On a day when long-time Lions center Dominic Raiola blasted newly-reinstated receiver Titus Young, Young “met with” the media after practice.  In an interview with the Detroit News, Raiola revealed that he has “moved on” from Young’s days as a Lion. “It’s not a distraction because we have moved on from him.  If he wants to be an a******, let him be an a******. It’s not my problem. What we can control is the guys who want to be here. I want people who want to be here and I think everybody else wants the same thing.  If you don’t want to be here, then leave.  We’ve got the best player in the world over there (in Calvin Johnson).  He should look no further than that to know how to act. If you are going to act like that, you are done.” Raiola has never been one to pull punches when it comes to expressing his opinion.  And while his past opinions have not always been on the mark, he couldn’t have his the bullseye anymore accurately with this one.  Here is Young’s exchange with the media after practice today. Here is a LINK TO THE MY FOX 2 DETROIT VIDEO. Q. What led to your absence from the team for last week’s loss to the Houston Texans? A. “Well, what happens in house stays in house.” Q. Are you disappointed you’ve been sent home from the facility twice in six months? A. “Well, I just made my comment on that whole situation.” Q. How are you progressing this week to get back in the playing mix? A. “Well.” Q. Do you expect to play Sunday? A. “Well, that’s all in God’s hands.” Q. Lions coach Jim Schwartz said you need to be more accountable, is this part of that? A. “Well, you have to talk to Coach about that.” Q. What would you say to fans who wonder if they can trust you again? A. “Well, I’m not here to talk about that past.” Q. Do you understand why people are curious about your situation? A. “I didn’t get the question.” (The question was repeated, and Young, who wore sunglasses and a stocking cap during the interview, did not respond.) Q. Are you disappointed in yourself? A. “I’m not here to comment about the past.” To be blunt, Titus Young, Sr. (this guy) is a loser. He had the opportunity to man up and admit that he has made mistakes and that he’s ready to move on to be a key part of this team. Instead, he cowered like a coward. And to make matters worse, the Lions’ coaching staff and administration acted like losers. Either make Young available to the media to ACTUALLY DISCUSS things or let him change in a closet. If he’s going to be made available, make him lose the hood, glasses and skull cap. They have had numerous opportunities to change the culture of this team…and much like their first half of the season, they have failed miserably. And for the record Titus, it isn’t in God’s hands whether you play Sunday.  God doesn’t make the lineup.
