Travis Kelce may have created this situation, but now he has to deal with the consequences.
While the NFL continues to hype up the relationship between Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift, Kelce himself has expressed dissatisfaction with the NFL’s coverage. Stephen A. Smith, however, has a different perspective on the matter.
During the latest episode of First Take, Smith criticized Kelce for complaining about the NFL taking things too far with their coverage of his relationship with Swift. Smith argued that Kelce initiated this whole situation, and he can’t selectively choose how it’s handled by others.
“Travis Kelce, stop. Bro, you did this. Not the NFL. If the NFL has 27 million viewers (because of Swift’s presence) more power to ’em… You know what you’re doing,” Smith said.
However, NFL fans didn’t seem to appreciate Stephen A. Smith’s comment, and many criticized his logic in reaching that conclusion.
One thing almost everyone can agree on is that the NFL is capitalizing excessively on the Kelce-Swift relationship. The source of the problem isn’t as important as the problem itself.
What began as a playful flirtation has now become one of the biggest news stories of the year, and Kelce is entirely responsible for it.
