Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall has been fined for an intense shouting match with an official that got Hall ejected from the Redskins’ loss to the Steelers last month.
The Washington Post reports that a fine of $30,000 has been decided on. That determination comes after a longer review process than the league usually goes through before meting out discipline for on-field infractions.
Hall got in the face of an official, screamed at him and wagged his finger because he didn’t like the fact that Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders hadn’t been flagged for a hit that Hall thought was a cheap shot. Hall was kicked out of the game after refusing to go back to his sideline when he was instructed to.
Hall claimed that the official in question was just as guilty as he was and that both of them crossed the line in their heated argument. The NFL has not said whether it found any wrongdoing by the official.
