Jason Kelce jokingly accused Taylor Swift‘s fanbase, the Swifties, of disrupting his and his brother Travis’s NFL bracket competition, claiming they swayed results. However, Travis countered, alleging Jason manipulated the outcome with Buffalo Bills fans.
Jason criticized the Swifties for voting based on affection for Travis rather than the team name, blaming them for the Eagles‘ loss to the Vikings.
“I only campaigned for teams that were underrepresented. I just wanted voter turnout,” Jason said on the brothers’ New Heights podcast.
“The Swifties have this unrealistic infatuation with the Chiefs and Travis Kelce.
“[The Swifties] don’t understand how politics work, so they got really accusational of me manipulating votes, so they voted against me.”
Jason responded: “It’s just ridiculous that you’re throwing everything on the Swifties.”
Costly Super Bowl suites
Jason could be reunited with Swift at the upcoming Super Bowl. Swift’s attendance remains uncertain, but insights from Donna Kelce and Christian McCaffrey‘s mother, Lisa, suggest the family might attend, albeit without luxury suites due to the high cost.
“You can understand that the boxes in Vegas are multimillion dollars, so I have a feeling I’m not in a box,” Donna told the “Today” show.
“I have a feeling I’m in the stands, so far as I know I’m in the stands with everybody else because it is a pricey Super Bowl.”
