The Mark Sanchez bare-butt video? The Jets have no comment, a spokesperson said Wednesday. The team is declining to talk about the YouTube video that shows their quarterback dancing in a kitchen with his pants down.

The original video has been removed from YouTube due to a copyright claim, according to a notice on the site. The California law firm referenced in the claim, Lavely & Singer, declined to publicly comment on the matter.

One former teammate did talk about Sanchez and his embarrassing week: Erik Ainge, the former Jets quarterback whose brief NFL career was short-circuited by drug addiction.

In a Metro New York report from Kristian Dyer, Ainge reveals that Sanchez was not smart when he went to parties, and once went streaking while a femaly party guest recorded the whole thing on her cellphone. Ainge said he smashed the phone to destroy the video, and Sanchez reimbursed the woman for her phone.

"Now it's become a thing to try and catch Mark doing something stupid," Ainge told Metro NY.

In another week, of course, Sanchez might be subject to more outrage over his NSFW production. But his indiscretion looks merely foolish in light of the murder charge levied against former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.
