Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch took being a spoiled brat to another level.
Lynch, who is famous not only for his football skills but also for the fact that he dislikes the media, came to “Media Day” for the NFL’s Super Bowl under the pressure of a $500,000 fine if he didn’t show, according to ESPN.
But the NFL couldn’t control what he was going to say.
Lynch arrived at his podium and answered 29 questions from members of the media with some variation of the phrase, “I’m here so I don’t get fined.”
Then, after 4 minutes and 51 seconds he said “time,” stood and walked out.
Ironically, he may get fined after all because he wore a “beast mode” hat during the session.
While most Americans get up and work hard for eight or more hours a day to make about 1/1000th of what Lynch makes to run a football and answer questions, hopefully he will pardon us if we don’t feel his pain.
The feelings on Twitter were mixed.

Yes Marshawn Lynch acted like a jerk, but the @nfl is more concerned about punishing him over a hat than a team for cheating. Makes sense

Good for Marshawn Lynch. Screw the Commish and screw the media that asks questions when they know he isn't going to give answers.
