Default Re: Wes Welker fires 1st shot (at Richard Sherman)

Has Lynch explained why he doesn't like dealing with the media? Have to say if I were a player, I'd probably be closer to how he and James Harrison are but that's because I probably have some social anxiety issues. I think I heard that Ricky Williams has Social Anxiety Disorder.

It could be any number of factors.

Lynch grew up in 'inner city' Oakland, so maybe that's his social wheelhouse?

He's also had numerous off-field issues in the past and he may be overly conscious of it (paranoid of his image).

I believe I heard that he explained his actions by saying something along the lines of, 'I let my play on the field speak for itself.'

If true, that's 'classy'.

ive heard on TV that he has beef with the local media in seattle.

also that he has been made fun of and talked shit about the way he talks.

it can only be described as very heavy ghetto slang.

he may not be dumb but he certainly isnt as articulate as richard sherman...

the best interview yesterday was him and d. sanders-



"thats big time. beastmode love... and appreciates that"

Yes, he did.

He would do post-game interviews w/ his helmet on. The reporters thought that he was being arrogant (or obtuse), but in actuality, he was scared to death to talk to a group of them all at once.

Joking aside, the weed helped calm him down.

And, made him want an Abbazabba.

Pot grower’s ‘Beast Mode’ strain packs punch

With bartenders naming cocktails after Seahawks players, it’s no surprise a local pot grower has come up with a strain called “Beast Mode,” in tribute to Marshawn Lynch.

“It’s extremely strong,” said Nate “Diggity” Johnson, owner of the Queen Anne Cannabis Club, which carries the strain named after the burly Seahawks running back.

Most of the weed sold in Seattle medical-marijuana dispensaries has a THC content between 12 and 20 percent. An indica-dominant strain of the OG Kush family, Beast Mode has a THC content of 17.6, according to testing by Analytical 360, Johnson said.

The weed hits you like its namesake, he added. “Marshawn has gears when he’s running and it’s kind of like that. It has a little bit of a slow start and then kicks in.”

The group of growers that produced Beast Mode call themselves Zion Gardens. Johnson explained the growers came up with the name after cultivating a strain that was supposed to be “Girl Scout Cookies.” After harvesting, the growers realized it wasn’t. And when they tried some, according to Johnson, one said, “‘It hit me like Beast Mode.’”

Beast Mode is the only strain Johnson knows about named after a Seahawk. He said his collective also has carried Seahawks-themed pot-laced cupcakes that quickly sold out.

According to the collective’s menu, Beast Mode costs $13 per gram or $150 for a half-ounce. Those are the “donation” rates, Johnson said, as collectives are technically not supposed to sell pot.

Donations pay for employee salaries and the cost of running the dispensary, he said.

Johnson said he and the grower are aware Lynch has registered trademarks on the term “Beast Mode.” According to ESPN, Lynch has trademarks on clothing and hats and has trademarks pending on sunglasses, headphones, bracelets and cleats.

“Since it’s for donation-based medical cannabis, we feel his compassion towards it will make it acceptable,” Johnson said of the Beast Mode marijuana.

Lynch’s agent did not respond to a message.

He makes some very good points about the sports talk media getting chapped at someone who does not talk to them that is based on their egos and not upon any detriment to the fans

“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.

If Seattle is smart, they don't let Sherman cover Welker. (Swallow your pride, Sherman.)
Seattle plays 3-deep coverage, and Sherman is almost always on the left side. I don't think the Hawks will take the bait from the midget.
