Boycott NFL Advertisers if Marshawn Lynch is fined during Superbowl XLIX
The NFL has aggressively fined Seattle Seahawk Marshawn Lynch for not speaking with the media and grabbing his crotch after touchdowns. They continue to threaten him with further fines.
Lynch has been warned that failure to comply with Media Day sessions will result in a $500,000 fine. The Seahawks have been warned that celebratory crotch grabs will result in further fines for Lynch as well as penalty yards during the Superbowl.
As fans of the Seahawks and football itself, we find the league is unfairly targeting Lynch and have had enough. If the League fines Lynch for anything related to the Superbowl, we the fans will boycott all Superbowl advertisers until the next Superbowl, approximately 1 year.
With sponsors such as Anheuser-Busch, Coke, Doritos, Pepsi, and T-Mobile, we feel that the NFL will receive our message if we unite in opposition to their predatory tactics.

We, the undersigned, call on the NFL to suspend all threats and fines against Marshawn Lynch for media coverage and celebratory crotch grabs.
If he is fined, we, as a group, shall boycott all Superbowl advertisers for the period of approximately one year, until the next Superbowl on February 7, 2016.
