DeAngelo Hall will be fined, not suspended, for incident with ref

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall won’t be suspended after he was ejected from Sunday’s game against the Steelers for screaming at an official.

The NFL has decided instead to fine Hall for his actions, the Washington Post reports. There’s no word yet on the amount of the fine, but Hall is also expected to be warned that further misconduct toward officials would result in a suspension.

Hall became enraged when Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders was not flagged for a hit that Hall viewed as a cheap shot. Hall stood in front of head linesman Dana McKenzie and appeared to be screaming profanity at him, while sticking his finger in McKenzie’s face. McKenzie and other officials told Hall to leave, but he initially refused and had to be pulled away.

Hall said this week that McKenzie was yelling at him, too, and that McKenzie was equally to blame. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he didn’t like the way Hall conducted himself during the incident, while Hall said he wanted to talk to Goodell about it. There’s no word yet on whether Goodell and Hall have spoken.

    The ref should be fined also, because he was yapping back at him just as badly, as two camera angles showed.

    And I hate DeAngelo Fall, but fair is fair.

    I watched the replay. Hall was as much or more to blame than then DB. Hall basically rushed the DB and the DB threw him to the ground. Hall was aggressive and pushing the DB. Hall makes it sound as there was a cheap shot by the DB. I encourage folks to go watch the replay. Not only is Hall a terrible DB, but he’s also delusional.

    And he probably will be toasted, not shredded, by Steve Smith.

    So wait……….. Hall was playing against a DB? I don’t get it. I was watching the play, and Hall was playing on the defensive side of the ball against a WR, but maybe this guy saw it differently?? ANyone else see it like this guy did?
    Hall is terrible. He is terrible in coverage, he is terrible in the locker room, he is a terrible leader, and mostly he is a terrible human. Listen/read his interviews. He only concentrates on Meangelo. I can not wait until this guy is out of DC. His contract could not be over sooner. I wish goodell had suspended him. Hall is awful.

    Hall was just venting his frustration!! He’s basically been destroyed by every receiver he has covered thus far…I think he would have been happier to be suspended this week then Steve smith roasting him on Sunday …..

    He’s so happy he can play Sunday and chase down receivers who just blew by him.

    @andylucksneck:

    I’m a Redskins fan and I completely agree with your assessment of Hall as a player. He used to be a decent corner, but age and probably scheme have made him highly suspect. That being said, everything else you said is incorrect. His teammates love him. The local media loves him. And he’s actually a good guy. I’ve run into him a couple times around town and he was always gracious and kind. Yes, he’s a bit of a hot head, and yes he talks a bit too much, but he’s not an “awful human.” You couldn’t possibly know that anyway.

    That being said, he must have made a pretty good case to Goodell to not get a suspension. Goodell made it pretty clear that he was leaning towards a suspension. Hall said other camera angles would show the referee being equally as disorderly, and I guess he was right.

    Big mistake by Goodell – he just gave DeAngelo the go ahead to yell at any ref he wants, as long as he ponies up the cash.

  14. Mr. Wright 212 says: Nov 2, 2012 3:36 PM

    First of all, it was a bad call. Sanders’ dirty hit was overlooked, but as usual, the Steelers don’t get called for it. Hall’s treatment of the ref is not really that defensible, but to overlook what Sanders did and the ref giving it back to Hall just as badly as Hall was giving it is a bit disingenuous.
