Gronk Racks Up $100k Tab ... At Casino Turn-Up

6/19/2017 8:50 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

How much does it cost to party with Rob Gronkowski for a night? More than most people make in a year ... 'cause Gronk and Co. racked up a HUGE $100k tab at a casino nightclub over the weekend.

TMZ Sports obtained the itemized receipt for Gronk and his 20-man party crew at Shrine at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut this weekend.

We spoke with a PR rep for the Shrine bar who says the receipt is legit. It's pretty awesome. 

In total, Gronk's gang tore through 160 BOTTLES OF CHAMPAGNE including:

- 18 bottles of Ace of Spades Rose: $18,000

- 15 bottles of Dom Perignon Rose: $27,000

There's more ... including 16 bottles of Grey Goose for $10,400, 45 orders of Maker's Mark, 24 shots of Jim Beam Fire, 3 bottles of Don Julio 1942. These guys weren't messin' around. 

It's unclear who footed the bill (most likely the casino) ... but it's not like Gronk can't afford it anyway -- dude's gonna make more than $4 mil next year.

It's good to be Gronk.

Rob Gronkowski I Lost My Shirt at the Casino ... Turns Up with Flo Rida

6/19/2017 7:10 AM PDT
Breaking News

Rob Gronkowski proved he's shaved from head to toe -- ripping off his shirt and partying with Flo Rida at Shrine at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut ... and we got the pics.

The New England Patriots TE showed with a party crew and went H.A.M. when Flo started performing -- doing his usual dancing, boozing, removing clothing thing.

Gronk and Flo have been friends for a while -- the rapper was a special guest on Gronk's legendary party cruise last off-season.

Per usual with Gronk, the guy goes on a party tear before the season begins ... and Tom Brady has previously said he doesn't care as long as the guy shows up ready to play when it counts.

No word on if anyone ever found Gronk's shirt.

Vikings' Latavius Murray Draft Me In Fantasy ... You Won't Regret It!

6/19/2017 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

First things first ... Latavius Murray says he's NOT replacing Adrian Peterson in Minnesota. You can't replace a legend. 

That said, LM says if you get the chance to draft him in your fantasy league ... DO IT!!!! 

The Vikings running back tells TMZ Sports he's fired up to get on the field with his new squad -- and promises to be your secret weapon when it comes to punishing your FF opponents. 

"Draft me man ... 'cause I'm a guy that has a nose for the end zone and I'm gonna continue to do that and do all I can to put them points on the board!"

SOLD! 

Latavius also has some thoughts on his former squad, the Oakland Raiders, moving to Vegas -- and explains why he's not worried one bit. 

Michael Floyd Tests Positive for Alcohol ... During House Arrest

6/16/2017 8:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bad news for Michael Floyd ... the Minnesota Vikings WR tested positive for alcohol during his house arrest this week, TMZ Sports has learned -- and it could mean jail time for the NFL star. 

A rep for the Scottsdale City Court confirms ... Floyd's alcohol monitoring system flagged 5 events during June 11th and 12th. At least three of the events were described to us as "high alcohol tests."

Floyd is not supposed to have a single drop of booze while on house arrest, as part of the sentencing in his Arizona DUI arrest from Dec. 2016, when he was found passed out behind the wheel of his car

As we previously reported, Floyd begged the court to remove his alcohol monitoring ankle bracelet because it would hinder him from playing football. The judge granted the request but ordered Floyd to undergo random breath tests. 

A court rep tells us Floyd blamed the positive tests on Kombucha -- a fermented tea that contains a very low amount of alcohol. Typically, Kombucha contains equal or less alcohol than a non-alcoholic beer. 

The issue for Floyd ... his alcohol tests all came back showing a B.A.C. of between .044 and .055, which would be hard to do on Kombucha alone. He also skipped one of his breath tests altogether. 

If the court rules he violated the terms of his house arrest, Floyd could be ordered back to jail. 

He's due back in court on June 26th.  We reached out to Floyd's camp for comment. So far, no word back. 

10:33 AM PT -- Floyd denies any wrongdoing saying, "Totally false. The whole thing is false."

Despite his claims, the Scottsdale City Court records show he's due in court on June 26th for an "Order to Show Cause" hearing. 

And furthermore, Floyd's house arrest was scheduled to end Friday -- but in light of the flagged tests, he will remain on house arrest at least until the June 26 hearing, so says a rep for Scottsdale City Court. 

9:44 AM PT -- The Minnesota Vikings released a statement, saying "We are aware of the situation involving Michael Floyd and are looking into the matter. We are still gathering facts and will withhold any further comment at this time."

Ex-Giants QB Sued Bragged About 'Happy Endings' ... with Joe Namath

6/15/2017 12:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NY Giants quarterback Joe Pisarcik -- who became CEO of the NFL Alumni Association -- is being sued for allegedly sexually harassing 3 female employees ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Pisarcik played 8 years in the NFL before going corporate. He's most well-known for his fumble during the "Miracle at the Meadowlands" game back in 1978.

But now, 3 women who worked under Pisarcik at the NFLAA say he constantly subjected them to intense sexual harassment including butt smacks, lewd comments and unwanted advances.

In the lawsuit, filed in state court in NJ, the women say Pisarcik ruined a Christmas lunch when he started regaling the women about a sex story involving Joe Namath.

The women claim Pisarcik told the group he and Namath picked up 2 ladies one evening and got "happy endings" -- which the women understood to mean "the men were given HJs or BJs."

Pisarcik allegedly then told the plaintiffs about how many women he and Joe banged together when they lived together in Florida back in the day ... and even bragged about nailing Joe's GF one night when the QB passed out.

Ron Jaworski is also mentioned in the lawsuit because he's on the NFLAA's board of directors. The women say Pisarcik would also brag about how many girls Ron banged, too.

In their suit, the woman claim they notified the NFLAA board about the alleged incident in Oct. 2016. They checked back in Dec. after nothing had been done and were told the NFLAA wanted to delay the matter until after the Super Bowl for fear of bad publicity. 

Pisarcik retired in April 2017 -- and 2 of the women claim they were fired in May. They believe they were terminated as retaliation for reporting Pisarcik.

We reached out to both the NFLAA and Pisarcik -- neither elected to comment.

EXCLUSIVE

Greg Hardy's NFL comeback is still alive and well thanks to The Spring League ... which announced the ex-Carolina Panthers star will headline a new showcase game in front of NFL scouts this July.

The developmental league added the game following its successful first season -- we're told over 20% of players were signed/invited to NFL camps -- and the plan is to give teams one final chance to check out the talent before training camps begin in late July.

Hardy -- as well as ex-S.F. 49ers running back Anthony "Boobie" Dixon and other NFL vets -- will be there, and we're told more than 25 teams will be there to check out the players.

The game will take place on July 15 in Napa, CA ... and will be nationally televised on FloSports and streamed on Twitter. 

N.Y. Jets Star Buster Skrine No Way Jets Suck This Season!! … ‘Our Year Right Here’

6/13/2017 9:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Forget what ya heard about the Jets being the NFL's worst team ... Gang Green star Buster Skrine says the squad is gonna shock the world in 2017. 

TMZ Sports caught up with Buster in NYC, and asked the veteran CB for his message to the embattled Jets Nation ... “This our year right here!”

It’s a big statement considering the Jets finished dead last in the AFC East last year (5-11), and have unloaded some of their best players like Eric Decker in the off-season.

Skrine said he's sad to see Decker go -- but his release is “all business” ... and he clearly believes the team will win without him.

Breaking News

Seattle Seahawks stud Michael Bennett says there's NO ban on Future's music in the Seattle Seahawks locker room ... despite that tricky situation with Russell Wilson

Bennett appeared on "The Breakfast Club" with Charlamagne tha God -- and was asked if the team is required to keep Future off their playlists to appease the star QB, who's married to Ciara, Future's baby mama.

Obviously, Wilson and Future have beefed in the past -- though things appear to be cool right now. 

Bennett says he doesn't play Future to get at Russ -- he just likes the guy's music ... and says Wilson understands the guy is too popular to silence him.

Instead, Bennett says Wilson handles the situation like a pro.

The entire interview is pretty solid -- especially the part where Bennett shouts-out the one rapper he would hate for his wife to leave him for.

Tom Brady's Dad Patriots QB 'Wouldn't Tell Us' If He Suffered Concussions

6/13/2017 6:32 AM PDT
Breaking News

Tom Brady's parents were in the dark about the QB's concussion situation last year -- but his father says the Patriots star wouldn't tell them if he suffered one anyway. 

Tom Brady Sr. spoke with The Boston Globe about the controversy surrounding TB12's brain -- ever since Gisele went on TV and said he definitely had a concussion last year, despite no injury report from the Pats.

"We didn’t get to any games last year, except the Super Bowl, so I wasn’t aware of his health condition throughout the year. He wouldn’t tell us."

Brady Sr. also said the topic of concussions is "inflammatory" -- adding, "It’s a hot-button issue, so if somebody alludes to something, it’s going to be blown up whether it’s a big deal or not."

"I think every parent that sees their kid playing football knows that these guys are big and fast and things can happen that aren’t always good ... Hopefully, if something does happen, it will be dealt with as intelligently as possible."

EXCLUSIVE

Kansas City Chiefs running back Charcandrick West GOT PIPES!!!!

The 26-year-old hit the recording booth with the people from Singing for Superheroes -- a group that creates original music for children with disabilities. 

Since West suffers from arthritis, he's made that his cause -- and recorded the song "Body of Steel" with 10-year-old Jillian, who is also battling the condition. 

West says he hopes the song will inspire kids with similar medical conditions to keep fighting and not let it get in the way of chasing their dreams. 

Great video. Great cause ... but seriously, if the whole football thing doesn't work out -- SOMEONE SHOULD SIGN THIS GUY TO A RECORD CONTRACT!!!

Breaking News

Here's Tom Brady doing the anti-Dan Marino -- sporting a fist full of Super Bowl rings ... 3 days after he added #5 to his collection.

Why is he still wearing the hardware out in public? Why not? Wouldn't you?

Brady and his wife/concussion whistle-blower Gisele were out celebrating Dia dos Namorados -- the Brazilian equivalent to Valentine's Day on Monday. 

The location of the celebration is unclear -- but you can see Tom rockin' 4 rings as the event band busts out a custom freestyle about Tom and Gisele's healthy eating habits.

For real though ... where's your 5th ring? (Anyone got eyes on Mauricio Ortega?)

Sean Avery '13 Street Fight Video Surfaces ... Fought 2 Guys at Once

6/12/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NHL tough guy Sean Avery didn't just fight on the ice -- he fought in the middle of an NYC street back in 2013 ... and TMZ Sports has found the video.

We know ... it's old. But it's kind of awesome.

We've confirmed the 37-year-old former New York Rangers star -- who once led the NHL in penalty minutes -- got into it with 2 other men on June 19, 2013 after a verbal altercation escalated.

Avery kicks some serious ass before he got cheap-shotted -- and even the sucker punch didn't phase the guy. It's actually really impressive.

In the end, we're told cops were never called to the scene -- and get this, both groups actually hugged it out afterward. Seriously!

We've reached out to Avery who had no comment.

Dean Cain Kaepernick Dissed the Flag ... I'm Still Mad About It

6/12/2017 12:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dean Cain is still upset about Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest -- telling TMZ Sports, "I know a lot of people who fought and died for that flag. I would never disrespect it like that."

We got Superman out in Malibu, and asked the ex-NFL player (it's true, look it up) if he thinks Kaep will ever land a team, given that Seattle -- where some thought he had his best shot -- passed.

That's when Cain opened up ... saying he didn't like the protest one bit -- and it seems pretty obvious it changed his opinion of the QB. 

Of course, this is the very issue some people think is keeping NFL teams from signing Kaep -- fans are still ticked. 

That said, Cain still believes Kaep will get a job in 2017 ... but he might not be on a roster opening day.
