During Sunday night’s Super Bowl showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers, Chiefs’ tight end Travis Kelce got in a sort of altercation with head coach Andy Reid on the sideline after the Chiefs suffered a costly turnover in the red zone while Kelce was not in the game. And after the game, Kelce sounded pretty remorseful about the whole situation.
During his postgame press conference, Travis Kelce admitted that his emotions got the best of him at that moment, but he was just trying to speak his mind to his head coach.
“I didn’t care about my catches,” Kelce said after the game according to ESPN. “I just wanted to … I wanted the score to be different. Coach has asked us to speak our minds and I just wanted to let him know how much passion I had for this team.
“He’s one of the best leaders of men I’ve ever seen in my life. And he’s helped me a lot with that, with channeling that emotion, with channeling that passion. I owe my entire career to that guy and being able to kind of control how emotional I get and just love him.”
Ultimately, the Chiefs won the game so it’s unlikely to be a moment either of them dwell on too long.
