Radio host Christopher “Mad Dog” Russo has given his opinion on Taylor Swift attending Travis Kelce’s NFL game — and he’s not impressed.
The 33-year-old Kansas City Chiefs were escorted out of the locker room by the pop star after Sunday’s 41-10 win over the Chicago Bears.
Now the longtime sports critic expressed his disdain for the pop star’s presence at Arrowhead Stadium, where she appeared to back up her rumors on Sunday.
During Monday’s episode of “Mad Dog Unleashed,” Russo didn’t hold back when he spilled his true feelings about the circus that followed her visit.
“I don’t like Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, so try someone else for that,” Russo said.

Radio host Christopher Russo says he has no interest in Taylor Swift attending NFL games ‘even if she’s naked in the box’
“I could care less. I don’t care if Taylor Swift is naked in the box. I’m not that interested. I’m sorry, I don’t care.
‘Against the bears – I can’t buy that. I’m more excited about what the Bears are up to – and they stink – than I am about that.”
The Bad Blood hitmaker was spotted coming into the game as the Kansas City Chiefs battled the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
She happily cheered on her boyfriend as she joined his mother, Donna, in the stands in a special VIP section.
Taylor appeared to shout “let’s f***ing go” in response to Kelce’s touchdown reception in the third quarter, leading the Chiefs in receptions with seven catches for 69 yards and the touchdown grab.
The Grammy winner wore a red and white colored ensemble to show her support for the recent Super Bowl champions and appeared to be having a blast with Kelce’s mother as they shouted and cheered for the team and the tight end.
The pair then left the stadium together in his vintage convertible and hung out at a private after-party at Prime Social Rooftop in Kansas City.
Conversation about their romance first began when Travis revealed on New Heights, the podcast he hosts with his brother and fellow NFL star Jason, 35, that he had hoped to catch the Cruel Summer singer’s attention during her KC concert via a friendship bracelet with his phone. number on it.
Unfortunately, Taylor had left the stadium before he could get it to her, but she found out after the conversation went public.

As speculation began to grow, his brother Jason – who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles – further stoked the flames during an interview on Audacy’s 94WIP Midday Show.
The Eagles center told the hosts, “I don’t really know much about Travis’ love life. I try to keep his business kind of his business, stay out of that world.”
He then added, “That said, man, I think they’re doing a great job and I think it’s all 100 percent true, and I hope this thing goes a mile further – no, I’m kidding, I don’t know what’s happening.’
Shortly after, Travis addressed romance rumors that began circulating between him and Swift during an interview on The Pat McAfee Show.
The host brought up the speculation that is “being talked about around the world right now.”
The professional NFL star admitted to McAfee, “It’s life, baby. I threw it there, I threw the ball in her court.”
It comes as Travis’ ex-girlfriend Maya Benberry has issued a stark warning to Swift to remain vigilant amid her budding new romance with the NFL hunk, after previously accusing him of infidelity during their short-lived relationship.
Benberry, 31, dated the Kansas City Chiefs for several months after leaving his E! dating reality series Catching Kelce in 2016.
However, they soon broke up and the reality star accused the Super Bowl champion of cheating on her as he began his next relationship with sports broadcaster Kayla Nicole in a series of now-deleted tweets.
Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com about her ex’s high profile connection to superstar singer Swift, Benberry warned: ‘Once a cheater, always a cheater.’
She said: ‘Taylor seems like such a nice girl with a beautiful mind, so I wish her the best of luck, but I wouldn’t be a girly girl if I didn’t advise her to be smart!
“I’m sure by now she’s mastered the ability to tell who’s really there for her – and who’s just using her.”
The marketing and brand consulting expert continued, “I can only hope that she comes out as a teacher in this situation and not a student.”
Benberry, who also works as a life coach, said she can only give advice based on “the man I knew him to be when we dated,” before adding: “Only time will tell, but as the saying always reads: once a cheater, always a cheater.’

The pair packed on the PDA during a “loving” evening at Prime Social Rooftop in Kansas City on Sunday — after paying the restaurant’s full bills so they could party privately.
An eyewitness told Entertainment Tonight, “Travis bought the restaurant for his family and team. Taylor arrived dressed in a denim dress and was seen snacking, drinking a few cocktails and dancing next to Travis.
‘The two were very affectionate with each other, but kept things fun and light. Travis’ teammates also showed up at the afterparty, as did his mother, Donna Kelce. The party lasted until 2 a.m.’
A source added that the pair “didn’t rush into anything serious” but were “enjoying life” together, saying: “Both are very career-oriented so the focus is on that for now, but that won’t stop them to enjoy life. when it’s the right time.’
Another restaurant told the publication they were told there would be a “hard lockdown” of the eatery at 8 p.m., with staff giving guests boxes and informing them they had to leave the premises.
They said they were offered free drinks at the venue’s sister restaurant in compensation.
Kelce has seen his profile rise after Swift endorsed him.
Within 24 hours, Travis had gained over 300,000 social media followers, seen a 400% increase in merchandise sales, and had his jersey reach the top five best-selling in the NFL.
Fans are calling it the ‘Taylor Swift effect’ as Swifties showed their support for the singer. Travis now has a whopping 3.1 million followers and counting.
According to Fanatics, sales of Kelsey’s No. 87 jersey for the Chiefs, via TMZ, have skyrocketed as of Sunday afternoon.
“Yesterday, Travis Kelce was one of the top five selling NFL players and saw a nearly 400% sales spike across the Fanatics network of sites,” a Fanatics spokesperson told TMZ Sports.
A limited edition red replica Kelce jersey on the NFL Shop website will cost fans $175, while a standard ‘player game jersey’ will cost fans $130.
Luckily for the Swifties, the NFL website does a 90-day return – so if it ends up being a short-lived romance between the two, they’ll likely be able to get their money back.
Fans couldn’t believe the singer’s influence. One wrote: ‘That’s insane, over 400% increase in sales. Swift fans are supporting hard.”
“That Swift Effect is crazy” and “Ending up in that breakup song might be worth it all now.”
‘That is indeed the Taylor Swift effect. What can she say?’
