In MLS there is always talk of adding a relegation system to the league,

Is there? Not officially. Some fans call for it, but MLS has never really said it would. MLS's goal is to expand, it's the only way it makes money. You can't court new franchises by saying "Oh by the way, there is a chance you'll be languishing in the bottom league for a while."

languishing in the bottom league for a while.

Man I would hate to languish someplace with a bunch of outcasts for years at a time.
If we can hit that bull's-eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate!

Horrible thought

VAR is beyond saving.

Is there a time limit where a bad call can no longer be reviewed? Eg. hand ball in Liverpool's penalty box but they score a goal a minute after and before it can be reviewed.

Maybe there's hope yet, apparently City had a hand on it first so it should've been a Liverpool free kick but that isn't reviewable I guess

Yonge pronounced young.
