“I don’t take one thing back,â€ Dom Raiola stated in repsonse to a question about him being sorry after he flipped an obscene gesture at heckling Lions fans.
“I’m just tired of hearing it coming at just me,â€ Raiola said. “It’s coming at me because I’ve been here for years. I’ve been through the losing. Me, Jeff (Backus) and whoever else are the head of the losing.â€
“I’m just so frustrated,â€ 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.â€
Just like Lions fans, Dom has a reason to be frustrated and it is coming out. He should have tried to contain himself a little betterbut I wouldn’t condemn or boo him for it. If he does it again he will be run out of town but as a one time incident I wouldn’t get worked up. Athletes are passionate people sometimes.
