Things have changed a lot over the years, but one thing has remained constant and that is our love of the Mariners. People come and go, some like to post a lot and others just like to read. It's up to you how you participate in the community!

If posting is not your thing, you can interact in other ways, including voting on polls, and unlock options only available to community members.

    ccmfans.net is not only for Mariners fans either. Most of us are bonded by our support for the Mariners, but if you are a fan of another club (except the Scum, come on, we need some standards), feel free to join and get into some banter.

ALW R3 VS Sydney

How good! Clear handball. Great first save by whyman but we got to the rebound. What a game!
I thought it was controversial when Newcastle copped a very similar one and it stood on the weekend. Body part - hand is supposed to be no handball but apparently body part - ground - hand is, even if the ball is moving very fast and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Hand outside the natural arc of the body so handball.
Doesn't matter if its body to hand, still not handball unless its over the shoulder from what I recall. Its such a fine distinction though. You could have top of foot to hand and its ok but bottom of foot - ground - hand and its a penalty. Very similar time <1s, no chance to react and its treated very differently.

Law says nothing about reaction time. First two points below clearly demonstrates it is a handball.

I'm not saying it does or that it isnt handball. I was making a point about how the rules treat two very similar situations quite differently just because it hits the ground however quickly before the arm rather than going direct from body to arm.

Just got back from the game, looked like Sydney might have played slightly better but that's a massive 3 points and a good fight from the women. Who was in goals for us when Sydney scored? From the other end of the stadium it looked like a regulation save?

Also amazing effort for the guy in away bay chanting all game in the rain and pissing off my Sydney FC mates!

Saw you on TV Sydmariner. Looked a bit damp mate!

Gutsy performance. A couple of the players are a bit agricultural but total heart throughout that side and well coached.

Particularly impressed with Galic, Gomez and Wurigmula and thought Wardlow had a mighty game as well.
