Lowell Cohn Gets Heat from Pro Football Talk over Colin Kaepernick Posts; KNBR's Bruce Then Unloads on Cohn

Lowell Cohn/Santa Rosa Press-Democrat
 I like Lowell Cohn.


He writes bold, provocative and non, tow-the-line company business which given today's stale and mostly inside press-box scribbler silliness, is both compelling and refreshing, such as his controversial recent pieces on 49ers QB, Colin Kaepernick.


In Thursday's Pro Football Talk, they took Cohn to task for his takes on Kap; pieces that were equally loathed by his mom. (Duh!).


Naturally, one other Cohn critic got into the PFT argument, KNBR 1050 tonsil, Damon Bruce.


Perhaps this is the reason Bruce pounced on Lowell.


By the way, Damon, your Brooklyn accent is not very good but entertaining nonetheless. Remember this edict: brevity is the soul of wit too.


Ladies and gentlemen: I do believe these two men don't like each other.

  2. I read Lowell Cohn every day and recently read his take on Kap. I agree with Lowell 100%. Kap has proved nothing to date....so how is he worth such big bucks?

    1. That is just stupid.. One play away from winning the Super Bowl. One play away from winning the NFC Championship (Seattle) who went on to crush in the Super Bowl-all done in 24 starts.. He'll probably sign a multi million dollar contract soon and he has "proved nothing"....stupid....

  4. Cohn is a fool. His columns reek of trolling.

  5. Cohn was fired by the SF Chronicle decades ago which was one of their best moves ever. Lowell is a an annoying whiner who makes himself part of the story.
    It's all about him, not about sports, kind of like an insignificant Skip Bayless.

    1. Skip Bayless is humorless. At least Lowell can laugh.

  6. Damon Bruce, the true troll, has no room ever again to cast dispersions on anyone else. However, Lowell Cohn is an ass.

  7. I am a Lowell fan. Unfortunately, with Kap's mother tweeting her disdain for Lowell (with Colin RTing) the good points Lowell made are somewhat disguised by his vitriol. Bottom line, CK needs to get his head out of the clouds, avoid celebrity appearances, forget about his contract, study the playbook and his alternate receivers. If he can't, let him go.

  8. Lowell is sports fresh air. How he does it at his age when others are stuck in the past,repeating the same jokes,etc. I don't know.
    Bruce? wow,talk about going backwards over the years. Whatever impact he made..whatever ripple..is nothing but dead in the water now. He still plays the same bumpers he did in 2006,2008,2010..on and on. "Nooner" was last funny a few thousand days a go....
    Bruce needs to next call out woman for having sex with men. HE would never do it..THAT should get him pub the Bruce way. Oh,and woman and that gross thing about having babies...All Bruce topics of a winner...

    1. Lowell is sports fresh air??? Bwaaaaaaa That's hilarious. His act wore out decades ago. Seriously....his act hasn't changed since the 70's. There's a reason he's been stuck with a small paper in Sonoma County since being canned by the Chronicle. Cohn really does think it's all about him. He's a complete joke.....I will agree with your assessment of Damon Bruce.

    2. Hey Stan,

      This is Neal, Lowell is a unique breed, love his opinions, don't always agree but he has a certain vulnerability that is appealing. Bruce is a women hater wanna bee, who works at a dinky Radio Station. He is just loud and empty.

  9. Why all this vitriol about Lowell Cohn? Damon Bruce is a sexist, braying loudmouth who thinks his own farts don't smell. What the f%$# does Damon Bruce really know about sports? He came to the Bay Area after being fired by some radio station in Indiana where he was doing news. He's been fired from every radio job he's ever had because he can't stand listening to management, and thinks he knows better than they know,. The only reason he's still working for Cumulus, is because they need a live body on KNBR 1050 so there is at least one local program on a station that few listeners play attention to. Damon's recent comments about women having no place in sports were bad enough. Now he's stepped across the line by taking on a guy who at least goes into the locker rooms and clubhouses and talks to the athletes and shows up and watches the games. Lowell Cohn was covering sports when Bruce was soiling his diapers. It's the epitome of absurdity to have this young, annoying loud mouth taking shots at someone who knows a hell of a lot more about sports than he ever will!

  10. They called Cohn a hack which is accurate.

  11. High atop the San Francisco skyline, on the 29th ranked radio station in the Bay Area, it's the Damon Bruce show..." Lowell and Damon probably don't like each other because they are two trolls who desperately want the same thing - someone to notice them.

  12. I don't often agree with Lowell Cohn who seems to be only able to find negative things about everything, but on the subject of Damon Bruce I agree with him 100%. I am in the camp of those who wonder how and why Bruce manages to still have a job on radio. He is a total jerk!

  13. D. Bruce is the suck.March 7, 2014 at 12:30 PM

    I'm just waiting for D. Bruce to run his festering piehole off the rails again to be done with him once and for all. It's unavoidable and on the way.

    Question: has he had a woman sportswriter on his show since his blowup? I've stop listening to his show. I did hear him on the Amy Lawrence show (a true corporate radio hack) on her weekend show recently when I was trying to fall asleep.
    She was one of the most loudest voices when he spouted out his bilge. Hypocrites abound.

  14. I find Lowell Cohn, and Anne Killion for that fact refreashing....They unlike the majority of the Bay Area Media Hacks are not afraid to speak their minds, and not tow the line for the Santa Clara 49ers, SF Giants, Oakland A's, or the Warriors?!

    I remember when Jeff Garcia was the starting QB for the 49ers, & when Jeff was on the receiving end of some bad press, his dear old Dad would get on the radio, & complain about it! In my very humble opinion, I believe in letting your *kids* fight their *own* Battles.

    The problem is that the Niner fanbase believes that their team should "never" be subjected to ANY criticism at All. And if you do criticize the 9ers, you instantly become, "a hater, a troll, & biased against the 49ers." These 49er fans would not make in NYC where the Sports Writers hold the Head Coaches, Ownerships, & Players feet to the fire...LOL?!

  15. The best scribe in the BA is Tim Kawakami. Not afraid to stand up to the Raiders and Warriors when they need to be called out. He works like a dog and his blog is updated frequently. He is humble while being extremely opinionated. I think working for the Merc and seeing all of his colleagues disappear might have something to do with this.
