Could Antonio Brown Allegation Lead To An NFL-Wide Audit?

November 19th, 2021

Bucs WR Antonio Brown

Innocent or guilty, furniture-tossing, bicycle-throwing Bucs receiver Antonio Brown may have opened a can of worms for all NFL players.

That’s the word from the creator, curator and overall guru of Pro Football Talk, the great Mike Florio.

The NFL is investigating whether Brown allegedly tried to con the Bucs with a fake V-card after his (former?) personal chef sicced a Hollywood celebrity sex tape broker on the Bucs to try to get the chef paid (he claims Brown owes him some $10,000).

Florio, a lawyer, was a guest on “The Rich Eisen Show” today seen on Peacock and explained verifying whether a V-card is legit or not is a very simple process.

Additionally, Florio noted if the NFL really does care about players as they always claim, the league may be moved by the alleged Brown escapade to do an audit of every players’ V-cards to verify they actually took the jab (for those who claim they did).

Joe truly hopes that if any player was using a fake V-card, they either fess up or go get the jab before this Bucs team gets in any more hot water as they attempt to defend their Super Bowl championship. Joe cannot stress how important it is for the Bucs to have Brown, especially in the push for the playoffs. The Bucs are 5-0 with Brown and 1-3 without him.

That right there tells you all you need to know about his importance.

You can hear and see Florio’s full spot with Eisen discussion fake V-cards in the Peacock video below.

    The NFL is about lip service. They don’t care if players faked it, but they do care about negative press. They’ll selectively punish AB if he falsified a v-card, and sweep everything else under the rug.

  2. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Brown didn’t open up any can of worms.
    The extortionist and media did.
    Total BS , Joe.

    Truth is, no one should care. You do you and let me decide what I want and move on

    AB getting crucified for MAYBE lying about being vaxxd & not following nonvaxxed protocol. Massive national news, league-wide audits, etc.–DB12 gets a fine for doing the same exact thing & everyone is happy.

    Andy Reid’s kid ruins a child’s life, while a chief employee drinking at chief office with other chiefs–chiefs get praised for offering financial assistance to the child…I just saw this on BSPN. Shame on me for going.

    Some days I need to ignore the planet.

  5. Marine Buc Says:

    The NFL and it head goon Roger Goodell are playing with fire… If they were smart they would make this whole thing go away as quickly as possible.

    Down with Joe Biden’s RACIST vaccine mandates!!!

  8. David Says:

    It should … if they want to open up that Pandora’s box. If they don’t, the Buccaneers should call them out

  9. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    The NFL has real problems lately, with Gruden’s Lawsuit, and the one probably coming from the St Louis Rams owner.
    If it was anyone BUT Mike Florio bringing this up, I would ignore it, but Mike Florio is a Lawyer!

  10. Bif Barker Says:

    Gruden was singled out by an NFL investigation. Somebody was out to get him. Will AB, possibly, be next?

  11. KvilleBucFan Says:

    We moved from Florida to Tennessee and in less than 2 minutes Tennessee had both my kids’ immunization records. I recently lost my wallet. Vaccine card was in it. Tennessee already had Proof and while they couldn’t replace my vaccine card they did mail photo copy and a long form to my home within the week. Local pharmacy where I was vaccinated was out of cards. Needed what Tennessee mailed me to go to another Walgreens to get a new vaccine card. Should take less than 5 minutes and AB can say ok now what? Leave me alone we’re after another ring! Or maybe he can join Rogers in the liars club

  12. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Were the vaccine mandates I received in basic training…lost track of the shots I took…or the mandated vaxxes I was FORCED to absorb before attending public schools. Were those also racist? Just checkin’.

  13. Listnfrmafar Says:

    I was walking my dogs yesterday and overhead flew two military helicopters in parallel. This is something rarely seen, I don’t live near a military base. Then I thought to myself about the places in this world where this is common place but those viewing this are running and hiding for their lives. These countries where women are considered servants and are not allowed to be educated or men, women & children are tortured, starving or enslaved with no remorse. For the last I don’t know year and a half I’ve been bitter because every media vehicle has been sterotyping me as a racist. Ya know what, F the media and F the politicians on both sides that mess with our minds so we promote their initiatives. The haters will hate no matter your race but if you’re a good person continue to be one, do the right thing don’t listen to the outsiders be your own person and most of all appreciate what we have and remember, other than the trolls we all share a common bond hoping the Bucs repeat. Joe, thank you for that!

  14. Buccaneric Says:

    Can’t imagine paying money to falsify a card instead of getting a free shot that guarantees better health—as a pro athlete where your career depends on it.

    SMH. Only bicycle throwing yada yada psychos would do such a thing.

    I hope this pulls the team together if they start this crap.

  17. ClodHopper Says:

    I cant think of anything I want more than to find out how many fakes are in the NFL. This sounds like a delicious story I want to continue.

  18. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Agreed, Listnfrmafar.

  19. Jp09 Says:

    Hahahahah guarantees better health?!?

  20. Pruritus Ani Says:

    If he did, he isn’t the only one. If the league decides to go down this rabbit hole, it could be quite messy. It definitely has the potential for being a huge distraction going forward….for everyone.

  21. Jp09 Says:

    Greater than a 99% survival rate is enough of a guarantee for me not to get the shot

  22. Marine Buc Says:

    @ Clod

    I would bet my Aunt May’s undies that a large percentage of the NFL is not really vaccinated including our beloved Tom Brady…

    Just like Aaron Rodgers – these are highly educated, intelligent people with lots of doctors and medical professionals who have done their research and know better than to stick a multi-million dollar body with the big pharma experimental poison…

  23. Jp09 Says:

    “Bucs are 5-0 with Brown and 1-3 without him”

    This is what, the second or third time you’ve said this? While the statement is true, it is broad and it is misleading. That does not tell the reader everything they need to know about his importance.

    Let’s not forget the defense coughed up the farm to guys like Siemien and Heineken beer.

    Let’s also not forget that Brown was NOT a key factor in last years playoffs. Only caught a combined 3 passes in the first two games, completely missed the NFC Championship, and caught a meaningless TD in a blowout defensive rout in the Super Bowl.

    My family and I have all had it twice already. Nothing but a mild flu to us. This yr we had over 3 million Tourists here. I didn’t even catch a cold and still haven’t. It seems like my natural immunity trumps the rushed virus that made big Pharma TRILLIONS of dollars in one yr. Things that make you go hmmmm

  33. NativeSonX Says:

    The scale of how much Big Pharma will make over the course of this pandemic is significant, but is way overblown from some commenters here. No pharmaceutical product has ever eclipsed 1 trillion dollars in profits (after factoring out manufacturing cost) over the course of its patent life. Lipitor, which I’m sure a few of this sites users have used and improved their health outcomes, made $131 billion in sales between 1997-2011 during its patent protection period, making it the most profitable prescribed drug. In contrast, per MarketWatch, Pfizer (in a partnership with the EU’s BioNTech) and Moderna made $17.2 billion collectively in 2021 Q1 and a projected $18 billion in Q3, which is a far cry from the trillions someone else purported. (There isn’t a published number for Q2 in the article). Janssen (J&J’s Pharmaceutical development division) made $264 million in Q1 and projected $500 million in Q3. Pfizer didn’t take any Operation Warp Speed funding, which means their shareholders bore all the R&D costs and haven’t gotten any supplemental funding from BARDA (Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority) under the NIH. The vast majority of their profitability would come this year, as the percentage of the unvaccinated diminishes over time (boosters getting less profitable later) and the marketplace will eventually be saturated with more products from other drug makers getting FDA approval (e.g., Novavax) driving per dose costs down as well as profit margins (the invisible hand working in Capitalism).

    As the pandemic will eventually wind down and become most likely endemic, the cost per vaccine dose will diminish over time, just like the quadrivalent influenza (flu) vaccine which nets pharma companies annual profit of $3 billion collectively. Antiretroviral (ARV) treatments for HIV have a longer financial track record of lasting profits and despite some of their well-known adverse side effects (as stated in recent PReP commercials for Discovy and Truvada), patient still take them, so they don’t die from uncommon exotic diseases from their compromised immune system. There are give or take 23-24 major HIV drugs on the market today (Cabotegravir being one of the newest) costing an individual patient $1800 to $4500 monthly (depending on the drug cocktail tailored to genotypic make up of their virus), whereas a jab of Pfizer or Moderna is costing roughly $19.50 per jab (at the discounted pandemic rate) for the US tax payer. Drug costs for HIV treatments are mostly borne by either Medicare/Medicaid via ADAP or medical insurance policy holders. However cost to healthcare system and those unfortunate souls in the ICU are costing everyone astronomically, at an average of $20k a stay. “June through August 2021, preventable COVID-19 hospitalizations among unvaccinated (287,000 cases) adults cost over $5 Billion.” — Peterson-KFF Health System Tracker.

    You may not be personally affected, but if by off chance your parents or grandparents get it and have an adverse or deadly outcome, you too will be coughing up more than the pair of Andrew Jacksons it took to get the shot to protect them. As far as I know medical insurance providers are becoming more strict in sharing treatment costs if you chose to stay unvaccinated and get unlucky with the affects of a COVID-19 infection. If you choose this riskier behavior, don’t be surprise if the insurance companies, the state and federal government don’t extend a helping hand this time around, if somehow you aren’t part of the 99.98% some of us like to quote from time time, that get a mild or asymptomatic reaction. You’re chances of being healthy and still dying of this disease is magnitudes more likely than winning the power ball. It just take the virus one or two or a dozen lucky mutations to make your healthy immune system a target (cytokine storm) for a more devastating disease outcome. The unvaccinated will be the reason this pandemic lingers as long as it does and all the direct (death toll nearing 800K) and indirect consequences (public health costs rising, compromised health care system (ICU bed scarcity), supply chain disruptions, inflation, loss wages due to pandemic unemployment, diminished returns from a disrupted education) have converged because they chose themselves first before protecting others. Winter is coming.

  34. B-Bro Says:

    If the vax was close to 100% safe that’s one thing and I believe those with medical conditions where covid may take their life to take the shot if that’s THEIR choice but to force shots on everyone GFY brandon

  35. Kalind Says:

    Feels like this would be a great time for the Glazers to stand up and say that’s enough. Tell Roger to go kick rocks and take his auditors with him. No thank you and GFTO. They are owners after all. Time to start acting like it.
    This ownership group rolls over for the league at every possible point while more active owners get their way routinely.

    For something as stupid and devoid of supporting data as this policy is, high time the Glazers say no.

  36. Cobraboy Says:

    A full 100% audit of every player’s vaxxx status would be awesome! Go for it! Let us see how the grunts in the NFL actually think about the vaxxxes.

    I suspect a yuge % of coaches and players are unvaxxxed, including the Bucs , not the 1-2% crap propaganda we’ve been told.

  37. Cobraboy Says:

    a free shot that guarantees better health

    OMG! I just spit my delicious morning coffee out of my nose!

  38. Dom Says:

    Some of you guys saying the vaccine isn’t safer than getting civid are ridiculous. Why are nearly all of the deaths and hospitalizations from people that aren’t fully vaccinated. Vaccines throughout centuries have helped against illnesses and this is no different. Modern medicine is better than ever and the vaccine turned something that was a pandemic into a seasonal illness. Now obviously there are people that will be just fine without the vaccine. Typically those that are young and healthy (you know like NFL players). However, a strong majority of Americans would fall into the category of having pre existing conditions such as obesity, heart issues, etc, and that is also not including the elderly who are at risk. At the end of the day, at this point I believe a lot of the mandates are a bit much now. Like I said we have a vaccine that has turned a pandemic into a seasonal illness and it is free and avaible to anyone that wants it.

    You are apparently living in a fact free reality.

    Another disinformation boob.

  40. Marine Buc Says:

    @ sassylittlesqauth

    The vaccines are so safe the FDA and Pfizer have decided not to allow any testing data or information to be released until 2076…

    Enjoy your much deserved myocarditis you dolt…

  41. Sparky Says:

    @Marine Buc you just made that up.

    Anyways, there is NO way the NFL wants to investigate this because I guarantee there are dozens of players that used fake cards. And big names too.

  42. sasquatch Says:


    One study reports the incidence of 1 case of myocarditis per 50,000 vaccines… and myocarditis is usually a temporary and not usually serious condition.

    Meanwhile, 1 in 500 of your fellow Americans have now died from Covid.


  43. mark2001 Says:

    But can you imagine the skills of that “longest yard” football team, made up of guys like Rae Caruth, his buddies, and the fake V card holders. Serves them right, but what a team…..

  44. mark2001 Says:

    No sense in arguing with the “fake news alternative reality” crowd. Good luck boys… me and mine are all vaxxed and doing fine. I think I’ll go to Disneyworld to celebrate the increased financial wellness of Medicare and Social Security, as some folks deliberately pass on prematurely and saved us all those “last year” Medicare expenses and years of SS benefit payments. I guess that is their voluntary sacrifice for this great country. If it wasn’t a conscious decision of their own making, I might feel badly for them. But as it is… go for it.

  45. sasquatch Says:

    The anti-vax alternative truth crowd suffers from basic problems with math.

  46. Marine Buc Says:

    @ spanky

    It’s on the front page of – FDA wants 55 years in order to process a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request…

    LOL!!! I guess they have nothing to hide huh?

  47. Marine Buc Says:

    google it you dolts.

  48. Marine Buc Says:

    I’m sure it has nothing to do with Dr. Scott Gottlieb. You know the guy who ran the FDA for years and now sits on the Board of Directors for Pfizer.


  49. sasquatch Says:

    One can look for conspiracies, and some suspicion might be reasonable…

    Unfortunately for the alternative facts crowd, the vaccines have worked pretty well and have proven to be safe. It’s still true that the overwhelming percentage of hospitalizations and deaths are unvaccinated. It’s also true that incidence of serious side effects have been quite low — far lower than the percentage of the population that have died of Covid.


  50. Marine Buc Says:



    Is it still a “conspiracy if it is true?

    Again – just google is billy bob…

    Do you know how to use google?

    Type in the words FDA and 55 years and FOIA request.

    Then hit enter key.

    Then look at it with your big bloodshot eyeballs.

  51. sasquatch Says:

    I read it dumbass. Still doesn’t prove some dangerous conspiracy. Dolt.

    The vaccines are effective.

  52. Marine Buc Says:

    Fact #1 – the vaccines don’t stop you from catching Covid.
    Fact #2 – the vaccines don’t stop you from spreading Covid.
    Fact #3 – the vaccines don’t stop you from being hospitalized from Covid.
    Fact #4 – the vaccines don’t stop you from dying from Covid.
    Fact #5 – nobody knows what the long term side effects from the vaccines are.
    Fact #6 – the FDA is hiding the testing data and vaccine information for 55 years.
    Fact #7 – the vaccines are being used under an EUA (Emergency Use Authorization) which means they have zero liabilities.

    No thank you.

    Please feel free to list your facts.

  53. sasquatch Says:

    Your facts are so far from reality. You’re a ware of time.

  54. sasquatch Says:


    They greatly reduce illness, transmissibility, hospitalization, and death. The data on this is unequivocal. Not that you’d care about actual data, because it involves numbers, which might be a problem for you.

    I’m not sure how you manage to feed yourself.

  55. sasquatch Says:

    Also, “fact man”, they’re not under EUA anymore — they’ve been under full approval for quite awhile now. But that was never reported in the alternative truth reality bubble you’re in.

    Give me some more “facts”, disinformation boy. I can’t wait.

  56. Marine Buc Says:

    YOUR WRONG AGAIN – one vaccine was approved by the FDA from Pfizer, the BioNTech vaccine marketed as Comirnaty which has not yet been made available on a large scale.

    The rest of the vaccines are still being used on the EUA.

    Now they have just (10/29/21) extended the EAU to 5-11 year olds

    Please stop spreading your dangerous pro big pharma conspiracy theories on here…

  57. Marine Buc Says:

    *EUA not EAU

  58. mark2001 Says:

    From Nebraska Medicine….In terms of what is contained inside the vial of each they are identical. Pfizer and BioNTech simply formally “branded” or named their vaccine Comirnaty.

    BioNTech is the German biotechnology company that partnered with Pfizer in bringing this COVID-19 vaccine to market.

    “Pfizer Comirnaty” and “Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine” are biologically and chemically the same thing.

  59. Marine Buc Says:


    “Nebraska medicine”?????

    Ya right mark.

  60. mark2001 Says:

    It has been fact checked as being the same thing elsewhere.

    Where did you get your “alternative facts”, loser?

  61. mark2001 Says:

    But to be fair, I didn’t win a war either.

  62. Marine Buc Says:

    Regardless of the corrupt Pfizer – what about Moderna? what about J and J?

    Also please tell me exactly what the known long term side effects are.

    Can you do that for please…

  63. Marine Buc Says:

    *Can you do that for me please…

  64. Marine Buc Says:

    If they are the “same thing” why is Pfizer changing the name to Comirnaty?

    Answer that one big pharma guy…

  65. Marine Buc Says:

    Per the CDC website – the only vaccine being offered from Pfizer currently is the BioNTech vaccine.

    No mention at all of the “FDA approved” Cominarty at all…

    So I was right. Every vaccine currently being offered is still under EUA.

  66. sasquatch Says:

    ^ Wrong.

    The Pfizer-Biontech vaccine doesn’t have a brand name until full authorization.

    Comirnaty is the name they gave it when full auth was received. So yes, Comirnaty is a fully FDA authorized product.

  67. Cobraboy Says:

    There will not be one human to get jabbed with Comirnaty, because the liability shield awarded under the EUA is no longer in force. Clearly, Pfizer knows better than to expose themselves…and shareholders…to liability for their poison.

    And whether or not the two EGTs are the same is moot: neither has shown the exact contents nor what their secret sauce is.

    And please explain why Pfizer has asked the courts to seal the results of their studies FOR 55 YEARS!

    While the Vax Covidians are at it, I keep looking for long-term studies of the EGTs. Maybe you Big Pharma trusting Vax Covidians can link them to me. Heck, I’ll even accept a Phase III trial study.

  68. sasquatch Says:

    Cobraboy Says:
    November 20th, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    There will not be one human to get jabbed with Comirnaty

    Every Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine being given is Comirnaty. It’s just a brand name. Same formula, FDA approved.

    The 55 years is the amount of time the FDA says it will take to review and process all the requested documentation given its current staffing. There’s no evidence of cover-up. Just alternative truth viral conspiracy talking points floating around.

    Hundreds of millions of doses have been delivered. Very low incidence of serious side effects. Demonstrated reduction of illness, transmissibility, hospitalizations, and death. The rest of the world is asking for the vaccines, but here in the good ole U S of A, a dedicated cult of right wing boobs keeps our vaccination rate lower than the rest of the industrialized world… and meanwhile, we continue to have greater spread of the disease, and the boobs haven’t done the math yet… Duh.

  69. mark2001 Says:

    They just won’t listen to real facts or reason, sasquatch. When you ask them where they get their “facts”, they only parrot similar facts gathered from some unchecked conspiratorial talking head or dark web site. None are verifiable or from a reputable medical source.
    You might as well just thank them for buying into the nonsense, and giving their lives for our country… by freeing up a job position for a young American, for donating their potential unused SS and Medicare benefits to stay in the coffer. Save our emotional sadness for those that are innocent people with horrible immune systems and such that are now the real victims. These guys want to jump off the skyway…just wish them a good flight. And get ready for the next round of this disease.

  70. sasquatch Says:

    @mark… yeah, it’s both infuriating and pointless to try getting through to the alternative reality cult… I have a lot of concern about where the country is headed when there are legions of people who think of Steve Bannon and Tucker Carlson as truthtellers, and make a punching bag out of Dr. Fauci. Unwittingly or not, they make themselves tools of people who aim to destroy the notion of truth to undermine democracy.

  71. mark2001 Says:

    Right on the money sasquatch. Live well and take care of you and yours. We’re just casting the proverbial pearls…And they will be the first to blame their wretched outcomes on guys like us. In the mean time, their “truth tellers” laugh at them all the way to the bank.

  74. mark2001 Says:

    sasquatch,….gp is a paycheck to paycheck pain in the backside fake news acolyte. Pretty soon he will try to make a childlike agreement with you to both stay off the board for a couple days, likely while he is busy working. Don’t mind him. He will disappear when he goes back to work on Monday.

  75. gp Says:

    Can you have a circle jerk with just two participants?
    Cause neither one is capable of the type of emotional commitment a one on one would require.
    Anonymity strikes again!!!
