12th Man For Marshawn Lynch
1. FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS?!? SERIOUSLY?!?
2. Has anyone considered that Marshawn has a fear or problem with public speaking? You know, like the other 74% of the population? Watch the body language in this video and decide for yourself. Is Marshawn being difficult, or would he rather be home jamming thumbtacks through his toenails to avoid having to speak to a room full of strangers?!?
I think it is absurd that this man has to pay the NFL a fine of this magnitude and further, be forced to speak when he doesn't want to. $50K? Under what other circumstance would a player be forced to pay such an obscene amount of money? Just because the man has money, doesn't mean he should be a target! PLEASE! I have started this campaign in the hopes that every 12th Man will donate at least $1.00 to cover the amount of the fine imposed on Marshawn by the NFL. I will personally deliver the check at the end of the campaign, along with the message that the 12th Man has your back. Does Marshawn need this money? No. But I think it would be a good time to let Marshawn know, that we don't need his interviews or his thoughts to appreciate the amazing talent he is, and the contribution he makes to our team. And that we recognize the injustice that has been done to him, and we will not stand for it. What Marshawn does with the money is not my concern - maybe he will pay it forward and donate our collections to a non-profit that helps people overcome their fear of public speaking!!! GO HAWKS and GO 12th MAN!!!
Please join this campaign: http://chn.ge/1cv5ied This petition is to stop the NFL from making it mandatory to speak to the media.
Anything helps please
I don't want my money back !! Bottom line use it for this !! Loren great job ! Marshawn is a great man doing great things
Loren keep your head up, amazing things can still happen! If for some reason all of your hard work does not reach $50,000.00 , I am still donating my portion to a foundation that I work with. I will put it in honor of the both of you;0) Stay strong...from one of the other 12th women
I based $31 off 20,344 so obviously if people donate more then that figure changes but it guarantees 50k.
I emailed some local companies. We will see if the respond. Also for everyone who already contributed (971) donated $31 more dollars we would reach our goal. I'm down with that.
Or has anyone talked to century link and ask if they could put up collection locations at the game the linking them into the site
I know this is the 12th man trying to make it. But i wouldn't mind seeing fellow teammates donate.
Why would it "ALL" go away? Lynch said he would match what ever numbers we got. When i talked to him on the phone he said " I will match and donate to a charity in Seattle! Don't let the 49er Whiners get you down. I have been working hard on this as well. I am not going to give up hope. What ever we met shouldn't be " GONE" it goes to charity. I am still waiting to hear back from the people that i have called... Have faith we have 5 days left!
Well Loren you did a great job - lots more than I would have and yes the post said all or nothing - I don't think most if us would mind if we donated what we gave, but ya know there would be a squeaky wheel out there -
YES, HE DID!
I believe that what ever amount we end up with should go to charity. Not just IF we reach our goal. Marshawn said he'd match whatever we raised!!!! GO HAWKS!
Radio station done, Wenatchee world done, Billboard for the support of the " HAWKS" in the works..... BOOM BOOM !!!!!!! Once i start something i don't stop!
BOOM BOOM !!!!!!!! Lets get the goal to "QUAKE" We are going to the bowl baby and if every one spreads the word we can reach the goal... Talk to your friends,Co-workers ect.... I am going to call places and ask for them to help us met this goal! Have a nice day everyone! "BEAST YOU ROCK" SEATTLE SEAHAWKS you guys are the "BEST" in the NFL! I can't wait for this game with the 49er whiners..... GO HAWKS
24 k sounds like a fine realistic goal - we were definitely heard (as usual). :)
Reminding people this is going to charity and being matched by lynch. Lets do this
I think we should get to 24k!
For all those going on about money and how we should feel bad for donating to this cause. 1. It was about the stupidity of the fine and excessive amount. 2. Show of support as fans (Best fans in the NFL) 3. We know our Seahawks, they dont turn their backs on their fans or their community. If those of you who only read half of whats posted you might have missed the part this is all going to charity (if 50k is met) and if its not its getting returned to the fans and Lynch is matching the amount made what ever it will be and donating it.
