Frimino's armpit was off-side

Kind of ridiculous using VAR and disallowed a goal 'cos a player's armpit was off-side.

Certainly, put a clown in charge and you ended up with a circus.
[See, padre, you are being "entertained" at football games without going to a circus.]

Why can't they use logic like in athletic events where during photo finish, it is the chest that counts.
E.g. just align the player's chest with the line of the chest of the defender to determine off-side decision.

Another proposal is to copy NFL.
That is, managers are allowed two challenges per half.
If both challenges are successful, they are entitled to a 3rd challenge.
This will certainly improves the flow of the game.

Of course, like NFL, and also union rugby, all touch-downs (and goals in football) are subjected to video review to confirm the touch-down or goals.

This will be an improvement and the onus is on the football manager to decide when they will use their 2 no. challenges per half, instead of pestering and pressurising the referee to use VAR.

If your offside your offside full stop.
Clubs voted for it.

Really?
When I played football during the Stone Age, when you are in-line and abreast of the defender, you are not off-side?
So what if my armpit strayed across whereas my chest is still in-line with the defender?

Then your offside.
