Diddy has previously voiced his interest in owning an NFL team, and it seems like he plans to follow through. One of the reasons why he wants this deal to happen is due to there being no majority Black owners in the league.
The mogul lost out in the first round of bids for the Carolina Panthers last year and went on to say that he was no longer interested in owning an NFL team because it was “associated with oppressing black men.” However, with the Super Bowl being in Atlanta this past weekend, Diddy made a curious statement. TMZ caught up with the Bad Boy founder and asked if he’d reconsidered his ownership decision and to that he confirmed, “It’s time.”
However, Diddy is not the only one who hopes he can buy a football team. New England Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft caught up with TMZ and said he still hopes Diddy becomes an owner in the NFL.
