Lions player apologizes to UW band members
and offers donation to band
MADISON-A Detroit Lions player now apologized for harassing UW band members during Sunday's Packers game.
This is a complete turnaround from his earlier statements when he said the band was exaggerating about homophobic and gender based taunts.
The team says Dominic Raiola had a phone conversation with the band director Tuesday and indicated he would be making a significant donation to the marching band.
Raiola also released a statement saying "My interaction with the Wisconsin March Band was inappropriate, I apologize to those I offended along with all of the members of Wisconsin's March Band."
The Lions organization says since Dominic has offered an apology, there will be no punishment against him.
