Good for the coaches. Not just gonna take it from the Man. Too often folks we are supposed to trust abuse their power and just get away with bs. Not sure I'd have the gonads to go up against an entire city or the state police. Something funky definitely happened here and I hope everyone that tried to use their position to further lies have to suffer consequences.

I caught Mike sleeping in his squad car, that's why they have cameras inside now. He's a cancer! Daddy Stover, are you going to save him? He can't forge his time cards now!

The ONLY reason the illustrious coach did NOT go to trial was that one of the boys recanted on his statement- These kids went through such a traumatic experience, even if it may have been exaggerated, they're KIDS- both the ones who were "abused" or merely threatened and bullied, and the "perpetrators" or bullies- THEY were not in charge, and a young teen-ager feeling threatened and unprotected does not need the coach,the supposed "adult" saying that essentially, it's all about him, and HE's suffered SOOO much- we have a few young men who are psychologically damaged FOR LIFE here- and HE's worried that the police might have erred on the side of protecting our kids?? That "coach" needs to get over himself, and be glad he's not up on more charges for being too self centered to EVER coach again. The focus should be on the kids he was BASHING in the media- no wonder the kid recanted- who needs it? A year or two is a LIFETIME when you're a High School student, and he wanted to just forget it. I've seen rape victims do the same against persons of power and influence. They get away with it because of the intimidation and shame they feel; their vicyims are impacted for life.
Mr. Baia is out to find anyone he can bully, and sees this as his cash cow- the feeling of entitlement this man displays is over the top! Get back to work! and if any parents in Wilson have half a brain, you'll keep your kids away from this arrogant, self serving egomaniac who will throw you and your child under the bus with the rest of the kids he's hired to help should you ever dare to question or disagree with him!

Fools! Can't you see what is going on here. This guy Stover, who is just a regular Joe, went to the DA and LIED...four months later when the case was falling apart because of a personal vandetta that he had, and started his statement out that he was a cop, which makes him an agent of the city, not a regular Joe. This guy is dirty and has a file 3 inches thick to prove it, FOIL his employee records and find out for yourself. Not to mention all of the other people that tried to frame the coach, including the kids that LIED when their parents told them to. If those kids are damaged for life as you say, perhaps you should be blaming their parents, the dirty cops and the ADA with an agenda instead of facts.

He is back to work teaching and COACHING and doing a stand up job. That's gotta really piss you off and I love it. He has done amazing things for Wilson and its soccer program and no bs that you spew here will ever change that.

Get your facts straight. This lawsuit will be the coach's avenue to once and for all clear the air and hold people accountable, including cowards that have posted lies like you on this blog.

And a little off topic...how dare you insult those that have been raped by using the term rape in your response. MEDICAL REPORTS SHOWED NO INJURIES!!

The only kid in this whole thing that can claim "psychological damage," is the one who was coined the "whistle blower" on ESPN (by dad) only to find out his father killed someone 20 years ago, mother pops pills, and then his father bullied the coach a month ago at his soccer practice.

So the kid that took the plea bargain... He's in on it too?

What about the cop's girlfriend? What's her motivation? Just a pile on? Or did she just jump in and join the "conspiracy" for kicks? Her kid made up the sexual abuse for publicity?

Hmmm... What else? Oh yeah! Obviously you have already obtained his employee records. So fill us in on the details! Just give us the top 5 out of your juicy little 3" stack!

This little harmless "exaggeration" as you call it has cost 7 kids their lives as they knew it. Let's not forget to mention the "trauma" the other kids had to go through during the relentless and multiple interrogations the NYSP held to TRY to get something, anything, to exagerate even further, and most importantly, the tarnishing of two very well deserved respected reputations and put a blemish on an amazing community and school district.
The exaggerations were lies and they should be held accountable.
We all know the truth and soon you will too.

The two teachers and the students all should have been charged with the assualts. The teacher Mr Biaia was an abusive person he slammed my cousin a few times into the walls and i witnessed that.And now all them are living normal lives while the children that were victimized have to go to school and see the people whom have inflicted the pain on them so personally everyone on here doesnt know shit about wilson until you live their n let them supposedly wrongfully accused. they all knew very well what they were doiong and should have to pay for their actions and not be allowred to be around young children regardless they all should be in JAIL ROTTING n I hope the people whom had a part in it have that happen to them and If my child was a victim of that i would be very pissed that they all got absolutely NO PUNISHMENT FOR COMITTING A CRIME

Wow. I couldn't follow any of that. No way could you have gone to Wilson. No student could ever get out of that school with your sentence structure and spelling. I feel very sorry for you.

Boo freaking hoo. You have no idea what you are talking about. The judicial system pretty much deemed there were no victims so your statement is ridiculous. And even though there WAS NO CRIME, the kids that were accused and the coaches that were accused have very different lives whether you want to believe that or not.
Oh, and Mike Stover's girlfriend Debbie Diez's son was sooooo traumatized that he is now playing Varsity soccer for the very same coach he was traumatized by. PLEASE! Give us all a break. If any of the "bus incident" was true then she should be charged with endangering the welfare of her own child for allowing him to play under his supervision. And the one kid who was supposed to have been the "victim" that got treated the worst...he goes to another school, but is at all of the football games and is ALWAYS on school grounds. Yeah-he is traumatized, sure!
It was all a big fat waste of time and money because as someone up above said an "exaggeration". Shame! Shame on those kids for letting the lie go when they knew it was a lie and shame on their parents for perpetuating it, and shame on the police and DA for trying to make something out of nothing.
And just to ruffle your feathers a little more...both coaches are back to teaching and coaching and are doing a phenomenal job at both! Just look at their records so far - Wilson is lucky to have them!!!

They do go to another school to fluff up their lawsuits against the school district. I think their civil attys will be pretty pissed when they see all of the footage of these kids playing tennis and hanging out at football and soccer games and chillin with their peeps happy as kittens - all while they are so traumatized they need to go to another school. SICK!

Hope your cousin will testify to what you just said because this is slander if he won't! I doubt it really happened...so...I have very reasonable rates and I represent liars all the time, can probably settle this for under $10grand. Let me know if you need some help.
