The Chiefs tight end was quick to correct his brother: “Don’t sh-t on MLS!”

Kelce joined his quarterback Mahomes in heaping praise on Inter Miami after its 3-2 win over Sporting KC at the Chiefs’ home stadium on April 13, highlighted by a golazo from the Argentine.

Jason Kelce compares Lionel Messi to Michael Jordan
Older brother Jason doubled down on the hate by comparing Messi to Michael Jordan in a very unflattering way.

“Seeing Michael Jordan on the golf course is not the same as seeing Michael Jordan in a Bulls uniform,” the former Eagles center said, leaning into the played-out MLS retirement league rhetoric.

“Seeing Jason appear at WrestleMania is not the same as seeing Jason in the Super Bowl,” a fan fired back at Kelce in the comments of the clip on Instagram.

Jason Kelce’s comments resonated with some fans, while others saw his thinking as part of the issues holding American soccer back.

Look at it this way: two years ago, imagine if I told you two of the most popular NFL players would be debating an MLS game on their $100 million podcast after Messi played at their sold-out football stadium. The debate might be reductive, but look at who is a part of the conversation.
