Coaches are the highest paid employees in 37 states!

This surely is an outrage and makes me wonder about where we are headed as a culture. In my state it is the university's basketball coach. How about your state?

That should have read public employee...

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Americans value athletes over everything else. Putting money (where their mouths are!) into coaches instead of lagging school systems, doesn't surprise me. Does it surprise you?

And the NFL is a non-profit organization that doesn't pay income tax.

"The league, which represents the 32 teams that make up the National Football Conference and the American Football Conference, is classified as a trade association and currently enjoys 501(c)(6) status, a designation reserved for business leagues. While the individual league teams are for-profit ventures, the league itself pays no corporate taxes because it does not technically make a profit -- this despite reporting revenue of more than $255 million in 2011. (As a nonprofit, the NFL must direct this revenue back into its operating budget, but there is no stopping it from doing so by way of exorbitant executive salaries.)"

As in Roger Goodell makes $29,500,000 a year.

These are the 'makers', not 'takers' and deserve to have their personal taxes cut because they're makers not takers.

Even thought most of the stadiums are heavily subsidized by the tax payers and all the associated infrastructure is payed by the public, and the teams often blackmail the municipalities into building them new, $400 million stadiums. With lots of sky boxes for corporate bigwigs.
