  • Lynch To Appeal Fines

    (Renton, WA)  --  Seattle Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch plans to appeal the 100-thousand dollars in fines imposed on him by the NFL.  Lynch's agent, Doug Hendrickson, told NBC's Mike Florio that Lynch was sore following the Kansas City loss last Sunday, and elected to quickly change and walk to the team bus to lie down rather than stay and speak with reporters.  The NFL slapped Lynch with the fines Wednesday, saying he violated the league's media policy.  Half the 100-grand was assessed for Sunday's violation, and the other half is a holdover from last season.
