Lions C Dominic Raiola Fires Back At ‘Clown’ Henry Melton
Lions center Dominic Raiola called Henry Melton “a clown” one day after the Bears defensive tackle called the Lions “dirty” and “cheap.”
“Who? Who?” Raiola said, according to the Detroit Free Press, when asked about Melton’s comments Thursday. “Exactly.”
In anticipation of the teams’ upcoming showdown on Sunday, Melton accused Lions offensive players of playing dirty and singled out Raiola as the team’s chief trash talker. Raiola fired back, questioning Melton’s relevance and saying accusations that the Lions play dirty have gotten old.
“I mean, this guy, he made it to the Pro Bowl?” Raiola said. “This guy made the Pro Bowl? (Over) Kevin Williams, who worked through injuries all year? (Over Ndamukong) Suh, who’s a better player than this guy? Come on.
“It’s tiresome, especially from a guy like this, a guy that didn’t even play the past two weeks. … I don’t know what to say anymore. In my book, he’s a clown. That’s all I got.”
The Bears need a win over the Lions, coupled with a Packers win over the Vikings to earn the NFC’s sixth and final playoff berth.
