Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.

Hockey fans have been anxious since "Free Agency Frenzy" began last month and player salaries are becoming more and more outrageous. With NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman confirming that the National Hockey League is prepared to lock out its players if the current collective bargaining agreement, or CBA, is not renewed by Sept. 15, the anxiety has reached shootout level.
Why? The players and the league cannot agree on a new labor contract. Meetings this week in Toronto left what officials describe as a "wide gap" between the sides, according to wire reports. The last CBA was put in place after the 2004-2005 lockout.
One of the biggest changes players seek is a broadening of the revenue-sharing system between teams.
If the NHL and the NHL Players Association do not reach agreement by the deadline, this will be the third lockout on Bettman’s watch.
Normally, hockey fans would love to see a good hat trick, but this is not one that would make them throw their hats onto the ice in celebration.
