Chiefs Fans Rally Around Travis Kelce Super Bowl Snub

An NFL host disrespected Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce ahead of the Super Bowl, among others.

 

What felt like a personal shot against future Hall of Fame tight end Travis Kelce caught the attention of Chiefs Kingdom on January 31.

 

Former WFAN NYC radio show host and current Fox Sports One television host Craig Carton of The Carton Show ranked his top 10 players that will be suiting up in the 2024 Super Bowl — combining the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers’ rosters into one pool of athletes. Inexplicably, the list did not include Kelce, defensive lineman Chris Jones and cornerback L’Jarius Sneed among other KC stars.

 

 

 

The Chiefs did get the No. 1 spot on the board, with quarterback Patrick Mahomes II, but after that Carton placed eight Niners players from No. 2 through No. 9 in the Super Bowl ranking.

 

 

They were quarterback Brock Purdy, running back Christian McCaffrey, wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk, left tackle Trent Williams, tight end George Kittle, defensive end Nick Bosa and linebacker Fred Warner in that order. Then, finally, kicker Harrison Butker rounded things out for Kansas City.

 

 

Needless to say, Chiefs fans took offense to this post.

Many KC supporters questioned Carton’s list after it began circulating on social media.

 

“I guess Chris jones, Travis Kelce, Sneed, etc. stopped existing? Love it, 😏” one popular quoted comment read.

 

Another stated: “There is no way you put Purdy over McCaffrey and then didn’t even include the greatest tight end of all time Travis Kelce. Mahomes number 1 is the only correct rating on the whole list.”

 

“This might be the worst list I have ever seen in the history of list made, 😂” a third KC fan laughed.

 

Eventually, the unpopular post made it all the way to A-to-Z Sports KC reporter Charles Goldman, who joked: “I’m just left wondering. . . What exactly did Travis Kelce do to this man?”

 

Of course, some Chiefs fans decided to use this as motivation for the big game. One X user tagged Kelce, Jones and Sneed with the caption: “For fuel if you need it.”

 

 

“Chiefs Bulletin Board prepper,” another noted, including a GIF that requested — “MORE! SHOW ME MORE!”

 

Finally, one fan simply voiced, “talk soon 🤝,” for

Chiefs Kingdom quite ominously.
