Yet, his wife wants people to know he’s trying! She posted a message on her Instagram story that “he’s not in an easy position” but is “grinding for” Cleveland.

You know things aren’t going well once wives and girlfriends start getting involved with chirping fans and responding to criticism.

That’s a sign that things have officially gone off the rails, and it will do nothing to improve the situation.

As I’ve always said, there’s no reason or excuse for significant others to get involved with banter between players, fans and the media.

It’s literally the Bill Burr bit about women married to the President men playing out in real life.

Let’s see if her words have an impact, but I doubt they’ll do anything to improve the situation!
