Delaney: The NFL and its Undeserved Tax-Exempt Status

In an apparently somewhat light-hearted consideration of the issue, Andrew Delaney, Technology Editor at the Vermont Law Review, has posted Taking a Sack: The NFL and its Undeserved Tax-Exempt Status.  Here is the abstract:

This is an article about the NFL's tax status with some humor thrown in. Enjoy. I've tried to make it readable. Here's the mandatory roadmap: Part I of this article discusses the NFL’s current tax status. Part II attempts to put the NFL’s tax and antitrust exemption in proper context. Part III analyzes the NFL business model from a critical perspective, asking whether the NFL’s nonprofit status is deserved. More importantly, Part III begins with a great Dave Barry quote. This piece concludes, more or less, that the NFL should stop blowing smoke up a certain orifice of the American taxpayer and start paying its taxes.

Oh, it's decidedly light-hearted. No "apparently somewhat" about it.
