NY Jets Owner: 'I'd Rather Romney Win Than The Jets'


Just one more reason why the Jets suck this year. Not exactly the thing you want to say to your fans after a 34-0 shellacking at home either. Johnson, who serves as Romney's campaign chairman in New York, is already hearing about this in the New York media.

Woody Johnson says if he was forced to choose, the Jets would be his No. 2 priority. The Jets owner appeared on Bloomberg TV Monday and was asked: which would he prefer, a winning season for the Jets or a victorious election for Mitt Romney?

"Well I think you always have to put country first," Johnson said. "So I think it's very, very important that for — not only us — but in particular for our kids and grandkids that this election come off with Mitt Romney and Ryan as president and vice president."
