Turtleboy Investigates

Jason Smith Lies To Media, Says He Didn’t Know His Framingham Youth Football Coaches Were Racist Shitbags, Board Calls TB Clickbait, Media Steals Our Work


Bristol broke a really interesting story the other day on TB Daily News showing some pretty blatantly racist and troubling text messages between coaches in Framingham Youth Football. The really racist shit came from Coach Michael Todd.

The Metrowest Daily News and the Framingham Source both had knowledge of these texts and chose not to write about them. Now they’re passing it off as original reporting. Pathetic.

But an even bigger issue was that Bristol had receipts proving that the league President Jason Smith not only knew about the issue, but he did nothing to investigate it. And just like that, within 24 hours the league announced that three unnamed coaches had been fired. WCVB, and the rest of the media shamelessly took our work and passed it off as their own. Make no doubt about it – this story would not be out there if Bristol didn’t publish it first. These people are shameless thieves who don’t follow any journalistic practices, and then try to act like we’re the fake news.

But the problem is that Jason Smith still has his job, and he’s pretending like he gives a shit now that we blogged about it.

Three Framingham Youth Football coaches have been fired after the group’s Board of Directors found that coaches had exchanged racist text messages, President Jason Smith said Wednesday.

“All three coaches were dismissed from both their coaching and board positions once we received information about inappropriate texting,” said Smith in a brief interview on Wednesday. “Once we received all the information, we removed the coaches immediately and took them off the Board of Directors.”

This is an email from the coach who made the initial complaint on October 26 2018, in which he forwarded the text messages seen above to Jason Smith.

Here is Jason Smith acknowledging it on the same day.

Yet he did NOTHING about it. This is what’s commonly known as a “cover up.” Yet this LIAR, who once gave himself a MVP award, is saying he found out about it in the last 48 hours.

In a statement issued Wednesday, Smith said the organization learned about the “reprehensible and racially charged text messages between some of our coaches” over the last 48 hours and launched a “thorough investigation” that confirmed that the messages were real, MetroWest Daily News reported.

“The Board of Directors takes this matter very seriously, will continue to investigate, and will take any further actions necessary,” reads the statement.

Screenshots of text messages sent to the Daily News show several people exchanging racist messages in a group chat titled “Football Coaches.” In one message, a person encouraged violence and used a racist slur targeting black people.

You shameless, lying sack of shit.

Here’s you admitting you were aware of it OVER A YEAR AGO!!

You just got called out for it by Bristol in the last 48 hours. Yet the media is giving him a pass and crediting the Metro West Daily News of breaking this story? Fuck out of here.

This is Zane Razzaq, the reporter from the Metro West Daily News who is claiming credit for breaking this story, and is being linked by the other media outlets.

She’s a young, rabid SJW who simply doesn’t have it in her to admit that she got her news from Turtleboy, because then she’d be admitting that we are a legitimate source of news. When Gatehouse Media fires her a couple years from now because they’ve found a 22 year old who will do her job for cheaper, she’ll be the one crying about how unfair it is to be a journalist in America today. She can be respectfully reached out to at zrazzaq@wickedlocal.com or on Twitter at @ZaneRazz. This is theft, and these people need to be called out for it.

The other media outlet that ripped us off was the Framingham Source, owned by Susan Petroni, which had knowledge of these  messages and chose not to write about it.

Yet every time someone comments on their page about ripping off Turtleboy they get banned and accused of being Turtleboy.   

Whatever you do, DO NOT flood the Framingham Source’s Facebook page with links to this article, pointing out that she is a thief.

Oh, and the board hasn’t announced who any of those three coaches are, so you’ll just have to take their word for it that they dumped the racist guys.

Meanwhile, we were forwarded an email conversation between members of the board directors after our blog started making the news, and here’s what board member Brian Cullinan, an account executive at Enterprise, had to say.

“It appears to be some sort of clickbait tabloid.”

Oh yea, facts are clickbait now. Great way to ignore a problem in your ranks is by discrediting the media outlet that has broken more stories than any other media outlet in New England.

“I’d like to understand how credible TB Daily News is and as a source of information.”

Well Jason, just ask our good friends over at the Washington Post, who seem to think we’re pretty legitimate. Or maybe you prefer to hear the Boston Globe singing our praises instead. If you’re west of 495 there’s always Masslive too. Or just ask former State Police Colonel Richard McKeon, who no longer has a job because of our reporting, if he thinks we’re credible while he plays golf on his fat pension.

I’m going to rant about this tonight on the live show so make sure you’re tuning in at 9:30.

Also, fuck this lady too.

These people are so brainwashed and forced fed by the mainstream media it’s not even funny. They are literally a slave to corporate owned entities, and anyone who provides evidence and facts outside of those entities is not to be trusted.

I’m old school fired up right now and I’ll have a great rant tonight on the live show about it, so make sure you subscribe by clicking hereEnough is enough. You don’t get to pretend like you don’t know who we are anymore and what we do.

    So Finn is really an employee of TB? I notice he is always verklempt about the posts that are made. For him to accuse someone of posting from the same email, suggests that he can see the emails that the average poster cannot see. Hmmm…interesting.

      “So Finn is really an employee of TB?”

      Who said that? I certainly didn’t. You’re swimming in the wrong lake.

      “I notice he is always verklempt about the posts that are made.”

      I argue facts only. You seem to have your panties in a snit over spelling and not able to articulate an opinion of the story because of it.

      “For him to accuse someone of posting from the same email, suggests that he can see the emails that the average poster cannot see. Hmmm…interesting.”

      Because you leave obvious footprints (i.e. using the same email over and over – all over the place). I’m not average – and I’m definitely not interesting. However, I *can* see your other shit too. But, this isn’t the blog for it – or is it?

    Quit whining Bristol! If you want to work for one of the other media outlets- then go ahead. But wait, you do not have a journalism degree or a degree of any kind. I can read relatively the same article in The NY Times, NY Post, Washington Post, The Salem Evening News or the Marblehead Reporter on the same day or within hours. No one whines about being first! It’s really unbecoming behavior for you. I think TB news is entertaining, but it’s not the “go to” for local news!

      Sounding Childish/Quit Whining,

      You look very stupid when you try to post as 2 different people with the same email address. You don’t even *try* to change your post. FAIL.

      “No one whines about being first!”
      Actually, anyone that’s ever been plagiarized “whines” about it. Try doing that in an academic setting.

      “It’s really unbecoming behavior for you.”
      Suck a dick.

      “I think TB news is entertaining, but it’s not the “go to” for local news!”
      Why is that? Naughty language? I’m guessing you can’t answer that because you argue with emotions (facts don’t care…) only.

    Bristol, quit whining as it is unbecoming. If you want to work for one of those other media outlets, do so. It wait, I don’t think you have a journalism degree or a degree of any kind. TB has fun articles, but I don’t think it’s the “go to” media source for anyone wanting local news. I can read the same article in the NY Post, NY Times, Washington Post, and then again in the Salem Evening News or Marblehead Reporter. None of them are whining about being first!

        “I’d be happy if they spelled anything correctly and /or used proper grammar. The blog is fun, but a nightmare to get through for educated people.”

        Being grammatically correct does not make one “educated”. Any monkey can learn sentence structure, spelling, and punctuation.

        Put on your critical thinking cap — it might make your reading comprehension less “nightmarish”. If spelling mistakes are impeding your ability to interpret and reason — you are a moron.

    Framingham has youth teams that play in flag football leagues at Northborough Teamworks. They’re absolutely the worst when it comes to sportsmanship. The coaches and parents have been known to yell at refs. Last Sunday was the first week of the new indoor flag football season and the ref had to throw out one of the Framingham coaches. Get some class Framingham!

      I lived in Framingham when i was a kid for a year … 9 or 10 years old … I remember my teacher at Hemenway saying …Framingham is bigger than Marlboro but we are a town not a city … perhaps they feel repressed at their status? Also … played the Flyers in High School when i was at SJ in hockey … and i just remember saying everytime i hit a kid .. you’re a town not a city …. not sure it made sense to them.

    Youth football is such an ‘ugly’ sport due to the volunteer coaches and inner circle. Not from the town? Barely any playing time and always violating MPR. Then there are people that run these fake tryouts just for the cash when they already know whose on the team.

    Jason Smith is a piece shit. I’m a youth football official and a few years back I was doing a Framingham game where he was coach. After one of the plays one of his kids was slow to get up but seemed ok. He started to come running off the field but then went down to 1 knee. I guess he took a good shot In his head And wasn’t feeling well. I’m 30 yards away and it’s was a play up the middle without a big collision so I didn’t know what happened. Jason started yelling at me that the kid had a concussion. I still didn’t know who exactly who he was talking about because the kid seemed ok just a little hurt. Happens 100 times a game where someone gets up slow. Once I saw the kid go to 1 knee I blew the whistle and asked for the trainer. As Jason was walking out to tend to the kid he yells loud enough for me to hear when I’m above 40 feet away “you don’t care about him because his a person of color”. So this hypocritical asshole told me I don’t care about a kid being hurt Because he wasn’t white. I’ve officiated over 1000 games and that’s was by far the worst thing anyone has ever said to me. I was really worked up obviously and one of the other coaches came over to me and said “don’t worry about it he’s an assholel. This coach was black.

      I’ve been a resident of Framingham for the last 23 years and I also volunteer coaching basketball and the behavior of these so call football coaches is appalling. When your wrong your wrong! WTF is up with the “If those guys were Black comment”? Some folks will always defend, deflect and diminish the awful behavior of people, believe what you want to believe; don’t bring that energy around kids. If you are a racist asshole, coaching kids is not your calling. It’s not about you or your beliefs, it’s about teaching, mentoring and inspiring kids.

    If you look at the date of those emails they are marked 2018. I’ll give you all the credit for breaking the story, but if you want credibility you need to do more to write the story consistent with the facts you are presenting. You had the same issue with calling someone out for their military service until your riders corrected you that the convention was YYMMDD.
