CLEVELAND, OH – Steelers’ recipient Chase Claypole explained Thursday that he was “salty” about Brown because they were “virtually deficient” towards JuJu Smith-Schuster during and after their 48-37 win in the Wild Card Tour.
One day after the match, Claypool said on a live TikTok broadcast, “It’s a bad loss, but Brown will clap next week, so it’s all good.”
He also tore Brown in the corner by Robert Jackson.
Brown’s players like Sion Takitaki, Adrian Claiborne and Karim Hunt responded to Claiball’s comments.
In an interview with DAZN Canada on Thursday, Claypole explained why he made the remarks.
He said, “It doesn’t mean I’m praying for them to get hit really bad, but someone asked me to predict the outcome and that was just a way of saying I think Brown would defeat Brown.” “If the Browns won a little more, I wouldn’t be too salty about it, but they make fun of JuJu. [Smith-Schuster] During and after the match I didn’t sit well with me. ”
Last week, journalists asked Smith Shuster if there was a fresh feeling about Brown due to their recent success. He said, “Nau, I think they’re still the same brown player that I play every year. I think they’re unknown gray faces. They have good players on their team. But at the end of the day … the browns are brown. It’s North Asian football. They are a good team.” I’m glad we’re playing them again. “
Asked about describing what the Browns were doing during Sunday’s game, Claypole said, “They were just classless, you know against JuJu, towards JuJu what they were saying on the field near the end of the match, so I won’t face the respect of a team that doesn’t respect us.”
He said he wouldn’t mind Takitaki and Claiborne applauding him – and he got another chance.
“They can enjoy winning and another week of football, but they’ll be on the sofa next to me, so it’s all good,” he said.
Takitaki denied Claypool’s comments about Brown being “layered” on Thursday.
“I have nothing to say about it,” Takitaki said in an interview with Zoom. “I feel like the game is over. We don’t play these guys. We want to lock up Kansas. But he is clearly a great player. Great player, good kid. But, yeah, we’re locked in Kansas. When we hear all of that, we passed that way too far.”
