The Quad City Times reports that Steamwheelers head coach Seth Ponder was under the impression he was suspended for the remainder of the AF2 season after tripping a player on the field this weekend. The league president is not taking the paddle out until today though.
What he did was stick out his right leg and trip former Steamwheelers player Reggie Perkins after Perkins had returned a 10-yard interception for a Mahoning Valley touchdown and was running down the sidelines, behind Ponder, slapping high fives with fans.
At the 1:32 mark you can see the replay where Ponder trips Perkins. I have to say I cracked up when I watched this. Ponder had said he was defending himself. He clearly extends BACK behind him to trip Perkins.
