    But, that's a choice to be made by the membership (ie. the 32 owners). If they want to pay their commissioner $30mil a year, that's their prerogative. Doesn't change the fact that the NFL (as an umbrella) is nonprofit.

    What taxes do churches not pay that you want them to? How are they different from any other non-profit organization?

    Have you ever read the US Constitution, Amendment 1?
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    Form 990 requires you to disclose the process for determining the compensation of the the organization's CEO, Executive Director or top management official. Also all other officers and key employees of the organization. It is not disclosed in the copies of the NFL's 990s that I can access on GuideStar.

    Do people know that Paul Tagliabue still draws a $1mil/year salary as well as another $7.5mil/year in retirement and other deferred compensation from the NFL?
