  • I'm sorry but English is wrong.

    Marshawn doesn't like to speak.. and hes only showing up to these things to avoid a ridiculous fine... fining a guy 100K because he doesn't want to talk to a camera, when there are plenty of athletes that will and do enjoy doing that, is asinine. Let the guy skip media day.. it makes him more comfortable and then these precious journalists who are throwing a hissy fit wont have their precious time wasted as they ask completely stupid questions.

    There are reasons why every ex-player is defending Marshawn, and those who are pouting are media members. The players get it.

  • Thought this was a pretty solid tweet:

    Players like Lynch give mind/body/soul over to the game, creating compelling product which creates our jobs. Owes media nothing. We owe him.

    It simply is not in his make up.

    So it's OK for Lynch to do what he wants and ignore (and disrespect) the media.

    But the media aren't allowed to do exactly the same thing by doing what they want and responding?

    If he'd just answered the questions like 105 other players yesterday nobody would be saying anything negative in the media.

    He brought this on himself and we have to accept that.


    But the cycle doesn't stop there.

    Lynch can do what he wants
    the media can do what they want
    but we are also free to do what we want, and that's to say the media in general are a bunch of idiots.

  • If I hear one more media member say it's his job to connect to the fans (I'm looking at you Clayton), I'm gonna lose my mind.

    The fans don't care! We love him being the way he is.

    Nice. Throw the local media under the bus and ensure Lynch will never talk to them throughout the season. Media is coming off real well in this whole debacle.

  • I wonder what would happen if the Seahawks won the super bowl and then after the game did interviews with everyone but espn.

    It would be hilarious watching espn freak out.

    Also stfu john clayton you alien chimp looking fool. You look like you should be covering golf instead of football. I liked clayton before this but he's acted like such a tool over this that I'll never pay attention to anything he says again.

  • Media guys, such as Clayton, need to understand that Marshawn isn't impressed with their status as a reporter. #24 is in New York area to handle the job at hand for his team and the 12th man. Simple isn't it. If Deon Sanders/ Real Rob can get something from the Beast maybe they should ask Deon and Rob how to approach Lynch. The bottom line if ya can't handle doing your job...Next man up!

  • Since the other thread was locked I am reposting this here.....

    Personally, I couldn't care less about the national media for the most part, but BooHoo Clayton :428226_SadEmoticon: has too much airtime in Seahawks Nation and it's my right to state a case for shunning a poor excuse for a journalist.

    BooHoo Clayton :428226_SadEmoticon: clearly has not built a relationship with Marshawn over the years that he has had an opportunity to. Building relationships takes work and time and trust. What has BooHoo Clayton :428226_SadEmoticon: done to develop a relationship like this? I am assuming nothing.

    This whole issue is more a reflection on the assumed privilege and entitlement that BooHoo Clayton :428226_SadEmoticon: believes he has and perhaps the forty years of this entitlement has created a laziness in his professionalism. Listening to him whine about his right and using his influence (whatever influence that is) to make this into a story is ridiculous and mindboggling.

    And now what athlete would even trust him? You shouldn't bite the hand that feeds you or soon you won't get fed. BooHoo Clayton :428226_SadEmoticon: has become no different from all of the other dim-witted shock-personality-pseudo talking heads (Skip Bayless et. al.)

    BooHoo Clayton :428226_SadEmoticon: not only bit Marshawn, his colleagues and the Seahawks' organization but he also bit (I suspect) a majority of the Seahawks' fan base.

    It's your right to disagree with me and many others (good for you), and it's BooHoo Clayton :428226_SadEmoticon: 's right to continue to make himself a part of a story that is truly a non-story.

    So Boycott BooHoo Clayton :428226_SadEmoticon: !

  • “The 12s don’t have a problem with it. The people I play for on Sunday don’t have a problem with it. The media has a problem with it. It’s a problem if they choose to take something away from me for not doing it,” Lynch said.


    Agree 100% Marshawn.

  • On a lighter note, I thought Pete Carroll handled the media this morning like an experienced master.

    He fielded two or three negative and pointed accusations about the Seahawks with dignity and grace. And then when finally asked for something positive, handled his response about Peyton Manning with equal dignity and grace.

    As a man that once was the subject of so much media scorn and character assassination, Pete Carroll sets an exemplary example.

    Agreed. Carroll has made me extremely proud he's our coach all week.

    He can at least man-up and play the game.

    I'm sorry, just can't feel bad for him and I don't think he'd appreciate the sympathy anyway. He's a warrior and can stand on his own two feet.

  • It really seems to me that many of you will blindly defend a guy because he is on our team. The fact of the matter is he signed a contract agreeing to comply with league rules. So dealing with the media is part of his job. He was not forced to choose this career path, he could have chosen one where public speaking wasn't involved. He didn't, so I really don't understand how so many of you feel bad for the guy for being expected to do the job he was hired to do?

    The way he has conducted himself has been extremely selfish as well. This has become a huge story nationally and has been a distraction from the good attention this team deserves. Same goes for Sherman's immature rant after the last game.

    Sounds like a message of intolerance to me. The Seahawks are an organization that want it's members to be themselves. Individuality is going to draw criticism from intolerant interest groups.

    Isn't intolerance an indicator of immaturity?

    Marshawn was available and he complied. The media vultures created a non-story from Marshawn. This is not a story except in how pathetic much of the media has become to draw a paycheck.

You decide you don't like making coffee. Is it a message of intolerance if you are expected to do the duties you were hired to do?

    He complied with league rules. He was there, right? He gave answers, right?

    What else you got, genius?


    I couldn't find clarity if being available for 6 minutes of an hour long media event was in compliance?

    Sounds like a message of intolerance to me. The Seahawks are an organization that want it's members to be themselves. Individuality is going to draw criticism from intolerant interest groups.

    Isn't intolerance an indicator of immaturity?


    Intolerance? Wow. So if you were hired to be a secretary and before you were hired your job description was clearly described to you. One of your duties is to make coffee in the morning. You decide you don't like making coffee. Is it a message of intolerance if you are expected to do the duties you were hired to do?


    If that secretary was afraid of the coffee maker because she was burned by one as a child and she clearly beat the other applicants in all other qualifications so she was hired anyway, don't you think it would be ridiculous to force her to make coffee.

    He was available for longer than that. He stood off to the side. Sanders interviewed him. The league stated he met the requirement.

    Not if she agreed to do it when she was hired.

    Tell us more about your thoughts on Russell Wilson and the "worst QBs you've ever seen."


    Cleary you couldn't refute a thing I said and really felt the need to respond :roll:


    This is a very overused (and stupid) argument. Given a completely unrealistic choice between making millions of dollars or finding another profession, based on a small clause in the contract regarding media sessions, who the hell isn't going to sign the contract?

    Some media dip shits are using the contractual obligation as leverage and turning a non-story (a guy who doesn't want to talk) into the biggest story of the week? Who is actually failing to do their job here? Was this the biggest story on ESPN all season when Kraeper gave short, smug answers to the media? No.

    You being incapable of seeing the real problem shows how little you've actually thought about it. Welcome to my ignore list.

    If she was an All-Pro secretary in every other respect and never called in sick or slacked off at work, then only a completely moronic and self-absorbed boss would give a crud about whether or not she brought him coffee every morning. Some people can see the bigger picture. Some are too obsessed with their own ego.

    That's the part that bothers me. It's clearly bothering him and it's a distraction (for him). If I were Pete, I'd be in the league's ear about it. Plenty of other guys willing to talk to the media...

  • That was uncomfortable and bordering on cruel. Marshawn is a grown man but some folks don't like talking about themselves and hate the thought of being spotlight rangers. Clayton and the rest of those oxygen stealing douche' bags continuously grilling him on why he doesn’t like to speak to the media or saying things public is pathetic, wreaking of unprofessionalism and evidence of the absence of civility within the industry. Contractual engagements be damned, you surround the guy like he’s next up for the pyramid at Abu Ghraib and are incensed he doesn’t appear happy to talk to you. F you Clayton, your dated predilection for funk and your call for a $100,000 fine. I’m glad Mike Rob was there but that was sickening.

    It's pretty sad and pathetic that journalists even have a unified "side," a side that all bands together like the mafia to try to bully their way into getting what they want.

    I still remember when Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy went off on a media member for writing an unprofessional article about one of his players, something that by all rights looked like a noble act, and the media immediately goes to work at defaming him as the unprofessional one, etc.

    They're a bunch of jackals and very few operate with any sense of integrity. It's lovely that anyone would want to defend such a group.

    Yep, there are a bunch of Donkos fans that are clamoring for Marshawn to get nailed with a big fine, he sure as hell doesn't need for one of his own to roll over on him to boot.
    Some players are comfortable with talking, and some players are concerned with doing, and yet there are others who are content to do both.
    Sherman gets slammed for speaking out, and Lynch get's slammed, AND FINED for saying nothing.
    The reactions by the Seahawks fans for the most part, is pro-Sherman, and pro-lynch, while the reactions by non-Seahawks fans are almost unanimously negative, so who (outside the Seahawks fandom) really gives a shit about these assholes that keep prodding.

  • Man, I feel bad for Marshawn. You can tell he is SO uncomfortable with the media attention. I really hope he saves up this frustration and takes it out on the Denver D on Sunday. And I mean absolutely no disrespect to him, but there are moments it almost looks like he is going to start crying. I was a teacher for six years and I saw the same looks on kids faces when they had to give an oral report and were terrified and very uncomfortable.

    He isn't doing this out of malice or anything, I think he just feels SUPER uncomfortable with it. It wouldn't be out of the question for him to have a serious/medical anxiety issue.

    Yeah, but you got to admit that the Media douche nozzles ( and probably bronco fans) get to shine, while berating an ALL-PRO eh?

    A few older ones he did. Fans didn't take kindly to what he said.

    So...He's damned if he does, and damned if he don't?

    Maybe Marshawn should just give a $100K to shut these assholes up, instead of the charities that he's giving to, because you know that the League would probably put the money to good use, like, lining the pockets of some jillionaire.
