It's definitely not something you see often. Happening on the biggest stage adds fuel to the fire. Travis Kelce can get away with that kind of behavior. If Noah Gray put his hands on the head coach and screams in his face, he's riding the pine the rest of the night, maybe looking for a new home next season. 

 

Winning cures all. Being Travis Swift comes with privileges. 

Oh stop with the "Travis Swift" nonsense.

 

I'm pretty sure he'd have gotten away with "that kind of behavior" long  before Taylor Swift knew who he was. 

 

for the record, even though it didn't seem to bother Reid, Kelce did admit that he handled it poorly today on some podcast.

It's a joke, relax. 

 

Being Travis Kelce comes with privileges. Being Chris Davis with a $160M contract came with privileges. 

 

I did hear that Kelce said he crossed the line. Which he did. So, it's not "nothing." It's not normal behavior.  My Ravens fan bias thinks he's a jerk. Screwing with Tucker, running his mouth all game long and the second the Ravens take the bait, they get flagged. My unbiased opinion is he set out to get under the Ravens skin and it worked in the name of gamesmanship. And I wouldn't want my kids to do what he did to his coach if they get subbed out in the rec league game. 

 

Agree the outrage is ridiculous. The politicalization of everything is ridiculous, which fuels the outrage from those who otherwise wouldn't care.

for me, the fact that it didn't seem to bother Reid in the slightest led me to say it was much ado about nothing. 

 

That being said, good on Kelce to admit he was wrong. 

 

Agree in full with the last sentence. To politicize a woman supporting her boyfriend at a few football games (famous or not) is pretty insane to me. But what do I know.

Oh I think it bothered Reid but its a coach dealing with a HOF TE and they just won back to back SBs. Hes going to protect him publically.

Head Spectator John Harbaugh would have been visibly bothered, but Reid was too busy operating the game to care. :)

Kelce was absolutely in the wrong to put his hands on Reid. No excuse. His brother even criticized him for it during their podcast. Other than the fact that Kelce has the impulse control of a spoiled toddler, his actions are more of a "red flag" for Taylor Swift's dad. If he's going to put his hands on a 60 some year old coach, he may push Taylor's dad over something as well. ( Get a bodyguard that can handle an All Pro TE Mr. Swift!) Taylor should only be worried if Kelce slapped or pushed a cheerleader after his teammate fumbled inside the ten yard line.

I believe that AJ Brown tweeted that if he pushed his Head Coach like Kelce did he would be "out of the NFL."

Numerous NFL players could tweet this and it would be true. AJ Brown is not one of those people.

I agree.

That said, I think Brown knows that Kelce got a pass because He's great, has popular commercials, and dates Ms. Swift. Kelce showed what an asshole he is by pushing his coach. It would have been a lot bigger deal had they lost. Like someone said, winning cures all.

Bought a new Chevy Bolt for my wife yesterday. My rant is that my local Chevy dealer had one she liked. I inquired of salesman about their $750 doc fee. Oh, we have to charge that. What about coming down from MSRP? Oh, you're lucky we're only asking for MSRP; lots of dealers charge more.

 

I then did a Google search for Chevy dealers without doc fees and found one of the state, about five hours from home. Moreover, they had two Bolts meeting our wants, marked $2k below MSRP. I then communicate that to my local dealer, who said he'd go to his manager. He then comes back saying they can come down $2350.

 

I told him it was too late. I despise dealerships who play games, lie to me, and generally treat me like a moron.

I had a bad experience with Antwerpen in Clarksville recently. May eventually talk about it here

Not that's it's any of my business, but I'd be curious about this. 

 

I've been friends with Mike Antwerpen since we were kids, and I think he works out of that location (at least he was when I got my most recent Toyota), Unless I'm confusing locations, that is a Toyota one,right? 

 

Never mind, he runs the Hyundai one in Clarksville.

Yes it was the Toyota one. Bought a used car there recently they — literally — lied to my face. Fun stuff

That is freakin awesome that you told him why that deal blew up in his face. He'll either learn from that mistake in his future sales, or drum himself out of the business. I love that you told him why he lost it. ++++

Yea I can email you if you want. I have names and dates.

I was marinating on possibly going to Boston for a weekend this summer. Haven’t been to Fenway in a few years.

Decent hotels there for three nights will run close to $900 total. Absurd.

Checkout AirBnB. Apartments rent out for around $150-$250 a night.
