I'm surprised. I've only seen Taylor 3x now. I was expecting more.

KC isn’t doing great. Not many opportunities to show her celebrating.

[-] [email protected] 11 points 2 weeks ago

Is the game worth tuning into? I maybe catch 2-3 games a season but I almost never watch the super bowl any more because its like, never a good exciting, close game.

[-] [email protected] 21 points 2 weeks ago

It was a fucking nail biter!

[-] [email protected] 18 points 2 weeks ago

KC just tied it, so the last few minutes might be worth it

Though plenty would disagree I'm sure, I'd say it was one of the best Superbowls ever. Both defensive squads played their hearts out and the game was 75 minutes of back and forth scrambling. Kind of sad that Mahomes won the MVP, he had a pretty meh game (by his normal standards). It was their defense that deserves credit for the win, hell even Butker more so than Mahomes. The fact that they broke the old field goal distance record three times in this one game is crazy.

Overtime now, wild game really!

[-] [email protected] 4 points 2 weeks ago

Yeah, neither team is playing well tonight, but the chiefs have just been off form all game except the 4th quarter.

Can someone provide some context here? Why is he screaming at a coach?

Also side note: why is that even vaguely tolerable behavior for a professional sports player / role model?

[-] [email protected] 33 points 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago)

He had one target for one yard in the first half. Travis Kelce is the best TE currently in the NFL and considered to be the third best ever to play the game.

Since all the receivers for the Chiefs are mid at best this year, he's got some reason to be pissed. One of them, Kadarius Toney, was put on the gameday injury report for the AFCCG as being out for a leg injury and "personal reasons". He then went public saying his leg was perfectly fine and he had no personal reasons to skip the game... Basically clarifying that the actual reason he wasn't playing was because he's ass.

But Travis Kelce was also being guarded by Fred Warner during the first half who is one of the best linebackers in NFL history.

It could be a diva moment, sure. But it's the Super Bowl. Good teams know that you trust your studs. Romo would throw to Dez in double or triple team coverage, knowing he'd come down with it. Peyton Manning would chuck it at Marvin Harrison no matter who was on him. When someone is that good, all you've got to do is get the ball in their vicinity. Either they'll come down with it or they'll keep the defenders from getting it.

It's still stupid to yell at your coach like that and physically push him, but Andy Reid was making a lot of boneheaded decisions in the first. They went into halftime down 10-3. They did change things up during the second half, though. Kelce ended up with 9 receptions for 93 yards while the Chiefs won 25-22 in OT.

I understood nothing. But I feel like you know what you are talking about. I heard about that Payton guy.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 2 weeks ago

That sounds very unsportsmanlike. He is better than everyone so gets mad when he doesn't always get to play?!? That's not ok. That's real loser behavior.

[-] [email protected] 17 points 2 weeks ago

Its not a participation award game. It's the game of games. It's not about kelce not getting to play. It's about the chiefs losing because they're not utilizing their best weapon. It's a team sport and you're watching your team lose because you're not being used.

Imagine being on a competitive team project and you're the best speaker presenting to the state but your teacher decides to let the shy kids try to present, clearly bumbling and being incoherent, letting your opponents out argue every point your peers are making when you clearly can out speak them. You'd be pretty upset with your teacher for getting you to states, you being the reason you're there, and then once you're there you're sidelined.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 weeks ago

Maybe the coach knows better than the player though.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago)

I agree on his decision. Yeah they were down a touchdown and extra point at the end of the first half, but the 49ers tired themselves out while Kelcey was just getting started.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 weeks ago

Eh, sitting through Packers games during the McCarthy years, I wouldn't assume that.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 weeks ago

some of these are words, yes.

From what I’ve seen over the years acting like a complete dick head is just part of the sport.

They are over paid Neanderthals for the most part.

The chiefs fumbled, and that guy thought he should have been in, so they wouldn't have lost the ball. I believe that he is screaming, "just leave me in the game" like every play.

Why it's tolerated, not sure.

[-] [email protected] 19 points 2 weeks ago

Cause he's one of the best tight ends to ever play the game. Might be addressed in the off-season though.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 2 weeks ago

Nah, the screaming is uncalled for no matter who you are. I don't care how many sports he balled.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago)

Let's hope he doesn't Icarus the fuck out. It wasn't even close to his best season. The chiefs are doing this whole villains thing anyway. Maybe it gets them three in a row but I know if you even if you're just pretending to be a villian you start looking at yourself that way. It's just not sustainable.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 2 weeks ago

He brings in an enormous amount of money for the team and league. Make enough money and you can treat whoever you want, however you want. It's not morally right, but it's true.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 weeks ago

It's tolerated because he's literally the best player in his position in the entire world (and one of the best in the history of the entire sport). What are the going to do? Get rid of him?

If you're not one of the best, the behavior is not tolerated as much.

She'd just buy the whole team and make his life miserable

[-] [email protected] 39 points 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago)

A billion dollars net worth is not rich enough to buy a Superbowl champion NFL team. Not even close to enough.

[-] [email protected] 16 points 2 weeks ago

Not enough to buy Bortles Era Jacksonville Jags, much less now when they are somehow much worse.

Sometimes, when I have a problem, I throw a Molotov cocktail. After that, I have a completely different problem!

I agree about your point, but their point was if they lost.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 2 weeks ago

She's still not rich enough to buy the worst team in the NFL. You'd still need about $5-6B just to get interest.

Dude must absolutely crush it in bed, cuz he looks like a giant red flag otherwise.

[-] [email protected] 29 points 2 weeks ago

I was planning on losing, but since you insist...

[-] [email protected] 23 points 2 weeks ago

Guy on the left looks like a McDonald’s cashier in that outfit.

[-] [email protected] 24 points 2 weeks ago

How dare you? That's Andy Reid - he looks like a Walmart greeter.
