Seattle Seahawks superstar Marshawn Lynch facing massive fine after interview
Marshawn Lynch's Bizarre Super Bowl Press Conference: 'I'm Just Here So I Won't Get Fined' Video: YouTube
Faced with a $500,000 fine, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch rocked-up to the mandatory Super Bowl media day and gave the same response to 29 questions he was asked: "I'm just here so I won't get fined."
The Seahawks superstar has been in trouble with NFL officials before for not doing media.
Seahawks teammate and star quarterback Russell Wilson defended his mate.
"I just think that sometimes we focus on things that don't matter and don't make any difference," Wilson said, on ESPN.
"Marshawn is a great football player and a guy that puts his work in every day and is dedicated to the game of football and dedicated to his teammates.
"The guy loves the game. Sometimes people try to take away from people the way they are. I don't think he should be fined, personally."
