What? You never got in an altercation in your lives? And the altercation that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver, Chase Claypool was everything “but” an altercation, let alone a “Bar Fight” like it was made out to be. Check the video below.

Now come on now. That wasn’t even remotely considered a fight by anyone’s standard. Not go mention anything worth trade talks like Still Curtain writer, Tommy Jaggi wrote in his article “Steelers Consider WR Chase Clapool After Recent Bar Fight?

JAGGI: Chase Claypool has given us more than enough reasons to be concerned about his character moving forward.

Are you freaking kidding me? You mean to tell me that Claypool, who in his rookie year surpassed most veteran with 62 receptions, 873 yards and 9 touchdowns should be traded? That 22 year old phenom, Chase Claypool? SHUT THE FUCK UP!

And of course, Jaggi’s article stirred up controversy between Steelers fans on Facebook. The majority of which were against the “trade” innuendo, but there have been a few clueless fans who jumped on the Trade Trade.

Look, Claypool did nothing but push a couple of people off the pile, actions due to protecting a female friend of his who was standing near by. And if you notice at the end of the video, Chase did everything to avoid confrontation. So just let it go. #HereWeGo
