Listen to referee in-game audio as officials talk Video Review on MLS Decision Day

It's the type of inside access into the minds (and ears) of referees that only comes in the weekly feature "Inside Video Review."

Former MLS referee Greg Barkey gives viewers a peek behind the process for four key calls from the final day of the MLS regular season, including two offside calls and a red card that was originally missed on the field.  

The final play is even more compelling: the review of a possible penalty for a hand ball in the Portland Timbers' win over the San Jose Earthquakes. You can listen to the conversation that was had between the VAR and head referee and it's a window into the subjective nature of hand ball calls.
