Raiola: Of course its not just the centers fault for a team sucking for 8 years. BUT, the main point here is that the team has sucked for 8 years (actually 50+, but i'm being nice). Oh, and you shouldn't be flipping the people that pay to watch you, even when your team is on the verge of being the worst team ever. I lost a lot of respect for Raiola reading this article. The Lions already get enough negative attention for losing, we don't need more.

...and nobody wants to be treated like trash but they have certainly played like it (or at least been coached like it). That being said I don't agree with staying after game just hurl personal insults and/or actual objects at the players. If your really that angry...DON'T BUY TICKETS!
I'm sure that half of the main offenders aren't exactly a model employees. No one ever comes to your job to heckle you for making crappy products or providing poor services (unless your a CEO of the BIG 3, I guess).
Anyways, regardless of what I think about it, I agree with Sean Baligian's on Raiola's stance on this!
