The Non-Profit Football League

While reading some other postings on Daily Kos today I ran across a posting on the NFL.  This isn't an organization I've thought much about but the NFL is a non-profit organization.  This just seems unbelievable to me.

Read more about this in "How the NFL Fleeces Taxpayers," by Gregg Easterbrook (8/13/2013) on The Atlantic's site.

Apparently I'm not the only one, as noted in "Senator, activists attack NFL's tax exemption," by Fredreka Schouten in USAToday (12/18/2013):

 Liberal activists and Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn, one of the most conservative Republicans in Congress, have found a common cause: Trying to strip the National Football League and several other professional sports organizations of their exemptions from paying federal taxes.
