Indoor football coach tackles player?

Over the years, we've seen some amazing things in Arena Football and its offshoot leagues.

Heck, we've seen a buffalo nearly trample a player -- and that happened right here in Phoenix.

But I don't think we've ever seen this. R.J. Rollins of the Omaha Beef in the Champions Professional Indoor Football League (the same team that offered Tim Tebow a job) scores on a rushing touchdown and in his celebration, flips the ball toward Lincoln Haymakers coach Dave Brumagen.

Brumagen didn't like that very much, and knocked Rollins to the ground, inciting an on-field melee.

The Lincoln coach has been suspended for the rest of the season and received a $500 fine -- which equates to $1.3 million in normal non-indoor-football dollars.

Oh, and by the way, Rollins' touchdown was the game-winner for the Beef in a 27-23 win. Maybe Lincoln should have used the coach on defense?
