The insanity of what we allow for the obscenely wealthy NFL owners
The NFL, as I pointed out here earlier, is, first of all, a monopoly, each and every team. Second, each team and each owner has TOTAL TAX-FREE STATUS (did you know that?) and third, finally, insanely, we also allow them, these teams, to have "blackout Sundays" so people can't watch their games if they haven't already, additionally paid to see the games.
Why do we do this? Why do we allow this insanity to go on?
They make huge, obscene profits. When they want their stadiums updated, they go to the local people and their governments, with their hat and hand out, as though they're poor, as we here in Kansas City found out not that many years ago.
This is crazy.
It's grossly unfair.
What's more, it's immoral. Truly immoral.
