Former Titans' wide receiver Chris Sanders says the tax might not sit well with some players. "There is going to be some griping a little bit, guys get upset when they pay a lot of taxes because they get taxed in so many areas," Sanders explains.Musicians don't like it, either. American Federation of Musicians Local 257 President Dave Pomeroy:
Mr. Hardaway's bill suggesting a 'privilege tax' for professional entertainers and athletes is laughable in its premise, but also insulting to our community in a time when intellectual property is under attack and professional musicians struggle to make a living in the digital age when music is perceived to be 'free'. Music isn't free - we work for a living. While we all share his concern about funding the juvenile court system, I respectfully suggest that Mr. Hardaway look elsewhere for a more equitable solution.
