Boss moves: Diddy wants to buy the NFL

Boss moves: Diddy wants to buy the NFL

The tweet is in response to ESPN's suspension of Hill, who said folks who are upset with Dallas Cowboy owner, Jerry Jones, should could consider boycotting his advertisers. "Hip-hop mogul Sean "#Diddy" Combs weighed in on #Twitter, telling players "If you do whatever you do in unity, you can't be stopped".

The mega-mogul feels strongly about athletes being allowed to express themselves by kneeling during the US national anthem if they so desire, and was incensed by reports this week, suggesting NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had sent a memo to all team owners encouraging them to have their players and staff stand for the pre-game ceremony.

Last month, President Trump said during a rally in Alabama that any player who disrespects the flag should be "fired" by his team.

He describes the league under his ownership as "A league where you can be yourself", mentioning that even a retirement plan would be included for players.

The 47-year-old artist revealed his hopes to launch a league from his Instagram account as he hit out at the words of NFL commissioner Goodell. "Have the freedom to be a great homan and protest for your people without being demonized for your beliefs as a king!" "NEW DREAM ALERT!" "SELL ME THE NFL NOW!" he concludes. On average, a team costs about $1 billion to purchase.

According to the Business Insider, the National Football League is now worth $74.8 billion, with the average franchise valued at $2.3 billion.

Though Diddy may not actually be able to purchase the entire league, it will be interesting to see what action he takes in helping NFL players continue their protests.
