The US is doing the right thing, prize money is income so it has to be taxed. A decent tax code does not care about the source of income and grant special rights to folks who make a living via sports. Actually such special rights are the main problem of tax codes worldwide.
When you tell the truth and take a stand, sometimes it means that you will walk the streets with a burdened heart. Sometimes it means losing a job, means being abused and scorned. It may mean having a seven, eight year old child asking a daddy, "Why do you have to go to jail so much?" And I've long since learned that to be a follower to the Jesus Christ means taking up the cross. And my bible tells me that Good Friday comes before Easter. - MLK, Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam
