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.

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.
