Marshawn Lynch -- Media Shy Because of Us?

Discussion topic for y'all: Are WE the reason Marshawn Lynch is so media shy?

There's been a lot of coverage in the press about Marshawn Lynch's reluctance to speak with the media. Today being Media Day, ESPN and SI both had cover stories about it.

E.g.: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nfl/news/20140128/marshawn-lynch-media-day-seahawks/?eref=sihp

When he was in Buffalo, though, I don't remember him being so quiet. In fact, I thought he was kind of loud, in a fun, endearing way.

Here's my theory: Once Buffalo fans and media started turning against him -- for example, by claiming his off-the-field issues were a distraction and blowing them out of proportion, by spreading rumors about him stealing some off-duty cop's money in a mall, etc. -- he decided that when he got to Seattle, he would extricate himself entirely from the media circus and focus only on the game.

As a side note, I've always felt that it was ridiculous how Buffalo fans/media at the time considered him a distraction and turned against him. Unlike McGahee, Marshawn embraced the Buffalo community (see the hilarious YouTube clips). Some fans have poor judgment .

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
