ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - I don't know anyone who enjoys mailing their taxes but when I read about this latest news, you will really be upset.

Did you know the National Football League is tax exempt.  Not the individual teams, but the league.

That's right, the league pays no federal taxes because it's classified as a not for profit.

Remember our least favorite commissioner Paul Tagliabue?  He was paid $8.5 million dollars by this league that claims to be not for profit.

I'm not the kind of guy who likes to run around saying hey you need to pay more.

But if I have to make a trip to the mailbox, the NFL should too.  

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
