D HALL GETTIN AT PETRINO


Recommended Posts

Summary for those who didn't see it:

He's saying that he wasn't mad at all at first but it's kind of a slap in the face to him and his teammates to watch him on tv doing pig-sooey (or whatever) with all the Arkansas fans.

Said that if he saw Petrino on the street he would have nothing to say to him, thought Petrino was in it for the long haul.

Said that Petrino lied to a great man in Arthur Blank.

Thought Petrino was moving in the right direction (in terms of communication, etc.) but then they got blind-sided by this.

Said there's no where to go but up and we're playing for a great owner and GM and for great fans.

Said that Petrino can go to Arkansas which isn't even a good SEC team (HAHAHAHAHA!!!!)

Said he has no respect for Petrino after he turns his back on the organization and team.

That interview made me feel a lot better about the situation. At least someone stepped up and didn't care about being politically correct and called out Petrino for what he did. Screw Petrino, the Falcons are gonna be better off without him. Way to go Hall for speaking your mind. Maybe your words will fire up this team and they'll play a little better.

What's funny about that is that we have Anderson and Houston.

looks like the players who were skeptical early on were dead on. i wanted him to do well here and the vick stuff was out of his control, but as the year went on, i just lost more and more confidence in his ability to lead grown men.

and yes, watching him yukking it up with the piggies does make me angry after i really haven't been angry this evening.

Hall is so full of it. He has no respect for Petrino, ha. I'm am sure the feeling is mutual, MeAngelo.

His comments just reinforces to me the reason Petrino washed his hands with these players. Self centered, would rather be ProBowl than SuperBowl egotistically players...

I really hope that we don't lose D Hall. He's the kind of athlete we need. Hopefully, he won't go overboard and make a fool of himself. Don't get me wrong, he and every player and fan have a right to be mad right now. I just hope he checks his emotions, says his peace and get BACK to the business of helping this team WIN!

I must say that I was very impressed with how Hall controlled his anger and spoke in that Sports Center interview without backing himself into a corner or saying something he would regret. He made some very valid points, expecially his point about how he was not angry at first but upon seeing the Bobby Petrino press conference he is now very mad.

At one point he said "If I ever see him in the street..." then he paused for a breath and maybe his thoughts for a split second; I thought 'oh no, here it comes." He then continued: "... I would have nothing to say to him." Whew! I thought he was going to say something stupid but he handled himself very well. Way to go Hall!

I love D Hall-he tells it like it is-every team needs a guy like that!!! Props to Hall!!!!:)

I have said all along that letting Hall go would be a mistake. This gose to show you D. Hall cares about this team. But you all know some Ja(k off is going to start a thread saying he is a thug for speaking his mind. Some of the people on this board are just Yucking idiots.

Oh shut up. Petrino resigned so he couldn't be fired first. Hall was telling it like it is, and if you can't handle that then... no one cares... Hall was right, Petrino quit on them, not the other way around.

This is an excellent example of my previous post in this thread.

hahaha yeah, I laughed so hard at that. That was icing on the cake.

...

Wow, talk about leaving a bad taste, this friggin' sucks seeing almost all of the ATL fan base being ******** about this. First off, most of ya'll hated the fact that we hired Petrino in the first place, which is fine, but now everyone is gonna go off hating my college team? That's fine I guess.
