Off the Market co-founder Tia Robbins and hubby Fred.

A group of NFL Wives have joined forces to host couples only parties aptly titled Off the Market. The parties are open to athletes and their wives only. Co-founded by Tia Robbins, wife of New York Giant’s defensive tackle Fred Robbins, the parties are an attempt to deter cheating and let the jump-offs know their men are taken. Will it work? Only time will tell! But it’s an innovative concept nonetheless.
