Marshawn Lynch curses on live TV after brief Media Day appearance
While Lynch can make the 12th man roar unlike any other, he likes to keep to himself when it comes to media attention. The running back left the session after six minutes on Tuesday.
Lynch could be subject to a fine by the NFL for not fully cooperating. In fact, Lynch was docked $50,000 earlier this month for not speaking with local media. The league decided to put the fine on hold and noted that it would be lifted if his behavior changed.
Here's the highlight from his brief stint:
NFL Network’s Deion Sanders was able to track down the seventh-year running back and conducted a very entertaining interview.
Sanders: You look good.
Lynch: (Expletive), you do, too. (Laughter)
Sanders: You all right?
Lynch: Man, I’m smooth.
Sanders: I like when you got off the plane with the Beast Mode and everything. You look like you’re ready to play, man.
Lynch: Yep, that’s what time it is.
Sanders: You’re kind of shy?
Sanders: You just don’t want to talk, really?
Lynch: I’m just about that action, boss
Sanders: You about to go get it. You just like to do it.
Lynch: That’s what it is. I ain’t never say no talking or nothing. I’ve been like that since I was little. I was raised like that.
Sanders: Well I respect it.
Lynch: Time to go get it. There’s no need to talk about it.
Sanders: You excited about the game?
Lynch: Hell yeah (laughter). Yeeeaahhh.
Sanders: These are real emotions, man.
Lynch: Yeah, that is.
Sanders: It’s on your back. They feel if they can stop you, they can stop this team.
Lynch: Well they’re going to have to stop all of us. You feel me?
Sanders: I feel you.
Lynch: We have some dogs.
Sanders: You don’t like podiums do you?
Lynch: That ain’t my thing.
Sanders: What is your thing?
Lynch: Laidback. Kick back. Mind my own business. Stay in my own lane.
Sanders: So, you’re just going to sit in the cut and just chill?
Lynch: Just kickback. Game time, though. I’ll be there.
Sanders: What do you like about this week?
Lynch: What I like about this week is this whole experience. Being able to have this whole opportunity.
Sanders: Does anything surprise you?
Lynch: Yeah, being here.
Sanders: It’s huge.
Lynch: It is.
Sanders: It’s what you dreamt of.
Lynch: It is and it’s right here in front of [us], too.
Sanders: You brought the whole family?
Lynch: They’re on the way. Yeah [they’re] going to be in the building.
Sanders: Marshall Faulk loves you, man.
Lynch: That’s huge. That’s huge. That’s a great, too.
Sanders: He respects you and he loves you. He loves your game. We all love your game. We love Beast Mode.
Lynch: That’s big time. Beast Mode loves and appreciates that.
Sanders: I’m going to let you go, man. I’m proud of you. Thank you for that.
