Carolina Panthers. And DeAngelo Hall says he may be suspended for
the first quarter or first half of Sunday's game against the
Hall isn't pleased with the decision and plans to appeal through
the NFL Players Association.
The 0-and-3 Falcons acted quickly after their defensive star was
called for three penalties totaling 67 yards on one possession,
then got into a heated sideline confrontation with coach Bobby
Petrino (peh-TREE'-noh) and an assistant.
The penalties led to a Carolina touchdown that tied the game at
17 in the third quarter. The Panthers went on to win the game
Petrino confirms a decision has been reached on disciplining
Hall, but he won't discuss the details.
