It is some trick the NFL has pulled, obtaining nonprofit status from the government, despite seeing revenues in the billions. According to attorney David Goodfriend, who is also chairman of the Sports Fans Coalition, the secret is in the language of laws and the benefits of having good lobbyists. Goodfriend says, “Don’t stop at the tax code. Take a look, for example, at anti-trust laws in the United States. There’s an explicit exemption for professional sports leagues. They can negotiate a contract with broadcasters while colluding. They get together and say, ‘Let’s all present ourselves as one.’ That’s illegal, usually, unless you get a special exemption in the law.”
