12th Man For Marshawn Lynch

For those of you who are not aware, our beloved "Beast Mode" Marshawn Lynch has been fined $50,000. by the NFL for refusing to speak to the media in 2013, which is a reported violation of his NFL contract. I have a few things to say about this:

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!!!
