Marshawn Lynch showed up to Super Bowl Media Day on Tuesday with only one phrase in mind: "I'm just here so I won't get fined."

The Seattle Seahawks running back spouted the sentence in response to nearly every single question he received from assembled reporters — by Deadspin's count, 25 times.

"Hey I'm just here so I don't get fined," Lynch says at the beginning of his five-minute sit-down. "So ya'll can sit here and ask me all the questions ya'll want to, I'm gonna answer with the same answer so, ya'll can shoot if ya'll please."

Reporters ask about Lynch's relationship with the NFL.
