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!

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.
That doesn’t matter for loans as far as the cap is concerned afaik. Hard to find anything set in stone but looks like it was tightened up around 2015. But as others have said who is going to investigate the chairman (or whatever Lederer is) of the independent leagueDukey is on loan so I expect his parent club will be tipping in a fair bit of his wages. Having said that, the sooner they dump the cap the better (as long as transfer fees come in at the same time)
A quick scout around the league and we'll quickly see who the beneficiaries of such a transfer rule will benefit. Would mean we get better young talent for a shorter time however may enable the signing of legitimate foreigners. OTOH it may result in the stacking of squads (who can afford it) of said young talent, without a cap, to stop fees having to be paid at all. I can see both the for and against of such a rule. I think it would need to be a heavily regulated law here in AusDukey is on loan so I expect his parent club will be tipping in a fair bit of his wages.

That young talent needs to make a decision if they want to be 3rd or 4th in line at a top club or getting regular minutes off the bench at a less successful club. There will always be someone ambitious enough to take the opportunity.OTOH it may result in the stacking of squads (who can afford it) of said young talent, without a cap, to stop fees having to be paid at all
