polo-hall

After Sunday’s game, Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall saw his locker rook chat with reporters come to an abrupt end as a NFL uniform inspector walked over and told him he could not speak with them anymore due to Hall wearing a polo shirt with a little Lacoste logo on it.

Via the Sports Bog‘s Dan Steinberg:

“Now, I don’t want to fine you. But I could,” the inspector said. “For what?” Hall said.

“That,” the inspector said, pointing to the logo.

“For a T-shirt?” Hall asked. “I wore this to the game! This isn’t the podium. What am I supposed to do?”

“You don’t have to do the interview,” the inspector said.

“Okay, I’m not doing it,” Hall said. “Hey, y’all write about this,” he said to the press. “Write about him shutting down my interview.”

And indeed everyone is writing about and it’s absurdity. A quick look on NFL.com shows players speaking with the media while wearing everything but league-sanctioned attire (via CBSSports.com)
