Diddy offers to buy National Football League in Twitter rant defending protesting players

Diddy Looking to Buy the NFL or Start His Own Football League

Making the change you want to see by buying the entire organization - well, at least in Diddy's eyes.

Diddy used to have dreams of owning an NFL team, but now he says his dream is to straight up buy the entire league.

The rapper and entrepreneur weighed in in the ongoing National Football League player protests by saying players would be able to express their beliefs without issue if he ran the show. "I did have a dream to own a nfl team but after this post my dream is to own our own league", he wrote.

Check out Diddy's string of tweets below. Of course, the league isn't for sale, but you should still hear him out. "Have the freedom to be a great homan and protest for your people without being demonized for your beliefs as a king!"

The hip-hop mogul finished up his rant with a simple, bold statement: "SELL ME THE NFL NOW!"

The controversy began when President Donald Trump urged NFL owners to "fire" any players who took a knee during the national anthem. For one, that's not how the league works - a different owner or group owns each of the 32 teams and vote to elect the leagues commissioner.

According to Forbes' latest 2017 update, Diddy is worth $820 million.

Diddy first quote-tweeted "Facts" on a tweet sent by CNN's Keith Boykin which read, "Black players are 70% of the NFL". The Dallas Cowboys are ranked as the most valuable franchise in the sport, at $4.8 billion, with the Buffalo Bills at the bottom end, at $1.6 billion. The POTUS proposed that players who do not stand for the national anthem should be fired from the league, as they are disrespecting both the country and its flag.
