08:06 AM ET 12.28 | Lions center Dominic Raiola didn't much care for Chicago's Henry Melton calling the Lions "dirty" and "cheap," and he responded Thursday. [Raiola] lashed back at the Bears defensive tackle, saying he's "a clown" whose opinion doesn't matter in the Lions' locker room. "Who? Who?" Raiola said when asked about Melton's comments today. "Exactly. You got a defense full of superstars, and you don't hear from the guys that carry weight in my book. (Brian) Urlacher, (Lance) Briggs, (Charles) Tillman, (Israel) Idonije, older guys. (Julius) Peppers. The guys that have been there. We're talking about guys who carry weight. This guy? Not in my book." ... "I mean, this guy, he made it to the Pro Bowl?" Raiola said. "This guy made the Pro Bowl?"

Melton is a clown, but the Lions are still cheap and dirty.

And your china doll QB is getting taken off the field in a dust pan.

It just wouldn't be Christmas without the Lions in the cellar....

It could happen, we almost saw Sanchez go home in a 'booty' bag.

You speak the truth.

Dirty, cheap and down right awful too. Melton had it right. Sounds like Raiola(Who?) is a bit defensive about their worst in the NFC record, and he should be.

It may all be true but, the biggest question is: Can Da Bears beat them on Sunday? Everything else is a side show.

And Jim Schwartz just got a contract extension... Raiola might have a lot more to be defensive about next season, too.

Get back to us when the Lions can put together consecutive winning seasons.

that's the problem...and the point....Melton isn't Pro Bowl caliber...in fact, his inclusion on the Pro Bowl roster is one of the questionable points that has been raised by most sports writers...
