‘Hillsborough’ Documentary, Live On ESPN At 8pm ET Tonight: Open Thread

TV viewers in the United States will have a rare opportunity tonight to watch a stunning new documentary about the true story of what happened at the Hillsborough Disaster. Be sure to watch what I consider the most important soccer film ever made, live on ESPN tonight beginning at 8pm ET.

The public in the UK won’t get a chance to see the film until next year at the earliest due to the new inquest that began two weeks ago. Once the inquest is over, the BBC will schedule a time and date for the film to air.
