Deangelo Hall Threatened To Kill A Referee?

Recommended Posts

Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said Thursday that the NFL falsely accused him of threatening to kill an official during a Week 8 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Hall was

kicked out of the game and incurred a $30,000 fine for the on-field confrontation. Hall revealed Thursday that the NFL accused him of making a death threat.

"Yeah, he said that's what threw the flag for the ejection," Hall told Mark Maske of The Washington Post. "And so, you know, that didn't happen. That should have never happened, and we wouldn't be having this conversation. There's just a lot of things that are unresolved with that case that have to be resolved."

Hall said the NFL's investigation "felt like an interrogation" and was unfair. Hall believes he should have hired an outside attorney to represent him in the case, and he still might do so.

"Any time you've got one person that's the judge, jury and executioner -- he makes the fine, then he hears the appeal, then he decides the amount -- it's just tough," Hall said. "It's just tough. ... The CBA we agreed on probably wasn't in the best interests of the players, from my viewpoint."

The timing of Hall's rant is odd. The Redskins are on a five-game winning streak and nearing their first playoff berth since 2007, before Hall even was on the team. The incident is nearly two months old.

The NFL told Maske it would have no further comment on the matter.

DeAngelo Hall has made more money for being just slightly better than average NFL corner than anyone else in NFL history. Dunta Robinson takes the silver medal. Ironically, both were in the same NFL draft - think it was 2002.....

At least Dunta is not a headcase.

The average NFL corner is **** nowadays, so he's just slightly better than ****?

That is by League design.

The NFL needed to have higher scoring games to draw more interest in the Sport.

Hence the 5 yard contact rule.

That rule has been around longer than secondaries in the NFL having turned to ****. A lot of people say the passing game is easier nowadays because rule changes, this is true to an extant but inflated passing numbers also have a lot to do with many secondaries in the NFL being terrible.
