ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions center Dominic Raiola says the team has fined him $15,000 for his actions after beating the Miami Dolphins.

Raiola was filmed responding to a fan in Miami with obscene words and a hand gesture as he walked off the field following the Lions' 34-27 win on Sunday.

Raiola, a team captain, said Wednesday it wasn't a good way to conduct himself.

Raiola was fined $7,500 by the Lions two years ago for inappropriate conduct directed toward fans during a loss at home to Minnesota.
