Marshawn Lynch is back in the NFL, and he’s back to being fined for his gestures.

The NFL fined Lynch $12,000 for a gesture he made on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. TV cameras caught Lynch flipping the double bird to the Titans’ Karl Klug.

That’s far from the first time Lynch has been fined for inappropriate gestures. Lynch was fined $20,000 for grabbing his crotch after scoring a touchdown in the NFC Championship Game in January of 2015. He was also fined $11,050 for doing the same thing a month earlier.

The NFL has previously warned Lynch that inappropriate gestures could also draw a 15-yard penalty.

  1. Just another punk to add to the quagmire of punks that is the NFL . I still love the game but i will buy no swag, no tickets, no sunday ticket, no red zone no nothing to fund the lifestyles of neanderthals like marshawn lynch .

  2. I’m so happy he’s a Raider. I don’t care what he does as long as he keeps trucking All Pro defensive tackles.

  3. I guess you get a fine reset if you retire then come back.

    Keep the bird to yourself Marshawn, you have a good chance here don’t give that freaktard Goodell any reason to take interest.

  4. Having not seen the game I’m curious to know why he was flipping off Klug. Was Klug talking trash previously? Or maybe done something else to offend Marshawn? It’s not like he just saw the guy and figured he flip him off….something had to have been said or done to set him off. I’d like to know what it was. But no matter, I just love seeing Marshawn back in the game. Love him or hate him the guy is fun to watch.

  5. Amazing how they care about flipping the bird but are completely blind to the coaches swearing on camera. The worst case of selective outrage was with Manziel. The Redskins players were laughing but the media had to play it over and over again. Slo-mo, middle finger cross hatched out. It was a media circus. In the same game, Pettine was caught on camera swearing up a storm but the announcers/media ignored it.

  6. I guess Mr. Lynch thinks there’s some shock value in the obscene gesture, but most of us got past that in the 5th grade.

    ‘Paying’ to flip the bird is even dumber.

  7. All the guys screaming about class are most likely the same who are in favor of participation trophies.

    Athletes need not set an example—that’s the job of parents and coaches.

    These are not choir boys. They play a violent sport and violent sports are usually filled with a fair amount of colorful characters.

    Lynch looks good and is steamrolling 300lb Dlinemen.

    Get used to it…again.

  8. I don’t understand why people are all on this “role model” stuff. It’s not football players jobs to teach values to your children, it’s YOURS. Do some parenting and teach your children to think for themselves, teach them right and wrong and enable them to differentiate between them for themselves.

    If your kids are so impressionable that they’ll just blindly imitate anything and everything they see on TV, then sorry but they got bigger problems coming in life than a couple middle fingers.

    Society won’t raise your kids for you, and society isn’t gonna coddle them and tell them they’re special and shelter them from everything that is potentially offensive or upsetting.

    Raise them yourselves. Teach them yourselves. It’s fine if you don’t like the guy, but get over this “role model” BS

  9. Was this after the Titans stuffed him at the goal line after multiple tries?

    ________________________

    As a Seahawks fan of course I thought this was interesting. Can’t tell you how many times we’ve all heard the Seahawks should have run the ball with Marshawn Lynch on the one. And that’s with an offensive line that’s much worse than the Raiders current version.

    Pretty certain that the Patriots would have stuffed him on the one as well back then and Pete and Bevell knew that. The play they ran was a bad one no doubt, but I’m not sure that a run from the one was a good idea either. Play action roll out would have been a much better option in my opinion. Throwing to the fourth receiver on the team trying to pick Brandon Browner was a horrible idea but Marshawn would have been stuffed also.

  10. Like Charles Barkley once said, “I am no role model, I am a basketball player.”

    Parents step it up. There will always be the Marshawn lynch’s of the world, if your kid makes them a role model that is on you as a parent.

    That said I am glad my son has Russell Wilson to look up to instead. I have a lot less explaining to do.

  11. I love it Lynch is a throw back raider Al would be proud. I also love how pissed off people are getting about this it’s to funny. Why do people get so upset about the double finger? Lynch is out there being him self having fun and bringing some swag back to th NFL. Just win baby. #RaiderNation

    When did that happen? lol. The only play I can recall was a 4&1 and Lynch swerving a free runner in the backfield to stiff arm his way for a 1st down at the goal line.

    Dude, you are so wrong. When I take my kids to a sporting event. I dont expect them to be subject to these stunts by a major star who all eyes follow. You are a Raider fan and anything nasty and grotesques is cool to you, right? It would be cool for a raider fan to flip off someone in front of your daughter, right? Dude, get your trip together!

  15. Weird, never heard anything negative about Klug to warrant that. Maybe he had gotten the better of Lynch on a previous play. Now if he flipped Lewan off, I’d understand.

    Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Yet you tune in every Sunday to watch several “neanderthals” entertain you.

    No surprises here. Not Lynch nor his cadre of supporters. But to take a page from the “most likely” book, most likely those same athletic supporters would turn on him had he gone to NE.

    And yeah, pretty clear he’s not a role model, unless you’re going for race obsessed and anti social.
