Marshawn Lynch Stiffs Reporters but Gives Skittles the Best Press Conference Ever
The Super Bowl is this Sunday and yesterday was media day for the players. In true Marshawn Lynch fashion, the Seahawks running back answered every question with: “I’m just here so I won’t get fined” (video embedded below). It has also been reported that Lynch would be fined $500,000 if he failed to be available for Media Day:

Lynch’s beef with reporters stems from a belief that they misconstrue and manipulate players’ words. He did however, grant Skittles a press conference where he opened up quite a bit 🙂
