I've brought this up before but now I want some thoughts on why the tax payer ends up footing the bill for most of the security? Shouldn't the Gov. be able to charge the NFL?

With all the security people should boycott the game, that would be a nice message to send, IMO. Soon a mag to go shopping at the supermarket. When will it be enough.... :mad:

I'm all for Grumpy's boycott idea! Too bad that Americans will willingly submit to anything at just about any cost when entertaining self gratification is being offered on such a grand scale.

Just getting tens of thousands and more watching to be used to the increased intrusion and pat downs and seeing armed men around. It will become the norm after a short while.

The way the NFL is structured they net $0, there is nothing to tax. The revenue is divided by the owners who pay taxes on it.

The way to look at is the owners are exclusive stockholders in the organization. All profit is given to them, they are not tax exempt.

If that were true then there would be no need for a tax exempt status & think of all the lobbying & political donations they would no longer have to shell out.

Easy solution: Pass a law banning any public funds be used for new stadiums or renovations to existing ones.

That'd solve it.
