Default Marshawn Lynch, what I think...

After watching the Jan 29th video I am pretty sure he suffers from some way more than normal anxiety when having to be in front of big crowds, around a group of people he does not know. I actually feel bad for the guy, for me personally it was hard to watch. I wish they would excuse him from the mandatory press meetings. Here is the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1KxifysLsk

I don't have a problem with his demeanor at all. Those people in the room ain't his friends, and he's just there to play football. Some people require a little emotional honesty from folks asking them questions. Marshawn happens to be one of them.

The "boss" line is classic. Speaks to the prison camp the NFL can be.

I don't have a problem with his demeanor either, I just personally think that he does not speak to the media because he has some pretty tough anxiety when having to be in front of or around a bunch of strangers. From around the 40 second mark until the time that the FB comes in to save him I can just see how nervous he is. As far as boss...when he is interviewed by a person and not a media circus, when he is comfortable, he uses the term a lot less from what I have seen.

Not very many prison camps where you can make 10 times the median HH income or many many times more. Also how many prison camps can you just walk away from if you want?

I agree, he reminds me of Ricky Williams when dealing with the media. I'm thinking some type of anxiety as well.

Default Re: Marshawn Lynch, what I think...

dis is dumb IMO forcing players to talk to the media NFL is trying to turn into the WWE

I feel if Lynch does not feel like talking to people he does not know then he shouldn't have to be forced 2

he may have anxiety who knows if that's the case the NFL should be imbressed to forcing him to 2 do this

Looks like he was on some 'medicine' to calm him down a bit...he still had nervous ticks though. Like shaking his leg up and down.

Why should he expose himself to a bunch of buzzards and vultures? They don't want anything but a story they can run with which hurts someone. It's not like these are reporters asking the questions. There are precious few of those anymore. They are gossips and slanderers.

Default Re: Marshawn Lynch, what I think...

I cant believe how some people there on youtube think he is high while giving an interview. He obviously suffers from anxiety and does not want to be there in front of the cameras. Not everyone wants the spotlight. As long as he gets it done on the field who cares if he speaks to these vultures or not. Just the NFL trying to squeeze every little penny they can from their "product". If Im Pete Carroll I will do whatever it takes to keep my star RB focused and away from those idiots.

I think I'd limit interview requirements to before the season and after the season. Anything more is counterproductive.

The "Press" is too arrogant, thinking they have a right to interview you or take stalker style photos. They have a right to publish what you willingly tell them, not to invade your private space. Now what you do in public is another matter. That is the purview of harassment when they continue pursuing someone after being told to back off.

Your post has nothing to do with what I said so I'm not sure why you quoted me but I think it's a mistake

It could be. I thought you were supporting mandatory interviews because of his salary. But I could easily be wrong.

It seems pretty clear my post was addressing the rediculous term "prison camp" but yes you were wrong as I never mentioned or ref to mandatory interviews

That FB is Mike Robinson and he owns bones when it comes to interviews and stuff.

Sorry then. I jumped to a conclusion that it was about more. I read between the lines and it should have been blank.

The NFL is intruding on freedom of speech rights. Unfortunately they can get away with this, just like most other corps/companies can.

I just wish the Texans would've traded a 4th rd pick for Lynch. Many on this MB didn't want to make that trade at the time. There's no denying that Lynch is a top 5 RB in the NFL. The guy is a beast. Nah, on 2nd thought the Texans don't need those type of guys on their team.

At that particular time Lynch had been involved in a hit-and-run while not being terrible on the Bills, he was a guy that was getting just over 1000 yards and about 7 or 8 TD's a season.

He has also received a DUI since being on the Seahawks so eh.

Freedom of speech? Not even close, go take a look at the amendment again.
