    To answer your question about the iPhone games, EA has announced that they will be focusing heavily on the iPhone and the next round of their popular sports console games will be available on the iPhone and that does include FIFA 10 and Madden to name a few.

    A headline that has gone unmentioned:

    “The Gaffer continues to duck the allegations that he has incited terroristic threats against World Soccer Daily for his own personal gain.”

  3. The Gaffer says:


    On Wednesday, I publicly stated my opposition to the despicable phone calls and e-mails that Cohen has received:

    I have incited no terrorist threats against World Soccer Daily. And have not used the case for my own personal gain. I was simply stating the facts in an objective manner.

    In the meantime, I’m still waiting to hear from Cohen an admission that he was wrong, that he has retracted his statements and to hear an apology to his listeners and Liverpool fans.

    Yeah, objective facts. Just like anything Bill O’Reilly says about Keith Olbermann is an “objective fact.”
