DeAngelo Hall, famous for talking, got himself ejected for talking trash to an official Sunday, and now he wants to talk some more — to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Hall got so mad at the officials during the Redskins’ loss to Pittsburgh that he had to be restrained by teammates, and even that wasn’t enough to keep him from getting ejected.
Hall, who made a lot of noise and a lot of enemies when he played for the Falcons from 2004 to 2007, went after head linesman Dana McKenzie after getting knocked down — he claimed pulled down by the face mask — by Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
Hall was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct and then ejected when he continued his tirade.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan was furious — with Hall.
“I’m very disappointed,” Shanahan said. “We talk all the time about keeping your composure regardless of what happens, regardless of what the situation is. You never put yourself in that type of situation.”
He said he wasn’t sure what Hall said, “but it was enough to draw a flag.”
For once, Hall refused to talk after the game — about his ejection, at least.
“I’m not going to discuss that particular play. I’ve got a meeting set up with Commissioner Goodell on Monday. (We) will talk about it, watch the film, figure out what went down, and hopefully get to the bottom of this.”
Sounds like Hall already has the meeting agenda all laid out. Except that, as a reporter informed him, the NFL offices are closed on Monday due to Hurricane Sandy. “Well, we’re gonna figure something out,” Hall said. “I’ve got my agent calling them, trying to set something up.”
This isn’t the first time Hall’s antics have cost his team. Last year, he accumulated 20 yards of penalties in one play against the Patriots, helping to extend a New England scoring drive.
