This is an article about the NFL's tax status with some humor thrown in. Enjoy. I've tried to make it readable. Here's the mandatory roadmap: Part I of this article discusses the NFL’s current tax status. Part II attempts to put the NFL’s tax and antitrust exemption in proper context. Part III analyzes the NFL business model from a critical perspective, asking whether the NFL’s nonprofit staus is deserved. More importantly, Part III begins with a great Dave Barry quote. This piece concludes, more or less, that the NFL should stop blowing smoke up a certain orifice of the American taxpayer and start paying its taxes.
