The NFL Fined Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch for not speaking with the press for so long, in response this is what Teammates Doug Baldwin and Richard Sherman had to say during their press conference.
  • Let me remind you, these two young men are Stanford Alumni.
  • Sherman: “You know, the other day, Marshawn Lynch got fined $100,000. Did you know that? $100,000. And it’s like, they wouldn’t have even paid him $100,000 if he had talked, if he had spoken. Doug, do you think they would have paid him $100,000?”
  • Baldwin: “No, they sure wouldn’t have!”
  • Sherman: “Jeez, Louise. But you know who does pay me a lot of money? Beats by Dre, the wonderful headphones that I wear.”
  • Baldwin: “I like those headphones.”
  • Sherman: “But the league doesn’t let me say anything about them. Doug, why is that?”
  • Baldwin: “I don’t know. Sounds kind of hypocritical to me.”
  • Sherman: “Yeah, sounds a little bit hypocritical! It seems like we’re in a league where they say: ‘Players, you know, you don’t endorse any alcohol. Please don’t endorse alcohol; no DUIs please.’ But yet, a beer sponsor is their biggest sponsor! Doug, how do you feel about that?”
  • Baldwin: “Like I said: Sounds very hypocritical.”
  • Sherman: “Yeah, it’s interesting. It’s very, very interesting. It’s crazy. But, you know, in this offseason, you have a good time. You get to wear Neff shades, you get to wear Neff beanies, you get to eat some Campbell’s Soup. My girl was sick this week; she got some Campbell’s Soup in her and, you know, that’s always good. So kids, when you get sick, be sure to get your Campbell’s Soup in you. It’s always a great deal, very healthy, very good for you. Chicken noodle soup around this time — it’s flu season.”
  • Baldwin: “Speaking of health, how do you feel about the NFL making me play two games in five days?”
  • Sherman: “Oh my god! Jeez! I almost didn’t realize that, because they’ve been talking about player safety so much. And it’s like, two games in five days doesn’t seem like you care about player safety. It’s a little bit much for me. “But Doug, you look pretty healthy. You look like you’ve been having a good time. You look like you’ve been eating good. What kind of sandwiches have you been having?”
  • Baldwin: “You know, I like to eat fresh, so I eat my Subway. And I also like to wash my Subway down with a bottle of Martinelli’s.”
  • Sherman: “Oh my god, Martinelli’s? Sounds like a great beverage! “It’s fun. It’s fun to use your time in the NFL to speak about something you care about, right? Right? Because then you don’t get fined $100,000. You don’t get fined at all for this. This is how they want us to talk, right? This is what they want us to do: They want us to advertise, right Doug?”
  • Baldwin: “Sounds about right to me!”
  • Sherman: “Alright! Gotta make some money. Gotta not get fined. Anybody got any questions?”
  • Baldwin: “Nope, I don’t think so!”
  • Sherman: “Alright!”
  • Baldwin (to media): “Have a good day.”
  • Sherman (to media): “Thank you.”
