Finally read your link. I thought it was some sort of report with actual financials. You are basing your entire argument on one reporters allegations of what the dues are used for and how they are treated on the returns of owners and the nfl? Pretty flimsy, man. You have any real evidence?
No. I can only go on the reports of the columnist.
I welcome any explanation, any real evidence you have in their financials--perhaps an audit--that the reporter is wrong.
Should we not be suspect of an organization whose members routinely seek corporate welfare from cities across the country? who sought this special non profit status that required an act of Congress?
It is easy to see the tax advantages of the non profit for the owners why would anyone think they not taking using those advantages??
There are several articles using the $620 million loan to owners number.
It is amazing you people are not suspect of this special treatment. If this were available to every body I could set up "IBFreeman tax free association" make tax deductible contributions to it and pay no taxes while allowing the association to make interest free loans to me for my house ect.
