Matthew Stafford wife Kelly blasts ‘incompetent’ NFL refs
The Detroit Lions fell victim to one of the most controversial — and clearly incorrect — calls of the season Monday night, and the starting quarterback’s wife is fired up about it.
On Wednesday, Matthew Stafford’s wife Kelly shared a screenshot on Instagram of a text message exchange she had with her husband. Stafford informed Kelly that the league might be fining him for the cleats he wore against Seattle, and wifey responded by ripping the NFL’s referees.

Stafford’s wife later deleted the screenshot, which probably should have been kept private. If you have not seen the play that may have cost the Lions a win, you can watch it here.
As Josh Katzenstein of The Detroit News notes, Stafford was wearing all blue cleats Monday while most other players wore a combination of black, white and pink for breast cancer awareness. It’s unclear if not wearing those colors constituted a uniform violation.
Kelly Stafford has always been one of our favorite player wives, mostly because of that time she went “drunk modeling” in Costa Rica. But in this instance, I’m sure Matt would have preferred if she didn’t share the text messages with the world.
