wow this kind of blew me away so the NFL is a non profit??!!?!?? but the teams them selves are not......how did they get this status and why?
The National Football League is an unincorporated nonprofit 501(c)(6) association, meaning its league office is not subject to income tax because it does not make a profit. In contrast, each individual team makes a is subject to tax because they make a profit. The NFL considers itself a trade association made up of and financed by its 32 member teams
There is yet another conspiracy going on right under the sheeps nose. I'm talking about the professional sports conspiracy. Let me be blunt: Every professional sports team is rigged and controlled to determine a set outcome. Professional sports and wraslin have EVERYTHING in common. NFL, NASCAR, NHL, NBA, etc... are ALL RIGGED.
And every person that watches professional sports is a god forsaken SHEEP of the 34 th degree. What's even scarier is how the sheeple get EMOTIONAL over these BALL-GAMES. They know all the stats of their teams dating back to the 2800's... they dress up in their team colors... they argue about who is the best... and they watch these games OBSESSIVELY on the one-eyes jew.
But that's not the worst part. The most sickening example of the weakness of the feeble mind of the sheep is simply how they bee-lie-ve professional sports are REAL.
They actually believe these ball games are REAL! So you think it is a coincidence that the SAME few teams (NY, NEW ENGLAND etc...) always WIN year after year? But the sheep exclaim 'they have the best players'. Right? Wrong. They have the best money. And money will naturally determine who will perform best. To deny this would be to deny the great power of the benevolency.
The sad illusion among the sheeple is that life is 'FAIR'. In other words, The sad hope hope that a weak team can defeat a strong team. This is exactly what keeps the masses glued to the TV during every ball game. The viewer fan waiting for his 'fair share' of the pie to finally come his way. So how do you explain 'rich teams' that get all the money and thus the best players?
While many believe that some teams just happen to have more money that others, the fact is that EVERY team budget is controlled at the top by one omnipotent and unseen force. But the point remains that there always must be a handful of 'boggie man bad-guy' teams that the sheep fans of other teams will then hope to be defeated.

I care so much because billions of dollars are wasted on them. They do not deserve to be a non-profit. They make huge profits and pay no tax. The players pay tax, the league does not. They just keep raising the price of a ticket to the point that families can not afford to go to a game. It used to be an American passtime. Now it is simply a money grabbing scheme that gives nearly nothing back to the community. Non-profit my ass!.
