Woody Johnson is a Republican
Doesn't Mr. Johnson consider that some if not many of NY Jet fans, the people who spend their hard earned money to support his franchise, might not agree with and/or vehemently disagree with his political views? Wouldn't you think a considerate owner of a sports franchise would think that it might not be appropriate to publically express political views knowing he might be upsetting/alienating some fans.
Yes I am a democrat.
Yes I am a Jet fan.
Yes I am offended he makes his political views public.
Yes I am sure other owners do the same.
But most importantly yes I do feel strongly that a sports franchise owner when purchasing said franchise should have the decency and class to decide that his own private views (whether religious, political or otherwise dividing) should remain private out of the respect of the views of the fans of his/her franchise.
Maybe I'm alone in this but I'm really turned off by this franchise. Highest ticket prices in NFL, desperate attempts to sell tickets not based on performance (see Tebow), no super bowl appearances in my lifetime while the NYG win 4. And now this.
I vote for separation of NFL, church and state.
