SHARE Marshawn Lynch: ‘I’m here so I won’t get fined’

Marshawn Lynch continues to be the bane of every sports reporter’s existence. But he’s nothing if not consistent.

Lynch, the Seahawks’ running back, answered every question at Tuesday’s Super Bowl media day with “I’m here so I won’t get fined.”

Previously this year Lynch answered every postgame question with “Yeah.” Another time he only said “Thanks for asking.” There was also the time he said only “I’m thankful.”

Lynch was fined $100,000 late last year for avoiding his media obligations. He was also fined $20,000 for grabbing his crotch after a touchdown.

Perhaps the league will also fine him for saying he’s only there to not get fined.
