NFL Admits More Than $700K in Taxpayer Funds May Have Been Used for Military Tributes

NFL Admits More Than $700K in Taxpayer Funds May Have Been Used for Military TributesABC News first reported last November on documents it exclusively obtained showing more than 70 contracts with specific mentions of patriotic moments for which major league sports received taxpayer money to stage, totaling more than $6 million in taxpayer money. In a letter released exclusively by ABC News to the senators investigating the practice, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell admits, following an independent audit of “contracts between NFL clubs and the military,” that more than $700,000 in payments may not have been used for recruitment activities, but instead for honoring troops. Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain, both R-Ariz, the senators investigating the allegations, praised the NFL in an interview with ABC News for its response, saying it is the first time either of them can remember an organization admitting it may have been at fault and taking action to rectify.
