Lions' president apologizes for Raiola's comments toward UW marching band

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The president of the Detroit Lions has apologized for obscenities and offensive remarks that center Dominic Raiola made to the UW-Madison marching band at Sunday's Packer game. 

A band member wrote on Facebook that he was marching up the field to perform the national anthem when Raiola questioned his sexuality -- and among other things, he shouted obscenities to a trombone player and a female band member later on. 

The veteran Raiola tells Fox Sports the story has been blown way out of proportion, and the Lions have more important things to worry about like wins and losses. 

Apparently, Raiola's bosses don't agree. Lions' president Tom Lewand promised a full investigation when he called the UW and apologized Monday. 

Coach Jim Schwartz said he'd also look into it. 

Band director Mike Leckrone told WISC-TV in Madison that Raiola went beyond the normal razzing that band members get from opposing players -- and the insults got really personal and offensive.

Packers' coach Mike McCarthy said he didn't know what Raiola was thinking -- and he said the Packers love the Badgers, and fans love the UW band when they play at Lambeau.
