David, Axel & Helgi: New tiers, loyalty and a tale of Tweets

As an experiment, we at Karfan.is are going to put out english spoken podcasts regularly about the Domino’s men’s and women’s leagues. Ideas and improvements to this show are welcomed and we ask that you send them to karfan@karfan.is.

In our sixth podcast about the Men’s Premier League 2018-2019, sponsored by Domino’s Pizza, David, Axel and Helgi discuss the first two rounds after the Christmas break and how some results have surprised them. Tindastóll may have been exposed after two subpar games and Keflavík is slipping a little at the halfway point. Grindavík and Þór Þorlákshöfn are climbing the rankings and new tiers are discussed.

Loyalty is a subject of debate as Terrell Vinson has been bad-mouthing his former team and Kendall’s jump to France is an interesting wrinkle in Valur’s season. The board of the Icelandic Basketball federation has reported a couple of Tweets by a player to their disciplinary committee which has lots of players and fans up in arms. Helgi has taken the lead in the predictions game and predictions for the next few rounds are made. Enjoy.

Hosts: Helgi Hrafn Ólafsson, David Patchell and Axel Örn Sæmundsson
