Talking Points: Did 91-0 football win cross the line?




Lopsided wins are nothing new for Aledo (Texas) High School’s football team.

But a 91-0 win Friday prompted a parent from the losing team to file a bullying complaint with the school district against the coach.

The Fort Worth team has outscored their opponents by an average of 77 points per game. Coach Tim Buchanan told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram he feels badly about the lopsided point spread.

Maybe next time he should let his linemen run the ball, a plan used by La Center coach John Lambert in lopsided games.



People who tried to complain about noise from a San Francisco marathon got an earful of racy language instead.

When they called the city’s 311 hotline to complain about Sunday’s Nike marathon, they were incorrectly directed to a phone sex line.

City officials now say they were given the wrong number and are investigating how the mix-up occurred.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports people were complaining about noise from the marathon’s festivities that began around 5:30 a.m.

MLS president Mark Abbott said Monday that if the county commission approved the plan it would award the city an expansion franchise.

Orlando City Soccer owner Phil Rawlins says an agreement with MLS could be completed within weeks.
