49-year-old DT Javon Kinlaw, author of Bay Area gets involved in a wild vendetta

A feud between 49ers defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw and Bay Area longtime sports writer Grant Cohn ended spectacularly on Tuesday, with Kinlaw facing Cohn in training and then scolding him later in the author’s live stream.

Cohn, a second-generation team writing for the 49ers on a Sports Illustrated blog, mocks Kinlaw as prone to a bodily injury almost from the time he was drafted in 2020. According to Cohn, Kinlaw looked him down Niners OTA in Santa Clara on Tuesday. As Cohn he said with a huge smile on his facehe replied by asking Kinlaw “Why do you look at me like that, Javon?”

At that point, Kinlaw apparently decided he had heard enough. Kinlaw reportedly responded by calling him a “donkey bitch” and banging his hat on his head, according to Cohn. AP writer Josh Dubow, who was there, confirmed Cohn’s account.

In a video that summarizes the first confrontation with Kinlaw, Cohn freely admitted that he said a “one hundred negative thingsabout Kinlaw, including saying he has an “80 year old knee”. But when Kinlaw appeared on the stream hours later, Cohn pretended he did not know why the player was crazy. This is the difference between Cohn and the real Jim Rome trolls: He could not keep his story straight.

Kinlaw finally got on Cohn’s night stream – while eating – and that’s when things got really wild. “Do you think you represent the 49ers well right now?” Con screamed repeatedly. “Do you think the 49ers are proud of what you are saying right now?” Kinlaw responded by cutting wrestling promos as dinner overflowed from his mouth.

Kinlaw more or less admitted that Cohn’s version of the facts from practice was accurate. Adding a little color.


“When I pushed you to f-king, you f-king who trembles like a coward, a voice lighter than f-king my baby, fam,” Kinlaou told Kon. “What’s up with that?”

Cohn, in the security of his home at this point, asked Kinlaw if he thought he was afraid of the NFL 6-5, 320-pound player.

“I do not give af-k if you are [scared] or not “, Kinlaou answered. “All I know is when I approached you, your body temperature was as cold as ice; your balls had shrunk, little one. [N-word]. » (The size of Cohn’s genitals was an issue that Kinlaw often visited again on the stream.)


Despite all the insistence that “my nuts are bigger than yours”, Kinlaw was right. “Stop talking about me as if I were an animal or something,” Kinlaw asked Cohn. “No one is with you. … You have to find a new job. ”

For his part, when he did not complain about the so-called “threatened“, Conn was enjoying the attention.

Javon Kinlow called me a “donkey bitch” today. You can not say that. “For me it was one of the best days of my life.” said Con. “Definitely one of the best days of my career. I’m honored that Javon Kinlaw thinks I’re a jerk. I have worked so hard in my life to gain this status. Thank you, Javon. “

Later in the stream, Cohn admitted that he was excited to make Kinlaw so angry and that he had learned his tricks as a legacy.

“My dad was in the industry,” Cohn said of his father, Lowell Cohn, a notorious longtime San Francisco Chronicle and Santa Rosa Press Democrat columnist who once compared PED users to murderers, among many others. “He put me in the game when I was very young. Why if [Kinlaw] he touched me, if he pushed me, man. I could retire today. “That went through my mind: I’re going to be a millionaire thanks to Javon Kinlaw.”

Niners defensive end Arik Armstead, who has been bored with the younger Cohn since working for his father’s newspaper, shared this part of the live stream with disgust. “This is the type of low life we ​​leave in our building,” Armstead said wrote on Tuesday night. “He would rather compete and challenge players to hit him to retire instead of doing his ‘job’ in journalism.” Long Taybor snapper Pepper said the writings of Con it was “low effort s — tposting.” (Many NFL players in other teams, including a long 49th, agreed.)

Deebo Samuel wrote on Instagram that he had blocked Cohn, while another 49-year-old, Brandon Aiyuk, pointed out Cohn’s cowardice in handling the whole matter. “If you leave tell a little about someone standing in this s – t,” Aiyuk wrote. “Do not back down and start playing victim.”

The 49ers and Cohn did not respond to requests for comment Wednesday, though Cohn spent most of the morning complaining. on Twitter.
