Even with the shorter list, there looks to be more money on Romney's side even if you only count Knight, Pickens, and Jerry Jones.

I'm sure this is true, but where did this info come from?(nevermind read the link)
Also MJD and Matt Forte did an Obama commercial recently, so add them to the list.

ETA: And who is Les Miles supporting?

The same way Tim Brando can publicly back Romney. They are sportscasters, not news people.

They are allegedly journalists -- Brando's radio show is a different case, but he works for CBS as an allegedly unbiased observer. This could be significant if presidents/other candidates were involved in major sports issues like antitrust exemptions.

Well, maybe we should run sporting events like the dems would and just redistribute the points at the end of the game. Teams that win a lot obviously have some sort of "unfair" advantage.

Don't think so? Then why in the frick are people who win anywhere else automatically assumed to have unfair advantages?
