    Lol at Clayton. Nobody gives a damn about your article or interview. We'll watch the game and none of this will make a difference.


    thing is marshawn could've gone up and said nothing. Instead Clayton gets to use his soapbox to go on his rants and say stupid things making his job easier. he should be thanking ML.

    Yet he still wants ML to be fined 100 grand or more.

    don't be on the sidelines JC or ML may truck you on his way out of bounds.
    most importantly though... We don't care about his interviews. We are in NY to win a game, and unfortunately, Mr. Mackey is not what stands between us and the prize.

    Sports media is essentially worthless outside of guys who scoop transactions. Otherwise, we get better information and analysis from bloggers that aren't part of the old guard.

    Nicely said!

    I know this is sarcasm and Claton pissed me off with his whining too, but you may not be aware that Clayton's wife is in a wheelchair due to advanced Multiple Sclerosis. .. as such, I think the joke is kind of in poor taste.

    That sucks. Not sure if people get better from that but hope she does get better anyhow.

  • Btw at Pete's first presser in new York, he only had good rapport with Danny O'Neil. He didn't pretend to know any of the other local yahoos. Thought that was pretty sweet.

  • Personally I loved Marshawn's interview with Prime... that was the real deal there. But I have to say my opinion has changed considerably since hearing Marshawn's and Clayton's comments...

    In my opinion, Marshawn's stock has gone even higher and he is the epitome of heart and toughness. He plays his heart out for this team and for this city... I salute your effort and attitude dude

    Clayton...well I have heard a few too many comments from him lately where he seems to think he is above it all and looking down at some of these players. So my Clayton stock value is falling fast and I may just turn him off when I hear he is next up on the radio. He has pretty much lost my interest.

  • sc85sis wrote:Just looked at the CBA to see exactly what language is in there regarding player appearances, etc.

    ARTICLE 51 MISCELLANEOUS

    Section 3. Appearances: No Club may unreasonably require a player to appear on radio or television or other news media (including internet and print).

    Section 4. Promotion: The NFLPA will use its best efforts to ensure that the players cooperate with the Clubs and the news media (including television, radio, internet, print) in reasonable promotional activities on behalf of the Clubs and the NFL.


    That's it. It doesn't say they have to appear or speak for the duration of a press conference or media day. It simply says the NFLPA will do their best to make sure guys appear and cooperate. Now you can certainly make the argument that Marshawn hasn't put a lot of effort into it--including today. But the NFL has already said today that he met his obligation, so the media hacks can just get off their high horse now.


    I really think that Clayton pulled that 45 minute thing out if his ass. Thanks for doing the research. I'd like to know where Clayton's 45 minute remark came from.

    I think Clayton thinks he is doing gods work. This is football! It's entertainment! Mr Clayton it's not all that serious. Your job is not all that serious. If you want to do something serious go out and find corrupt politicians and make sure congress and the president are responsible to the people.

  • The dumb questions asked to these players are what is embarrassing. I don't understand why they believe its their right to interview them. They should be lucky that these guys ever talk to them. Cause if they stopped talking to them they would have nothing.
    If .NET did not exist I would get so much more work done during the day!

  • I was pretty ticked when I first heard this but I'm going to give the guy a pass on this one. As much as we all know Cortez Kennedy deserved to be in the hall of fame, he would never have gotten there without Clayton's advocacy. I will always be thankful for that.

  • Just got home and started listening. John is way out of line in my opinion. Fine him 100k, then another 100k in another few days. b-b-b-but-t-t-t your diminishing the v-v-v-v-value of m-m-m-m-media dayyyyyyyyy :'(

    Somewhere in John Clayton's universe - its better that Marshawn answers a question horribly or be a total jerk than to not answer at all.

    John Clayton would rather a media day full of terrell owens than marshawn lynches. This isn't a surprise, but it goes to show what a shameless whoore John Clayton is.


    >>> Later in the episode (9:36ish) and John goes on to give the media credit for potentially turning Micheal Bennett into a celebrity.

    It is. He clearly lost his temper. The problem is once Clayton stakes out a position (even an extreme one) he will almost never back off from it or admit he was wrong in any degree.

  • Love Marshawn man... He knows what its really about "My fans love me regardless. They love the Seahawks. They just want to make sure I show up and perform. They don't care what I have to say"

    We do care, because he's a character and a lot smarter than he's given credit. But at the end of the day, we, as fans, only care about you when you're out there doing work

    I work with a guy from Marshawn's neighborhood and played the interview for him. He LOVED it and told me that's how people

    I have no problems with #24. He's as real as it gets. If you don't like the way he interviews, don't bother him.

    Lynch won't get fined for using the "S" word. Under FCC regulations, that not Lynch's lookout. That applies to the broadcasters. In the case of the NFL network, they are IIRC a cable network and thus not subject to FCC regs. I notice that the word was beeped out for normal network transmission.

  • Clayton is being a dope.
    What I got from Marshawn, is that he's ready to win a championship, and really doesn't see the need for all the rest.
    I'm glad he's thinking about the game, and not whether John Clayton has some sand in his Vag!
    Beastmode is ready to roll, and punish the puny Donko's defense!
    Remember back in week 2 when Sherm was wired up, and he and Marshawn were talking on the sideline?
    And Sherm had to remind him he was wearing a wire...
    Marshawn said back then that he didn't care about none of that...'We're going to the Superb Owl!'
    And they did!
