Bullying by coaches, players needs to stop

What is going on in the world of sports, in particular football - college, high school, professional, NFL - a not-for-profit group. How low can you go?
Bullying is now the rage, and I'm not talking about scoring. Bullying is wrong. I sound like a liberal, but so be it.
You don't get the best out of anyone with threats, name calling, cussing or pushing at play or at work.
Back in the day, when I had PE class, not one female PE teacher ever pushed, name called, threatened or cussed any girl. She encouraged the girls to play at their best and helped those who needed guidance in the sport.
I think I have a solution to the problem of bullying in sports, school and work. All bullies, be they players, coaches, owners, schoolgirls and boys, bosses and employees, all would be sent to military boot camp and then shipped off to the Middle East so that our military people could come home.
It would be a great thing to see all those real hip, tough, pushy people break down to a puddle of mush and tears.
So, what about it tough guys and gals?
