We haven’t even reached halftime of Sunday’s highly-anticipated Super Bowl LVIII matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers and already, there have been more than a few controversial moments throughout the contest.
One of the biggest incidents came early in the second quarter shortly after the Chiefs fumbled the ball in the red zone. Travis Kelce, who was taken out of the game right before the botched play, was seen charging at head coach Andy Reid on the sidelines.
It was not a pretty sight.

Apparently, Kelce wasn’t at all pleased by his coach’s decision to take him out right before the fumble. The four-time All-Pro decided to charge at Reid on the sidelines, which nearly caused the 62-year-old shot-caller to hit the deck:

Naturally, this controversial incident immediately trended on Twitter. More than a few football fans weren’t at all pleased with Kelce’s behavior:

To be fair to Reid, he did not seem to make anything of it. These two have been through a lot through the years, and it just doesn’t feel like this is going to cause a rift between player and coach — especially in a game of this magnitude.
