The Marshawn Lynch obscene gesture of the week is, ‘I’m Just Here So I Won’t Get Fined’, these are the words that have gone viral in the United States when he attended the Super Bowl media day press conference.
American football star for the Seattle Seahawks was reportedly threatened with a $500,000 fine from the NFL if he did not attend the Super Bowl media day press conference, and this is where the fun began.
The Seattle Seahawks’ star running back star did attend the conference and said he was there so he didn’t get fined. Marshawn Lynch said, “Oh, it’s starting? Well, then let me start. Hey, I’m just here so I don’t get fined. 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.”
But when reporters starting asking him questions he replied to each of them with, ‘I’m Just Here So I Won’t Get Fined’.
A league source contacted ESPN’s Ed Werder saying the NFL threatened Lynch with a $500,000 fine if he didn’t turn up on media day. If you visit ESPN they report Lynch being fined previously for a similar gesture.
At the moment the video below has not gained a lot of views, but because Lynch is a man of few words the video that has gone viral and trending in YouTube is the ‘Exclusive Marshawn Lynch Interview with Kenny Mayne’ thanks to gaining 100,000+ new local views.
