    NFL looks into porn event ad using NFL players
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on June 15, 2011, 10:23 AM EDT


    Five NFL players were featured in a recent advertisement for an Exxxotica Expo 2011 party in Miami last month. The problem: They were in uniform.

    “The NFL office works on behalf of the clubs to protect their intellectual property rights in matters such as this” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told ABC-7 in Chicago, who broke the story.

    The players in the ad who were said to be “hosts” of the party: Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers, Bears safety Major Wright, Chiefs safety Eric Berry, Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson, and Raiders wideout Jacoby Ford. (Here’s the ad.)

    “Our legal team is reviewing the ad. In general, companies not affiliated with the NFL or its clubs may not depict a player in his uniform” said McCarthy.

    The Bears said they are “troubled” by Wright’s usage and believe it’s an inappropriate use of their logo, so they alerted the league about it. They pointed out that sometimes players are unaware their images are used in such events, but ABC-7 calls Wright a “fixture” of the Miami party scene. Rookies like Daniel Thomas and Corey Liuget were also in the ad.

    The event was billed as the official launch party for the Expo, which will take place in the Chicago area in July. It’s said to be the world’s largest gathering of porn stars in the world.

    We know the NFL is losing advertisers because of the lockout, so perhaps they should embrace this as an opportunity.

    What’s more successful (and American) than football and porn?

    Hangin with porn stars?
    Liuget IS legit!

    Expect AJ to have a new question for the draftee interview process next year:

    "Would you accept a position as 'host' of the world's largest porn star gathering?"

    I expect the replies would be: "Is this a trick question"?

    Depends on the GM & owner to define the character they wants in their org. One would hope that AJ overlooks anything that
    1. is legal
    and
    2. doesn't affect performance

    But we'll see...

    Hacksaw is a nitwit. A "bad character" is someone who gets involved in illegal activity...... there is nothing illegal about lending you name to a promotional event like that. You might say that it shows questionable judgment, but calling Liuget a "bad character" is not justified.

    Looks like Hacksaw owes Liuget an apology...... doubt he ever issues one though.

    Players deny involvement in Exxxotica Expo
    Posted by Michael David Smith on June 15, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT


    Hours after news broke that several NFL players appeared in an ad for a porn event called Exxxotica Expo, the players have released statements saying they had no involvement in the event and didn’t know their names and images would be used to advertise it.

    Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson released the following statement: “I wanted to clarify an event that took place on May 20th at Club Play in Florida. I authorized my name to be used at that club with the understanding that it was going to be a party hosted by NFL Players. It was never explained to me or did I ever authorize my name or likeness to be associated with Exxxotica Expo 2011. I am appalled that my name and likeness were used in that capacity. In addition, I never authorized the use of my likeness or picture in my NFL uniform. I apologize to the Houston Texans, their fans and family if I caused any embarrassment. I am sincerely sorry.”

    We’ve received virtually identical statements from other players including Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers, Bears safety Major Wright, Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas and Chargers defensive end Corey Liuget.

    The next Exxxotica Expo takes place in Chicago in July. If you were planning to attend because you hoped to meet an NFL player, you might be disappointed.
