Bill Belichick wants nothing to do with Taylor Swift questions before Chiefs game
Bill Belichick is looking to keep the Patriots’ focus on the Chiefs not Kansas City’s superstar supporter.
During a radio appearance Monday on WEEI’s “The Greg Hill Show,” the longtime Patriots coach was peppered with some questions about Taylor Swift, the girlfriend of Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, ahead of New England’s clash against Kansas City this coming Sunday.
And in true Belichick fashion, he didn’t appear particularly enthused to keep the conversation centered on the 12-time Grammy winner.
Upon being asked, “Will you be meeting Taylor Swift, do you think?” Belichick replied, “I’m really focused on trying to get our team ready to play Kansas City.”
Elsewhere during the show, co-host Courtney Cox told Belichick they would be willing to accept possible spare tickets to the game which Swift could potentially attend at Gillette Stadium to which he responded, “I’ll pass that along to our ticket department … I don’t really know anything about tickets.”

In late September after Swift’s first appearance at a Chiefs game, Cox asked Belichick “Swiftie to Swiftie” what he thought of the relationship.
Well, I would say that Travis Kelce has had a lot of big catches in his career, Belichick said. This would be the biggest.

“She is tough, man. She just stood out there and played right through the rain,” Belichick said in August of Swift’s “Eras Tour,” which is on hiatus until early 2024.
