Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford's wife, Kelly, took a shot at the NFL referees in a text conversation with her husband.

Matthew Stafford’s wife Kelly takes shot at NFL referees

The Detroit Lions are heading into Week 5 of the NFL season without a win. Star quarterback Matthew Stafford hasn’t looked quite like the player many expected him to be, but that hasn’t stopped his wife from calling out the NFL referees in text messages with her husband.

That conversation shows some of the personality that Kelly has and why she is a hot topic in the media. There aren’t many wives or girlfriends of NFL players that would allow this type of message to get out.

Since she posted that message, she has deleted the tweet but it wasn’t in time to stop the media from getting their hands on it.

It would have been very interesting to see what Stafford responded with to his wife’s last message. He likely didn’t disagree with her, but Kelly wisely left his response out of the picture. The last thing that the Stafford’s needed was him getting a fine for talking down at the refs on social media, which is exactly what would have happened.
