Norwegian term or phrase: Feil menn, men skitt au
A newspaper heading about sport.

I'm having trouble with a newspaper article written in an informal style and would really appreciate your help!
Thank you in advance.

Wrong men, but who cares...
Explanation:
The expression 'skitt au' is developed from an earlier one 'skitt, la gå', where 'skitt' is used as a swearword, somewhat milder than the English 'shit', and 'la gå' means 'never mind', 'let it pass', 'leave it alone', to be used mostly when you give up on a problem.
