Default The NFL Has Not Paid Any Taxes Since 1966

Should the NFL Lose Its Tax-Exempt Status?

Times are good for the National Football League. Viewership is up. For the 47th year in a row, Harris Interactive named pro football the most popular sport in America. And with overall revenues north of $9 billion, the NFL is the most lucrative sports league on the planet...

So, if I start a church that worships Roger Goodell, can I get tax-exempt status?

It's a shell game though, isn't it? The NFL pushes all profits out to owners and calls their central organization a non-profit?
