Tippeligaen, round 25: Media fervently hopes for actual excitement about the gold, young talented kid plays without a worry in the world.

27. September 2010

1 Comment

As the battle for the may-be-important fourth place rages on, the mainstream media still prove to be a bunch of clueless cowards, preferring to seek out pretend drama that may or may not become real at some point in the future. NFN will thus be the only provider of the real drama RIGHT NOW, and [...]

Oh, that crazy cup: Rosenborg ravished by pretty men in pink.

23. September 2010

Oh yeah, in addition to the league being just as delighfully wacko and devoid of logic as we should hope for – not to mention making up for often lacking in true quality – there’s also been a cup this year that is also showing some surprises; one of the biggest ones happening last night.Tweet

Kongsvinger rely on rubber duckies as aid concert disappoints

21. September 2010

1 Comment

After Norwegian Premier League club Kongsvinger last week admitted that they are “technically bankrupt”, an aid concert was hastily arranged this weekend. The concert needed to attract a crowd of 200 to break even, but only a profoundly depressing 20 people showed up, making matters even worse for the reasonably doomed club. Now Kongsvinger are [...]

Tippeliga update: The least anticipated comeback since what’s-his-name.

7. September 2010

1 Comment

What the hell? Is the unjustified and unreseached opinions on the Tippeliga back on NFN? So nobody’s died? Was it just an incredibly lazy writer? Pretty much yes. There were no rumors of my death, but if there had been, they would have been exagerrated. Also, in my defense, my real job’s been taking up [...]

Tippeligaen round 14: Molde’s merriment maliciously mauled

9. June 2010

2 Comments

What does NFN do when some of the more exciting endings to matches happen in a round of the Tippeliga? That’s right, we mess it up and get a delayed report. Partially because of boring stuff like real jobs, and partially because this writer can be a lazy bastard. Oh well, you get what you [...]

Tippeligaen round 13: The reason for sorcasms!

26. May 2010

2 Comments

NFN continues to be somewhat semi-accurate in match predictions, but we are certainly right on the money when it comes to capturing the -spirit- of this year’s Tippeliga. Almost every game had some neat gameplay happening, or somebody did something incredibly stupid. And that’s just what NFN said would happen! The result of this correctness, not to mention the combined entertainment of nice matches and stupid players, gave us all a sarcastic orgasm, or a sorcasm.

Tippeliga preview round 13: It doesn’t get any better than this

21. May 2010

3 Comments

Still high on the schadenfreude endorphins that came from this week’s cup upsets, this NFN writer is graciously feeling that the Tippeliga is right where it belongs. When the players fail to create entertainment on the field, there are plenty of people who will gladly say stupid things to a camera in the hopes that the match will look better in comparison. Although it can sometimes make his job harder, seeing as it can be troublesome writing sarcastic comments about something that is so absurd that it provides its own irony without any help. Absurdity and weak excuses are -my- job, dammit!

Oh, that crazy cup! Two tippeliga teams thoroughly trashed.

20. May 2010

The second round of the cup’s been played, and it contained a fair amount of action. Referee blunders, underdogs giving a good fight until nearly the end… But the fourteen Tippeliga teams that did manage to get through one way or another isn’t what everyone’s talking about.

The Tippeliga Reviewer that isn’t fired for competence

18. May 2010

5 Comments

Before taking over the prediction part, I was told to maintain NFN’s rather low standards of accuracy, lest I get fired from this gig, and also get a good “high school swirling” going on*. Thankfully, I have proved to be just as incompetent as Lars Sivertsen, so here are your excuses for why I was wrong most of the time:

The earliest preview, and the new evil overlord of NFN’s Norwegian segment

OK, with Lars out of the picture, that leaves the door open for me gaining world domination… MOWAHAHAHA! Anyway, this preview’s a bit early because the Norwegian cup is also starting soon.

More Midweek Madness After Rubbish Round

We here at NFN-towers are a privileged bunch. Unlike every other media-outlet, we don’t need to talk up our product. We don’t need to feed and pamper our golden goose. Like pear-cider peddler and occasional comedian Mark Watson, we can give it to you straight. Round 9 of the Tippeliga was utter dross.Tweet

Round 8: Vivacious Vålerenga violate Odd

27. April 2010

6 Comments

Well that was strange. Eight rounds in and the Tippeliga still doesn’t make much sense, but even in that context Vålerenga inflicting a 6-1 smackdown on Odd was a bit of a bolt from the blue. Also, reluctant and grudge-laden credit where it’s due: Brann were really quite good..Tweet
