Travis Kelce shoves Andy Reid and throws helmet after being removed from play


Tensions are running incredibly high in the Super Bowl.

The Kansas City Chiefs trail the San Francisco 49ers 0-3 in the second quarter and Travis Kelce’s frustrations spilled over towards head coach Andy Reid.

Kelce was visibly annoyed that he’d got taken out of the game after Isiah Pacheco fumbled the ball in the red zone.

He proceeded to scream in Reid’s face on the sidelines and had to be carried away by a teammate.

This isn’t the first time this season Kelce has lost his cool at his HC.

The Chiefs tight end had a meltdown in the 14-20 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Christmas Day.

After the Chiefs offense was stopped by the Raiders near the end of the first half, a visibly frustrated Kelce launched his helmet down the sideline.

Head coach Andy Reid appeared to have stern words for the All-Pro tight end and even pushed the helmet away so Kelce could not immediately get it back at that moment. 

Days later on his New Heights podcast with brother Jason, Trav explained his version of events.

Jason said of the incident, “the frustration was visible on the sideline.

“You had the incident where you tossed your helmet, in typical Kelce fashion.”

Speaking about his interaction with Reid, Travis responded, “he’s looking out for me and I love him for it.

“I didn’t go back out there and play good. He wanted to see the fire in me and I reacted in a bad way.

“He wanted to get the best out of me but right now I’m not playing my best football and I gotta lock the f*** in and be more accountable for him and be more accountable for my teammates.

“I gotta keep my f***ing cool man, because as a leader that’s not how you switch the momentum.”
