Marshawn Lynch’s Attempt to Avoid Fine Backfires

(null)

Marshawn Lynch was facing a 500k fine if he refused to to show up to media day and answer questions.

Lynch showed up, but continued his one phrase answers to each and every media question.

What he didn’t realize, was that his “Beast Mode” hat was an unauthorized brand, which may lead to a significant fine from the league.

I can picture 60 year old NFL executives sitting around the office, plotting a way to fine this guy.

“The hat! Let’s get him for the hat!”

“It’s his own brand. It’s technically not promoting an actual company brand or a competitor of an NFL endorsed product”

“The hat! Let’s just fine him for the hat!”
