Just in time for Halloween, we receive word that 275,000 people are dressing up as Robin Hood. Actually, scratch that. We have 275,000 people who think they are Robin Hood and intend to live this way in real life.
It seems this group of "merry men" is really upset with the NFL and its league office being categorized as a nonprofit trade association; so they have chosen to sign a petition asking Congress to remove the nonprofit status. Sure, like corporations and individuals aren't taxed enough. Keep taking from those who contribute to society and further inflate the tax rolls for inept politicians. This is a great idea!
Scratch that one too. It's an awful idea. The NFL is taxed enough, and the fact that its league office is exempt from paying tax on approximately $250 million per year helps create additional opportunities in the form of employment and community economics. Force the league to pay an additional tax will result in a giant negative for fans, which trickles down to fiscal problems for cities hosting NFL teams.
