    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!

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.

I heard something on the grapevine the other day about changes to the game in Europe. I wasn't really paying attention, something about the handball rule and also defensive walls. Anyone have a summary and whether they apply here? The thread dealing with laws of the game is locked so apologies if this isn't the right one.
You would assume so as they are FIFA rules. Hand ball is no longer assessed if deliberate etc, if your arms are away from your body then it’s handball. Been some interesting decisions in the EPL so far on that one. With the wall an attacker can no longer stand in the middle of the wall or disrupt it. That’s the general gist of the changers. The handball should be more simple but have still seen Ref’s and VAR screw it up so far.

Therefore this season we will get pinged heaps for handball and receive f all in return. Pretty standard really.

One of the most notable changes is around handball, particularly when it comes to attackers in the opposition area. The rule itself is as clear as day. "Any goal scored or created with the use of the hand or arm will be disallowed this season, even if it is accidental"
