Players deny involvement in Exxxotica Expo

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.

UPDATE: As noted by, the fact that Flowers re-tweeted a tweet saying he would attend a porn star extravaganza on May 20 calls into question Flowers’ claim that he objected to the use of his name in connection with the event.

    It was a party hosted by NFL players. It was just after the fact that they did their homework? I’ll believe it when they sue the place out of business. If not, you know they knew.

    if I’m going to an Exxxotica Expo, it’s definitely not to go see NFL players. I’m just saying though..

    The 2005 Vikings will all be there though.

  7. billsfan1 says: Jun 15, 2011 5:50 PM

    Yes because I would go to a porn exhibit in hopes if meeting a second string football player….

  8. waxthat says: Jun 15, 2011 5:53 PM

    Thought Liuget is a defensive tackle?

  9. deadeye says: Jun 15, 2011 5:53 PM

    Now that the lockout could be lifted soon, the extra porn income is no longer necessary.

    Just kidding, I actually believe these guys didn’t realize this would happen and didn’t authorize the use of their names.

    Wait a second, did this article mention the Texans have a cornerback???!!! Must of been a typo.

  11. Southpaw says: Jun 15, 2011 5:59 PM

    You guys have totally been snubbing Anthony Allen… you haven’t mentioned him in any of the three-four articles you have on this, and he released a note of clarification as well

  12. bigtrav425 says: Jun 15, 2011 6:18 PM

    if they did …who cares!

    I’m sure that Joe Cullen is making travel arrangements as he reads this post…..

    fyi nobody was going in hopes of meeting an nfl player…

  15. jsratx says: Jun 15, 2011 7:02 PM

    Who said Kareem Jackson couldn’t cover?

    (his ass)

  16. dg0122 says: Jun 15, 2011 7:11 PM

    if they watched him play, they would not have wanted kareem jackson on the flyer

  17. jpmelon says: Jun 15, 2011 7:14 PM

    Players are not allowed to sign away the use of their jersey in any contract unless the NFL franchise also consents. I’m not a lawyer, but I’ll bet the Expo bent a few promises/permissions when they picked the photos to show.

    I’m so sorry…not! This is my evil work. I just needed some material to help promote my new fembot videos.

  19. djaehne says: Jun 15, 2011 7:32 PM

    everyone of them were probably getting ho
    sauce for the bbq at Kareem Jackson’s house
    this weekend. Hey, who says he’s second string.
    Dude, didn’t you see how high up he was drafted?
    hahaha backup for thrid string at best.

    “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.”

    Note: Jackson didn’t say he had “no involvement in the event.”

    I’m trying to understand what the problem here is. Someone fill me in

  22. hobartbaker says: Jun 15, 2011 8:30 PM

    Now the boys got to Exxxplain. Or become Exxx players.

  23. hobartbaker says: Jun 15, 2011 8:59 PM

    The guys were all promised free Penis Exxxtentions in exchange for their participation.

  24. hobartbaker says: Jun 15, 2011 9:02 PM

    Kareem’s Mom want to know “What exxxactly goin’ on down there?”.

  25. j0esixpack says: Jun 15, 2011 9:11 PM

    The bad news for these guys is that they’re going to lose the respect of all those people who previously looked to them as role models.

    The good news for these guys is that they’re going to gain the respect of all those boys and men who now look to them as role models.

    To be honest porn stars and pro athlete groupies aren’t that far from each other on the scale.
    The difference is the porn stars get paid to have sex on camera and the groupies give it away for free.

  27. jesse1834 says: Jun 15, 2011 9:49 PM

    The NFL needs to worry about getting a deal done, not some stupid porn event. These guys are over 18 and allowed to attend these events. WTFC!!!! Get over it and work on putting a F’ing product on the field next year.

  28. genericcommenter says: Jun 15, 2011 9:54 PM

    They are adults. Most U.S. adults are willing consumers of porn. What is the problem? I can think of many worse things that pro athletes could be ( and have been) associated with, many that are a lot more harmful than porn.

  29. hobartbaker says: Jun 15, 2011 10:28 PM

    Roger will be very exxxplicit with these guys in pointing out the errors of their ways. His tirade may well be loaded with exxxpletives.

  30. thejokewriter says: Jun 15, 2011 11:03 PM

    Porn stars using NFL players to lure in the public…Now that’s a “money shot” to the…Well, you know!

  31. theblowtorchreview says: Jun 16, 2011 12:02 AM

    No ConVick?

    Seems like this would be right up his alley!

  32. sowcrates says: Jun 16, 2011 12:23 AM

    I can’t help but suspect if the cost of advertising this event through sports media was actually higher than the potential legal costs of deliberately inciting this scandal knowing that in the era of non-stories in the locked-out NFL, they’d get themselves a home run in national coverage with player controversy.

    Deliberate legal violation, which in the internet era produce instant, nationwide attention, is fast becoming a money-saving alternative to formal advertising

  33. jskill3 says: Jun 16, 2011 1:20 AM

    It makes sense they invited Kareem. Everyone in his vicinity scores.

  34. couldntthinkofaname says: Jun 16, 2011 5:01 AM

    Man, all my friends went to the Exxxotica Expo 2011 and all I got was some lousy blow-up doll!

  35. souldogdave says: Jun 16, 2011 7:54 AM

    Other NFL players under contract have been hangin’ with the porn stars. Terrell Owens did promo, there were others. It sends a sleazy message to young fans. The “heroes” they look up to carry guns, hang with hoes, wear outrageous bling, and act like gangster-rappers. The morals cause in their contracts could be used to stop this, but if it is a very good player, the team will tiptoe through incidents, and that’s it. Weak, disgusting, but true.
    They lie, and cheat.A great message for the youth of today.
