According to an article published on March 17, 2014 at EOSnews, “the former president of the National Football League, Robert Kraft, is suing the NFL and its owner, NBC, over allegations that the network used the league’s money to fund a football program called The Voice.” The article notes that the suit was filed on January 9, 2014 by Kraft in New York state Supreme Court.
Kraft’s suit claims that the NFL was using the league’s money to fund The Voice and that the network was a “public nuisance” because it was using the league’s money to fund a program for people to listen to singers like Taylor Swift and Alicia Keys. The complaint also claims that the NFL’s actions are illegal because it’s a tax exempt organization that was created by Congress in 1947.
And that it’s a public nuisance because, as part of the lawsuit, Kraft is asking the court to declare the NFL guilty of violating its public rights. The NFL is claiming that the NFLs actions are illegal because it is a tax exempt organization created by Congress in 1947.
That’s right, you know the NFL is a tax exempt organization that was created by Congress in 1947. Although that’s true, Kraft argues that it is a public nuisance because of its role in publicizing the NFL and its players playing in the NFL. In his view, the NFL is exploiting the public, which is why it needs to be regulated. A public nuisance would be a thing that harms the public by interfering with or damaging its normal activities.
Kraft suggests that the NBA is also a public nuisance. He cites the NBA’s annual All-Star game, which is a huge event attended by millions of people. I’m not sure I would disagree with him on this one. However, the NFL’s All-Star game is an annual event attended by millions of people, so I would agree with Kraft on this one.
The NBA is a huge event, but Kraft suggests that there are plenty of private parties in which people can go to, and that the league would like the public to know about them. I have never been to any of those parties, but Kraft implies that such parties are happening in order to lure more fans to the team. This is also why players have to be more discreet about their personal lives, which is why I think the league has a responsibility to enforce the rules.
I think Kraft is right to suggest that the league has a public responsibility to enforce the rules. But the thing is that if you have a “public responsibility,” then the rules are automatically more difficult to follow. Think about it.
Kraft’s explanation of what the league is up to is really good, but I think it’s important to point out that the league isn’t doing anything malicious or illegal. It’s just doing what it does best, which is having a competitive environment and letting people do what they want, when they want.
The league has rules. Rules are not always easy to follow, but in our experience the rules are easy enough to follow, at least at first, and you can always learn new ones as you play through the game.
