The NFL is preventing the steelers from paying their fair share in taxes by withholding their bonuses. The greedy business owners are depriving school kids in PA from proper text books and a good quality education. Many in the Public Unions are upset that their benefits which are much greater than in the private sector might be cut. Or god forbid, they may have to retire at age 60 instead of 55.

Maurkice Pouncy is due 5 million on friday. That's at least 2 million in tax that is being witheld from the government and the public unions and ultimately the democratic party. .
Harrision is due $900,000 dollars on Friday. That's another $400K.

Should the NFL players rally in NY? Where is Trumpka?

enjoy the offseason.

$900,000 and you pay $400,000 in taxes, how pathetic. its just insane to me that you pay 40% taxes. so in actuality, Harrison is only getting $500,000

Thanks again for making sure to keep your political observations in the Locker Room:chuckle:

If any industry should be particularly outraged its hard earned dollars are paying taxes to subsidize greedy teachers it is that champion of laissez faire capitalism the National Football League - thank goodness we do not waste any tax dollars to help subsidize billionaire sports team owners or anywhere else other than in the school system

REPRESENTATIVE NFL STADIUM PUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS

PITTSBURGH • $234 million estimated cost for stadium project; this includes stadium construction and infrastructure improvements •

Public contribution -- $138 million - $63 million in Regional Asset District bonds - $75 million from the State •

Private contribution -- $96 million - $42 million from the sale of PSLs - $17 million from visiting team share of club seat premiums; paid over 15 years - $14 million from ticket surcharges - $9 million in cash - $14 million for estimated cost overruns from team debt • Cost overruns - Team responsible for cost overruns related to stadium design and construction • 30-year lease •

Referendum did not pass in November 1997; State legislation developed alternative funding through Plan B (that was democarcy in action there)

Yes, crony capitalism. and what is more despicable is that Steelers can sell tickets for hundreds of dollars and limit the number of seats in the stadium to ensure that there is never a blackout and the games are televised.

$900,000 and you pay $400,000 in taxes, how pathetic. its just insane to me that you pay 40% taxes. so in actuality, Harrison is only getting $500,000

But Harrison gets a 3 million dollar roster bonus. Thats 3 million just for showing up. Thats what he gets the next 3 years. Past 3 years his roster bonus was around 700k plus his 700-800k base Salary which also jumps to a couple Mil next 3 seasons.
