    So get local taxpayers to pay for the stadiums that allow owners to rake in millions in profits and over-pay athlete entertainers, while paying nothing in taxes on those massive profits?

    This has been discussed before, and while technically it's true, it's misleading to a large extent.

    The NFL as an organization is tax-exempt, but that doesn't mean the individual franchises are - they're not. And virtually all of what would be profit is either generated at or funneled down to the individual franchise level.
