He added, “He said, ‘P–’ I and I said, ‘P–You.’” He started coming to me and I said, “You don’t want these problems.” Then Ja came out of nowhere.”

Sharpe continued, “He certainly didn’t want those problems. Then Daddy came along and he obviously didn’t want any problems. But I wanted anything they had. Don’t let those idiots fool you now.”

Sharp added: “They’re doing all that talking and dueling and I’m not talking about all that maneuvering.”
