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

Rapper Sean Combs, better known as Diddy, says he wants to own a football league to rival the NFL after a leaked letter showed Roger Goodell wanted players to stand for the national anthem. Have a retirement plan.

In response to the letter which is aiming to simply end protests instead of hearing players out, Diddy went on a Twitter rant about the league.

"I did have a dream to own a NFL team but now my dream is to own our own league!". "NEW DREAM ALERT!", the hip-hop mogul continued.

The NFL are facing increasing pressure after appearing to blackball player Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem in protest against police brutality.

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. 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.

According to Forbes' latest 2017 update, Diddy is worth $820 million. Many additional players took part in the protest on the first Sunday after Trump's remarks.

An NFL team, on average, costs about $1 billion to purchase, with the Dallas Cowboys being the highest-valued at $4.2 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.
