Joe Thomas backs Cavs with his own jersey bet

Browns safety Damarious Randall went viral this week when a post promising to buy a jersey for everyone who retweeted him zoomed across the internet.

Randall has racked up more than 761,000 retweets, although a former member of the Browns might push that number before all is said and done. Unlike Randall, recently retired left tackle Joe Thomas is backing the Cleveland squad in a series that gets underway on Thursday night. He’s also going a step further by promising to get those retweeters signed, game-worn jerseys.

Thomas followed that tweet up with another one saying he’d get people the jersey of their choice rather than limiting it to a Curry jersey.

Thomas’ tweet racked up more than 90,000 retweets in just over six hours, which will make even Eli Manning wonder how Thomas will be able to get his hands on that many game-worn jerseys in the event he has to follow through once the NBA season comes to an end.

  1. He’ll just take a note out of his old coach’s playbook and jump in the lake when he sees fit. Thomas will buy the jerseys, but wait until 2081 until he does.

    Gold Jerry, Gold!

  3. We get it, Joe. You like Cleveland. Unless LeBron clones himself four times before tomorrow night, Warriors in 3 and a half.

  4. somebody will try to sue one of these guys when it happens and nothing is given out…

    that’s the country we live in now…

  5. Nice work Thomas – Randall is probably feeling a bit foolish for the post. Thomas was a class act to hang one out there with his so he wasn’t alone.

  6. I will buy every one in this comment post a signed PFT jersey if he series ends in a tie

  7. Careful here, Pepsi once had a Harrier Jump Jet ( high end military plane listed as a ” Pepsi Points ” prize if someone collected 7 million Pepsi Points.
    Some guy did it, Pepsi tried to say it was a joke and give the guy a couple of cases of Pepsi. He didn’t get the Jet, but did get $700,000 in court.

  8. Anybody knows how to get in touch with Joe Thomas..???
    I just happen to have 95.000 game worn ( and with a certificate of authenticity) Stephen Curry’s jerseys…that he can have for a very fair price…

    Exactly – The Cavs are going to get completely ambushed. 0.000000% chance cleveland wins, and im pretty gd befuddled at anyone that thinks that this Cavs team has any semblance of a chance against Golden State

  10. I think the outcome on the Pepsi Points case had something to do with Pepsi profiting on the sales. In this case there is no consideration or risk given by the twitterheads.

  11. Across12042004scorp15 – What your saying about the Pepsi points case isn’t true. The guy collected 15 Pepsi points and noticed a fine print that said you could buy Pepsi points for 10 cents each so he got 5 investors and sent a check for nearly 700,000 and the 15 pepsi points for the jet and was denied by Pepsi and then he lost in court what he got was his money returned. Big difference than what you said. As the judge in the case even said something along the lines of the kid in the commercial not being old or big enough to be trusted with car keys wouldn’t be able to take a jet to school showed the commercial was meant in jest the same way Joe Thomas and Randall’s tweets were meant.

  12. As much as the NBA protects lePED and blatantly rigs games for him to win, why would anyone think the NBA won’t do it yet again like they rigged it in 2016. Boston looked like they were ordered by lebrons puppet Adam Silver to throw game 7.
