He has previously expressed interest in owning an National Football League team, CBS Sports reported, although even the cheapest team, valued at more than $1.5 billion, exceeds his estimated net worth of about $820 million.
That, according to Forbes, leaves Diddy around $780 million off being able to buy a team, with the rapper valued at approximately $820 million. Could ownership of the NFL or another league be next on the horizon for the Bad Boy honcho? Making the change you want to see by buying the entire organization - well, at least in Diddy's eyes. "Have a retirement plan", he added. "Have the freedom to be a great human and protest for your people without being demonized for your beliefs as a KING!" Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began the protests last season when he kneeled during "The Star-Spangled Banner" as a way of responding to the oppression of people of color in America. Diddy began in a series of tweets Tuesday evening. 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. Boykin's tweet read: "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".
Hip hop mogul Diddy has a Hail Mary proposal for the NFL - sell him the entire league.
His fiery comments ignited a huge backlash last month (Sep17), when a host of team owners showed their support for their players by linking arms and/or kneeling on the field prior to their games, while a number of musicians also did the same during their shows.
