Carl Cheffers, the referee Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce deemed as unfit to work at Foot Locker, is part of the officiating crew assigned to Super Bowl LI, according to ESPN.com.
Andrew Cashner Authentic Jersey Kelce was highly critical of the officials following a 18-16 loss to the Steelers on Sunday. Specifically, he ripped into Cheffers for calling a holding penalty on Chiefs tackle Eric Fisher, negating a successful two-point conversion that would have tied the game at 18-18 with under three minutes remaining.
It hurts. You fight all year, you fight all game, for it to end like that, for the ref to take it ot of our hands, that hurts, Kelce told reporters after the season-ending loss. You try to play this game with integrity and to the end of the whistle. When the refs wants to take over the game and make it their own platform, there’s nothing you can do about it.
He signed for a few of the guys he knew and I asked him for an autograph and he looked me in the eyes and said NO. I get it if you gotta go or can’t do it at the time but at least say sorry kid I can’t do it right now. I wanted to box him. Now that I’m in the league I know that there is a time and a place for everything and you can’t get to everyone but he was just RUDE.

You will never be able to sign or take a pictures with everyone but there is a way to say no, and Theisman’s way was RUDE! Anyways that’s my story for the day. I have no beef with Theisman. He helped me with how I try to interact with fans.
While Smith may not have beef with Theisman, he clearly remembers the negative encounter from all those years ago.
