A 91-0 victory by a high school football team can be called many things. But bullying?

In Texas, Aledo High beat Fort Worth Western Hills last week by that ridiculously lopsided score. According to this report from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the winning coach -- whose team is ranked No. 1 in its state classification -- did everything he could not to score in the second half. The losing coach agreed.

But a parent of a Western Hills player filed a bullying report with the school district. "By state law, Aledo and all school districts must provide a bullying report form on their website. Aledo’s principal has to investigate the allegations reported and prepare a written report of the investigation, determining whether bullying occurred," the newspaper wrote.

And, as you can imagine, it's opened up quite a conversation about how far the definition of bullying can go.
