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

You got to be kidding that they are tax exempt !!! WTFIT !!! Heck , we should all be tax exempt ,seeing how these groups,etc. as the big wigs seem to get their way at ripping off the People of this country. I can understand a truly non-profit and the like need a break of sorts due to situation as long it is backed up and reproof it regularly ; but come on "The NFL" w/ their revenue and gains . Unfortunately they are only part/group of these FREELOADERS that are more than just greedy , but I really don't need to start the white collar that is allowed to go on as if they are struggling to be Profitable !

While I don't believe Congress should inject itself in matters of sport (because it has more important matters to deal with), They should look into revoking tax exempt status of not only sports leagues but the businesses of churches and other corporate entities.
