«It’s hope in a hanging snore» – but not in the Super League

Øystein Foros and Erling J. Hjelmeng: UEFA's Sopranos-like methods to stop the new competitor goes against the competition rules of the European Union.

Their chronicle «It’s hope in a hanging snore» – men ikke i Superligaen (in Norwegian) was published in Verdens Gang on 20 April, 2021.
