Diddy Wants To Own His Own Football League Amid Protest Controversy

With the NFL practically siding with Donald Trump’s request for players to stand for the national anthem, many are beginning to look at the league as a sports platform where African-American athletes have no voice at all.

Yesterday, commissioner Roger Goodell issued a memo saying that while the NFL respects the rights of its players to express their views on “critical social issues,” he would prefer they all stand for the national anthem.

The memo came just days after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones threatened to bench his players for “disrespecting the flag.”

In response to the perceived dictatorship and the overall attempt silence those who wish to bring awareness to social injustice, hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs took to Twitter to profess his desire to own his own league.

“I did have a dream to own a NFL team but now my dream is to own our own league!” he wrote.

“A league where you can be yourself. Have a retirement plan. Have freedom to be a great human and protest for your people without being demonized for your beliefs as a KING!! NEW DREAM ALERT!!!!”

Diddy then went on to say, “SELL ME THE NFL NOW!!!!”

Earlier in the day, he cosigned a tweet by CNN’s Keith Boykin who said, “Black players are 70% of the NFL. We have the power to defend Colin Kaepernick and Jemele Hill from the forces that would silence them.”

Check out Diddy’s tweets below.
