Marshawn Lynch: Incompetent or Intelligent?
Today speculations are being thrown around that he will get fined for his attire he had on instead of his few choice words. He wore a “Beast Mode” hat to his press conference yesterday and today, instead of his licensed hat he is supposed to wear. Lynch will more than likely be fined for the hat because the NFL is no stranger with Lynch when it comes to fines.
But these past two days really raise some questions about how Lynch has been acting toward the media. Is he doing this to get attention for himself or is it to draw attention away from the Patriots “Deflate-Gate”? Or is he truly just that ignorant in how he acts?
Personally, I think that Lynch knows exactly what he is doing and what he has been doing for the past two days. Lynch has single handedly taken all the attention from ALL sources of media, not just the sports world, and has refocused it on himself. We have shifted from talking about the Patriots for the past week, to one single line that Lynch said repetitively yesterday. He also introduced a new line today, “You know why I’m here.” Lynch has given the media two single lines and that’s it, yet it has snowballed into the biggest Super Bowl topic of discussion.
Lynch knows what he is trying to do, which is draw attention away from the Patriots, but the way in which he is doing it is the most pompous, arrogant way anyone could.
