DeAngelo Hall caused a ruckus last Sunday when the Washington Redskins cornerback couldn’t contain his mouth when he started jabbing at a ref, leading to his ejection in the fourth quarter in a game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Hall could face possible suspensions for his rudeness, but the 28-year-old wants to tell his side of the story.
“From that particular camera angle you can’t see what that ref’s saying to me. 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 said, according to ESPN.
Hall said he wanted different camera angles so he can show “both sides” to commissioner Roger Goodell. Hall says he wants to “tell his side of the story, just like them.” Hall said that him and the ref were “equally at fault” for the incident.
Goodell announced that there will be a decision to give Hall discipline soon.
“You know, our football operations staff are looking at that. I got a briefing this morning on it. They are going through the process of evaluating and getting all the information and they’ll be making a decision on that either today or tomorrow, I believe,” he said.
Hall knows that players need to respect the referees, but he also thinks that the NFL is unfair and is more biased to the officials.
“It’s not a system in place where … they’re the good cops and we’re the criminals. It has to be an even playing field, a level playing field,” Hall said. “If they want us to go out there and respect them, they have to do the same thing. They have to give us the same kind of respect that I feel like we’ve been giving them as players, as referees that ultimately control some of the calls in these games. Nobody is going out there trying to bully the referees, and likewise they shouldn’t be out there trying to bully us.”
Hall was mainly unhappy about the call that the refs didn’t make, as Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders got a little rough with Hall in the fourth on a play. This led to the upset by Hall, which led to his tirade over the refs with the non-call, eventually leading to his ejection.
We’ll see how the NFL handles this situation soon, even after Hall’s recent comments.
