Taylor Swift-NFL complaints attributed to ‘weird, lonely, insecure men’; Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd blasts in 4-minute rant
However, not everyone is happy about the NFL entering the Swiftie universe. Over time, some say the complaints have ranged from annoyance to rage.
Fox Sports Colin Cowherd, the host of The Herd radio show, decided he’s had about enough of all the ire directed at Swift from football fans, particularly men. He made his feelings known in a four-minute rant on his show.
“There’s a lot of really weird, lonely, insecure men out there,” Cowherd said. “The fact that a pop star — the world’s biggest pop star — is dating a star tight end, who had one of his greatest games ever, and a network puts them on the air briefly, that it bothers you … what does that say about your life?”
Cowherd made the point that a football telecast is an event in mainstream American culture and that much more goes into it than the time of game regulation. He also said that game broadcasts often show celebrities in attendance and have done so since the earliest days of sports broadcast.
He even pointed to a New York Times report released last week that found that, although there have been several cutaways to Swift each game she attends, she only averages about 25 seconds of airtime per game broadcast.
“Again, judge people by the silly things that bother them … This anger says nothing about Taylor Swift, it says everything about the men bothered by it,” he concluded.
