Marshawn Lynch Skittles Press Conference Proves Marshawn Lynch CAN Speak in Multi-Word Sentences (Video)
Of course, the NFL insists he talk to members of the media anyway, and they made their position clear by fining him $100,000 earlier this season. So Marshawn Lynch capitulated…and started doing interviews where he gave the same one-word answer to every question. Then, when that routine got old, he moved on to two-word answers.
The thing is, though, it’s not that Marshawn Lynch doesn’t like talking. He just likes to do it on his own terms. And by “his own terms” I mean he doesn’t actually want to talk about football, and he wants to get paid for it.
Case in point: this Marshawn Lynch Skittles press conference. The guy has no problem opening up and sharing his thoughts for a candy commercial.
So take this lesson to heart, sports media. If you want Marshawn Lynch to talk to you at Super Bowl media day today, wrap a bag of skittles in a $50 bill and ask him about comets or something.
