Former Giants star Tiki Barber has expressed annoyance at the NFL’s focus on Taylor Swift during games, questioning why her presence is emphasized when Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs score.
Former NFL running back Tiki Barber has claimed the league’s ‘obsession’ with Taylor Swift around Kansas City Chiefs games is ‘getting annoying.’Swift has attended around a dozen of boyfriend Travis Kelce’s Chiefs games since the end of September, including Sunday’s huge playoff win over the Buffalo Bills.
The pop sensation’s mainstream popularity makes it hard for the cameras to stay off of her during games, even when the action on the field doesn’t involve Kelce
Cameras cutting to the hospitality suites to capture Swift’s reactions is starting to annoy some viewers, like former Giants star Barber, who wants the focus to be solely on the field.’He scores a touchdown, and they pan immediately to Taylor Swift,’ Barber said on WFAN.
‘Again? It’s not even Travis Kelce. Maybe it’s the Taylor Swift influence that has made me — I don’t want to say turn sour — but just be slightly annoyed with the Kansas City Chiefs.’
After you’ve been somewhere for so long and have had the success they’ve had, it becomes inevitable.’Why are you guys continuing to show Taylor Swift? The obsession is getting annoying. Why do we need to see her?’
