In today’s NFL, the role of the running back has changed. Not only are running backs splitting downs, the position is considered pretty disposable, with most teams moving on from guys as they near the age of 30.
Unlike the Seattle Seahawks, every team doesn’t have the “12th man” as fans that are screaming at the top of their lungs distracting the opponent.
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch handled his 4 minutes at the podium for Super Bowl media day like he has recent interviews. With one phrase for whatever question presented to him, “I’m only here so i don’t get fined”
I believe in the old adage, choose your battles wisely. In my eyes, strategic attacks usually work out better than social media blitzes. But the wife of Miami Dolphins CB Brent Grimes took a different approach on Twitter Monday.
The NFL is focused on convincing Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch to fall in line. In addition to his battle with the media, they also aren’t happy with Lynch’s “Hold my D**k” touchdown celebrations. They’ve fined him, and now the plan is to penalize the Seahawks if he does it during the Super Bowl.
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has lost a lot of money in fines this season. Most of Beast Mode’s fines has been related to him “skirting” his media obligations. But today the NFL hit Lynch with a $20,000 fine for his “hold my di*k” post-touchdown celebration.
Is this spygate the sequel? The New England Patriots are in hot water for alleged shady tactics once again. The NFL has found that 11 of the 12 Patriots footballs used in Sunday’s AFC title game were under-inflated by 2 lbs each.
