MLB Ump Suspended for One Game

MLB Umpire Brian Runge was suspended for one game after bumping Mets manager Jerry Manuel during a game last week. Carlos Beltran and Manuel were both fined for their involvement. While the umpire is supposed to be treated with respect and has the last word in any dispute, that doesn't entitle him to respond in a physical manner with anyone else on the field. Does anyone disagree out there?
