Nick and Steve muppet scandal

This is doing the rounds on various US Footy websites and amongst Liverpool fans. Well worth a thought or a letter to Fox as this is just terrible. These muppets have been muppets far too long, its time to see them removed. Steve HAS to go.----------------------- We are currently urging all Liverpool fans, particularly those based in USA to boycott the Fox Soccer Channel’s “Fox Football Fone-In” show following comments made by one of it’s presenters on Tuesday’s show. Co-presenter and Chelsea fan Stephen Cohen accused Liverpool fans of “directly causing the worst two disasters in English football history.” He went on to say that he’s sick of Liverpool fans ramming their success down his throat and that “there’s a disgusting side of Liverpool’s history that I’ll be happy to talk about.” Cohen was of course relating to the Hillsborough and Heysel disasters, and apparently this it not the first time he has made such slanderous and ill-informed comments on national television. Seemingly he ‘joked’ Liverpool should have 39 coffins on their badge to go with the 5 stars. Cohen’s comments were aired live to a nation which is being educated about the game of soccer and particularly about the history of the English game. Most of it’s audience would be young Americans wanting to learn about English teams and their traditions - unfortunately many will instantly tarnish the Liverpool name due to Cohen’s comments. We have written to the show, and Fox Television for which it is broadcast and are yet to receive any reply. We hope they will take action and remove this ‘presenter’ from his prime time TV slot where he continually mis-leads his easily lead audience. We urge all Liverpool fans to email fff@foxsoccer.com and Feedback@foxsports.com with your comments, particularly those based in the USA and who may have seen this particular show or any others with Cohen.

  • I expect this will find its way to You Tube. I really don't put any stock in what either of this tossers say. The only problem with sacking Steve is that they might slot in Nick Webster. That would be perfect. He already argued that Donovan should be captain. Now when that happens under Bradely he can sign their praises. Cancel the show.

  • The fat Liverpool guy is the biggest prick. He is a complete kiss-ass. I remember him once saying that Landon had made the brave decision in quitting MLS and to return to the US and push soccer into the top 3 sports. Think that was the last time I watched.

  • I am typing like a mental patient today - "quitting Germany".

  • Also note who the FFF advertizers are and cc' the email to their customer relations/marketing/outreach departments. That's the stuff.

    Scandalous shite from Cohen.

  • In case you missed it, Steven (not Steve) Cohen issued a "full and unconditional" apology on yesterday's "World Soccer Daily" radio show and will do the same on tonight's "Fox Football Fone-in" show on FSC.

    His comments are certainly indefensible - especially in regard to Hillsborough - but so are the 75 death threats that he received this week, many of which had viciously anti-Semitic content. Let's keep things in perspective lads.

  • Absolutely i wouldnt condone a death threat ever with or without the anit-Semitism but i do think he is lucky to keep his job bearing in mind on his radio show this week prior to yeaterday he was not apologetic in the slightest. Amazing what your boss's stick acheives after a lot of complaints. He is an idiot. Bring on Nick Webster in his place, or Max Bretos - ughh.

  • I think was those Velacore bigwigs. They know how to deal with stubborn belly-fat as well as stubborn fat-heads. Or maybe the WallBanger blokes threatened to line his house with TH14 cut-outs.

    I'm pleased he had to climb down on this. I hope it makes the ignorant, insufferable little twat a little less obnoxious.

  • I wouldn't even have devoted a post to these losers. They are completely insignificant.
