Maybe it’s time for someone else to take over the NFL and maybe that person is Diddy.
The hip hop mogul took to social media on Tuesday to declare his interest in purchasing the football organization.
“I did have a dream to own a nfl lteam but after this post my DREAM IS TO OWN OUR OWN LEAGUE,” he shared on Instagram. “WHERE YOU CAN BE YOURSELF. Have a retirement plan. Have the freedom to be a great human and protest for your people without being demonized for your beliefs as a KING!!!!!”
“Sell me the NFL NOW!!!!” Diddy demanded.
The organization has come underfire after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to teams saying they should stand for the national anthem. Goodell and the NFL say they are taking steps to find a way to move from “protest to progress.”
Deadspin reported Monday that the NFL had quietly changed its rule about standing for the national anthem with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reportedly telling ESPN’s Chris Mortensen that the policy was “in best interest of players.”
At this point, maybe Diddy should be given a shot at owning the NFL.
