Yes I agree, I have sit at nearly every game for years, and I have watched this coach yell and scream at every boy on the floor except Ravye, not once did I see him walk off the floor with his head down due to coach screaming and yelling his name?? That is how I learned some of their names, no joke!!!! Oh well it is over and I for one am so looking for a good season with a different style of coaching and no favorites!!!!!

Plz are you kidding me? the "golden boy" you bet your A** Rayve is very dedicated and played his heart out thats why coach Kennedy pushed him to be a better player and person. Just maybe Rayve could take the constructive criticism and you SON and his friends couldn't.It's called TUFF LOVE! VERY involved in the program mean your a athletic booster or a staff member? We will agree on 1 thing Rayve will be MISSED but you truly are CLUELESS if you think Coach Kennedy won't.

Nearly every game for years and you didn't even know the names of the kids you were watching play?are you REALLY a Ripley Fan? Go to the school better yet go to Coach Kennedy and ask him for every game tape from Rayve's Soph. year thru his SR. season and I think you will see you just might be CLUELESS as well! You are right about 1 thing Coach Kennedy's era is over and im sure the new coach will have a different style of play but 1 thing will always be a constant PARENTS who think there kids are better then they really are will always be a Coaches PAIN in the A**!

Too funny! it's not about kids that think they are better than they are, nor is it about parents being "pains in the ass!" if THAT was all it was then we wouldn't be having this conversation. He finally crossed the line one too many times. PERIOD! Many....not all....MANY of us are breathing a huge sigh of relief.
"Bluejay fan 4life" I hope you will be able to handle the positive atmosphere;)

He didn't say "kids that think they are better than they are". He said "parents who think their kids are better than they really are". They're the pains in the ass, not the kids! To my knowledge, he crossed no line. Maybe he just got fed up with dealing with people like some of the ones on this site. I guess it all depends on who gets the position as to whether there will be a "positive" atmosphere. One thing is for sure, it will only be positive for as long as it takes for people like you to start criticizing and finding fault again!

Lol. Thats funny we have so many dedicated fans who obviously know nothing about what went on in our huddles, in the locker room, or in practice to know who got ripped when and how they felt or any of that because i know i got ripped alot and i deserved it when i did i just learned to deal with it and take what he says not how he says it and build on it to get better.. This average player made all-league his jr. and sr. year and it wasnt from being good its from playing smart and taking what my coaches taught me and did it while i was playing! I love how people say their dedicated fans but i have one question who considers you a dedicated BLUEJAY fan you, the people around you, or the people that you are supposed to be there to support? That is whats wrong with ripley now there are to many parents that think they can do better than the coach..If that was true why dont you apply for the job since it is open!! And coach crossed no lines he just takes up for his players when other people (in the stands) and no i dont consider these people fans try to make them feel like they dont deserve what they have earned or worked hard to get. I love all my teammates and coaches they have taught us all alot and thats all that matters! No one in the stands has did anywhere as near as much for all of us players as coach did

Maybe you should apply! See we haven't even hired a new coach and people are already passing judgement on a guy who has dedicated his life on teaching the youth in our community not only in basketball but soocer as well. Happen to think Marty would be a good choice but would be more interested in who your choice would be?

Care to share who the members of this club might be? Let's see Varsity Boys 19-3 and Varsity Girls 16-6 sounds like a good club to be a member of don't ya think?

You for real? you truly believe Marty only applied for the job to keep Coach Thompson from getting it? and you say Ravye hasnt lived long enough to know what he's talking about! with statements like that one has to wonder how long you been around?
