Brandon Spikes must learn that we live in the world of online video.  After last year's World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party you would think that Spikes would know that actions caught on video could land you in hot water if it goes viral.

He hasn't learned.

Now circulating on the Internet is a sex video with Brandon Spikes and an unidentified woman.  Give him credit for one thing: this time he's caught making love and not making hate.  The last time he was caught on tape he was gouging at the eyes of Georgia RB Washaun Ealey.

It's still too early to tell how it will affect Spikes, but he has already lost an endorsement deal due to the discovery of the video.  The bigger concern for Spikes is how the NFL will react.

The NFL personal conduct policy states that players are to avoid "conduct detrimental to the integrity of and public confidence in the National Football League."  The NFL is investigating.

One question that comes to mind: "Was Brandon Spikes a Florida Gator or New England Patriot when the video was made?"  How about if the video was made in between being members of either team?

It will be interesting to see how this affects Brandon Spikes going forward.  Regardless, the rich and famous must eventually learn that if you choose to videotape antics that are for your eyes only it may show up on the Internet some day.
