CFN

Gazette staff
For all intents and purposes, sports are big (like, really big) businesses. Both collegiate and professional sports routinely rake in billions of dollars each year, yet, for whatever reason, these organizations were deemed untouchable — something the feds ought to keep their dirty little hands off of, no matter how high the dollar amounts.
