Now there's also running back Lynch and his performance the past two days during media access times.
The league mandates participation in these events from all players and Lynch gave the media 6.5 minutes of nothing usable during Tuesday's media day and more of the same on Wednesday where he told the media that he was only attending the function to avoid being fined by the NFL.
All fans can determine on their own whether players should be obligated to speak with the press. The lack of cooperation actually hurts the fans as much if not more than it does the media as the fans want to hear from players on their favorite teams.
But it is an NFL rule and a part of the player contracts that they need to be available.
It all adds up to a couple of reasons why it seems that more football fans should be pulling for Denver instead of Seattle in this Super Bowl.
