Breaking news about the Andover High School hockey scandal……
BREAKING: Andover hockey coaches who were placed on leave after allegations of depriving players of food have been CLEARED of wrongdoing by the school. Latest now on #WBZ.

Case closed. They found out what we found out weeks ago – this entire “scandal” is nothing more than one parent and a corrupt superintendent using state resources to get back at a coach for benching their kids. Failed country music singer Scott Nichols is mad because his kid got demoted to JV this year so he made up a lie about kids not being given food or water during a road trip. Easily produced receipts from Panera Bread, along with emails from coaches telling kids to pack food, water, and snack money, proved that he was lying.
But corrupt, vertically challenged failed fencer Shelley Berman saw this as the opportunity he was waiting for to get revenge on a coach who benched his crappy, hyphenated last name son Dale two years ago. He took it. He wasted taxpayer resources. He lied to parents and the media about the existence of that 6 page letter. He lied about his intentions. And he was backed up by a corrupt hack townie School Committee chairman named Susan McReady who is NOTHING the second she crosses the Andover town line.
It literally took three days for a privately run organization to “investigate” what DCF has been “investigating” for the last month. That’s how useless and corrupt DCF is. This is why kids all over Massachusetts are dying. Because DCF is run by useless maggots who fill their pockets and refuse to do their jobs. It’s time to completely dismantle DCF and have organizations in the private sector compete for the right to contract with the state for these sorts of cases. This is the result of a bloated, public sector organization that doesn’t have to do their job because they’re all getting paid no matter what.
And the principal is completely lying when he says that he has to wait for DCF to complete their investigation. Bullshit. DCF has no control over school personnel matters. They have no authority to tell schools who they can and cannot employ. The Andover Public Schools don’t have to wait for an organization that continually lets kids die under their watch to finish a simple investigation, before resuming business as usual.
Grow a sack Principal Conrad. Tell your carpetbagging boss that this is your school, you’re in charge, and you decide who is coaching your teams. You have the authority to end this right now. The company you hired and spent taxpayer money has reached the conclusion that the coach should be able to coach. Case closed. If he’s not coaching tomorrow then what was the point of that? I understand that it’s bad optics to have a coach under DCF investigation sitting on the bench around kids. But everyone in town knows the truth at this point, so who cares about optics?
Meanwhile, where’s Shelley at? Will he be writing his letter of resignation before or after DCF finally exonerates the coach? Because obviously he cannot stay on board. The letter, the lies, the failed investigation, all the blogs on Turtleboy. If you oversee all of that then you must go. Plus, his ability to fairly assess any coach moving forward will be forever compromised. It is not the job of the superintendent to meddle in coaching decisions. But what made his actions more egregious were his personal connections to this particular coach.
Resign now Shelley, or we’re gonna be forced to do it the hard way. You don’t want that. For once in your pathetic existence, just be a man.
