The fashion police quite literally came after Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall on Sunday.
While speaking with reporters after the Redskins’ 24-14 win in Oakland, Hall was accosted by an NFL uniform inspector and told that he would be fined if he did not end the interview immediately.
The corner’s crime, according to multiple reports compiled by The Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg, was wearing a black shirt with a small Lacoste logo on it.
Here’s how the altercation transpired, according to a recording obtained by Steinberg:
“Now, I don’t want to fine you. But I could,” the inspector said, according to a recording of the conversation.
“For what?” Hall said.
“That,” the inspector said, pointing to the logo.
“For a T-shirt?” Hall asked. “I wore this to the game! This isn’t the podium. What am I supposed to do?”
“You don’t have to do the interview,” the inspector said.
“Okay, I’m not doing it,” Hall said. “Hey, y’all write about this,” he said to the press. “Wr

Week 4 of the NFL season has come to a conclusion and Washington Redskins have firmly established themselves as one the NFL’s cellar dwellers.

Can you believe that the Simpsons are in their 25th season? 25 years and still going with somewhat socially relevant stories and occasional references to an incredibly violent cat and mouse pair. Yeah, not many other shows can get away with that and just keep getting renewed. And this last week (spoiler alert) they did a little play on the show “Homeland”, an excellent...

Perhaps inspired by last week’s “Gay Dad” episode of The League, DeAngelo Hall decided to leave Washington’s victory in the same Lacoste (presumably polo, because that’s the only shirt Lacoste makes, right?) shirt he showed up in. He didn’t expect to come up against the NFL uniform inspector who squashed the polo party with what might have been a little too much enjoyment...

The Washington Redskins beat the Oakland Raiders 24-14 on Sunday, and much joy was had in DC. The game was called on Fox by Dick Stockton and Ronde Barber, and there was a lot less joy shown towards those two, mostly because Stockton had issues pronouncing Brian Orakpo's last name. After the game, when learning about Stockton's difficulties saying his name, Orakpo wasn'...
Finally the Redskins have a victory. True, it was against the second stringers of one of the bottom five teams in the NFL, but they will take it.
Given the sad showing of the NFC East, the Redskins somehow have a glimmer of hope. To have any chances, the Redskins are going to have to kick it up several notches to go on a run.
The question is ‒ how can they dramatically...
Handing out labels after Skins games. This time a 27-14 win over Oakland.
Robert Griffin III. Didn’t make any spectacular plays, but didn’t make any big mistakes either (well, aside from the intentional grounding in the redzone). His movement looked better, especially on the scramble then pass to Helu which led to the final TD. “Efficient” is the Football Term for...
The game started out much like the first three weeks have for the Washington Redskins, down by 14 early on. The Redskins surrendered an early touchdown to the Raiders after a blocked punt from Sav Rocca was recovered in the end-zone. Matt Flynn, who was unexpectedly making his first start for Oakland in place of [...]
