    NFL is structured as a "Non-Profit" organization to avoid taxes

    Here's a paragraph from the article and a link to read the rest:

    http://deadspin.com/5984731/the-only-reason-we-know-roger-goodells-absurd-salary-is-that-the-nfl-is-structured-as-a-non+profit-to-avoid-taxes

     

    Goodell's salary wouldn't be public knowledge were it not for a tricky bit of tax code that allows the league, which ranks behind only a select few tech, finance, oil and motor companies among the most profitable businesses in the world, to file taxes as a nonprofit organization, like Oxfam or Teach for America.

    heres another absurd example; Despite earning over $1B in profits last year, Facebook paid $0 in federal and state taxes, and will get a refund totaling $429M, thanks to tax breaks.

    The NFL is set up so the teams make money the league doesn't. The teams and the owners have the product, the league just organize them together.

    you people need to take your politics to the correct forum. america is #1, move to another country if you don't like our democracy! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!  football and beer baby! get er done! 

    if you people weren't lazy then you would be able to make billions and afford to pay off congress too! get a job! work harder! 




    Well we have a republic, which you seem to hate everything about. I would really hate to be as small minded as you to always blame hardship on someone else.

    that's right! everything is just the way jesus intended it to be so stop asking questions! god created the NFL and it is perfect! teams and owners make the money that's why roger goodell doesn't make nearly $30 million per year! 

    USA! USA! USA! we'er #1! praise baby jesus!



    The teams are worth billions of dollars. Goodell is a paid employee of every owner. This is not that hard to understand. The teams pay taxes. The NFL is like any other trade group like the RIAA and MPAA. Instead listening to Bulls on Parade on repeat read something and try to make yourself a better person.

    Yep, this league business is a little different and doesn't show a profit because it takes in zero money.  The teams handle all cash.

    Solution:

    Term limits

    Campaign finance reform

    Outlaw electronic voting

    Jail the banksters who steal and attempt to bribe our politicians

    Think it can't happen, it already has, look to Iceland, they jailed the scumbags who purposely crashed the economy and no longer allow a central banking system run by the Rothschilds.

    Easy...

    you're making the NFL sound like a socialist entity and i don't appreciate that! this is 'merica! we don't do socialism round here! go to a different country if you can't respect our capitalistic democracy!

    You know what I like about you? You are proud of your ignorance. You realize you are no better, maybe a little worse than the people you are making of fun right?

    The only problem about CFR, is what happened in CT. Chris Shays was one of the best Congressman while in Congress. He could have beaten Murphy but McMahon was self funded and blew him out of the primary.

    Gets a bit tiresome over time, doesn't it, reading the same mantra post after post?

    Kind of ironic that you "praise baby Jesus" yet your avatar says free Palestine? Maybe you need to educate yourself more, before you continue to make a fool of yourself. TROLL.
