Everyone knows Marshawn Lynch sat in front of microphones at Super Bowl XLIX media day just so he wouldn’t get fined. It turns out he had another fine stemming from his previous game that wasn’t previously disclosed.

ProFootballTalk reported that the Skittles-eating Seahawks running back was fined $ 75,000 for not talking with reporters after the NFC Championship Game. Lynch filed an appeal several months ago and only learned Tuesday that the appeals hearing will take place Thursday, according to the report.


Lynch had been fined $ 20,000 for grabbing his crotch during the same game.

He lost an appeal of a $ 100,000 fine in January for not talking to the media. Half of that fine was for not doing so after a game during the 2014 season. The other half was a fine from the previous season for the same infraction, which was suspended to give Lynch a chance to prove he could cooperate in the future.

Lynch isn’t averse to speaking to large crowds. Ravens running back Justin Forsett — who played with Lynch for three years at Cal and during the 2010 and 2011 seasons with Seattle — revealed Tuesday during a conference call with Ravens PSL owners that Lynch spoke at Forsett’s wedding and also danced with Forsett’s mom, according to a tweet posted on the Ravens’ official Twitter account.
