For Pete's Sake

Chiefs’ Travis Kelce apologizes after this ejection for tossing towel at official

Thanks to a new rule this year and a little loss of control, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was ejected during Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Arrowhead Stadium.

This season, the NFL instituted a rule in which a player could be ejected for two unsportsmanlike calls. Kelce got called for two of them in the space of a minute.

He was upset about a no-call, and said something to an official, who threw a flag. Kelce then turned around and did this:

Oh, that’s a no-no.

Here is Kelce’s first “discussion” with an official.

A few hours after the game, Kelce took to Twitter and apologized for his actions:
