They use one camera in a fixed position for VAR offside calls, so they can calibrate the lines. So that is the only camera that can be used for evidence in these situations. I'm fine with that, it should be the best way of analysing these things quickly (it isn't yet, but that is cos we use it so incompetently). And from what they had available, they go with the onfield call, otherwise we get into a situation further down the line where they have to trawl thru 15 cameras' footage to find a good angle....so no, stick with the one fixed camera angle, consistent at every ground.
