Will Diddy buy the Carolina Panthers?

Hip Hoptreprenuer Sean “Diddy” Combs, formerly known as Puff Daddy (for those getting on in life), wants to buy NFL team, Carolina Panthers.  The Carolina Panthers’ current owner, Jerry Richardson announced his plans yesterday to sell the franchise (amid sexual misconduct allegations) so Diddy took straight to social media to tell his fans his plans to become the first black NFL team owner, buy the Panthers, sign Colin Kaepernick and change the game, no pun intended.

This isn’t crazy news for those who follow Diddy on social media, he has already shared his interests in being involved with the NFL before, particularly during the online discussions surrounding Colin Kaepernick.

How much are the Carolina Panthers worth?
Forbes have estimated $1 billion
How much is Diddy worth?
$780 million

But net-worth figures are just estimates and this doesn’t reflect Diddy’s power and influence; someone as connected as Diddy won’t find it hard to get investors on board; he’s successfully done that in all stages of his life  and has a joint venture in Ciroc alone, the real question is – are the NFL ready for a black NFL owner?

What do you think it would be like to have Diddy as the owner of  an NFL team? Do you think the NFL will accept Diddy’s proposal? Comment below or tweet us @LengSection
