After a confrontation with Falcons Head Coach Mike Smith and Falcons strength coach Jeff Fish during today’s Falcons-Redskins game, Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall said he planned to “get on the horn” with Roger Goodell and that there “needs to be repercussions” for what the Atlanta staffers did. Hall, from the ASSOCIATED PRESS:
(Did Mike Smith deck DeAngelo Hall?)
I’m going to get on the horn with commissioner Goodell, and we’re going to figure out a way how to nip this in the bud. It’s different with me coming in trying to break stuff up, and as a strength coach, if you coming at me and you’re trying to get (expletive) licks, that ain’t how you do things.
They need to have some repercussions, and something needs to happen to them, too. I’m definitely going to get on the phone with some of my guys up there, and we’re going to try to figure out a way to nip this thing in the bud.
The incident stemmed from Hall jumping into an altercation on the Falcons sideline following a late hit on Atlanta QB Matt Ryan by Hall’s Redskin teammate LaRon Landry.
