And if he can get the team, he'd like Colin Kaepernick to be part of it. "Spread the word. Retweet!", the rapper and mogul posted to Twitter Sunday.

Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry, who is from North Carolina and a huge Panthers fan, said he also wanted in on owning the Panthers.

Richardson, 81, attended the Panthers-Packers game Sunday in Charlotte.

The current Carolina Panthers owner, who has already put his National Football League franchise up for sale, is alleged to have said and done some very bad things.

Diddy also explained his other big plans. He wants Kaepernick to compete for the starting quarterback position.

If hired, it would signal quite the competition between Kaepernick and Cam Newton for the top spot.

In the repolling in Gujarat on Sunday, nearly all the six polling booths recorded more than 70 per cent turnout. One polling station from each assembly constituency will be randomly selected for counting of VVPATs slips. 9.

Not only does Diddy promise to be "the best National Football League owner that you can imagine" on his Instagram, he says he'll also immediately hire Kaepernick as the team's starting quarterback. "It's just competition baby, it's just competition".

He focused on the halftime shows, and promised they would be the best.

To which Diddy repsonded: "Holla at me". During Richardson's tenure, Carolina has reached the National Football League playoffs seven times, including twice to the Super Bowl, losing in 2004 and 2016. Gauging how much the franchise would fetch is hard, given professional football is still far and away the best-rated American sport, but has seen decreased ratings and increased polarization due to people like Kaepernick, who knelt for the national anthem to protest police brutality and racism in the U.S. The last NFL team to change hands was the Buffalo Bills, who were sold for $1.4 billion in 2014. "Let's make history", he continued.

This is nothing new, either.

"I want in on the ownership group!" "ATTN all @NFL owners, it's time for diversity!" "I think it's time for that". For years, Richardson held sway over many important committees, and was an influential player in the league's latest labor deal, which came after the owners locked out the players for several months in 2011. "So that's one of my dreams".
