Kevin Greene should be suspended

I saw that ugly shoving match between Kevin Greene and whoever that
other person was (I think an assistant coach). The TV commentators said
he should be suspended for that and I agree.  Does anyone know what the
fight was about?

*************** Begin Associated Press text ***************

Greene, tied for second in the league in sacks and one of the best
pass rushers in NFL history, attacked assistant coach Kevin Steele on
the sideline in the first half of the Carolina Panthers' 28-25 loss to
the Washington Redskins.

<snip>

The Panthers had just given up their third touchdown early in the
second quarter and trailed 21-3 against Washington when Capers and
Steele began to address the defense on the bench.

When Steele, a slender marathon runner, waved an arm near Greene, the
6-foot-3, 247-outside linebacker suddenly jumped up, grabbed Steele's
jacket with two hands, starting yelling and pushed him backward about
10 feet. The two had to be separated by players and coaches.

************************ End AP text **************************

Comments by presumably white Panther fans sound remarkably like what
blacks were saying about Spree:

"Let's not hang Greene out to dry yet.  If the Buddy Ryan - Kevin
Gilbride incident showed us anything, it's that coaches can get out of
line too.  I'll wait to hear what was said before I pass judgement
about whether Greene should be fined or suspended."

"I'm not so sure that it wasn't provoked."

"I think if it was that important, he shouldn't have been in the rest
of the game, and probably should not be suspended.  By not taking
immediate action when the problem was known, I think they've wasted
any opportunity to do anything worthwhile about it.  BTW, can anyone
give me a good reason why we stopped blitzing in the 3rd quarter?"

I think he should be kicked out of the NFL myself....
