While people still bug the Seahawks for not handing off to Marshawn Lynch for a surefire Super Bowl-winning touchdown, the NFL is still bugging Lynch for his press-averse persona. Lynch got himself another fine before the season even starts.
After Seattle toppled the Packers and Seahawks Nation was good and merry, Lynch again refused to talk to the press. For this act, the NFL fined Lynch $75,000.
