    You fail to understand the situation. All of those billions are taxed, they are the profits of TEAMS. The only money in question is the 200m in dues paid by the teams to run the NFL administration.

    I can't believe someone still doesn't understand this.

    You are being sucked into sensationalist BS. All 9b of NFL TEAM profit is taxed. The teams each pay 6m per year to the NFL Organization. The NFL org takes care of the administration of the NFL. It is a non-profit business organization serving as the admin for teams and players. The NFL org does not make ANY profit and works on revenues from dues only.

    Yes it does make money. It sells its status to teams. I am not falling for sensationalist anything. I am just not buying that the NFL makes no profit.

    It provides administrative services for profit to the teams. revenues from dues is just BS talk for tax free profit. I am not going to be fooled, sorry.

    It does not sell status. It makes no profit whatsoever. It exists entirely on the dues of members. It does the admin work for the team and players unions.

    The NFL organization. The teams are taxed, on all of that 9b!

    So, you're freaked out about 200m in dues paid to a non-profit... and you don't know a single other c6 non-profit or what any of their budgets look like.

    So what do the teams pay them in donuts?

    Receiving money to do work is profit, at least its called that when other companies do it.


    The NFL organization. The teams are taxed, on all of that 9b!
    The money that the NFL makes is not taxed. The money I earned to buy a car was taxed and then I paired sales tax on the car, that money was taxed twice?

    What makes the NFL so special?

    So, you're freaked out about 200m in dues paid to a non-profit... and you don't know a single other c6 non-profit or what any of their budgets look like.
    I have to pay taxes. Why don't they?

    All of the dues are used for admin services. No profit is made. It's not a company, it pays no dividends and has no stock. It is a non-profit org that exists on dues.

    This is getting idiotic. You seem unable to understand that the NFL organization makes no profits. The teams make profits (9b) and pay taxes on it.
