Yesterday, we told you about how Marshawn Lynch all but refused to talk to the media during Super Bowl media day. Players from both the Broncos and the Seahawks were required to speak with the media for an hour on Tuesday afternoon. But Lynch stood in front of reporters for less than seven minutes and then spent the rest of the time standing off in a corner by himself.
"I'm just 'bout that action, boss," he told NFL Network's Deion Sanders when he asked Lynch why he wasn't interested in taking part in media day.
And as it turns out, his attitude towards the press didn't change overnight. Just check out the video above, which features Lynch talking to reporters earlier this afternoon. Once again, he spent just six minutes talking to them—and then walked out of a press conference before it was over. And he made it very clear that he is not interested in talking to the media this week.
Prior to today, we thought that maybe Lynch suffers from some kind of social anxiety or something that makes it difficult for him to talk in front of large crowds. But after seeing this, it appears as though he just feels slighted by something that the media did to him in the past. It'll be interesting to see how the NFL handles his behavior, though. They let him off the hook yesterday and didn't fine him. But if this continues to be a distraction, they might not let him off again so easy.
