Detroit Lions center Dominic Raiola is one of the more outspoken people in football. His mouth has been known to get him into trouble over the years, but the accusations made against him in the wake of the Detroit Lions’ game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday are worse than anything we have ever heard about the 34-year-old veteran.
Raiola has been accused by multiple people of making obscene remarks toward the Wisconsin band during pregame warmups at Lambeau Field. One of the band’s tuba players reportedly told NFL blogger Tom Melton that Raiola called several members of the band “fat motherf—ers” and told them they “sucked.” The band was supposedly preparing to play the National Anthem and did not provoke Raiola in any way.
The stories get worse. Melton said another band member told him one of his fellow female members tried to get Raiola’s attention and he responded by calling her “the c-word.” Additional members of the band claimed Raiola made comments about one instrument player’s sexuality, calling him a “fag” and saying he was going to “take his trumpet and shove it up his sister’s p—y.”
