This is so good. At his weekly meeting with the press, Seahawks corner Richard Sherman, a cardboard cutout of Doug Baldwin, and the disembodied voice of actual Doug Baldwin teamed up for a skit that took shots at the money-hungry NFL and stood up for teammate Marshawn Lynch, who was fined $100,000 for failing to talk to the press last week.

Lynch's own monosyllabic makeup presser wasn't enough. Standing at the lectern, Sherman called out the league's bizarre media availability rules, its stance on product endorsement, and the absurdity of forcing a team to play twice in five days while it crows about player safety.

Cardboard Doug Baldwin will be fined $100,000 for insubordination.
