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.
Of the $341,000 the NFLs PAC has contributed to congressional candidates in this election cycle, $340,000 has gone to incumbents. The other $1,000 went to Brian Rooney, an unsuccessful Republican primary candidate in a U.S. congressional district in Michigan, who is the grandson of Pittsburgh Steelers founder Art Rooney.

I wish I could quit watching NFL but I already have.
I am done with the NFL. Forever.
No more football viewing in my home. Idiots.
I’m not exactly sure why the NFL has a PAC - Other than millions in stadium subsidies and tax breaks and TV monopolies and ....
LOL! I told you idiots the NFL, NBA, MBL are 100% for Obama. The NFL also smeared Rush as a racist.
Keep watching bozos.
Who’s in charge of the PAC?
Turn out the lights, the party’s over.
The collective bargaining agreement is up in 2011. DeMaurice Smith, the NFLPA leader, is a big Obama buddy. The NFL knows that they don’t want to cross him, else they’ll be facing a huge strike. Also, Roger goodell is feminizing the NFL- what with the penalties against hard hits, the pink shoes and hats, the phantom “Penalties” against the Dallas Cowboys, and letting the New Orleans Saints win the Super Bowl.
I shouldn’t think this would sit well with a large part of their audience.
One more example how the socialists have indeed infiltrated boards, offices, committees and councils to influence big cash and directing it. The perfect Alinsky.
This rebellion we have initiated had better work, is all I can say.
I have watched my last NFL game ever... no matter what.
The NFL already has the masculine, patriotic support locked up. What they're now looking for is to increase their fanbase among women and gays.

I always thought that Roger Goodell was a conservative, especially since his wife Jane Skinner was a broadcaster on FOX News.
Ok Off it goes. It is a bunch of “Canadians” anyway. ( that is what we say around our Grand kids-— “ Canadians” )
Should be a real test for conservative guys. Drop football or support liberalism. Decisions, decisions.....
