The NFL earns virtually nothing. It is an association of which its members earn billions which are taxed.

Not ONE professional sports association should be tax exempt.
As a matter of fact, if they got rid of ALL tax exempt organizations, along with the income tax,
corporate tax, social security tax, tax on tax, and went with a flat/fair tax, just think of all the
money flowing INTO this country from outside, in the form of tax shelters.  Just think of all of
the off shore accounts that would close up.  Just think of all the money that could be used in the
USA, instead of sitting in an island bank somewhere.
Oh, but a flat/fair tax would hit those at the lower end of the economic ladder the hardest.
Yeah, you keep believing that one...

The NFL itself is technically a non-profit organization.  The teams in the NFL are not.  The teams are where the big money is.  So this isn't anywhere near as bad as it might look at first glance.

If they don't earn anything, why would they worry about being taxed on it?
