The Pro Football Writers of America issued a statement expressing their displeasure with Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and his lack of availability on media day. Lynch isn’t buying into it and the “bridge to fans” idea.

“I mean if y’all say y’all is our bridge from the players to the fans, and the fans really aren’t tripping, then what’s the point? What’s the purpose? They’ve got my back and I appreciate that, but I don’t get what’s the bridge then built for,” Lynch said.

Lynch said that the “12th Man,” as Seahawks fans are called, would support him even if he never talked to reporters.

“The 12s don’t have a problem with it. The people I play for on Sunday don’t have a problem with it. The media has a problem with it. It’s a problem if they choose to take something away from me for not doing it,” Lynch said.

He has a point, media doesn’t really ask about what the fans are interested in and media day is mainly a circus anyways.
