(Seattle, WA)  --  A group of Seattle Seahawks fans has started an effort to raise enough money to cover the 50-thousand-dollar fine the NFL has imposed on star running back Marshawn Lynch.  The fine was levied after Lynch violated league policy by refusing to make himself available to the media during the season.  The 'Go Fund Me' fundraising effort has pulled in about 93-hundred dollars so far, and Lynch says he'll match the amount raised and donate it to charity.
