Wuss Nation: Football score prompts bullying claim

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-...core-in-texas/
Quote:
PARKER COUNTY, Texas There was little chance of defeat when Aledo's undefeated Bearcats faced Fort Worth's Western Hills on the football field Friday.

The final score, 91-0, though, led one parent to file an official complaint of bullying against the entire coaching staff, reports CBSDFW.com.

Aledo ISD administrators say the complaint suggests the coaches should have told players to take it easy on the competition.

"I would never ask our kids not to play hard," said Aledo football coach Tim Buchanan. "I would never tell them, 'Go out and let them score.' That's not what you want to teach kids."

Buchanan said by halftime, when his team was up 56 points, he began actively trying to keep the score down, subbing in backup players, letting the clock run continuously, and instructing players to make fair catch calls.

"You don't want to embarrass... I've been on the other side of those scores. In 2011, Lake Travis scored 62 points on us. That doesn't feel good. It doesn't make the kids feel good," said Buchanan.

As for the bullying allegations, Aledo Superintendent Derek Citty said the district is following the same procedure it does with all bullying complaints. "We have to do an investigation and make sure there's no legitimacy to it."

The superintendent said, however, he's confident his coaches acted appropriately... something the football staff has asserted all along. "There was nothing unfair about it [the score] other than the fact that our players were better than their players," Buchanan said.

CBS 11 calls made to the Western Hills coaching staff were not returned.

Aledo ISD administrators are hopeful the University Interscholastic League (UIL) will place them in a different district next year, matching them against tougher competition.
Some facts about the game:

1. Starters pulled after first quarter
2. 2nd string pulled after halftime
3. Clock allowed to run continuously after 3rd quarter (out of bounds, dropped pass, etc.)
4. Second half was 3rd and 4th stringers

Honestly, are we going to claim bullying everytime someone's kid doesn't get a medal now? Those kids on the 3rd and 4th string never get to play regularly, should we tell them not to try in their one chance to get some serious playing time?



The complaining parent should get aids and die

In HS lacrosse whenever we had a 20 goal lead, we would just run our plays and stuff without shooting. I'll bet that was more painful to our opponents than if we ran the score up.

It was just one butthurt parent. I think it's irresponsible to turn this into a news story, personally.

What if they just played without the ball, so that everyone felt like a winner? Thats a real thing, right?

Where there's a reader hungry for sensationalism, there's an eager pen with a "journalist" attached to it wanting to make a name for themselves.

you can blame the media for that, and anyone else who spreads this pathetic, pitiful story.

its a shame in scenarios like this, reporters don't tell this guy to fk off and stop being a *******... rather, they'll make a sob story about it, and here we are, reading what losers are really out there

It is in bad taste to run up the score that high, but bullying is a very personal thing. That is not bullying.

You're injecting your preconceived notions into the story.

Reread it with the mindset that the author finds the accusation ridiculous and is writing the article with the intention of letting the public know that the ridiculous complaint has been made, and how ridiculous it is that now the district has to devote resources to investigating.

The reporter's personal belief may be that there was no bullying, and the point of the article is to show what the coaches and district have to put up with. There isn't anything in the story that indicates that the author agrees with the bullying accusation.
