The New York Jets are struggling to find their way on the football field so far this season, but owner Woody Johnson would rather see Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney win this season than his own team. Johnson appeared this morning on Bloomberg Television and one host asked him which was a bigger priority this season, a winning season for the Jets or Mitt Romney winning the election.
Johnson responded, “Well, I think you always have to put country first. So, I think it’s very, very important for not only us but it’s very important for our kids and grand kids this this election comes off with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as President and Vice President.”
This news might be good for Jets head coach Rex Ryan as the team’s owner is preoccupied with the election currently. However, the election is going to be held in the first Tuesday in November and the regular NFL season continues on for several more weeks. At some point, Mr. Johnson is going to be paying attention to what is happening with the Jets and if their offense doesn’t find a way to start moving the ball soon, Rex Ryan could be without a job at the end of the season.
