Sports Bolitics: NY Jets Owner Woody Johnson Says Romney Winning The Election Is More Important Than The Jets’ Success!

No wonder the Jets ain’t isht… SMH.

Via NYPost:

Jets owner Woody Johnson was asked if it was more important for him that his team have a winning season or Romney wins next month’s presidential election.

“I think you always have to put country first,” said Johnson, who is the chairman of Romney’s campaign in New York, on Bloomberg TV’s “Money Matters.”

“I think it’s very, very important not only for us, but for our kids and grandkids that this election come off with Mitt Romney and Ryan as president and vice president.”

Johnson vented his frustration with the Jets’ 34-0 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

“The coaches and I were not happy with what happened yesterday, and the players aren’t either,” Johnson said. “So our job now . . . we are still leading in the AFC East , but that performance was absolutely unacceptable.”

Like his coach Rex Ryan, Johnson had to fend off questions about Tim Tebow replacing Sanchez as the team’s starting quarterback.

“There’s going to be more pressure, but this quarterback can get the job done,” Johnson said. “He really can. He had a bad day, the whole team had a bad day. Receivers have to be in the right spot. A few plays here and there, which is the norm of football today that went against us . .. and it could have been a different game.”

The question about the 2-2 Jets’ starting quarterback situation have grown as Sanchez has struggled the past three weeks after a stellar season opener against the Bills.

“It doesn’t mean Tim Tebow is going to be starting next week, but it’s a question that’s going to be asked more frequently if this progresses because it’s unacceptable,” Johnson said. “We failed in all three areas — offense, defense, special teams — and we let our fans down.”

Sounds like this guy is oblivious to the fact that BOTH his teams are losers.
