Owner Woody Johnson Chooses Romney Over a Jets Winning Season

Jets owner Woody Johnson said today on Bloomberg News, if asked to choose, that Mitt Romney winning the presidential election in November is a bigger priority than his NFL team having a winning season.

Johnson apologized to Jets fans for Sunday’s 34-0 loss to the 49ers, saying fans deserved better in deeming the Jets’ play “unacceptable.”

Johnson said, “I think you always have to put country first,” when asked what is more important to him. Johnson has publicly backed the Republican presidential candidate, and says in the interview that it’s “very, very important” for Americans and “our kids and grandkids” to have Romney win the election.”

    You know, I’ve suffered through being a Jets fan my whole life, every time I think the team is almost there, they fall short. The Mud bowl in the early eighties, 1986-87 Clevland game, AFC championship against DEN, then losing Vinny in the first game the next year, 2 straight trips to AFC championship game, and then collapse. I can take all that, but, then to have the idiot owner spout off about his political beliefs is too much. That and reports that he will force Ryan to play Tebow is enough to push me to the Giants. I miss Leon Hess.
