Nos Audietis, Episode 260b: Garth Lagerwey talks about successful red card appeal

Mike Russell/Sounder at Heart

As it turned out, Jeremiah had a chance to interview Garth Lagerwey the same day our normal show was released. We are planning to release that full interview next week. But as the interview was wrapping up, we got word that Roman Torres' red card had been rescinded.

Being that we already had Lagerwey on the record, it seemed like a good chance to get his thoughts on not only the successful appeal, but his thoughts on how VAR is currently being used.

While Lagerwey wasn’t exactly ready to dunk on PRO or referee Drew Fischer, he did seem to at least share the frustrations of many fans that VAR is not currently being used to its full potential. He also said the team is just as unclear on what was said between the VAR and Fischer that led them to come to their decision.
