Perhaps the reason the league hasn’t issued a ruling on what kind of punishment Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall will receive for last week’s tirade is because they’re trying to determine how much fault is his.
According to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the NFL is looking into the role of the official in the situation.
Hall blew up at head linesman Dana McKenzie, after an altercation with Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders last week. Hall said during a radio interview with 106.7 The Fan Tuesday that McKenzie “was equally at fault” and “dishing it out just as much as I’m dishing it out.”
While officials don’t have free rein to say what they please to players, Hall showed a lack of control, and will still be fined heavily even though he won’t be suspended.
