You should've been there! (and that's you getting a hard draw in the first round, you cheeky monkey...)

....and the winner is......

No-one!!

Who could have predicted he would hold out until 10:28 seconds into the broadcast... :D

As for a "hard draw" I'm playing Goblins at the World Cup..... Is there an easy draw??

Where is the draw?

Is there a link to it?

great show (despite it not being available life in Germany, damn GEMA :pissed: )


just three thing I had a problem with:
a) the echo was a bit disturbing
b) Where was the celebrity co-host and the cheerleaders?
c) why in the world do I have to play the strongest coach of the opposing team? :-? :lol:

No idea where the echo came from - maybe because I had the youtube running too? But had it muted, so this was a bit disappointing. Ah well.

As to the others, that was out of my control!

First off: excellent work Sann, this was fun to follow.

For the future this could be done even more sexy, though.

Thoughts:

- some software that pops one team out at the time (like the "automatic draw" in Football Manager) to build suspense.
- a studio with guests commenting. People like Beppe and the organizers (Andrea Perelli) would be natural choices.

I realize this is a bit of an ask, it just would be cool, and I guess the Swedes are all over this for Eurobowl 2016 ;-)

Thank you Sann for making the first round draw entertaining!

Do you intend to post the round-by-round results on the NAF site anywhere? Basically what I'm hoping for is a link I can send to my friends to follow the results.

This link will get everything posted on thenaf.net about WC3 - round by round standings, results, draw and group standings: http://www.thenaf.net/tag/nafwc3/

Though that displays the whole post, not just a summary, and can't figure out how to change that, so probably easiest just to go here: http://www.thenaf.net/welcome/stories/

As all the posts over the weekend will be about the WC.

I thought about revealing the teams one round at a time, but seemed like overkill :D

Glad people enjoyed it!

Mike

Michael! Those legs!

Do you shave them, or use depilatory cream?

This was great Mike, thanks for doing it.

Next time get the NAF to pay for a celebrity guest to add a bit of pizazz ;-)
