Catholic Super Bowl champion’s speech triggered one media freakout that will leave you scratching your head

The NFL has become a year-round sport.

Between draft and offseason workouts, there is always something to talk about.

And a Catholic Super Bowl champion’s speech triggered one media freakout that will leave you scratching your head.

Most Wanted

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker might have become the most famous—or infamous—player in the NFL.

The Catholic kicker gave a commencement speech at a Catholic university, and the entire Left went mad.

Feminists were particularly appalled by his speech.

Butker said, “Some of you [women] may go on to lead successful careers in the world, but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world. I can tell you that my beautiful wife, Isabelle, would be the first to say that her life truly started when she began living her vocation as a wife and as a mother.”

While getting choked up, Butker continued, “I’m on the stage today and able to be the man I am because I have a wife who leans into her vocation. I’m beyond blessed with the many talents God has given me, but it cannot be overstated that all of my success is made possible because a girl I met in band class back in middle school would convert to the faith, become my wife, and embrace one of the most important titles of all: homemaker.”

But this was very, very bad.

Change.org launched a campaign to have Butker dismissed from the team that currently has over 225,000 signees.

Unfortunately for them, Butker is one of the best kickers in NFL history and has helped the team win three Super Bowls, so he isn’t going anywhere.

But that did not stop The Kansas City Star from running one of the most insane columns ever.

Replace Butker with a woman

In light of the controversy, the paper argued that “[f]or poetic justice after Harrison Butker’s Neanderthal outburst — and because the pipeline of talent is real — the Kansas City Chiefs’ next kicker should be a woman. This is not a joke. It’s not unrealistic.”

Yes, an op-ed writer argued that the Chiefs should cut one of the best kickers in history—who made four field goals in the most recent Super Bowl, including a record-setting 57-yarder—because feminists were offended by a benign speech.

The Star added that “[m]illions of American parents who’ve had daughters in soccer over the last 30 years can attest to the fact that girls can kick.”

But not at an NFL level.

Op-ed writer Peter Hamm listed a handful of incidents of female kickers being brought in during desperate times—as somewhat of a sideshow—and attempting extra points or kicking off.

However, the idea of any of these female soccer players kicking in the NFL is a joke.

Hamm is attempting to generate attention and pile onto the Left’s “cancel” mob.

The backlash to Butker proved that he was over the target, and leftists are concerned about his message being well-received.

Female Butker jerseys immediately became bestsellers and sold out.
