Socialist football league

Former Virginia senator George Allen and son of the Washington redskins coach of the same name at a McCain rally today said --

Under the Barack Obama approach, they would take wins from the Washington Redskins and give them to the Detroit Lions.

Does George Allen know that the league already spreads the wealth, if you will, and takes money from the big market teams and gives it to the small ones? And weights the schedule and talent infusion in favour of the poorly performing teams? Americans like socialism in sports. So it does not make for a very good analogy. Then again, George Allen was not a very good senator.
