NFL teams lean Red very Red

We always knew of all the sports that football is the best sport. There is a new study out that ranked the teams by the volume of campaign money given by players, owners, executives and their spouses. The NFL leans right and when we say lean we do not mean a little bit. The top five teams four tilt toward the GOP in a big way. The number one team is the Houston Texans; the number is $293,100 since January of 2009. When you look inside $287,300, or 98 percent, went to Republicans. Team owner and energy executive Robert McNair has given $215,200 of his estimated $1.4 billion net worth to political causes since January 2009, almost entirely to Republicans. Number two is the San Diego Chargers, giving $171,523, with 79 percent of that going to Republicans. The big picture shows that NFL teams gave 67 percent of their money to Republicans and just 29 percent to Democrats in the years that President Obama has been in office. All together, they have given more than $1.4 million to political candidates in that time. This is great news the list of the top five GOP backers are Texans, Chargers, Jets, Cardinals, Steelers. The top five Democrat backers are Dolphins, Bengals, Falcons, Eagles, and Seahawks. Do not let this effect your fantasy football or betting for the weekend.
