Well, it’s another Perfect Football Weekend for us, Denizens, and this week’s lead-in has sort of a political dovetail – that being, Roger
Goodfella Goodall Goodfella is being the NFL’s designated mob ass again.
That is to say, by denying WASHINGTON REDSKINS!!!!! (there, you bastards, I said it – what’re you pussies gonna do about it?) cornerback D’Angelo Hall his right to free expression.
Case in point: Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall was laughing, joking and filling up reporters’ notebooks and recording devices with post-game gold after Sunday’s victory over the Oakland Raiders. Hall, when he wants to be, is among the more quotable and colorful players in the league.
But as he talked to a gaggle of media, Hall — wearing a Lacoste logo shirt — was approached by the NFL inspector and asked to stop talking because of his shirt.

#Redskins DeAngelo Hall was banned from talking with us by an NFL uniform inspector, who said he couldn’t speak while wearing a Polo shirt.
And they threatened to fine him if he didn’t.
So here we have Roger Goodfella thinking he and the NFL are above the United States Constitution. “Ve can tellink dju vhat zhirt dju c’n vear, und eeef dju don’t likez vhat ve tell dju, dju geevs us djur moneyz, djyessss?”
Hall showed a helluva lot of restraint. I’d've been tempted to take off my Polo shirt, and wrap it tightly around said inspector’s neck.
Actually, y’know what? No – I wouldn’t have been tempted to do it. I’d've done it.
On to the football. Phillip Young’s Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets (no way I’m claiming them as mine after that POS performance last week) have a little easier time of it tonight against Trimble Technical, but I still think the Bulldogs will pull this one out. (In spades, if you declare that you won’t win a single hand, and manage not to, that’s called “nilo” and you get 130 points for it. I have my fingers crossed.)
Saturday, Gary Patterson’s TCU Horned Frogs travel up to Norman, to take on a former PFW target team, the Oklahoma Sooners. Maybe, just for this week, we could call TCU an SEC team. Bob Stoops has trouble with SEC teams…
Also Saturday, Turner Gill’s Liberty U. Flames are at Old Dominion. The Monarchs get ready for their season by playing the likes of E. Carolina & Maryland – and, well, they looked respectable against E. Carolina.
Vegas never rates Liberty’s games, so I’m gonna invoke the SpatulaLine and ask Turner to keep the margin within 25.
In addition, recent PFW addition #6 Georgia will visit the Vols of UTennessee. If the Dawgs can contain the Vols on the ground, UTenn’s passing attack is ranked 112th in the NCAA. They’re an 11-point road fave, so this shouldn’t be a problem.
Sunday, it doesn’t get any easier for the Houston Texans, as they’re out in San Transexual to face a FairyWhiner squad in desperate need of a win. The Whiners are a seven-point favorite, and Coach Stay-Puf’s defenses don’t like mobile quarterbacks, so it’s probably a third-straight loss for the Tex-annes.
Before that, though, Peyton Manning and his record-setting passing attack come into the Death Star to take on the NFL’s worst secondary…the Dallas Cowgirls. Broncos are an eight-point favorite here, and it might get there in the first couple of drives. Should take off from there, though.
We’re back Monday or so for the recap. Look for me to be in a snarly mood after I go 1-5.
