Michael Sam’s decision to open up about his sexuality has generated quite a bit of discussion among sports fans and broadcasters alike this week, but few have offered thoughts as on-the-nose as this two-minute segment from Dale Hansen, sports analyst for Dallas’ WFAA 8 News. If a league worth billions welcomes the founders of dog-fighting rings, drunk drivers, accused rapists, and a whole lot more, it seems pretty disgusting to suggest that a gay man would be the only one who isn’t welcome in an NFL locker room. source

A short break from teaching algebra: Former NFL quarterback (and current math teacher) Jon Kitna is stepping back into the league to help give the Dallas Cowboys a little help after their star quarterback, Tony Romo, got injured. Kitna, 41, will get paid $51,300 for playing backup in Sunday’s game—a total he plans to donate to the high school where he works. It’s the first game he’s been listed on the roster since 2011.

Section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code provides for the exemption of business leagues, chambers of commerce, real estate boards, boards of trade and professional football leagues, which are not organized for profit and no part of the net earnings of which inures to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual.
The NFL is considered a nonprofit by federal law (in fact, as the tax-code quote shows above, the league gets a specific call-out). How the heck did that happen? Long story, but Sen. Tom Coburn wants to change that.
