"silly"The National Football League is one of the most profitable enterprises in the world. However, it is regularly subsidized by state and local governments to build and upgrade facilities, its lucrative TV deals are exempt from antitrust laws, and, worst of all, the NFL enjoys nonprofit status.
You read that right: The NFL enjoys nonprofit status.
At a time when austerity measures have forced across-the-board cuts that have slowed our economy, cost us jobs, and threaten even deeper cuts to come, it’s time to stop the public giveaways to the world’s most profitable sports association.
You do realize that all of those stadiums built with public funding
that the funds were okayed by the voters/taxpayers? How many jobs were created? The workers who built the stadiums. The jobs for suppliers of parts and equipment that were used in the construction. These were not minimum wage jobs.
The fact remains, voters/taxpayers decided by a majority that public funding was okay.
