Raiola Gives Lions Fans The Finger

8 posts in this topic

Detroit center Dominic Raiola says he has no remorse for making an obscene gesture toward Lions fans because their heckling went too far.

“I’m just so frustrated,” Raiola said. “I’m tired of being a doormat for people to just talk to us how they want to talk to us. I’m just not going to put up with that anymore.”

Raiola wishes he could give some fans his home address.

“I’d do that, but you can’t,” he said. “Nobody plays with fists. Everybody wants to play with metal.

Four game suspension.

Not that there's four games left, but the last one will be enforced next year.

Honestly though, with how everything has gone wrong in Detroit for the Lions though, why would you punish them even more at this point?

It would be fair to say there would be a fair amount of frustration from both players and fans at that club :lol:

Just because you (Lions) stink that shouldn't mean your players can get away with this kind of on-field "infraction"

Matt Millen has been giving Lions fans the finger for years.

(you could say he's still doing it)

He might not consider a 4 game suspension a punishment exactly...lol

Nobody would fight him anyway. They'd just run by him and steal all his stuff, not like he could stop anyone.

    • If nothing else that would mean more kicker jobs as guys like Lloyd would be in demand as a kick off specialist.
    • im generally ok with individual consumers boycotting but tbh im a little annoyed with companies boycotting. these businesses aren't benevolent and boycotting doesn't make their product more pure or their mode of production more ethical. i mean hey big deal ncaa, you moved your games. you're not taking much of a hit there but you get your positive press for your incredibly shitty business. like ok cool you hate the dumb law, i do too. maybe pay your employees before trying to stake out the moral high ground though??? meanwhile the nba moves it's all star game to louisiana where the largely black prison population still picks cotton on "former" slave plantations. hb2 is so mind numbingly stupid that it's easy to oppose without fear of having to sacrifice meaningful profits. im saving praise for companies that oppose oppressive institutions that aren't easy or profitable to oppose.
