Three years ago we (LFC supporters) were able to get Steve Cohen fired from Fox Soccer and his radio show taken off the air. The Londoner expat is still unrepentant about all the hurtful things he said and is now spewing more vile and lies.
I had a heated exchange with Cohen on Twitter a few days ago in which he was claiming that Liverpool fans ‘murdered’ the 96. He also likes to lump the Hillsborough and Heysel tragedies together with his 135 tweets showing disrespect for all those who died in both of these tragedies. I didn’t want to make a big deal about all this he said because I thought he was now just reduced to just another Twitter troll and didn’t want to give his twitter account @EveNewtonJobs exposure fearing that other trolls will follow him.
Earlier this week funny-man Alan Davies was very insensitive remark and tried to TELL the Hillsborough families on how they should mourn their loved ones. Cohen jumped on that bandwagon and wrote an article that Goal.com were foolish enough to publish it. In the article Cohen claims that a more fitting memorial to the 96 would be to play the game on Sunday. Yes this is the same Steve Cohen who had attacked those same family members on his show three years ago. Yes this is the same Steve Cohen who has disrespected the 96 time and time again. Yes this is the same Steve Cohen that thinks that joking and singing about death is funny. Shame on Goal.com for publishing that disrespectful piece of vile.
More alarming however is that NBC Sports has offered him a job and he (Cohen) claimed on Twitter that he has already started working for them. A few months ago ESPN was flirting with the idea of hiring Cohen however swift action by us (Liverpool supporters) made ESPN reconsider. This NBC thing has gone below our radar so we need to get the word out and let NBC know what this guy is really made of.
Justice for the 96.
