    What caused DeAngelo Hall to go bat-guano crazy near the end of the game?

    I was at the game, and couldn't tell from my upper deck bleacher seat vantage point what set Hall off to the point that he would be so abusive toward the refs that he got himself ejected from the game. Just wondering...


    To JAX 1.22 (780 pts)
    To PIT 2.36 (540 pts) + 3.67 (255 pts) = 795 pts

    No clue, it looks as innocuous as can be, even in replays, but he calmly removes his helmet to talk (which is a no-no) and then he just lashes out and needs to be restrained.

    Here's the video from the NFL

    according to an article I read in yahoo sports, DeAngelo Hall complained that Emmanuel Sanders had cut blocked him earlier and the referees hadn't called it.

    I think Hall's reaction was out of frustration and because he has always had a predisposition to be reactionary and lose his temper.

    Sanders had a "potty mouth" and hurt his feelings
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    What I'm hearing here in the DC area is Shanahan and Hall are saying Sanders had Hall in a full nelson and took him down on the play. I certainly didn't see it that way. Then Hall says when he went to the official to ask him why he didn't throw a flag on Sanders the Ref started giving him a rash of crap. That's when Hall went berserk. They are now searching for camera views which would show what the official said.

    I'm sure 'The Daniel' has already hired the best lip readers that money can buy who will tell us what the ref said.

    they're talking about it on ESPN right now and they said Hall is claiming Sanders grabbed his face mask and Hall asked the referee why there was no penalty on the play and then both of them started yelling at each other.

    Send DeAngelo an autographed Bumblebee Prison #88 jersey.

    Manny has a little fight in him and Hall got a little frustrated with him.

    I looked it over a couple of times and to me it seems like here was no issues between Sanders and Hall after the play or nothing more than just pushing away from each other as many players do. All a big misunderstanding and tempers got the best of one player and possibly an official. Best thing to do is just forget about it after having a Ward Clever type talk with both of them. It's a heated game and these things happen.
