The National Football Leagues political action committeeGridiron PAChas weighed in on the hotly contested U.S. Senate election in Nevada that pits conservative Republican challenger Sharron Angle against Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid.
The PAC has given $10,000 to Reidthe maximum it can give in a single election cycleand no money to Angle, according to Federal Election Commission data compiled by OpenSecrets.org.
The NFLs PAC also contributed to other incumbent Democratic senators facing viable challengers this year, giving $5,000 to Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas; $5,000 to Russ Feingold of Wisconsin; $5,000 to Barbara Boxer of California; $5,000 to Michael Bennet of Colorado; and $5,000 to Patty Murray of Washington.
In none of these races did the NFLs PAC contribute to the Republican challenger.

I like college football . . . and will watch very little NFL for as long as they support socialism.
Does the NBA have a PAC too? It like football is filled with Obama voters.
I doubt the National Hockey League votes Obama.
What? Do they think democrats are more likely to hand out tax payer financed stadiums then republicans?
I assume their “unionization” has gone Democratic.
If the players strike next season don't let the locker door hit you all in the *ss.
Glad I’m not a football fan.
My prayer is that they have just thrown good money after bad.
May Harry Reid be defeated soundly in the election.
Wasn’t it not too long ago when the idiots who owned the Steelers endorsed and donated a substantial sum to a dummycrat . . . Would be nice if the NFL would just worry about football.
Same goes for most other pro sports.

Dan Rooney turned the Steeler organization into an adjunct arm of the Obama Campaign in return for an ambassadorship in Ireland. It was truly disgusting.
Glad Im not a football fan.
I really like hockey.
At least the NHL appears to spend all of their time
gumming-up the Canadian government.
The NFL would be wise to take a survey on the demographics of their PAYING fans...’nuff said.
WOW? My ignorance embarrasses me. Is that spelled correctly?
Good luck making truck loads of money under communism.
No wonder they nixed El Rushbo.
I’m with ya bro, gave up on ALL PRO SPORTS over 20 years ago when they gave up on Decency and Morality.
Ennis Miller was a color man for the NFL but I guess he became too conservative so was given the heave ho.
Commies prefer soccer (they call it footie).
Whoops. I typed Dennis not Ennis. sorry
Too many shots to the head.
