Unfortunately, injuries are an inherent part of the game, typically anticipated when two athletes collide. However, it’s disheartening to witness a recent surge in non-contact injuries.
During Sunday’s game, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce suffered a foot injury, which, although not as severe as initially feared, raised concerns for Kelce, the Chiefs, and even Taylor Swift and her fans.
Swift’s fans, who have grown fond of the relationship between Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, are now advocating for a change within the National Football League, driven by their discontent with artificial turf.
I’m so devastated for Taylor We KNOW how much Travis makes her happy. She had to be so worried right now. She finally has a man who shows her love back and he got hurt on ARTIFICIAL TURF? This is so wrong. We can fix this. No. More. TURF! exclaimed one fan in a tweet.
This tweet from a Taylor Swift fan has garnered over 4,000 retweets, 22,000 likes, and more than 5.7 million views.
The Swifties are undeniably one of the most influential fan bases globally, and if anyone can persuade the NFL to transition to natural grass playing surfaces, it’s them.
Ironically, part of the rationale behind artificial turf surfaces is to accommodate artists like Swift for major stadium concerts without causing harm to the field.
Perhaps someone should inform the Swifties that the turf is there to serve their leader’s interests.
