    ccmfans.net is the Central Coast Mariners fan community, and was formed in 2004, so basically the beginning of time for the Mariners. 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 you want to get rid of this message, simply click on Join Now or head over to https://www.ccmfans.net/community/register/ to join the community! It only takes a few minutes, and joining will let you post your thoughts and opinions on all things Mariners, Football, and whatever else pops into your mind. 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.

@Shaun Mielekamp does the club know when finals will be played yet? Appreciate you might not be able to share dates but the APL has been very quiet on the subject. I think of teams playing on Saturday and wonder if they’ll know if they need to back up potentially as soon as Wednesday?
Can’t do wonders for arranging promotion of the event should we be able to host.

ACL bookending the season is obviously a big issue.

“The matches were scheduled to be played in Uzbekistan starting on June 26, which has been announced as the date for this season's A-League grand final.” - FTBL
I think the writer has that wrong. The matches for various teams were scheduled up to a week earlier.

Are you in a position to be able to comment on the sale or non sale of the club
Well yes I think technically its my position as CEO to make the comment on the sale or non sale of the club ;).
But to be honest there has not been any substantial movement on the sale of the club at this time. As there has been throughout the last 12 months plenty of conversations there is nothing to update anyone on as yet.
Everything is focussed on the finals right now.

This year is the first year of the Ten / Paramount deal and first the clubs are in charge from the get go, since the club led civil war to get control ... one of the leaders in that pack was MC ...

This is quite an important year in terms of Footballs recovery in ratings, media and crowds etc... Especially in making the Ten / Paramount deal successful...

MC also said I can recall if the clubs get control of the league he will invest more.

Can you give us some indication on the clubs budget i.e. are we going to spend the least we can or are we planning to spend salary cap plus a little....

I feel not counting last season, our performance kinda dragged the league down a bit... whereas last year we lifted the league...

Look forward to where you think we are in terms of budgets especially compared to previous years...

Shaun,
With some teams doing a total rebuild of their playing roster (ie. WSW and MV) the likelihood of those teams exceeding the cap comes into question.
This is especially so with WSW, considering the playing roster last season and the upgrade so far this season.

Just a few questions that most A League fans are talking about that you may be able to clarify for us:-
1) Is there a salary cap this coming season?
If so,what is the salary cap and what are the rules of it.?

2) Is the salary cap policed?
If so, is it an independent body who polices` it?
If so,who are on this independent body.
If so what powers does it have, and what penalties are there for breaches.
If not, why not?

3) With Newcastle being financed by 3 other clubs do they still have voting rights within the APL?
If so,who directs them which way to vote?

Thanks in advance.
