Seattle Seahawks star Marshawn Lynch does NOT LIKE MEDIA ATTENTION. He made an early exit at Super Bowl media day – walking out after just 6 and 1/2 minutes – then returned to Tuesday’s session just in time to possibly avoid a hefty fine from the NFL. (NFL says you gotta Meet The Press, man.)
The NFL says it will “continue to monitor” Marshawn regarding his accessibility to the media between now and the Super Bowl. During the regular season, Marshawn was fined $50,000 for failing to meet with reporters during the regular season, but the fine was suspended in exchange for Lynch pledging to make himself accessible for interviews during the playoffs.
At the media day in Jersey, after returning to face the throngs of press-types, he donned sunglasses and a hoodie – showing his disdain for attention. But Deion Sanders grabbed him and got some choice quotes from our one and only Beast Mode. And after all that, he started the conversation off with a big S-bomb. The media may not love him, but we sure do.
