Philadelphia Eagle star Jason Kelce doesn’t see anything wrong in the NFL focusing too much on Taylor Swift during the broadcasts of Kansas City Chiefs games.
Ever since Jason’s brother, Travis Kelce, began dating Swift, the NFL has really capitalized on her appearances during games. While many purists hated it, there’s no denying that it brought a lot more attention to the league and garnered new fans in the process.
For Kelce, that’s a big positive for the NFL and something that shouldn’t be criticized.
Jason Kelce Defends Taylor Swift Amid Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl Run
After the Chiefs secured a ticket to Super Bowl 58, plenty of fans pointed out how they would see another game with Swift being a focus. Of course, the negativity only increased from there.
Some even went as far as to saying that the NFL rigged the AFC Championship to make sure the Chiefs make it so Swift will be there. Considering the attention that Chiefs games are getting because of the pop star, a lot of people actually shared the same conspiracy theory.
Jason, however, doesn’t understand the criticisms. After all, it’s only normal for sports leagues to highlight celebrities attending games. And Swift’s situation is no different.
The Eagles center also pointed out that it’s only right for the NFL to give Swift some attention because she is a great role model. Why would the league not show her with such figure supporting her significant other?
“The attention is there because the audience wants to see it, I know that. If people didn’t want to see it, they wouldn’t be showing it. She is the quintessential artist right now in the world, singer-songwriter. She is an unbelievable role model for young women across the globe,” Jason Kelce said, via Caleb Noe of WCPO.
“The NFL probably would be foolish not to show her.”
"The NFL would be foolish not to show (Taylor Swift)."

What Jason said certainly makes sense. And besides, there’s really nothing wrong with what the NFL is doing.
JJ Watt Drops Similar Taylor Swift Take
For what it’s worth, it’s not only Jason Kelce who has come to the defense of Travis Kelce’s girlfriend. Recently, former NFL star JJ Watt also noted that he doesn’t understand the hate directed towards Swift.
First and foremost, she’s only there to support her partner. Secondly, it’s not her fault at all that the NFL is showing her on broadcasts.
“I think it’s great. I can’t understand why people are so upset about it. I mean, they show celebrities at games all the time. Don’t act like we don’t show male celebrities at games all the time. I don’t really understand why it’s caused such an uproar,” Watt said.
“I mean, she’s literally there supporting her significant other, and that’s what you should do as a significant other. I think it should be nothing but celebrated,” Watt says. “I think that it’s not her fault they put the camera on her, just it is what it is.”
Regardless of what people say, Swift can rest easy knowing for a fact that she has several people supporting her from behind.
