Marshawn Lynch Trolls the NFL on Super Bowl Media Day
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch famously doesn’t like to talk to the media, and he’s been fined $100,000 over the past two seasons by the NFL because of it.
But when Lynch was told that he’d be fined a whopping $500,000 if he didn’t appear at Super Bowl Media Day yesterday (January 27th), he decided to show up.
But he trolled both the league and the media by sitting down and announcing that all he would say was, “I’m here so I won’t get fined,” and then repeating that statement to every question he was asked until his phone alarm went off, letting him know his four minutes and 30 seconds was up, and he walked off.
Lynch was happy to sit for questions, though, the day before in a fake press conference as part of his ad campaign for Skittles.
