Here’s What The TopShelf Performance Coaches Said

TopShelf coaches TJ and Steph Brown recently appeared for an exclusive interview on Atlanta’s radio station 105.3 The Beat, per Fox News. According to the radio station’s official Instagram account, footage was released of the interview on Monday, February 26.

During the conversation, the coaches were asked to share what prompted the anger between them. But the coaches began by sharing an apology to those impacted by the incident.

“First and foremost, what I want to do is I wanna apologize to everybody that was out there and to the parents of not just our team but everybody,” TJ explained. “Like, that should’ve never happened. We should’ve been able to sit down and talk. There’s no reason we should be yelling at each other while a game’s going on… Ain’t none of that necessary.”

From there, TJ Brown explained that Cam Newton runs a sports organization called C1N. Brown explained there was “a lot of trash talk” from Newton, presumably leading up to Sunday’s 7 v 7 football tournament.

According to TJ, Newton’s comments allegedly continued at the tournament.

“Just out of nowhere just talking crazy to us for no reason and it’s like, it’s not nothing new… this is typical Cam Newton behavior,” he continued.

However, TJ shared that he saw Newton getting in his little brother Steph’s face at the event and then grabbing him.
