To anyone commenting on this article, please keep comments clean, as our children may see our conversation. Let's act like adults, please, and keep profanity to yourself.
On Saturday, 9-29-12, the Cowboys were our guest at our home field at Spratling Middle School. We have no restrooms, field goal posts, stadium seating or fancy concession stand for our players and families. We have canopies, lawn chairs and porta-potties. Every team can see this as they approach our field. Mr. Lopez, the had coach of the Cowboys and president of our league, knew of our field conditions when he arrived, we spoke, shook hands and he escorted is team onto the field. As usual, the varsity game was an on-your-feet, heart racing till the last whistle, play by play kinda game. We hit zero on the time clock. Tied game! The coaches were given the option of over-time or a draw. Mr. Lopez stated "let the kids play", and confidently walked back to his side of the field. More screaming, whistles blowing and cheering... The Bees win in over-time against the "undefeated" Manteca Cowboys... 20-19! We were so excited!
After the game, Mr. Lopez wasn't so excited. He accused our VP of cursing his players and said he'd contest the game on that basis. Apparently, it didn't justify taking our win, so he then complained about us having no field goal posts. Ironically enough, none of his other squads, who had won their games that day, had any complaints. Obvious question being, had the varsity squad won, would Mr. Lopez still have complained and contested his teams' final score? I'm thinkin probably not.
Mr. Lopez, I'm speaking as a parent, not a board member. I am wondering, now, if your "perfect record" for so many years in a row is not so untainted. Have your varsity players "won" every game for six years because they possess leadership and teamwork characteristics, have they "won" because of an amazing coaching staff and hard work? Or have they "won", Mr. Lopez, because you've contested every loss with some rediculous excuse? I'd personally be embarassed and ashamed to brag to my friends about a "perfect season" when everyone else around me would know the truth.
ALL the children who played their hearts out that saturday are winners. The score was just the icing on the cake. Mr. Lopez, I'm asking you to justify your actions, considering no other team who's ever lost on our field in three seasons, has ever contested a game. Teaching kids that unsportsmanlike conduct is the appropriate way to handle things, is not what the Keyes Bees are about. We teach our kids that the efforts you make on the field, are what wins the game. A true team effort is when the players and coaches come together and give 100% at every game. We do that. Your players do that, Mr. Lopez. It's unfrtunate that you're not following suit.
Kudos to the parents who've taught their children right.

Don't worry beemom52! His perfect varsity team just experienced a butt whooping that he didn't expect, at the hands of The Weston Ranch Ravens varsity team. He can't argue this one! There were field goal posts and a legal field. Oh, but wait! He also decided to put his hands on a Weston Ranch varsity player after the game, that created a huge brawl in the Weston Ranch High School parking lot.
Mr. Lopez, you really need to re-evaluate your position as a coach and as a so called "President". Parents, players and other coaches from many other youth football organizations are starting to see through the smoke screen that you have created and its really unfortunate that the "good people" of the cowboy organization have deal with your adolescent decisions and the aftermath of those decisions. Hopefully your able to listen to that voice that is telling you that you crossed the line on Saturday night and that you offer up a apology to The Weston Ranch Raven organization and to The Manteca Cowboy Organization for your actions that night.
Sorry beemom52. I got off track there for a minute. Anyway, I have no problem with your field. We'll play there anytime!

Officer Dominguez.

Mr. Lopez is currently a coach at East Union High School. Unbelievable. This guy has always cheated. He uses illegal players (over age) in youth football, and has been kicked out of a league he helped build (NYFL). I know the Ravens may not be the best organization around, but compared to this guy, we are great. Youth football is about teaching. Don't try and live through the kids. Let them play and stop instilling these traits in the youth. Just walk away Mr. Lopez. Be a spectator, because you sure don't know how to teach or coach.

Madd mother-if you have a video of the man hitting that child you should submit it to the Stockton police. No child deserves for an adult (especially if the person who did this is not the child's parent) to hit him. There are laws to protect children. Just imagine if someone hit your child you would want who ever did it to be prosecuted. Madd mother do the right thing.

Madd mother, your talking like you have all this information and video of a grown man hitting a child. Imagine it being your child and someone had the proof to put the man away thathit your baby. I would also like to know about the little cheers girls? How were they harrassed by the coach? My grand baby is one of those little cheer girls. Would you want to jnow if it was your little girl? Second of all if you did not want to get involved you shoukd have keeped all this to yourself. So, you made yourself involved. Do the right thing submit the taoe and let us know what was said or done to our precious angels.

The cheer incident was involving the Cowboys! She clearly said in her post she's not going back to the COWBOYS! Jay (Eddie's right hand man) was removed for asking the cheer girls for lap dances.

Eddie has always been a cheat! The day will come when no one will want to play in his league or invite them to play in theirs. The league has constitution and bylaws for a reason and he has clearly violated them by removing the Ravens. Eddie has a long history of cheating ask the DYFL where he was banned for LIFE! His team is sore losers ask the NYFL (a league he helped create) when he was removed for fighting the Jets and a coach brandishing a weapon (sound familiar Ravens). It's unfortunate that youth football has turned into a mockery where coaches and presidents CHEAT at all costs to say they're the best.

When a grown man is suppose to be trusted with someone elses children and then. Allows someone to abuse a kid. He needs to be man enough to turn in that person. Mr, Lopez teach the kids moral values it about winning somethings fair and square so that you will feel good about yourself. How can you sleep at night when you take away from the kids that you're suppose to be helping. And we wonder why so many of our kids are dying at a young age. With a leader like you. Who can turn out good. Do the right thing God is watching your ever move.

It's funny how people have so many versions of the way things go. The bottom line is that I do feel for the bees varsity the way everything went, but...charging the same amount to spectators for entry as those teams who usually pay for a regulation high school field is not fair either. That does not excuse the way the game was contested, but as far as I understand it the bees were forewarned.

Onto the Ravens..it is absolutely ridiculous to sit here and point fingers when the COWBOYS have video of what happened. Yes, we lost. Yes, some of your players were ejected the week before for fighting...so why did someone on your sideline (a mother or sister I'm assuming) feel it justified to stand there and repeatedly call our kids fucking losers over and over again while they were having there end of the game talk? Nobody in the Ravens organization stopped her, or even acted as if it was inappropriate. My guess is because they think that type of behavior is ok. It was only the beginning leading up to what happened at the end of the game. Eddie was trying to break up a possible fight between a cowboy & ravens player when another ravens man actually assaulted eddie...not the other way around. The cowboys people stated SEVERAL times ghruought this that they were just trying to leave, but no...everyone still had to push and shove. Two of our cheerleaders were assaulted by varsity players as well, and this is somehow turned on us?

I do feel for the smaller kids who were not involved, but I would never be willing to play the Ravens again and put my children in jeopardy.

It's pretty clear you don't actually belong to the Cowboys Organization, and that you are on here trying to stir the pot. The person in the white wind breaker was on the phone calling the police when the man from the Ravens approached him and told him he was going to f*** him up. If you are going to pose as someone from another team, at least make it sound believable. It's unfortunate things are the way they are, but it would be best if the teams just went their seperate ways.

This is not the first time the Ravens have been asked to leave a League. For the same behavior. Talking about cheaters they should take a look at themselves.

This is funny how people try and make cowboys look like bad guys... First off the bees were informed a week before that game was played that they needed to get a football field and that downy high school was available or the game would be a forfiet cuz the first time we played it was a good game and we wanted to play on a legit field so it was fair well your president went outta town that week and said were not getting another field were play at the middle school ... The field was only 40 yards wide .. Hmmm y is that? Lets see so u guys can have a chance of winning bye making the field small !! Second of all cowboys have never been caught cheating and never will cuz we don't cheat and we were never kicked outta any league ever... Coach Lopez has only had one undefeated season as a head coach and lost the Super Bowl that year so get your facts straight !! Next about the ravens they are a joke they been kicked outta two leagues for cheating and last year had to forfiet varsity season for cheating and still have James grey there helping out who is the one who cheated and there doing it again... And what a coincidence it is that the Weston ranch falcons get kicked outta a different league in the same week cuz of cheating and being ghetto but were the bad guys right? Get your facts straight before u accuse people of shit .. And if coach Lopez was all about cheating and bring dirty and money how come we have the most successful organization around this area and always have full squads at every level and come hella deep to every away game and spend money at other fields to help support and we still get bad mouthed and accused of shit.. Wouldn't we. E a run down broke ass team with minimal kids if this stuff was true? Every successful team has haters u guys enjoy your season were gonna continue to be successful and winners and teach these young kids the best we can and move on....
