      Sorry if this sounds harsh , but your post really pissed me off. how can you contradict yourself so much? only read it if theres no mirror , only read the sport . THERE IS NO EXCUSE. dont ever have that f***ing rag in ur house ever again. I cant stand having is near me to be honest. The other day I was in the soccerbus getting dropped off at anfield and to my horror I seen the s*n in the f***ing drivers window , I mean WTF. I let him know what I thought and he was ashamed.(quite right so)
      Thats one problem I find with out of towners , they just dont understand what it is to b a scouser and be judged by thousnads if not millions of people because of stuff like that piece of scum.

      sorry it was my second post or sumthing , just thought it needed to be said.

      Oi! Leave our Nic alone

      Seriously mate, as you said it's your second post, attacking regular posters won't win you any friends. If you look back through the topic you'll see that myself & JD have already raised the point with her, and she now realises the full implications & won't be reading that paper anymore.

      As for out of towners not understanding, I'm from the south, have been all my life, and have never lived in Liverpool. Now have a look who started this topic. You're complaining about being judged as a scouser, yet in the same sentence you're judging all non-scousers, quite hypocritical really.

      Hehe thanks for sticking up for me Eddie :)
      I was just gonna reply to say I know the story more now, I didn't really know it before, so I don't read it.
      Although I didn't get to print that thing out for my Dad, will do it in the summer. I'm afraid he might not definitely stop buying it, but I for one ain't gonna read it ever again ever!
      But if he asks me to go get his papers, if he decides to keep buying The sun, I won't get it, just The Mirror. Hah.

      LazB07 - I agree with your post to an extent.  It did annoy me the first time had read Nic's post but I think education is the best approach forward.  I for one, would like the next time Nicola and her dad visit Anfield for her dad to bring that paper with him and see what kind of reaction he gets.

      The Sun newspaper made personal attacks against the City of Liverpool, not just its fans, and that is why Scousers  (like myself) revile it that bit more than, as you say, the OOT's.  But that's not the full story as EddieC proves.

      It's a scum paper, and as long as we continue to post messages like this (bearing in mind it was 18 years ago and we still talk about it so passionately) then we are doing the right thing and informing younger fans, and fans that maybe don't live as local as some of us.

      What's an OOT? ???
      I'm sorry, on behalf of my Dad, and myself, that he reads the sh*te that is the sun.

      Lets never forget what that dirty rag the s** said about us as Scousers and Liverpool supporters. I have never picked this rag up from that day to this and never will.
      When we win on wednesday and have a huge following,  lets never forget we are always without 96 supporters.

      Apology accepted lazb07 :)

      Was at some friends' flat yesterday, and one of them was in the kitchen sat on the sofa, reading the paper; holding it up like so I couldn't really see her face, I didn't see the front of it, but I was like "ooh can I read the sports when you're done" and so she closed it and handed it to me, but I realised it was the sun before I touched it so I jumped back a bit so I didn't touch it, she thought there was a spider or something and jumped up, screamed and threw the paper across the kitchen.. funny as FUCK.
      I didn't read it anyway ;D I told her I didn't wanna read the scum.

      Point 1: Even if it wasn't for the utter sh*te about LFC fans/scoucers etc, I've never understood why would anyone want to read that rag anyway? Not exactly top quality, unbiased journalism is it?!

      Point 2: I suppose the younger supporters who didn't know why we don't buy that paper, also think that we turned against Souness (just) because he was a bad manager! If you do then you should know that he sold the story of his heart op to that rag, which appeared on the front page of the s*n in 1992 (I think it might of even been on the anniversary of Hillsborough!) The insensitivity of this obviously offended a hell of a lot of people.
      (If this point has been discussed before, sorry, I'm new to this site.)

      I quite understand everyones revulsion of the sun following Hillsborough. I used to read it but became continually annoyed with the standard of journalism/editing long before Hillsborough. I felt that the standard of editing was such that, what was printed was directed at individuals with extremely low inteligence. It's so insulting to assume that all the readers are without thier own opinions on subjects and I'm afraid, even before Hillsborough, I came to judge peoples inteligence by the sun. Regular readers are morons regardless. I have read the Express now for more than 20 Years. Best tabloid going.

      Am I right in thinking that the News of the world is a sunday version of the s*n?
      Personally I cant stand that rag, I dont buy or read the s*n but where I work they sell it and now and again I have to touch it. It really makes my skin crawl.
      I cant help but give the people who buy it dirty looks.

      I was there that day and agree completely with everything that has been said. I personally never buy the s*n...... However..... I use a website "http://www.newsnow.co.uk/newsfeed/?name=Liverpool" which basically brings any story involving Liverpool wordwide onto one page. I was amazed to see that the s*n had a internet paper..... worse than that was that there is a forum fans to have their say..... Unforgivably, there are "LIVERPOOL FANS" (please excuse the sarcasm) using the site and arguing about with scum fans. etc etc. Wot the *&%$ are these so called fans doing on the s*n forum. By rights, this particular forum shoul be void of any true liverpool fans!

      Unfortunately that is why threads like this exist on most Liverpool FC forums - to educate newer fans and older fans (who have been living under a rock).
