Mama Mullen and Controversy

Megan Mullen became intrigued about football due to Dan’s profession. Megan loves football and feels responsible to take care of players’ emotional well-being after a difficult practice session.

Most of the sport’s traditions are quite weird but kissing and hugging younger players is a quite inappropriate action and crosses the limits.

Her video of kissing and giving hugs to players went viral and many netizens found it unacceptable and questioned her intentions.

Megan tried to clear up the misunderstanding in an interview. She said she considers the players as her children and expanded family members.
