On Nov. 19, the NFL fined Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch $100,000 for refusing to talk to the media following a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
This week, Lynch answered questions after beating up on division rival Arizona, but did it on his own terms.
Seattle and head coach Pete Carroll might be getting tired of Beast Mode’s good-natured pranks, but I, for one, am not. This wasn’t detrimental to the team at all, and I’m all for Marshawn taking a few jabs at the NFL’s top brass.
Lynch is a huge part of the Seahawks offense, and is a great guy away from football. Roger Goodell can do his best to force Lynch to partake in the NFL’s dog and pony post-game show, but the man is only concerned with one thing: getting it done on the field.

I only wish he had answered “what song did you listen to on the bus ride to the stadium” with “Yeah, by Usher.” Seemed like a no-brainer to me.
