NFL drops the ball; Fails to suspend Lions center for dirty play
Lions center Dominic Raiola said he was not fined by the NFL for his play at the end of Sunday’s 34-9 loss to New England where he dived at the knees of Patriots defensive lineman Zach Moore.
“There’s no fine. It was during the game,” Raiola said Tuesday. “I don’t know about regrets. I don’t live life with regrets. I know I didn’t intentionally try to hurt anybody.
“I didn’t try to do anything out of the ordinary. I would have gotten a FedEx letter for that, so just play the game. I mean, I didn’t make it a big deal. Everybody else did.”
The NFL dropped the ball big-time on this one. It was a dirty play, and he admitted he was doing it on purpose.
