Revoke the Tax-Exempt Status of the National Football League

The NFL should not be tax exempt. In Santa Clara, they managed to avoid paying half of their property taxes on the Levi Stadium, thereby shorting the Santa Clara government and schools promised revenue. The only NFL team I can see that should be tax exempt is the Green Bay Packers because the town of Green Bay owns the Packers. I detest the local governments and the taxpayers therein being boondoggled into absorbing the costs of the NFL for the billionaires that own them. Not only do they rob the populace blind with these stadium deals, they don't pay their fair share to our society and finally they don't take care of the injured players who work for them.
