The New York Jets are all sorts of awful this year, and yet team owner Woody Johnson doesn’t seem to care very much. Sure, he went out and signed Tim Tebow to steal some headlines from the New York Giants over the summer, but, aside from that, what exactly has he done for his franchise?
Mind you, this team is 26th in the NFL in passing yardage, 24th in rushing yardage, and 28th in receiving yardage. And it’s not like those rankings are a surprise. Everyone noted how few weapons they had offensively coming into the season; yet, for whatever reason, the guy who is responsible for making sure this ship runs right paid the situation no mind.
Well, thanks to an interview he gave to Bloomberg, we may now have an idea as to why Johnson doesn't seem to care all that much about his club's woes.
He is busy supporting Mitt Romney’s campaign.
While on Market Makers today, Johnson responded like this when asked whether he would rather see the Jets have a winning season or see Mitt Romney get elected President of the United States:
"Well, I think you always have to put country first," he replied (via Yahoo! Sports). "So I think it's very, very important that not only for us but particularly for our kids and grandkids that this election come off with Mitt Romney and (Paul) Ryan as President and Vice-President."
Exactly. Who has time for the Jets? Johnson is too busy looking out for all of our grandkids to waste time on building up his stupid football team.
It all makes sense now.
