The Ravenna Youth Football Program has been run by Tom Brode since February 2007. Initially Mr. Brode appeared to be doing the right things for the program (ordering new uniforms, equipment and changing the name from Ravenna Rams to Ravenna Ravens...etc). Since then Mr. Brode has done very little for the Program. In fact parents have requested budget reports for the last few years and Mr. Brode has NEVER provided the parents with any such thing. His only defense is to blame past parents and or friends whom he entrusted as part of the RYF board.
Mr. Brode's only source of income is an EBay business and local store in Kent, neither of these businesses are listed with the IRS. Mr. Brode has also managed to run up thousands of dollars in debt for the RYF program which he again blames on former parents and board members. As parents we must hold him responsible for the debts owed by the program.
Tom Brode also has used $5000.00 of the Ravenna Youth Football fundraising money to fund a BET on the Super bowl (2/2011). Last year he used the RYF sign up money to send his child to a baseball tournament in Cooperstown, New York (7/2012). Mr. Brode now operates a business at the Summit Mall.
Tom Brode is no longer the Ravenna Youth Football Director thanks to Coach Lunardi!! Thanks Coach Jim Lunardi for doing what is best for Ravenna Football!!!
OR SO WE THOUGHT. COACH LUNARDI HAS FALLEN FOR THE FUNERAL DIRECTOR'S DONATIONS AND WILL ALLOW MR. FUNERAL DIRECTOR TO COACH THE YOUTH OF RAVENNA AS PART OF HIS STAFF. CONGRATS COACH. YOU WILL SOON BE INTRODUCED TO THE DRUNKEN IDIOT KNOWN IN RAVENNA AS THE "APOLOGIST" AFTER A LONG NIGHT OF DRINKING, RACIST REMARKS, AND CHILDISH NAME CALLING. (COMING TO A SIDELINE NEAR YOU). FANS OF RAVENNA PLEASE BE PATIENT AND KEEP IN MIND IT'S THE "ALCOHOL" THAT MAKES THE FUNERAL DIRECTOR ACT SO FOOLISH. GREAT JOB COACH LUNARDI!
