All 32 teams were never tax exempt. The league office (commissioner and such) were tax exempt from 1942 until 2015. The tax loophole that allowed this is the concept that there head office does not generate revenue and simply is a governing body.

Didn't sound like he did with that tweet but if they're going to be making political statements that tax exempt status SHOULD be yanked!

This is the angle I am going for. They are tax exempt. They don't have a right to make political statements.

The NFL gave up that status years ago. Turns out trying(and continuously failing) to get people to understand how it actually works isn't worth the few millions it was saving them(long story short: most of the money they collected went straight to the teams, who are the ones who pay tax on it).

Trump pleaded and begged to be an NFL owner, he's just pissed he didn't get to be part of the club. Hell he wrecked the entire USFL trying to get a football team. He's just a sore fucking loser.
