Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce said the NFL is “overdoing it” with all the attention and coverage the league gives to his rumored girlfriend, Taylor Swift.

During the two-time Super Bowl champ’s weekly podcast “New Heights,” co-hosted with his brother, Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Jason Kelce, the siblings talked about all the attention the NFL and broadcasters have given to Swift as she attended Chiefs games against the Chicago Bears and New York Jets, seemingly capturing everything the pop icon does during the game.

“Let’s get right to it, is the NFL overdoing it?” Jason asked. “What’s your honest opinion? Take away your feelings for Taylor…”

“I think it’s fun when they show who all was at the game,” the Chiefs’ player replied. “I think it brings a little bit more to the atmosphere, brings a little bit more to what you’re watching. But at the same time I think-”

“They’re overdoing it,” Jason interjected and his brother agreed.

“They’re overdoing it a little bit for sure, especially my situation,” Travis said. “I think they’re just trying to have fun with it.”

Jason suggested all the attention is because the “NFL is not used to celebrities coming to the games.” Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Sophie Turner, and Hugh Jackman also attended the Chiefs Sunday night game against the Jets.


“Like basketball has it figured out,” he added. “They show them [stars] once or twice but then they get back to the game. NFL is like, ‘Oh my god look at all these A-list celebrities at the game, keep showing them, show em, show em…’ You show them once let them know they’re there and after touchdowns you get a little clip, but it can’t be overboard with it. People are there to watch the game right?”

“Yeah, they’re [stars] not there to get thrown on the TV,” Travis claimed. “Cause you never know you get caught you know just throwing a big ol’ cheeseburger in and you look like an idiot you know what I mean, there’s just certain things … You just don’t want to be on TV at all times.”

After Kansas City’s 23-20 win over the Jets, the NFL changed its Instagram bio to “chiefs are 2-0 as swifties” and was criticized.
