Brandon Spikes does a great job of tackling tight ends — on and off the field.
On the field, the Patriots tape game footage (legally of course. We wouldn’t want another Spygate would we?) of their rookie linebacker and review that game footage to make him better.
Off the field, Spikes apparently taped a sexual encounter with a fine-looking woman in a hotel room while on the website Chatroulette.
One man offered to sell the video to Deadspin for $1,500, claiming he had the video and was willing to sell it. Deadspin declined, but the video appeared on the website WorldStarHipHop hours later. I have not included the link on purpose…but you can find what you’re looking for by searching ‘WorldStarHipHop + Brandon Spikes’ in Google.
My curiosity got the best of me, and I went looking for the video. It took a while to navigate WorldStarHipHop’s website due to the fact it’s loaded with ads. I browsed down to posts made on Aug. 30, and as long as you’re 18+ (or just acknowledge that you are), you get free access to the video. And…yes…it’s basically porn on webcam, with a man that looks just like Brandon Spikes, and a woman resembling Kim Kardashian (but it’s definitely not her, just a look-a-like).
Anyway, the NFL is now investigating the video of Spikes to see if it violates the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy. Frankly, it just might, so I would imagine the rookie linebacker (who was probably slated to start) will miss some time due to a suspension (maybe one game?).
