Parents want to dictate who becomes the coach or the kids being big baby asses!!!!! Take your pick. Who cares who the coach is. If its fun and you like playing.....PLAY...youll will regret not playing down the road...believe me!!!

it is ashamed that the parents decide if their kids play or not because of the coach. i thought basketball is for the kids not the parents. let the kids have fun!!! go bobcats!!

It is definitely a shame what has happened to the Green basketballl program,but it all started a couple years ago when some parents wanted to stick their noses in because their kid wasn't chosen to play or be on the team and they couldn't accept that and ran off a coach that would have had this program back on its feet now and winning games..Green is a victim of itself and now we are paying for it...The former coach was ran off because he cut kids that had no chance to play and our current coach run of our best players and hes allowed to stay..Go figure..kinda back asswards if u ask me

Basketball is played with a ball and two goals. Put the ball in the hoop and raise your score by 1, 2, or sometimes 3 points.

one of the school board members was aloud to coach last year while having a son playing on the team. they decided he was not to be aloud to coach while being on the school board. so what do they do? they let him set behind the bench and coach anyway. the same thing went on during football from the press box. this same person is aloud to come to closed high school basketball practice that is closed to the public.if they would just make a set of rules that applied to everybody there would not be as many problems.this would work for the sports program to if every one was treated equally by the same set of rules.

Thats why Bobbie Dale Blanton shouldn't be allowed to coach ..He allows this to happen ..Its his program and I use that statement lightly..He needs to go...Joe Fraley should have had the job when Coach Kitchen was ran off,but Lewis couldn't tell him what to do either just like he couldn't sway Kitchen,but with this new board I believe they would back Fraley now.I think he would be interested in the job and he lives 100 yards away from the school.Hes a good guy and would be a good fit for Green and is knowledgable about the game and won't play favorites..

Fraley didn't do anything when he had them after kitchen. And it sounds like you want to dictate who the coach is. that is the pot calling the kettle black. Why must this start all over again. They have not even started the season yet. Bobby is doing a great job from what I have seen in the scrimmages. The two big boys are not playing but one is way over weight and out of shape and the other wanted to play and his dad will not let him so this tells me Bobby Couldn't have been that bad to play for. I think parents should leave him alone and let him coach. Now he has a boss (principal) that will back him see what he can do. Also Lewis is not coaching the team Bobby is.

I belive we saw what Bobby can do last year! He had the most talent in the SOC I. And what did he do with it.

Your definition of talent and mine are a little different The Eastern team that won the league last they were the best team in soc1 and as a sports nut I can tell you talent isn't everything you must have heart and attitude as well and that wasn't shown in last years team but by only a few players. Also you must have discipline. which was not allowed because of the parents.

the coach would let his favorites start the game until they got behind and then he would let the should be starters come in and bring them back and then he would let it happen again. you would think he would have learned by now who should be playing and who shouldn't.i guess the last board president was wright. he said within 2 years the present coach would destroy the program and i believe he was wright.

The year before last the team won pike 3 or 4 games. Last tear they went like 500. That's sounds like a pretty good turn around to me.

the year before last was a disaster and joe came in and did what he could do in a really bad situation. i think he would have been a better fit due to the fact that he had know ties with the parents or players. the kids that would be playing would have to earn their position instead of the coaches playing their favorites or the kids whose parents had taken the head coach to lunch and done other things for them. at practice now an ex school board member who wasn't aloud to help coach by the school board is still playing a big part in what is going on in our sports program. after being told by the board he was not alloud to help he still called the football games from the press box and is still a part of the basketball program being aloud to be in the gym during basketball practice and sitting behind the bench during games even though the practices are suppose to be closed. i guess that is only for certain people. i guess that kind of lets everone know who is running these programs. it is deffinitly not the school administers.

TO SHUT UP, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. LAST YEAR WAS ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS TO COME THROUGH GREEN IN MANY YEARS, IF BOBBY WOULD HAVE COACHED THE WAY HE CAN AND NOT LISTENED TO KEVIN LEWIS THEY WOULD HAVE WENT ALL THE WAY. KEVIN DONE EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO DESTROY THAT TEAM AND HE SUCCEDED, HE WANTED TO MAKE SURE BOBBY DID NOT BEAT HIS COACHING RECORD. AS FOR THE TWO BIG BOYS, THEY ARE TWO OF THE BEST KIDS YOU WILL EVER MEET AND IF YOU WERE TREATED THE WAY THEY WERE LAST YEAR I DOUBT YOU WOULD PLAY FOR BOBBY EITHER. SO DO NOT GET ON HERE BASHING THOSE BOYS UNLESS YOU KNOW THE WHOLE STORY, AND BEFORE YOU ASK, YES I KNOW THE WHOLE STORY BECAUSE I AM VERY CLOSE TO BOTH BOYS. GOODLUCK BOBCATS, I HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT SEASON.

i agree with you green. if they would have played the players based on there tallent instead of their parental involvement they would have won a lot more games.

Last 3 posts are correct. Lewis stuck his retarded ass in the picture to make sure his boy got to play. Kitchen knew his kid had no talent and refused to play him on the varsity and lew lost it. Then after he sucessfully ran Kitchen off he could do nothing until the end of the season. Fraley won 4 more games than he should have but Lew wanted to make sure his kid got to play, so he helped Bobby Dale, who worshiped Lew, in what questions would be asked in the interviews 2 years ago, knowing he could control Bobby. Lew had 2 buddy's on the board who would vote with him and they got Bobby the job. Lew's boy started the next year and set a record for turnovers and pitiful play but that's what daddy wanted. This year, with Lew's buddys gone from the board, they passed a resolution that a board member could not coach a team. Lewis resigned from the board and applied for an asst. coaches job. He was denied. However, somehow he still worked as an asst. on the FB team along with his oldest son(who didn't know shit about football)and controls practice on the basketball team with his oldest son as an assistant and his youngest son guaranteed a starting position on a 3 win team. Bobby Dale has NO business coaching a Varsity team and after this year will be left hanging by his 'nads cause Lewis will be done with him. Then maybe the BOE will right the terrible wrong that Lewis and his flunkies have caused in this town. I won't spend 1 dime watching athletics until this shitbag is sent packing.
