If you’ve played organized sports at basically any level, you’ve likely encountered the dreaded “Sports Das” at some point during your travels; the kind of guys who try to get a coach fired over their kid’s playing time, spend an entire Little League game harassing a teenage umpire working for a free cheeseburger and a Gatorade, and challenge other Sports Dads to fight them in the parking lot.

There is perhaps no more notable example of the archetypical Sports Dad than LaVar Ball. However, it’s important to note insufferable family members come in all shapes and forms, and as I wrote after the Chiefs fell to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV, there’s perhaps no collective that highlights this better than a trio of Patrick Mahomes’ biggest supporters.

Over the past few years, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback has transformed into one of the most formidable passers in the NFL—and during that span, his mother Randi, brother Jackson, and fiancée Brittany Matthews have become increasingly intolerable to a point where I don’t see how you could argue there’s any who comes close to topping the Mahomes clan as the most unbearable family in the world of sports.

How did they manage to become the equivalent of Jean-Ralphio’s sister? To give you a better idea, I put together a timeline so you can see how Randi Mahomes, Jackson Mahomes, and Brittany Matthews joined forces to become the woooooooorst.

June 2018

Before we dive into things, I should note that every story on this list is limited to articles from the BroBible archives. As a result, there’s a chance I’m missing some examples that confirm my thesis, but as you’ll see, there’s not exactly a shortage from the past few years.

Things didn’t really begin to escalate until 2020 rolled around, but with that said, we got our first hint of what was in store when Matthews—who is the undisputed G.O.A.T. of eye-rolling antics—posted a couple of bikini pics on Instagram to respond to the haters who think Mahomes “could do so much better” when it comes to a romantic partner.

July 2020

I’ll admit this one is a bit of a stretch compared to everything else on this list, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention a series of Postmates orders Matthews placed on July 20, 2020. On that fateful day, Mahomes’ fiancée ordered a dragon fruit bowl at one restaurant and some food from a donut shop in a span of five minutes, and a few hours later, she had another driver bring her IHOP for dinner.

It’s worth noting all three of those orders were placed two months into a pregnancy, and while I’m sure the drivers who helped her satisfy those cravings received a solid tip, getting food delivered from three different spots over the span of three hours at the peak of a pandemic is the kind of thing I feel says a lot about a person.

September 2020

Our first entry featuring Randi Mahomes comes courtesy of a tweet she posted taking aim at an ESPN announcer who had the gall to refer to her son as “Pat” instead of “Patrick” on Monday Night Football.

Mahomes father—who divorced Randi in 2006—was known as “Pat” when he was an MLB pitcher who bounced around the league over a career that spanned a little more than a decade, and his son adopted “Patrick” to avoid any confusion.

The announcer eventually apologized for the oversight, and while I can understand why Randi would prefer to avoid being reminded of her ex, it was a fairly innocent mixup that didn’t really need to be greeted that that degree of indignity.

October 2020

This was an absolutely banner month for Matthews, who kicked things off by calling for a Patriots defender to be ejected from a game after Mahomes pulled out a Premier League-caliber flop following a hit—the same weekend Randi opted to expand her horizons by ripping LeBron James for walking off the court early during a loss.

Matthews returned the following weekend to partake in her favorite tradition—criticizing the refs whenever things don’t go Kansas City’s way—and wrapped up the month by once again addressing her critics on social media by claiming she refuses to respond to them or let them get under her skin (which, as you will see, does not appear to actually be the case).

November 2020

When the Chiefs faced off against Tampa Bay, things went Kansas City’s way when Jason Pierre-Paul was flagged for a very questionable roughing the passer penalty on Mahomes. Matthews took to Twitter to say “Sorry, you can’t touch him,” which was less of a chirp and more of an admission that her fiancé was the beneficiary of the weak calls she’s more than happy to complain about when things don’t go in his favor.

January 2021

We’ve still got more than two months before 2021 comes to an end, and when you consider the exponential rise in insufferable moments we’ve been treated to over the course of the year, there’s no telling what’s in store.

In January, Randi kicked things off when she accused Browns linebacker Mack Wilson of committing an “evil” act during a tackle where her son was concussed after having his head inadvertently slammed into the turf, which was just a preview of the Peak Mahomes and Co. behavior we were treated to when the Super Bowl rolled around.

February 2021

Prior to The Big Game, Matthews left plenty of people scratching their heads after she expressed her displeasure with fans who compare and debate the merits of various players; you know, the metrics that serve as the foundation of every draft, contract, and basically the entire concept of sports.

It then came as no surprise when she took issue with ESPN when the network dubbed Mahomes the “baby G.O.A.T.” ahead of his Super Bowl showdown with undisputed G.O.A.T. Tom Brady. She and Randi doubled down when ESPN’s Twitter account posted some pictures of a sad Mahomes in the closing minutes of Kansas City’s loss to Tampa Bay, with the latter also going out of her way to tag Gisele Bundchen in a tweet where she suggest the officials had a hand in the absolute blowout.

June 2021

It took us a while, but Jackson got in on the action over the summer when the TikTok star had Matthews join him in a video they recorded of themselves dancing in a restaurant. There was nothing particularly offensive about the clip itself, but it feels important to include because of Patrick’s impressive disinterest in the extracurricular activities that unfolded while he kept eating his meal.

September 2021

Matthews once again called for the head of an opposing player after Browns safety Ronnie Harrison Jr. shoved a Kansas City coach during a scuffle on the sideline, which is far from her most egregious take but one that doesn’t hold up to much scrutiny when you consider the coach actually pushed Harrison first.

The following week, Jackson earned his second entry on this list when he responded to some Ravens fans who were heckling him by pouring a bottle of water on the spectators from the safety of his luxury box.

October 2021

On Sunday, the Chiefs faced off against the Washington Football Team on what was a simply unreal day for Randi, Brittany, and Jackson.

After Mahomes threw an interception in the red zone, Randi suggested it shouldn’t count against her son’s stats because it brush against the hands of the wide receiver before it was picked off. Matthews once again took issue with the refs before issuing a nonsensical response to one of the haters she prides herself on ignoring, and while Jackson may not have intended to film a TikTok while dancing on an on-field tribute to Sean Taylor, it certainly wasn’t a great look.

December 2021

Jackson had a surprisingly quiet couple of months but returned with a vengeance in December after hopping online to complain about how he was treated at a cocktail bar in Kansas City.

Unfortunately for him, that bar does not subscribe to the “The Customer Is Always Right” mantra, as it didn’t hesitate to fire back in a Facebook post where it ripped into Mahomes for the “sense of entitlement” that sparked the exchange that ended with him taking another L.

January 2022

Brittany picked up right where she left off after the new year rolled around by once again blaming the refs when the Bengals walked away with a victory over Kansas City in the penultimate game of the regular season.

A few weeks later, the Chiefs beat the Bills in their AFC Divisional showdown and she opted to celebrate the victory by popping open a bottle of champagne that she promptly sprayed all over the spectators sitting below the luxury box where she watched the showdown.  Now, I personally didn’t think that move was that egregious based on what you sign up for when you walk into basically any NFL stadium, but plenty of people seemed to take issue with it.

I did, however, take issue with her decision to start selling “Team Brittany” shirts in response to the criticism; I’m well aware I’m setting myself up for angry comments by starting a statement with “I know the proceeds were donated to an anti-bullying foundation,” but she probably could’ve just skipped the middleman, cut them a check, and come out of the incident looking a lot better than she did.

February 2022

After the Chiefs were eliminated from the playoffs following an embarrassing loss to the Bengals that even Brittany couldn’t pin on the refs, Jackson headed to a bar to grind on a woman while riding a mechanical bull before promptly posting the video on TikTok in one of his most eye-rolling moves yet.

That kicked off a truly banner month for him, as he was subsequently accused of scamming an online wholesaler after promising to promote them on social media in exchange for some free products they sent his way. Shortly after, he went into Full Sad Boi Mode after Patrick declined to invite him to join him at his bachelor party and opted to blame the media for his woes instead of taking a long, hard look in the mirror.

March 2022

Jackson and Brittany managed to earn a spot on the list of “the most hated people in the NFL” based on an analysis of social media activity (Jackson narrowly missed out on the top five), which is especially impressive when you consider everyone else was either a player, an owner, or Roger Goodell.

That’s all I’ve got for now, but I have a feeling we’re far from done.
