Travis Kelce thinks NFL is 'overdoing it' with showing Taylor Swift at his games

Travis Kelce thinks NFL is 'overdoing it' with showing Taylor Swift at his games

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end doesn't seem impressed with recent NFL coverage.

Travis Kelce says he thinks the NFL is doing a bit too much in terms of covering Taylor Swift’s recent appearances at Kansas City Chiefs games.

Late last month, Swift, 33, first made headlines when she sat alongside Kelce’s mother, Donna, to spectate the team’s 41-10 win over the Chicago Bears.

And on Sunday, (1 October) the ‘Blank Space’ singer rocked up to the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey with Ryan Reynolds and X-Men actors Sophie Turner and Hugh Jackman to watch the New York Jets vs. The Chiefs.

During the course of the game, NBC cameras regularly cut towards Swift to catch her reaction to certain plays.

And in one instance, cameras caught Swift reportedly saying a 'flirty comment' to Blake Lively about Kelce - who she is rumoured to be dating.

But despite Swift's continuous support for the game, it seems that some football fans aren't feeling the love.

Elsewhere, a video of Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants fans ‘booing’ an advert for the star’s upcoming Eras Tour movie on Monday (2 October) evening went viral.

And now, Kelce is speaking about the coverage of Swift, saying that the NFL and its partners could be ‘overdoing it a little bit’.

Taking to his New Heights podcast, which he hosts with brother and Philadelphia Eagles centre Jason Kelce, the 33-year-old said: "I think it's fun when they show who all is at the game. I think it brings a little bit more to the atmosphere, brings a little bit more to what you're watching.”

Jason then replied: ""They're overdoing it," to which Travis replied: "They're overdoing it a little bit for sure. Especially my situation.

"[But] I think they’re just trying to have fun with it."

And the NFL has recently responded in a statement issued to People today (4 October).

They said: "We frequently change our bios and profile imagery based on what’s happening in and around our games, as well as culturally.

“The Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce news has been a pop cultural moment we’ve leaned into in real time, as it’s an intersection of sport and entertainment, and we’ve seen an incredible amount of positivity around the sport.

“The vast majority of our content has remained focused on the game, our players and variety of other initiatives, including our Toy Story Funday Football alt-cast, the international games and more."

Kelce’s comments come after he'd previously told podcast listeners that he wanted to keep things private between himself and the ‘Shake It Off’ songwriter.

Taylor Swift has been present at the previous two Kansas City Chiefs games.

In a previous conversation with his brother, the tight end said: “My personal life that is not so personal. I did this to myself, Jason — I know this.

“I’m on the rollercoaster, man, the rollercoaster of life. I might have noticed a few things, like paparazzi outside my house.”

After calling Swift ‘ballsy’ for turning up to the game, he continued: “She’s not in the media as much as I am doing this show every single week and having fun during the NFL season on other guys’ shows.

“I’m enjoying life and I sure as hell enjoyed this weekend, so everything moving forward, I think me talking about sports and saying ‘All right nah’ will have to be kind of where I keep it.”

While neither party have confirmed whether or not they are dating, they were spotted leaving the Arrowhead Stadium together on Sunday 24 September.
