Great article…. enjoyed the read….

Many mistakes have been made along the way by Football admins in Australia…. for over 70 years… tis near impossible to fix in the short term… whether or not there is the willingness and long term support to fix is questionable ….

Just maybe its time to reset the expectations

Staring to think we should change our name to the Mariners Olympic or Mariner Knights…

FMD according to the FA letter JJ is off to the State & Local gov to attack our association with the view to having funds and or services reduced…

Good luck mate we are a swing seat and the size of the Football community up here is huge as a percentage of the population… 15K registered players assume 4 contacts per player… that 15 K players plus 60 K contacts i.e. 75K in a population of 310 K…

Then their was the FFA cup when we played SFC who had 4 starting players developed on the Coast including 3 from our academy…

Redmayne … academy … Wilkinson developed from a kid on teh Coast… Caceres academy…. Buhagair academy ….

No internal transfer fees paid.. ever ….

Lets not forget the 14 players the Mariners gave their first professional game to who went on to play for the Socceroos of which 4 have captained the Socceroos….

Mostly the worst weekend time slot …

Also local league thinking council that have put every obstacle possible in our way to stop further development of the COE and getting management rights for the stadium..

Both very accurate posts… but seems like FNSW & FA don’t want decent ….. as I posted above JJ using FA to go to state and local governments to pressure they don’t pay or provide services could be huge mistake on his part … IMO well overplaying his hand as I said this is a swinging seat in both state and fed elections…. and we have 15K players … so assume 4 contacts to each player thats the original 15 k players plus 60K contacts so 75K people in a population of 320K…

Can you imagine state politician telling people to pay more money to FA & FNSW otherwise they won’t provide services… and bear in mind Football on the Coast has more players than NRL / Union / AFL / Cricket combined…

Big call JJ wish you luck

The CC at both state and federal level is a swinging seat….. twice the Mariners have been a core promise for the winning member….

Love to be the government that tells the Coast we are going hinder the way we pay you or reduce your services because your local association found better insurance…. and insisted on the local association using a national data base registration rather than one localised for your local area…

The CC is a mixture of blue collar, trade, and parra professional people … they have broadly been the most supportive of FA…. but they don’t like being messed around and they don’t scare easily ….

The kids can still play its just they play for teams on the Central Coast [which they do now] its that CC teams cannot compete in NSWF activies

In your letter you sent you said..

“”””We continue to update FIFA on the situation and have also commenced discussions with the NSW Government, and local Government to ensure they understand the decision the board of CCF has taken, and what it means, including some serious implications for the participants and clubs in the region.””””

So calling in some big guns….. are you seriously threatening to get the NSW and Local government to what not provide services … or funding …. for the park teams…

Tis the way most of the Coast Community feels

Also Sheek just maybe there is some kind of kick back by the insurance company in say reduced costs to professional clubs…

Central Coast Football [Association] deregistered by Football Australia

I think what started this was the cost of the insurance and the lack of coverage of the insurance..

Central Coast Football [Association] deregistered by Football Australia

The coastal community and costal football community and the Mariners fans forum are totally behind CCF…. the local association has massive local support… the FA letter has only made people angry with FA…

Sheek very true what you say

Students at the school don’t play in the Mariners academy … but many of them double up and play for the school during the week and Mariners academy on the weekend…

Also two or three times a week the students go to the COE …. there is a lot of co-operation between the school and the club…

Hand on heart not on the other thing… the bigger clubs are sponging off the development clubs…. and the amount of youth talent that SFC in particular has wasted and left on the bench hurt Australian Football…

AS an aside twas talking to some WSW fans after the game and they were amazed at how well the players knew each others game… and I said they have been playing together for years its just they have been stepped up and the coaching staff also understand their strengths and weakness…. the backs aside from Rowles have been playing together for about three to four years … and have often trained with the first team and understand Rowles…

I read somewhere that players between 17 & 21 need a certain amount of game time to develop … SFC have them sitting on the bench and they never develop and its such a waste… another reason we need a second division

The Mariners academy starts at U 9 level and people trail each year…

Many of the current team have been in the academy since they were 14 / 15….

Take SFC last night, Keeper, Mid & Striker in the SFC starting 11 came thu the Mariners academy…

There would be some compensation to lower clubs… however it would be small as many of the players are developed in lower levels of the academy or by the Football school on the Coast that has I think 6 former Mariners as coaches…

I assume you have no idea that on the Coast we have private high school that prepares kids for Football…. started out as a sports high school but the only two sports Football and Tennis… mostly Football… two years ago they expanded to other codes but Football players make up most of the school… so for maybe 10 years CC has had an exclusive Football private high school… the SFC striker last night was a student there…

Australian football's long-term future is looking a lot brighter

A massive failing of Football in Australia is the lack of an internal transfer market…

The Mariners have given first game starts to 14 players called to the Socceroos [4 have captained the Socceroo’s] and many of these came via our academy….

The Mariners would never have had their five season of pain if they had been paid for players they developed… In this years squad of 18 we have 11 players who were developed in our academy 6 of which are locals…

The P Ants and Roar also have been development clubs… and also would have been more competitive over the years if we had internal transfers…

The key point you made is there is no and never has been a magic bullet…. and the kind would say sad… the cruel would say tragic … part is most think the answer is simple…. I would add Basketball into the mix as well…

The Roar Rugby Project: Part 7 – Why professional Rugby must be profitable and how RA has failed to respond to challenge

No the answer does not lie in keeping it simple…

The answer lies in asking the right question…

The right question will lead to a workable solution, and that solution could be complex.

You have assumed the issues and these issues relate to current practices

My question is…. What is the best structure and best management system to Advance Rugby.

My simple questions are, Rugby needs a range of stakeholders to run rugby and professional rugby in Australia needs a national domestic competition. A new board can decide how the national domestic competition can work.

The answer one having decided on the structure of the board and a national domestic competition are complex and thats when we need articles like you have written.

But without change the fall in player numbers and equally the fall in quality players is huge… most quality sports kids today move towards… AFL/ NRL/ Football/ Basketball & Cricket…

So you have overwhelmed in great detail lots to be done… but not based on a fixed structure and new direction under a new board.
