Over the weekend, word emerged that Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had been fined $50,000 for his lack of words to the media.
The 12th Man has his back. And his wallet.
According to Terry Blount of ESPN.com, Seahawks fans already have raised $2,000 via an online fundraising site to offset Lynch’s punishment.
Um, folks? Lynch had a base salary of $7 million during the 2013 season. And he knows that the rules that apply to his huge salary include talking to the media twice per week during the regular season.
The money Lynch will pay for the fine will go to charity. Here’s hoping that whatever money the fans raise for Lynch ends up in the hands of charity, too.
