Ex-NFL player Merril Hoge has shot down suggestions Taylor Swift has anything to do with the alarming dip in form the Kansas City Chiefs are currently enduring.
The Chiefs lost to the Raiders on Christmas Day, sparking comments from the likes of Undisputed Host Skip Bayless and OutKick founder Clay Travis that the singer’s presence at games to cheer boyfriend Travis Kelce was a distraction for the team.
It is an alarming run of form for the Chiefs who have now lost five of their last eight games, but Hoge ironically speaking on Travis’s OutKick slammed claims it has anything to do with the singer.
Speaking to Dan Dakich, Hoge said of Kelce and Swift’s relationship: ‘I can sum that up pretty – it’s irrelevant.
‘It’s irrelevant. That’s a media twist. It just tells you how weak and stupid media is and people are.
