Marshawn Lynch Interview Video: 'I'm Here So I Won't Get Fined'

Marshawn Lynch poses for the camera while attending the 2015 Super Bowl Media Day held inside the U.S. Airways Center on Tuesday (January 27) in Phoenix, Ariz.

The 28-year-old Seattle Seahawks running back only showed up for the media day because he was threatened with a $500,000 fine from the NFL if he did not participate.

“Oh, it’s starting? Well, then let me start. Hey, I’m just here so I don’t get fined,” Marshawn started off his press conference. “So y’all can sit here and ask me all the questions y’all want to. I’m going to answer with the same answer. So y’all can shoot if y’all please.”

When reporters asked question after question, he continuously plead the fifth by saying “I’m here so I won’t get fined.” Watch below!

    His antics aren’t funy. He’s acting like an entitled brat. It is in the players contract that they speak to the media. He gets paid millions and refuses to have a conversation about the game or give some insight to the fans who support him.

  • Heather

    He shouldn’t be made to do something he obviously does not want to do. He’s here to play a game not pander to the public or media.

    It’s part of his job to speak to the media. I think these guys forget that they are part of a business organization, and are employees. Not sure why people feel it necessary to coddle these grown men. When the rest of us don’t like some aspects of the job, we’re told to suck it up or get another job.

  • michelle

    What an ungrateful, undeserving, arrogant bastard! This is the perfect example of someone that doesn’t deserve the fame and riches that they have. There are thousands of people who would gladly trade places with him and actually be grateful for the opportunities that they have. Some people just make me SICK 👎

  • Lola_coop

    That was funny as hell to me, idc.

  • Penny Dreadful

    Oh, I love it!!!!

  • Matters_To_Who

    It is part of the job.

  • roserie

    That could have been T-Pain

  • Aaron Williams

    lol, because he doesn’t want to talk to the media? To me, it sounds like the media and people like you, feel entitled to hear a man who has stated multiple times in his NFL career that he doesn’t like talking to the media. Why egg him on in hoping to get a rise out him. In addition, its noted that he has anxiety issues that doesn’t conflate well when cameras and microphone and questions shoved in your face.

  • raquel

    that’s quite the dramatic reaction. Not all people are comfortable talking in public much less to 20 – 30 journalists bombarding you with questions all recorded and because of this he’s “ungrateful and undeserving”? yes it is part of his job and he has to deal with it but some people just aren’t comfortable with attention and that doesn’t make them arrogant. I know I sure as hell wouldn’t be and would try to opt out of it if I could. you need to calm the fuckk down

  • Potsy

    I disagree his job is to play football! That is what he is there to do – not everyone wants or needs to be in front of the media. That doesn’t change the way he plays the game he is hired to play!!

  • CLX

    Unfortunately, that is not the case in the pros. He signs a contract, and the contract specifies his responsibilities. I agree that talking to the media is not related to his play on the field, but it is related to his role in the big business of football, and that business includes contributing toward media coverage of the sport. These guys are getting paid and he agreed to the terms of the contract. This is not college football. I really see no other employee refusing to do part of his job because in his opinion it is not necessary or not related to his main task, or he simply doesn’t feel like it.

  • Oskeet Skeet

    Doesn’t deserve the fame and riches? You’re stupid bro, I’d hate to trade places with him, contrary to popular belief playing in the NFL is kinda hard.
