Tyreek Hill isn’t holding back.
Tyreek Hill has made allegations against the NFL, suggesting that the league has been aiding his former team in securing victories, dating back to their Super Bowl win in February.
The Miami Dolphins wide receiver made these remarks on his podcast titled ‘It Needed To Be Said.’ During the podcast, he implied that the Kansas City Chiefs have been benefiting from favorable officiating decisions that have contributed to critical wins, including their recent game against the New York Jets.
In this particular game, the AFC East team seemed poised to upset the defending champions before a late holding penalty was called against cornerback Sauce Gardner following an interception on a third and 20, granting the Chiefs a crucial first down and aiding them in sealing the victory.
“It was a 50/50 call, but when the game is on the line, you gotta let the players play,” Hill declared. “The Chiefs, they got saved like that last year for real though, against the Eagles in the Super Bowl, if we’re being honest.”
The wide receiver also humorously suggested that the referees might have been inclined to help the Chiefs save face because Taylor Swift was in attendance.
“Then they come back and get saved in the Jets game,” he added. “Maybe because Taylor Swift was in the building. I don’t know what’s going on… hey! Whatever Kelce is doing, I know you’re helping out the NFL.”
It’s worth noting that Swift is rumored to be in a relationship with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and has attended their last two games.
However, in all seriousness, the notion of the NFL scripting games is something that you would hope would never occur. Nevertheless, given the significant financial stakes involved, it wouldn’t be entirely surprising if, one day, we were to discover instances of manipulated games.
