Diddy Is Planning To Buy The NFL

Well he is Hip Hop's highest paid celeb according to the coveted Forbes List 2017, and now Diddy has big plans for his millions starting with buying the NFL!

 

The Bad Boy music mogul revealed that wants to buy America's National Football League so players will have the freedom to protest and express themselves during the national anthem by kneeling if they so please. His hopes to buy one of the biggest American sports leagues was reportedly spurred on by the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell called for all team owners to encourage their team players and staff to stand for the pre-game ceremony.

 

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones also sparked controversy when he said he'd bench any of his players who disrespect the flag, sparking a response from Diddy.

 

The 47-year-old entrepreneur posted his response on Instagram saying, "I did have a dream to own a nfl team (sic) but after this post my DREAM IS TO OWN OUR OWN LEAGUE,"

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just hours after the post NFL officials clarified the claims saying that no such order was made surrounding the National Anthem and that league officials are due to meet with team leaders to discuss how best to deal with the ongoing protests next week.

 

 

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began kneeling for the national anthem in 2016 in a bid to draw attention to racial discrimination and acts of police brutality.
