Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall came out and blamed the officials for his outburst, which ended up getting him ejected from last week’s game against the Steelers.
“From that particular camera angle you can’t see what that ref’s saying to me,” Hall told LaVar and Dukes on 106.7 The Fan in D.C., via The Washington Post. “So it looks like I’m just out there giving him a piece of my mind and he’s smiling and walks away. And that’s not the case at all. He’s dishing it out just as much as I’m dishing it out.”
Hall would like to sit down and explain himself to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell before he’s potentially suspended.
“That’s the point of view that I’m trying to get out and we’re trying to get out, my team of guys,” Hall said. “That’s why we want to sit down with the commissioner. … We want to tell our side of the story, just like them. It shouldn’t be a situation where he’s saying I said one thing, I’m telling you I said this and it’s he said, she said. I’m not a criminal. I’ve never been in trouble with the law. I’m a great guy. Like I said, off the field I’m a different person, you know what I mean, than I am on the field. … We’re just trying to get every point of view, make sure we get as much proof as possible that happened in that situation and bring it to the forefront so we can come up with the right solution handed down to both sides.”
It’s sad that Hall isn’t willing to see that he’s the only one that is responsible for his foolish actions. The NFL officials didn’t make him curse them out. Grow up DeAngelo.
