Lynch's point of view was detailed by Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports this morning as well, as Silver spent the early parts of the morning with Lynch and his entourage.
Of this much I am certain: As Lynch, his grandmother and several friends and business associates left that downtown Seattle steakhouse early Tuesday morning, they seemed a bit less exultant about the victory over the Packers than they had before that mirror became a TV screen, allowing them to see a sobering replay of the faux touchdown that rocked the football world.
"It's not like we did anything wrong," Lynch said, shaking his head, as he stood on Second Avenue. "We have nothing to apologize for."
He's right - the Seahawks don't. The owners do, however, and so does Goodell.
