Redskins Players Disappointed After Meeting With Goodell

Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall and linebacker London Fletcher were disappointed after their meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday, Jason Reid of the Washington Post reports.

"We had him here. And he opened up the ability for us to ask him questions," Fletcher said. "If you open up that ability then you have to be prepared to answer our questions.

"Certain things, he said, were part of the negotiations. But again, he was the one who opened up the possibility for us to ask him questions," Fletcher added. "When he did that, and guys had some real questions that we wanted hard answers to, not the typical questions, he didn't really answer. He didn't give us sound answers on a lot of the issues."

Hall viewed the sessions with the Commissioner as a straight waste of the players' time.

"He couldn't answer this, go check with this, go ask these people, I don't really know. It was a waste of time," Hall said. "We sat there and shot questions at him for 45 minutes, and pushed meetings back and had to be here longer for nothing. A total waste of time."

Now you know what they see in DeMaurice Smith. If you ask him a question and he doesn't think you will like the answer, he just makes something up.
