Parents are upset over a moment Travis Kelce shared with his coach, Andy Reid, during the first half of the Super Bowl.
The moment consisted of a frustrated Travis Kelce yelling at Andy Reid on the sidelines. It seemed as though Reid was caught of guard, stumbling a little bit as Kelce demanded he start getting the ball more.
Fans were upset by Kelce’s behavior, believing he should have been benched afterwards.
While a few more commenters defended Travis saying, “It’s the superbowl emotions are high, they will kiss and makeup if you play sports you get it.”
But as Reid revealed after their win, it was nothing personal.
During a post game interview with Chris Herman and Booger McFarland, McFarland asked Reid what the interaction was about between him and Kelce. “He caught me when I wasn’t looking,” Reid laughed. “He didn’t know I was going to go that far.”
That’s when Reid admitted that Kelce did feel bad about the exchange and came over to give him a hug and apologies for the exchange. “Then he came over and gave me a hug and said ‘Sorry about that,’” the head coach admitted.
“He just wants to be on the field and he wants to play. And so there is no body I get better than I get him,” Reid told McFarland and Berman. “He’s a competitive kid and he loves to play. He makes me feel young. But you know, my balance is terrible, Booger.”
When Travis was asked about the exchange, he revealed that he would prefer to keep that moment between him and Reid, saying that he “was just telling him that I love him.”
