A year ago at Super Bowl media day, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch played peek-a-boo with reporters, using a side entrance to make a late arrival and an early getaway.
This year, the NFL put him on a podium for a tougher escape, probably as the league’s reminder they set the rules.
Lynch showed up and did his part. Our guy Curtis Crabtree was in the best position to hear this nothing, as Lynch gave the same answer to all the early questions.
“I’m just here so I won’t get fined,” he said repeatedly.
Lynch left after less than five minutes, making the appropriate gesture of whatever it is he’s trying to prove.
It really doesn’t have to be that hard. Lynch was able to make a promotional video for candy, but he can’t talk to the people who want to hear from him on other matters.
