Porn Event Ad Featuring NFL Players Leads To An Investigation By The NFL

The NFL is investigating a porn ad that has current NFL players and three curent rookies on it. The NFL released a statement regarding the issue.

“The NFL office works on behalf of the clubs to protect their intellectual property rights in matters such as this,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said after receiving a copy of an ad for last month’s Exxxotica Expo 2011 in Miami that showed photos of five NFL players — Chicago Bears safety Major Wright, Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers and Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry, Houston Texans defensive back Kareem Jackson and Oakland Raiders wide receiver/kick returner Jacoby Ford — in their team uniforms. .

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

It looks like this is a big deal especially since the lockout is still going on. More information will surely be coming sooner or later.
