Comments from Spikes' agent appear to confirm that the linebacker is the man on the tape.
But strangers soon began to pop up on his acquaintances' screens, strangers from as far away as the United States and Korea, from Cape Town or Berlin. Representatives of Skype, Google and Google's Russian competitor Yandex are courting Ternovskiy, as is Moscow Web magnate Yuri Milner.
