01:55 PM ET 10.31 | Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall made headlines for all the wrong reasons in Week 8 after he was ejected for berating a referee, but Hall says both he and the ref share equal blame for the incident. The veteran corner joined 106.7 The Fan in Washington, D.C. and indicated that there are efforts being made to find other angles of the argument to establish some culpability on the ref's side. Hall argued that a cooler, more mature self prevailed in the initial scrum with Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. He initially walked away from the tussle after taking a couple shots from the wideout, but his involvement also drew a flag -- prompting the confrontation with the referee. "If you look at the TV copy, you won't only see me. That's why we are trying to get other copies and other angles, so you can see both sides, but me and the ref was equally at fault on that particular play."

MeAngelo is a moron.

Just when I thought this bozo couldn't get any dumber he goes ahead and proves me wrong. This guy has been over-rated since his first day as a pro.

They should have asked him how is it that he is rated 95th out of 99 CBs in the NFL. Plenty of great footage from a lot of angles for that.

So if another player hits you in the face Hall...he can claim it was your fault for standing there. How nice.....NEXT!

Yeah, it was the ref's fault - the ref who was backing up to avoid a confrontation while Hall kept going at him.

Trade him to the Packers where the whole team is a ref-blaming squad.

October 31, 2012  03:52 PM ET

I've about had it with this guy. He hasn't done squat so far this season and now this.

Once a punk, always a punk...

Remember when this idiot started a pregame brawl vs. Philly when he played for the Falcons?

He'd fit in well. He'd provide more whine for all that cheese...

Succinct. To the point. +1

What a moron!!!

October 31, 2012  04:24 PM ET

He kinda reminds me of a Ron Artest lite. Both do idiotic things like trying to start a fight with refs or taking a fight into the stands.

Well almost like Ron Artest...'cept he got no skills.

DOLT!

Whoa lets not jump to conclusions here.

The Packers actually had legit reasons to have a beef. Not grand delusions.

You make it sound as if he's done anything since he's been there.

Saunders kicked his ****, the ref was right there, and didn't throw a flag, so Hall repeatedly yelled "Forget You" or something like that at the ref until he was penalized and ejected! AND... it's the refs fault! What a moroon.

Priceless!!!!

October 31, 2012  04:51 PM ET

Dead Man Walking, look for a suspension!!!
