New NFL Policy, P. Diddy aka Sean Combs and the NFL Policy

Diddy says he doesn’t want to buy an NFL team anymore — ‘I don’t want to be associated with oppressing black men’

“I don’t want to be associated with oppressing black men. I don’t want to be associated with telling grown ass men what they can do and cannot do.”

Diddy has quit the NFL.

The 48-year-old rapper has frequently spoken out about his dream of owning a football team — and even put in a bid to buy the Carolina Panthers before eventually dropping out — but he’s lost all interest now that players are required to stand for the national anthem while on the sidelines.

The NFL’s new policy, announced last month, required players to either stand for the “Star Spangled Banner” or stay in the locker room. Anyone who kneels will face a fine.

The rule comes amid a protest against police brutality started by Colin Kaepernick that has since spread league-wide. The 30-year-old quarterback, who hasn’t played since the end of the 2016 season, is currently suing the NFL for collusion.

President Trump has also been vocal about the players who have kneeled, encouraging owners dealing with a protester to “get that son of a bitch off the field.”

The NFL Players Association, as well as several current players, reacted negatively to the new rule, a move that Diddy defended.

“Y’all in a messed-up position, but this is a defining time and if Ali and all them was able to do it, if Jim Brown was able to do it, if y’all stick together, they can’t break you,” he said.

Even though Diddy’s dream may be dead, he still knows how he would have dealt with this situation: “My players could have done whatever they want.”

Prejudice, Racism in America

Stand or Be Fined!!!…..The NFL Has New Policy Requiring Players to Stand

During the National Anthem or be fined!!!

Former 49er’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick began protesting the flag — which he called a symbolism of oppression of black people in America back in 2016.

After public backlash, Kaepernick got off the bench and kneeled on the sidelines. A few players joined him there, but the protest didn’t become a movement in the NFL until 2017, when President Donald Trump criticized Kaepernick and others for kneeling during the anthem.

According to the NY Daily News, players will have two options: stay in the locker room during the National Anthem or stand “and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.”
Team owners will be fined an unspecified amount if players defy the new policy and bring attention to themselves by kneeling on the sidelines.

The new rule will take effect at the start of the 2018-19 NFL season.

Trump Tells NFL Owners to FIRE Protesting Players: “Get That Son of a Bitch Off the Field!”

NFL players reacted with rage on Friday after President Trump told NFL bosses to fire players who protest and disrespect the American flag during games when addressing the national anthem.

Trumps comments were in response to reports that player protests have resulted in low TV ratings and half empty stadiums.

Trump made the statements during a rally for Alabama Senate candidate Luther Strange in Huntsville on Friday night.

NFL players were livid after hearing Trump’s remarks. Many of them took to social media to vent their anger at the Commander-in-Chief.

The NFL Players’ Union also issued a statement, saying they will never back down from protecting the players’ rights to protest.

The NFL Boycott, Let’s Discuss Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, has been struggling to find a new team since opting out of his contract last season. It all started when Kaepernick took to his knees during the national anthem, instead of standing during each game. Kaepernick staged a one-man protest last season by kneeling for African-Americans instead of standing for the national anthem before each week’s game.

But critics have said his refusal to stand for the “Star-Spangled Banner” has been disrespectful to this country and its service men. Therefore, the NAACP, The NYPD, The National Action Network and Kaepernick supporters across the board are calling for a boycott of the NFL games until Kaepernick gets an equal opportunity at making a roster for the upcoming season.
