Bullying Charges Filed Against Texas High School Football Team For Winning 91-0…

The sissification of America continues.

Via Yahoo! News:

    Each week there are football blowouts across the nation. Rarely are they more one-sided than the 91-0 rout Aledo High (Aledo, Tex.) put on Western Hills High (Fort Worth, Tex.). Now, one parent has apparently been so concerned by the final scoreline that they took the extraordinary step of filing an official bullying report with the school district because of the thrashing.

    As reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and other Dallas-area outlets, the official bullying report was filed by a Western Hills parent on Saturday, hours after the final whistle ended the most one-sided game so far this year in the Lone Star state. Texas regulations require Aledo’s principal to launch a full investigation into the bullying allegation.

    The administration is then to produce a written report addressing the bullying complaint.

    If it was surprising that Aledo racked up 91 points on Friday, it was no shock that their win was a dominant one. The Bearcats are among the state’s most powerful squads year-in, year-out. Friday’s victory improved the team’s record to 7-0, with Aledo now averaging a whopping 69 points per game. They’ve outscored their district foes by an incredible 77 points-per-game.

A couple of important parts of this story that the writer didn't mention are that -
1) By the end of the 1st quarter, Aledo had taken out ALL of their starters.
 2) By the 3rd quarter, Aledo was playing their THIRD string guys.
 3) In the 3rd quarter, they agreed to a running clock system.
 4) The officials could have called the game early.

 What else could Aledo have done? I like the fact that they're a team who plays under good sportsmanship and doesn't trash talk at all. They should be commended for this, rather than accused of bullying.

The coach did what he could to help the other team score without having to just stand there. It was a humiliating defeat, and perhaps the losing coach might use the same tactics...discipline!
