Yes! More men should be calling this out. I have been. Many of us have been. It’s much ado about nothing. It’s love!
Sports talk show host Colin Cowherd put cowardly complainers about Travis Kelce / Taylor Swift on blast, calling them “weird, lonely, insecure men” who resent women on his Fox Sports broadcast.
“There’s a stat out there, it’s kind of uncomfortable for you sad guys, that 50 percent of men never have real intimacy with a woman…they are angry and sad and lonely, and they are often misogynistic and they resent women who didn’t give them the time they think they deserve,” Colin said.
“They celebrate the famous men who show up at these games, but when a woman is on the air — one who would never pay attention to lonely men like them — they’re bothered.”
Also worth the listen:
“I agree – it’s honestly weird to me that it has to be an ongoing discussion. I don’t listen to Taylor Swift / pop but I’m aware of how huge of a celebrity she is (in 2019 she was Forbes #1 highest-paid celebrity and has been on that list several years). And she gets into a relationship with arguably the best TE of all time at the end of his career? Why WOULDN’T the NFL show her at the games for a couple of seconds? Football is a sport – the NFL is an entertainment business… they’d be silly to not gently capitalize on opportune/low-hanging fruit in order to promote the sport to new demographics…. plus it’s only a couple of seconds here and there – I don’t think they’ve overdone it all all. I do not see why people are so surprised / ticked off by it. (btw, I’m a philly-born eagles fan – not a KC fan lol).”
“I lean conservative, and can’t be happier for them. She isn’t disruptive to the team, and carries herself with class. I’m not a swift, but respect her decency. I hope he asks her at the SB if the relationship ship is there.”
“It’s the same folks who are always projecting the word “snowflake” at people indiscriminately and who randomly brings up politics in irrelevant conversations as insults because they have no personality at all.”
“As usual, Colin is spot-on. They showed Eminem at the Lions game, and that was cool. As many people have said: the NFL is an entertainment TV show, for Pete’s sake. They’ll also show Donald Trump or Joe Biden — if they attend the Super Bowl. And as Nick says, they always showed Tom Brady’s wife the supermodel. Famous people get on TV, and no one should be surprised by that.”
“Their relationship has been a blessing for my girlfriend and I. She’s really gotten into football at first because of Taylor but now because she loves the game and I couldn’t be happier.”
