    Robbie Russel can now, at the same moment as I'm writing this, celebrate his first Norwegian Tippeligaen Gold..
    This is RBK's 13th gold (1 championship title away from world record!) in a row.. But by far the most exciting end to the season IN HISTORY! Vålerenga (silver) had the gold in their pocket 2 minuetes before full-time, but "only" managed a 3-0 win at home against Stabæk, and then lost the gold by O-N-E goal, when the man of the match against Lyn scored his 3rd goal of the match and brought RBK ahead on scoring more goals! :D ;)

    You are not supposed to put game results in the title of a thread.

    Royal league will be fought out between the top four clubs from Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Three groups of four in the first round, two groups of 3 in the second round, then semifinals and final. I think. They may go straight to the final from the second round.

    Russell assisted nicely on the third RBK goal. The air went out of Oslo tonight at the final whistle. Poor VIF supporters.

    It's mainly so that people who are recording the game and going to watch it later can know which threads to avoid if they do not want to know the final score when they are watching it.

    Russell gets a 6 from vg.no

    In the highlights from tv2.no Russell assists as noted above and also has a throw-in bounce off the post. Even though a goal can't be directly scored off a throw in, it's interesting.

    A little off topic, but I wonder why someone decided to create the rule "one can't directly score off a throw-in"

    for that matter-ever wonder what a pro soccer gane would like like without the off-side rule? I would be interested to see.

    Because a throw-in was only intended as a method of putting the ball back into play. It was NOT expected nor intended to be an offensive weapon. Tha'ts why the mechanics of a throw in are as they are.

    Throwing the ball with both hands, on the sides of the ball, over the head, and both feet touching the ground is not the way to throw the ball a long distance.
