CCM Fans and the club

Meh, people didn’t or still didn’t know who all the owners of Adelaide are and we’re wanting a run down of exactly who’s doing what for the club. If he or the club wanted him in the spotlight they would have said more. I get that we’re all desperate to see an improvement but it feels like there’s some overstepping or entitlement creeping in.

Many here have probably forgotten that we have a third director appointed around the same time asAnton. I seem to remember his role was something to do finances. I cannot remember his role specifically but would be very interested to hear how his relationship with the Club is working out.
I had forgotten this actually

Kwas was interviewed on the radio today and gave MC a serve about the lack of funding. Basically said we have 3 levels of players
a) those that have had a good career
b) those that have been tossed in but aren`t really ready for A-League
c) players that just aren`t good enough to play A-League and never will be
He went on to say the players in group a) just can`t perform with the other 2 levels of players.
From the sound of his voice he was hurting and resented the decline of the Mariners due to lack of funding...:popcorn:

Hi everyone

So sorry that there has been little communication over the last few weeks but I am sure you can all appreciate the unprecedented challenges the club was working through. I hope and pray that all of our members are safe and healthy at this time and those in isolation are taking care of themselves both physically and mentally.

There is likely to be a message to the members next week with some more detailed updates on the club. We have intended several times to get a complete update out to members but almost every time by the time we had finished writing the entire landscape had changed within hours.
This is still somewhat the case as changes are happening daily but there does appear to be a bit more certainty on the horizon so by the end of next week I anticipate that we will be able to give confirmed status on many aspects of the club.

It is obviously to say that the say survival of the Central Coast Mariners is the priority right now and we have a plan in place to get us through the next phase as the club is in full shut-down mode.

I thank everyone for their patience and I will keep in contact next week as we work through this challenging time for the club.

My email for anyone who needs is still active shaunm@ccmariners.com.au

stay safe everyone

he has been hurting because of the state of the club since the season he retired. He’s just as angry if not in some cases more than we are.

Thanks Shaun, and good luck with the huge and pretty much non-stop challenges. Take care of yourself and your family too.

I understand there is more than likely not an answer at this stage...

But how confident are that the A-League will have a broadcast agreement next season... even if that is not Fox...

Happy for a gut feel reply .... won't hold you to it...

Fans and supporters are becoming frustrated by the lack of anything from FFA ...

The one thing you could confirm is ...

"""" I am informed FFA cannot even broach the subject of a broadcast deal with another provider, as if they do it voids the existing contract between Fox & FFA"""

Is this true, i.e. JJ cannot talk to Optus otherwise it cancels the existing contract.

Last night Kayo and Foxtel pulled their A league content. And mariners TV this arvo mentions the changing media situation so maybe you’ll be hearing more about that today anyway.

But if notI don’t think Shaun would want to touch that one with a 10ft pole. Nobody wants to be the guy who derailed rights talks by saying the slightly wrong thing.
