Damarious Randall Didn't Expect Cavaliers Jersey Tweet to Go Viral

Jersey promise could leave Browns player in red if Cavs win

Jersey promise could leave Browns player in red if Cavs win

Randall had over 400,000 retweets as of late Tuesday afternoon, and that number is climbing fast. Things could get costly for the NFL football player but there's no doubt he's counting on the Cavaliers to take home the big trophy.

Randall only has about 135,000 followers, but as of 5:00 p.m. ET Wednesday, his tweet had roughly 825,000 retweets.

A native of Pensacola, Fla., Randall has quickly discovered that Cleveland fans stick together and if you disrespect one team, you incur the wrath of the masses.

His posts about the Cavs vs. Warriors matchup didn't sit well with Cleveland fans. Official jerseys go for roughly $100, so Randall would be looking at a bill of over $82 million.

"I mean, I definitely didn't think the Cleveland fan base would go this insane about it". Randall said he was referring to Quicken Loans Arena, and said he merely likes Curry.

According to Tim Daniels of Bleacher Report, Randall's tweet flew past Detroit Lions punter Sam Martin's tweet about buying dog food for Hurricane Harvey victims.

She could be considered the most unlucky of seeds in a Grand Slam , for there can never have been a more unsafe floater in the draw.

Naturally, many Cleveland fans don't want to hear it.

While other Twitter users have cast doubt on whether the newly acquired defensive back will follow through, he tweeted back at one skeptic on Monday with the promise he would "100 percent" keep his promise. When he's going against Steph, I would rather Steph over LeBron.

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

The Cleveland fan base called his bluff. "Obviously it got the whole world excited about it, and now I'm actually excited about it".

Asked whether he has a plan he can put into motion should the Cavs upset the Warriors, Randall said, "I mean I guess we'll have to watch the series and see".

With Game 1 of the NBA Finals set for Thursday night in Oakland, California, Randall has said he intends to be courtside when the series comes to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4 next week. I definitely didn't think the Cleveland fan base would go this insane about it.
