They went full Dixie Chicks yesterday. Unreal. They can sell season tickets to black crack dealers now and see if they want them, lol.

Black people fuck everything up. It really is true. Crazy.

The Dixie Bitches just criticized Bush and as it turns out, rightfully so., or did they do something else I'm not aware of?

Whether you agree with the Dixie Chicks or not is irrelevant, the analogy stands. The NFL shit all over its own customer base in order to appease the talent and the leftwing media. They seem to have forgotten that the money actually comes from the customers. And yes, they are going to get financially fucked.

Yes. 9-11 was approved by and facilitated by USA's aweful governing powers.

With what we know now...the Dixie Chicks did not support the war and it

turns out ....well you know Bush Cheney etc. etc. etc.treason.

Yeah.. I think you've misjudged the Dixie Chicks. They are all-American girls that probably browse through Voat.

What they did is not the same.

They really really really really need to have their tax exempt status revoked, never should have had it.

i am atheist/pantheist and i support the tax breaks to churches. a lot of them run de-facto charities and really help a lot of people out. i don't have to be religious to see the good that some churches provide. now the mega churches on the other hand. those are basically gyms and recreational facilities by another name.

Time to dig up some of those dirty little secrets the NFL has been storing all these years..... it will be fun seeing what tools they use in the days to come to avoid taxation....

It's a bit insane that they don't pay property tax, especially considering the amount of land they own. I don't necessarily agree with the idea of property tax, but if I've got to pay it, they sure as shit should as well.

Property tax is the worst mother fucking tax why the fuck do i have to pay every year for something i fucking own and paid taxes on when i sell you fucking pieces of shit.. Who allowed this to start. I get taxes we kinda have to have them for important shit, but if i have a house i either paid for or inherited why should I pay taxes on it forever its absolutly bull shit and you can lose your house.. Just fuck this shit.

philosophically you can't actually own land. you can only temporarily possess it. that is why there is eminent domain laws and the like. the land belongs to the society which is supposedly represented by the government. those taxes you pay are basically rent.

If you're in Las Vegas you have all the right in the world to be pissed. The city council managed to get funding for the stadium from the taxpayers without a public vote.

Edit: Typo

But the Raiders have such a history of loyalty. Why they only move when the stadium holders force them to. /s

It's going to come from the ROOM tax though not sales or property tax - so the tourists will end up paying it. The only thing I am sacred of is RAIDER FANS. Ewww. Please god let the stadium take FOREVER!

All pro sports suck, but football tops the list. Take, take, take, take! All the bullshit about creating jobs, and then they leave a stadium to default on munibonds and go elsewhere and pull the same shit. Billionaire owners and millionaire players.

Was what people would call a rabid baseball fan.

Not in any way any more.

When the 1994 major league baseball strike happened..

cancelling the 1994 season have never been the same.

Tried to go back. But with my favorite players here today...gone tomorrow,

I quit.

Lack of team and demographic loyalty turned me off.

Don't even turn on the World Series games.

I hope that this is not the case for many people. Am in the

'baby boomer' age group..born 1946 - 1964.

My age could affect my views here. Not sure.

What the NFL has done is like moving in with your next door neighbors, eating their food, driving their car, drinking their beer while telling all the other neighbors what assholes they are. Then they don't contribute a dime to them either.
