Marshawn Lynch could face $50k fine for MediaDay no-show

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch may not attend the designated Media Day ahead of the SuperBowl - a decision which could cost him $50,000 in fines.

The media-shy running back hasn't spoked to the press all season, and is not expected to break that habit ahead of the Seahwaks Superbowl clash against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Speaking in a rare interview, Lynch says he shies away from doing interviews because he feels uncomfortable in that environment.

"If you're forced to do something, it's not as good as if you choose to do it," Lynch told NFL Media columnist Michael Silver last week. "So no, I won't have a lot of interesting things to say.

"When you're forced to do something and you know it, it kind of just takes away from the whole experience of what it could be if (it were) natural. So, I'll probably give forced answers."

The Seahwaks star was not included on the list of Seahawks players assigned to speak to the media - although that is not a guarantee that he won't turn up.

Lynch has already been hit with a $50,000 fine for not speaking to the media this season, and could be forced to pay up a similar amount if he doesn't fulfil his media commitments this week.

"Football's just always been hella fun to me, not expressing myself in the media," Lynch continued in his interview with Silver. "I don't do it to get attention; I just do it cause I love that (expletive)."
