Parents in Andover revolted last night at the School Committee meeting after our recent blogs exposing their corrupt SC members, who are covering for the corrupt superintendent they hired, who is getting revenge on a great hockey coach during the middle of the season by having him investigated by DCF for things that he clearly did not do.

Read all about it here if you need to catch up.

School Committee Chairwoman slimy Susan McCready had previously told parents that they would not be allowed to speak on this matter, which directly impacts their children. But they weren’t trying to hear any of that jive:

Tuesday night, one after another, parents, many of them standing because there weren’t enough seats to accommodate the crowd, asked the School Committee questions and made comments about the situation. Initially, Chairwoman Susan McCready said she wouldn’t allow any comments from parents. 

But she was shouted down and so she relented, allowing many to speak up. 

Dan Gillette said Berman’s letter was the tip of the iceberg, and that parents were ruining the athletic experience for many coaches and students in Andover.

“I’d like to encourage you all as you do this to take a holistic approach and find out how things are connected,” he said. “A lot of parents are sabotaging our coaches and our teams and therefore affecting the welfare of our students and student-athletes.”

Bob Pokress of 3 Cherrywood Circle asked if the coaches would receive an apology if found innocent.

“If the report comes back, whether it is DCF or the independent one indicating that the coaches did nothing wrong, will the principal, superintendent, and the School Committee issue a public apology for defaming his character?” Pokress asked. “He has been living through this accusation.”

“We didn’t make the call to DCF,” McCready said. It has been alleged that a parent of a junior varsity player made the call about abuse.

Yea guys, she didn’t make the call to DCF. She’s just actively supporting the superintendent who she knows full well is trying to get revenge on a coach who benched his son Dale for being a bad hockey player. 

An elected official got up to ask them the most important question – why aren’t you investigating the guy who you hired to run the schools, and whose performance it is your duty to evaluate?

Selectman Bob Landry said the issue at-hand wasn’t about the coaches, but was about Berman’s potentially unethical behavior. 

“It is remarkable to me as a School Committee that you are ignoring the elephant in the room,” he said. “You have evidence now that the superintendent of schools wrote a six-page memo to two subordinates encouraging them to terminate the Andover High School hockey coach in clear retaliation for how he felt his own son had been treated. How that doesn’t warrant an investigation by you immediately is beyond me.”

Landry was met with applause.

School Committee member Shannon Scully shot back at Landry, accusing him of grandstanding for the crowd.

“We can’t entertain personnel matters in open meeting,” she said. “This will be dealt with in executive session. If you don’t mind getting off of your soap box that would be fantastic.”

McCready agreed. “You need to get off your soap box and stop politicizing this,” she said.

Politicizing this? Hey morons, this isn’t about politics. It’s about kids playing hockey. They don’t have their coaches. Their season was going pretty well before you adults screwed it all up by playing these games with their coaches. 

One parent questioned why the district didn’t just bring the coaches back. 

“We don’t have the authority to do that,” McCready replied. “That’s a personnel issue and we have no legal authority to do that.”

OK, you don’t have the authority to do anything with the coach. But ya know who you DO have the authority to investigate? The superintendent. So why aren’t you doing your job?

It was also revealed that kids on the team are being dragged into this to be questioned by DCF officials:

A number of people were concerned that this additional investigation would subject their children to more interviews. As part of the DCF investigation, some 45 people were interviewed, including every member of the varsity and junior varsity hockey teams as well as the coaches.

Keep in mind that while these 45 children were being dragged away from being normal high school kids, a 5 and 8 year old were being hacked to death by their mother in Brockton as part of a ritual. DCF has plenty of time to interview 45 people about how long they went without eating a tunafish sandwich, but they don’t have time to ensure the welfare of two innocent children. Must be some of that white privilege they keep talking about. 

Oh, and the new “unbiased” company they hired to investigate this sordid affair – they don’t sound too unbiased to me:

The School Committee voted 4-1 in favor of spending $2,500 to allow the investigation to begin. School Committee member Ted Teichert voted against the measure after raising concerns about the firm, which is based out of Arlington and headed by Police Chief Frederick Ryan. Town Manager Andrew Flanagan formerly worked in Arlington and Teichert, as well as others at the meeting, was concerned about a perception of bias that connection may create. 

One parent was aghast that the connection between Flanagan and Ryan wasn’t being taken more seriously.

“The whole issue that they brought up about the fact that this investigator is from Arlington and our town manager worked in Arlington, I’m just shocked why none of you question that,” said Regina Kelly of 4 Bateson Drive. “Why didn’t you choose someone else?”

At least one person on the School Committee (Ted Teichert) can see his head from his ass. 

I really can’t wait until this witch hunt is over and Turtleboy is proven to once again be right. By that time the season will probably be over, and it looks like the plan is to drag this thing out so the coach can’t get back on the ice until next year. But hopefully we will win this battle on March 27 if someone in Andover takes out papers to challenge slimy Susan McReady in her bid for reelection:

Looks like her selling point is, “vote for me because I’m a woman”:

We have no connection to the town of Andover. I’ve driven through it several times. Lovely place. But we have no biases about this whatsoever. We just see a bunch of selfish adults screwing over a bunch of good kids and their hard working coach, and we can’t be having that. Whoever runs against this woman has our full support. Once she’s replaced then the discussion can begin to fire Shelley Berman and restore normalcy to this school district.

    To anyone reading this website, you need to realize that it was more than likely just another one created by Landry and his good (lackey) buddy Pokress. They always hide behind these types of websites and attach certain individuals. Ask yourself, why are these two always the ones quoted? Ask yourself why the need to personally attack McCready? Oh wait McCready was the one behind Pokress not getting on the school committee? By the way, I am not for McCready because Berman should never have been hired. TOWN OF ANDOVER Constituents, wake up these two men are vile nasty people who have too much time on their hands. I write this because I cannot stand hypocrites and they do not pass any smell test.

    Susie and I go way back. She likes to play a game called A six pack of Slitz. We lay out some pillows, she then gets on her head and balances her legs up in the air. She then careefully lowers her legs, while naked of course, with her Muffin and Rim there to see. I bend over, I give it a little kissy kiss, put in some tongue punts, get both that cheddar and pig knuckle fluffy and wet. SHe will give Mr. Bunny a kiss or two too while she is dowwn there. When we have had enough of that Nineplay, I then put two fingers in her muffin, and my thumb in her pooper and lift her as high as a can “like a six pack of slitz!” It’s a brilliant game that brings us together almost every day of the week, it builds trust, admiration, and calluses. It is a very fun exercise though. Ever so often I will pull out a good size Hershey bar our of Susie’s butter burp. We will break’r in 1/2 and mutually smear it all over each other. We will then throw on some old “Germs” LPs and give each other golden showers until cleansed while head banging like a couple fucked up . Then, we start all over the next day. We like to also play Darby Crash Sacks Casey Cola Hopkins, but that’s a game unto itself. That invovles a lot more poop and popcorn. Oh the humanity.

    Shelly Berman? Isn’t he a closet transvesitite fag? Isn’t he the guy offering to suck cocks at toilets on the Pike? That’s what I heard anyways…

    Wonder if the dad who called showed up to that meeting, or Shelly himself? Glad the parents are sticking up for the coach. He needs to be reinstated with back pay asap, preferably from Shelly’s wallet.

    Susan McGreedy, obese Ginger woman your Honor, no further questions.

    The Cock Sucker in Chief Obama pulled the same shit, closing WWII memorials on Memorial day. Veterans and their supporters ignored that twerp president and went in anyways.

    Omaha Beach, Iwo Jima, West Berlin, Inchon, Khe Sahn, Grenada and Fallujah were also closed.

    Fuck these Tin-Horn scam artists, they work for you! They have to listen to you!

    This fat cunt tried to not allow parents speak at a public meeting? What kind of power trip are you on? Because you saw how many people were there, knew why they were there and realized it would could be a while before she’s sitting at home stuffing her face.

    Political hack cunt.

    You had me until the Jewish comment. It’s more about entitled narcissists and less about religious affiliation.

    Controlling dads, wimpy people, and self-righteous idiots caused this. And a good coach suffers as a result.

    Fire them all and start over.

    This is like Jefferson County Public Schools (Kentucky) redux. He got ousted from there, too. Then ousted from Eugene School District in Oregon 4 years later for pulling exactly the same kind of crap!

    Seriously, anyone in Andover who wants to get rid of this guy, check out Page One Kentucky (dot com) and this article from 5/2015:

    What a festering shitheap this whole sordid affair is. This is the worst kind of small town politics, featuring inept and clueless elected officials, vindictive megalomaniacs, ass-kissing sycophants, and cover-up after cover-up.

    While this bullshit sucks for the affected coach, the student-athletes are the ones who are really getting the shaft.

    The people who are responsible for this debacle, I mean the ones TRULY responsible; not the scapegoated coach, need to swing for this. They should all be unemployed at the conclusion of this shitstorm.

    • What a joke
      February 8, 2018 at 3:39 pm

      And these megalomaniacs aren’t even powerful people. They’re the fucking school committee for a small school district.

      GREAT POWER MY ASS!

    Sheldon Berman’s is the superintendent. His son gets benched for being a lousy hockey player.
    DCF gets called with allegation of abuse by the coach permanently tarnishing his reputation, Berman hides behind minions and abuses power while screwing up the hockey season, Berman falsely says he’s a great athlete when he sucks at sports.

    Can this get any more Jewish?
