Strip The NFL Of Its Tax Exemption!

Strip The NFL Of Its Tax Exemption!

Dear Friend,

If you've had enough of the NFL coddling and protecting players who abuse women and their own children, please join our effort to support the bill introduced by New Jersey Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) to strip the NFL of its tax exemption.

While individual teams pay business income taxes, the NFL does not.  The head of the National Football League, Roger Gooddell, made a whopping $44 million for the 2012 season and $105 million over the course of five years.

The premise of the tax exemption is that the NFL is not a business, but a fraternal association.  That is totally absurd!

Passing the Booker Bill would generate $100 million in revenue which would be earmarked for the victims of domestic abuse.

Send a message to the NFL!  Please sign this petition and demand that Congress revoke the National Football League's tax-exempt status.

Your signature will count!  We will send an email in your name to your Senators and Congressman telling him or her of your position!

Please get your friends and family to sign this petition too.

We'll add your email address to our Alerts list to keep you posted on progress and let you know if we need to take further action.

Thanks,

Dick Morris

NFL is definitely an enabler of this shit, however the teams in the league always "hide" behind the NFL instead of being way out in front and dealing with the issues, regardless of the costs..In any case, the NFL is such a parity product, it is tough to like, respect, or even watch...

As they remove millions from the people, their income should be subject to the same taxes as the common man. They do act like a fraternal organization, a collegiate frat' house!

I am sick of sports franchises / leagues siphoning funds from the taxpayer, extorting cable companies to carry ESPN etc. at a hugh cost to subscribers. Let the NFL count as a business just like any other business.

It's bad enough that taxpayers are on the hook to build stadiums for multi millionaires without this.

ALL entertainment type businesses should pay MORE taxes, why should they be exempt when they are filthy rich? Doesn't make sense!
