed to see to make a decision on whether it was a penalty. I had made my decision within 10 seconds, as would most people watching. What took 60-90 seconds I have no idea. And that was a relatively quick decision, too.

Some of them that take 2-3 minutes is way too long. If you can't decide based on 1/2 replays, then just go with whatever decision you made on the field.

I also don't like that seemingly EVERY decision is being double checked. Surely VAR can check it themselves without needing to tell the ref they are doing so. Then if they disagree, THEN tell the referee it needs to be reviewed.
