Having once pushed the idea of becoming the first black NFL team owner, Diddy seems to now be disenchanted with the NFL. In an interview with BigBoyTV on Friday, the hip-hop mogul and host of The Four explained that he doesn't want to own an NFL team anymore. "I don’t want to be associated with oppressing black men," he said. "I don’t want to be associated with telling grown ass men what they can and can’t do.”

In the past, Diddy has expressed interest in buying into an NFL team, mainly the Carolina Panthers after the teams owner Jerry Richardson shared plans to put the team up for sale at the end of 2017. Diddy has also shared his thoughts on creating a separate football league via Twitter.
