I'm gonna watch it later. But from what I can gather, this is a really impactful 30 for 30. Glad ESPN did it.

I'm watching the CCL final. Thought farfan would be at least on the bench, is a good game so far. I'll check it out later. I'm not really interested in it. A lot of people don't know but an exact similar accident occurred in Peru and they had more than double the casualties than Hillsborough, yet no one cares or remembers.

Still doesn't mean that people shouldn't know the truth of what happened. It's not just the casualties but it was the coverup by the powers to be...which is why it's gotten so much coverage over the years. Don't expect you understand, most don't.

As far as OP goes, have it DVRed. I'll watch but I doubt it's much different from others I've seen.

I Agree with you of course there has been cover ups. I seen several documentaries and videos of that disaster. I think everybody wants to get answers of what happened that day so it can finally be put away in peace. Unfortunately it never will. But since were talking about tragedies and cover ups i think we can all agree most have been covered up by powers to be, specially here in America starting with the Boston Bombings i believe there were insiders in our government that knew those events will unfold that day

No......I'm not a conspiracy theorist nor will I detour this thread anywhere other than it should be. As far as justice goes, we shall see, the Hillsborough Independent Panel report that came out in 2012 has helped lead to new inquests and the Attorney General to push the High Courts to quash the original verdicts. The new inquests are going on as we speak and will most likely run into 2015.

Hmmm most likely longer than 2015 I know the case was reopened but last i heard one of the security gate guards opened the gates therefore letting in thousands of more people into the stadium ending in tragedy. Idk if it was a judgmental call by the guard or someone up top made the call. And another thing why were thousands of fans lingering around the stadium if they didn't have tickets to the game ? They must had known the gates would open up later in the game, someone must of knew therefore letting other fans know to stick around. And were not talking about the 50s-70s, it was the 90s it should of been more under controlled.

The investigation is about SOOOO much more than that though. This isn't conspiracy theory and this isn't even just about the event itself anymore. It's about the lies of the police following the events, the evidence tampering, and the "blame the victims" propaganda that the police spread following the incident.

The fans themselves were never found to have committed any wrongdoing, yet they initially had all the blame cast upon them, as they were made out to be nothing more than drunken hooligans who's actions lead to deaths. This, for the most part, was simply not the case. The fact that it has taken 25 yrs already for the truth to come out is sickening, but good on those folks who continued to fight for the truth while it was clear that everyone above them was ready to sweep this mess under the rug and move on.

If you don't know the whole situation, I truly recommend last night's 30 for 30, it did a great job covering the story from all angles I felt. Hopefully soon, there will be "justice for the 96"

They did a pretty good job overall but was extremely disappointed that two such prominent figures were ignored by it Margaret Thatcher and far more importantly, Anne Williams.


The next test for the Dooley-led revitalization of the Philippine national team kicks off soon.
