Then you have to find new people who are will to run and serve on the board to replace these people everyone is unhappy with. Everyone who is pissed off needs to attend a general meeting, which is your right as a member. Oppose each member not wanted and then be prepared to step up to the plate and serve the members the right way.


It is not that simple. First of all, the current's mess will linger for quite sometime. Easy to destruct, and time consuming to resurrect. I dont think a new membership will be able to create a fast turnaround without significant good press and fresh ideas. The DOC at a club is evidently a powerful position. Do you really think a new board would be able to cancel Tim "Pizza Party" Graham without a significant financial cost, and that's assuming he will want to leave.

This situation is a mess for the players and parents. Best to vote with your feet.

Larry, what you say is true. But the way I see it from all the posts, many people from SB will complain and then do nothing about it, which is why this mess exists. So they either take the hard road, which is to fight and do something about the current board mess or they say screw this, I'm outta here. Sad, but maybe if enough people leave, this Graham character and his cohorts will have no club to run and just go away. Then the club might be able to rebuild. Who knows but a terribly sad situation at SB.

I dont think they know...There is too much BS coming from Graham and board for these guys to think straight. KK and Somma are gone. Poor Mark, his loyalty to SB could be his downfall should he decide to buy the crap he is being fed..

Will they be Surfing next year along with all of their players?

I think he stays out of loyalty to his older girls teams he has had for many years.

That might very well be a part, but he can take that team enmasse when he leaves and I'm assuming the team would remain that loyal to Mark.

The board knows this is a [****] and probably threw plenty of money at Nash to stay.

Who said Mark Nash is staying? Do you really think that after being the DOC he welcomes a demotion and the honor of being Tim "Pizza Party" Graham's bitch? Surely you jest!

Mark Nash still has a year on his contract. If Mark stays it would mean that (1) no one was interested in bringing him on to their club, and/or (2) they wouldn't meet his price.

By the way, asshole, he still has not made a decision. Yes, you are a SB asshole, and SB is the official home of assholes and underage pizza parties.

BOTN can now confirm that Mark Nash is going to stay at Stony Brook.

While, I don’t want to share anything that might be confidential, let me make it clear it is in Mark’s personal interest to stay there, and I don’t believe at all that he’s doing it for the club.

Well, Mark may be staying, but it is the opinion of BOTN that the players need to continue to consider other options because Mark is no longer in control and no longer the DOC.

Best guess is it is a family decision to stay on board. It takes a real man to swallow pride, and do what's right.

Hope he has a great next year, and then moves on to something where he doesn't need to swallow pride to do what he loves.

We have been told that Mark will stay at SB as the “head” of the girls program. While this makes me happy for his older girls, I had hoped he would coach my son for years to come. Who is going to coach my son? No clue. We have been told next to nothing. Which is why we are looking elsewhere. This whole situation seems like a disaster.

Guessing here, but perhaps he's staying because he's forced to honor his contract and if the board isn't letting him out of it, he doesn't have many choices unless he wants to pursue legal avenues to be released which could be lengthy and expensive.

You are either a newbie, or shilling for someone or something, or clueless. On the subject of the pizza parties, I have that info directly from LGN mteam parent(s).

On the subject of JR dating a player, I believe they are now cohabitating. In that allegation, I never alluded to or stated that the player was underage. JR did date a player, and to the best of my knowledge, she was over 18. Now, what didn't ask about regarding JR is why is he no longer a tenured high school reacher? HINT: if you do a search of the message board you see posts on all your JR concerns along with documentation.

Now, did I scatch that itch for you?

Larry, tried to search but is limited to 2 years. All it comes up is the refund letter and the PRSC purchase. Can you point me in the right direction or repost?

You are correct about the search only going back 2 years.

I looked into this and I have a letter dated 10/4/2012 from Seth A. Lipshie, Assistant Superindendent of the Miller Place School District stating:

Dear Mr. Miller,

We are in receipt of your letter. Please be advised that John R. Balzarini is no longer employed by the Miller Place Union Free School District as of September 16 , 2012.

Sincerely,
Seth A Lipshie


Following that letter BOTN did publish the letter and other documentation including a very candid post outlining my attempts to discuss this matter with the Smithtown SC president where I was unsuccessful.

I should point out that my issues with JR had to with his interactions with BOTN and the message board and were not related to his working with LIPS.

The posts are still on the message board but you will have to back to the posts from the Summer of 2012 and then hit a few pages forward and it will be there. I will also look and if I find it first I will post the link to the post(s).

This is my take as well. I gave up trying to fight the process, and took my kid somewhere, where they would be valued and enjoy soccer minus the drama.

I tried to get people who stated they were upset with the way things were working, to band together and affect change. They were all petrified to actually do so. In my opinion, the folks who agreed with me, who did nothing when the time came have nothing to complain about. They had a chance, and they were too scared to take it.
