Daily Madden: Why All Players And Coaches Are Required To Participate In Media Day At The Super Bowl
A rundown of Media Day at the Super Bowl and why most players would probably do away with the event altogether.
Just kidding–I love pretty much every aspect of my job. One of them is getting to ask questions. Like, “What is the NFL’s thing?” Why does this multibillion dollar organization feel compelled to try to turn guys who carry a football for a living into public speakers?
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who has been fined for avoiding the NFL’s press availability requirements, fulfilled his commitment at the Super Bowl media day Tuesday by repeating the same answer to the throng of reporters at his podium.
Players are required to attend Super Bowl Media Day, but some clearly don’t like being there. Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch said very little in his brief appearance, telling reporters he likes game action more than talk.
It’s about more than football at Super Bowl Media Day. John Madden was watching Tuesday.
49ers defensive back Chris Culliver has apologized for his anti-gay comments at Super Bowl Media Day. The KCBS Radio morning crew asked John Madden if the wide-spread attention to Culliver’s remarks might affect the team’s focus.
With the game preparations pretty much complete, John says the most successful teams learn to accept and enjoy the week’s activities and not let them become a distraction.
