ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -Detroit center Dominic Raiola says he has no remorse for making an obscene gesture toward Lions fans because their heckling went too far.
Raiola told a reporter he didn't regret extending his middle finger toward fans Sunday during a 20-16 loss to Minnesota, which dropped the Lions to 0-13.
He said fans have been particularly hard on him because he's been with the team since 2001, when it started a slide that has become the NFL's worst eight-season mark in more than a half-century.
NFL spokesman Randall Liu said the league will look into it.
The NFL has fined players for making similar gestures this season and in past years, such as 2006 when Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick extended both middle fingers toward fans at a home game.
