Former Fox Soccer Channel analyst Steve Cohen (above) has seemingly landed on his feet with the announcement he’s been hired by ESPN. On the off-chance no one at the Worldwide Leader can remember Cohen’s most Google-able public moments, ie. his 2009 podcast comments alleging Hillsborough Disaster victims were essentially asking for it — The Empire Of The Kop’s Scott Stewart is happy to provide the background check, free of charge.
Cohen claimed, multiple times, that it was to the fault of LFC fans that the incident occurred, and despite his partners attempting to move on, Cohen ignored their request and continued in his lighting of a terrible fire of comments directed at LFC fans and Hillsborough victims. When asked “What’s wrong with honoring the victims?” Cohen replied, “What’s wrong with it? I’ll tell you what’s wrong with it, it was their own undoing!”
Please reconsider your decision in putting Steven Cohen in a position of football (soccer) pundit before he says something on-air that further disrespects LFC, your station, but most importantly, the fans and their families who have lost loved ones in these tragedies. Steven Cohen is not the right man for the job, he’s not the right man for any job. Please reconsider your decision to hire Cohen.
