Browns’ Damarious Randall Won’t Buy Fans Jerseys After Tweet Goes Viral

Browns’ Damarious Randall Won’t Buy Fans Jerseys After Tweet Goes Viral

If Cleveland beats Golden State in the NBA Finals, Randall would buy everyone a jersey.

"I definitely didn't think it would go as viral as it did", the 25-year-old said.

On Wednesday, Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk reported Randall's number of retweets, which has reached 692,000 and counting, surged past a message from Detroit Lions punter Sam Martin about buying dog food for Hurricane Harvey victims.

Coach Hue Jackson, who plans to jump into Lake Erie on Friday to make good on a promise he made when the team was going 0-16 last season, knew Randall would get some heat for his tweet. "It is a great, great opportunity to interact with the fans and we're just going to watch the series and just see how everything folds out".

"I definitely didn't think the Cleveland fan base would go this insane about it", Randall said, via ESPN's Pat McManamon.

"Oh, just the stadium, I mean the crowd, 'cause obviously Curry does shoot a lot of threes and he scores a lot of points, so that would be lighting it up", he said. I think he has a love and a respect for Curry, obviously. "I am not anti-LeBron". He's tried to read some of the replies and understand why Cleveland fans seem to be so angry, but he said his phone is going so "crazy" that it's been hard to even open the Twitter app. "But at the end of the day, they are both great, great players". "Should have been smarter about the whole situation, about the tweet".

These days, nearly everybody knows it pays to be careful what you tweet.


"I am not anti-[LeBron James]", Randall said.

"I just think of my mom's face. But I think he found out that, hey look, in this city it's about the Cavaliers and LeBron James".

"I thought it was tremendous".

Randall planned to sit courtside for Games 3 and 4 at The Q but is reconsidering.

"I don't think any Cavs fans would sell me any tickets anymore", he said.

Taylor knows the spotlight on athletes is always bright and has a simple method for staying out of trouble on social media. Fortunately, there is some relief in sight, since according to a Darren Rovell Twitter report on the matter, sportswear brand Fanatics has offered to cut him a wholesale deal on the jerseys, which he says would save him 50 percent.
