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.”

What he said, White House Invitation

Philly Don’t want to go to the President’s party, so he’s making it about the National Anthem!


 

“The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated,”

Trump said in a “Statement by the President” issued by his press office.

Now why is President Trump saying this? Because only ten (10) players were going to attend.

In a fit of pique over NFL players’ refusal to stand for the national anthem, President Trump called a new play in the culture war by dis-inviting the Philadelphia Eagles from a White House event honoring their Super Bowl win. he’s making it about the flag because they were never going to attend.

“They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the national anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country,” Trump said.

In the meantime Philly mayor Jim Kenney countered Trump’s statement and said

“he is a fragile egomaniac obsessed with crowd size and afraid of the embarrassment of throwing a party to which no one wants to attend.”

No Eagles players sat or kneeled during the national anthem during the regular 2017 football season. But several raised fists or locked arms in protests.

Former Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith — who caught five passes in the Super Bowl — said Trump’s statement included so many lies.

“Not many people were going to go,” Smith wrote.

Smith — who says his dad served more than 20 years in the Army — added: “The President continues to spread the false narrative that players are anti military.”

Smith said. “The men and women that wanted to go should’ve been able to go. It’s a cowardly act to cancel the celebration because the majority of the people don’t want to see you. To make it about the anthem is foolish.
