Should the NFL force players to speak at media day?

I have heard quite a bit of people in the media lately talking about media day for the Super Bowl, and I had a question for my readers?

Should NFL players be forced to talk to media before or after any game? Marshawn Lynch told Michael Silver he is being forced to talj in front of media.

“If you’re forced to do something, it’s not as good as if you choose to do it,” Lynch told Silver last week. “So no, I won’t have a lot of interesting things to say. When you’re forced to do something and you know it, it kind of just takes away from the whole experience of what it could be if (it were) natural. So, I’ll probably give forced answers.”

I personally don’t feel Marshawn should have to speak to media. There are some guys that feel when they talk to media they will make it sound differently than they actually meant it. A few years ago, Vontaze Burfict was criticized for his speech at the Senior Bowl, and people took what he said and turned it all around to make him look a bad guy.

Then you have guys like Ellis Lankster who has a speech impediment or players with hearing or speaking disabilities. Should they be forced to talk to the media? I want to know your opinion?
