Not only should the NFL start paying proper taxes, it should pay back taxes on all that it owes from the beginning! Wonder how many Social Security checks that will fund.

Noted and signed--we all need to thank our government for allowing this crap to happen. They are ruining this country at the expense of 'we the people'. Their new motto should be 'If I only had a brain!'

Do I dare say I want the NFL to succeed and I don't really know their financial status except the players do risk a lot of injury but are they really worth so many millions of dollars to play. I'm thinking also if the middle east had some diversion like this one...maybe they wouldn't be focused on terrorizing the world.

I'm sorry, but the NFL ought to be able to compete on the same level as MLB,, the NBA, etc.
this setup is not based on football worship, but on sly political maneuvering, and it stinks!

As much as I love NFL football, this really rankles me. I have signed so many of these petitions that I keep hoping that maybe someday soon something will be done!

This really rankles with me too, as I feel there are too many footballers way overpaid.

Why or HOW have their avoided paying tax?

I love American football. But when I heard that the league doesn't have to pay income taxes, AT ALL, I was flabbergasted! The over-priced seats are disgusting! Thousands of dollars just for a seat? C'mon! That's just highway robbery! And they are not paying taxes? Millions of dollars for stadiums? C'mon!! And the millions and millions of dollars that They pay for advertising? Absolutely, C'mon!!!
I want them to pay the taxes that they have NOT PAYED in the last 50+ years!!!
The money that is wasted on this "pasttime" would balance the budget! And the DEFICIT would be GONE!!!

Boycotted the NFL ages ago. Too much violence, both for players and their significant others. Too much corruption. They should take all those taxes they haven't paid and give it to the poor. Would help a lot of homeless or almost-homeles and hungry people.
