    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.

Offside has been revised - making it a bit easier on defenders

Hi all,

FYI IFAB are changing the interpretation of Law 11 a little.

That's a slide pack with videos.

Basically, now when a defender makes a desperate lunge of leaps for a header and they can't quite reach it and it skims off? We're back to this no longer nullifying offside. But if they should have been able to control it and just stuffed it up, it counts as playing the ball and offside is cancelled.

So, we're back to where we were - which is a fairer approach, even if it introduces more subjectivity (though as we all know, our AL refs weren't even applying the previous interpretation correctly...."oh it was a reflex action"....f**k off Delovski you absolute clown)

At least we know before the season starts what we'll need to get angry about ;-)

No idea what CCF will do given I'm not on the coast....law changes aren't implemented mid-season, but this is just a 'clarification' not an actual change.
