Dominic Raiola Stomps Ego Ferguson’s Ankle During Lions & Bears Game — Accident?
The Detroit Lions’ 20-14 win over the Chicago Bears on Dec. 21 was overshadowed by a very controversial incident in the end zone.
Dominic was caught by cameras, dropping his full weight on Ego’s right ankle as he exited a pile-up during the third quarter.
However, the offensive lineman insists that the action was a complete accident and that he simply did not see where he was stepping at the time.
“It was totally unintentional,” Dominic told ESPN. “I remember I was stumbling out. I didn’t see the end of it. I apologized at the end of the game, told him it was unintentional and we shook hands and that was it.”
Ego Ferguson Reacts
But Ego says that’s not the case. Without getting into specifics of what exchange the two had after the game, he says that Dominic’s intention is apparent from the footage.
“None of that matters,” he told ESPN reporters of his conversation with Dominic. “We all saw the play. You can’t take back what happened with that play. That’s the end of that.”

What do you think, Hollywoodlifers? Did Dominic do this on purpose, or was it an honest mistake?
