Courtesy of Steinz , here’s an interesting piece on the lack of Redskins involved in last Sunday’s sideline fracas featuring DeAngelo Hall. And, as usual, Hall’s honesty while appearing on the ‘LaVar Arrington Show’ offers insight into a dysfunctional unit, and provides us all with an opportunity to ROFL.

“But you’re right, you’re right, it is a little frustrating not having all the guys run over and help me, because you know LaVar, any time you’re on an opponent’s sideline and something goes down, that whole team’s trying to get a piece of you. They’re gonna definitely try to get a piece of you. I was fortunate enough, no blows were thrown, it was just a lot of pushing and pulling back and forth, and big Haynesworth finally got it in his head to come over there and he started moving the crowd. He started moving the crowd….

I’m not sure of Hall’s role in the pecking order of team popularity, but I do know that he has been one of the most quotable Redskins this season with the mantra of “we stink, we aren’t playing to potential, we’re playing for self.” Maybe he’s a respected veteran, maybe he isn’t; but the amount of talking he has done this year, truthful or not, can grate on the people who remain silent and are working to get it right.

It says quite a lot when you get in a group fight minus the majority of people in your group.
