NFL under fire for not paying taxes

The profitable US sports league is considered a non-profit organisation, exempting it from paying taxes.

    The Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos are finalising their preparations for Sunday's Super Bowl.

    The event generates millions of dollars - but some US politicians say the National Football League is not paying its fair share of taxes.
