Writers have filed a complaint regarding Lynch failing to sit at the podium for an hour this past Tuesday.

The Pro Football Writers of America, the official voice of pro football writers fighting and promoting for access to NFL personnel to best serve the public, is extremely disappointed in the lack of meaningful access to Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch at the Super Bowl XLVIII media day on Tuesday.

Several of our long-standing and high profile members were appalled by Mr. Lynch’s conduct and refusal to answer any questions

Well if several "high profile" football writers are appalled by Lynch not jumping at the chance to talk with them in their quest to "best serve the public" I guess that settles that
