    I'd like to see it broken down by team, by contributor.

    Seems like having us as the number one Republican donator skews the stats with our owner being the right winger.

    Is it the owner who throws his money to political causes? Is it the front office? Is it the coaching staff?

    I'd be embarrassed if the players (who are predominantly black and should know better) were throwing money at old, white Republicans.

    In any case, I like football and I like politics.

    Get your politics out of my football.

    Seriously? Kiss my ass.

    The fact that you have an FFB quote in your sig says more than I care to know.

    If there is a black person alive that honestly believes the Republican party has the best interest of black people at heart, then they should turn in their black person membership card immediately.

    You got a problem with what I said? Explain your position so we can discuss it like adults.

    Otherwise (and to reiterate), kiss my ass.

    Maybe this is what Bob looks for when he says he wants to bring in good guys? Not surprised to see the Bengals more to the left.

    My friend worked for fairtax, what? she had nice boobs! anyways, her team was always responsible for sending thank you baskets to their donors, Bob mcnair was one of them. So it doesn't surprise me. Not to go hank williams on yawl, but Comrade Stalin, Comrade fdr and comrade churchill all sat down for tea at one point. Point being, as long as the good guys win, I don't really care where the owners money is going. Mcnair would donate even if he didn't own the team.

    Or the NFL should just mandate that owners cannot contribute money to politics just like athletes cannot gamble. That would be a fun challenge for commissar goodell.

    I'm going to go back to sleep now.

    Um, considering Bob McNair has the Bush family in his suite at every game, is anyone surprised?

    I am a lefty-left-liberal that said I do live in Texas and most of my friends (and if facebook is to be believed about 90 percent of the people I went to school with) are Republicans. It's just a fact of life down here.

    The only way I care about Bob McNair's politics is if he falls in love with say a squeaky clean, wholesome, family-man church-going face of the franchise type who isn't getting it done between the lines, in other words if it is affecting football decisions.

    Besides I can always pretend that when I buy a ticket my money is going to pay part of #80's salary.

    Well.
    I hate McNair anyway.
    As long as the Texans win he can go worship the devil for all I care.

    Not all republicans are about Gods Guns and Gays. Most of us just want money spent responsibly and for people to earn what they make and not socialism. That what the core of it is, but it's been bastardized into an SNL skit.

    I obviously don't care either way what he does with his personal fortune, I just want him to put a great product on the field, which he hasn't done and that bothers me, not his right wing ways (which i'm not crazy about but i've learned to tolerate evangelicals)

    A free agent kicker makes $400,000. They are not the 99%.

    I think the owners are mostly conservative, and some of the coaches and the few white players who would willingly follow politics or just want to network. This might be the one group of people with too contradictory a life to be biased one way or another. Rich, hypercompetitive red-blooded Americans who are all union guys, hang out with blacks and have probably needed an abortion or two.

    Uncle Ruckus must spread some reputation around before giving it to CaseyH again.
