The NFL a very Profitable Non-Profit

While it may be considered ‘piling on’ to kick the NFL while it’s down, citizens should realize that the NFL is a tax-exempt non-profit.  This isn’t true for the individual franchises, but it is for the League itself as it is listed as a trade organization.

It’s questionable whether this could ever be changed when the NFL, and other pro-sports leagues in the same boat, wield considerable power in Washington, but at minimum people should know who is getting cut a break on taxes.
