Diddy Wants to Own an NFL Team One Day (Video)

At this point in his life, there aren't many things that Sean "Diddy" Combs hasn't done. Record label? Check. Acting career? Check. TV network? Check. But there is one thing that he's yet to do that he still plans on doing one day soon. While speaking with Bloomberg TV recently, Diddy admitted that he wants to be the first African-American majority owner in the NFL.

"I'm more of an owner type of guy," he said. "So I have aspirations to become—it will happen—to become the first African-American majority owner. Not having a small stake but actually owning an NFL team. I think it's time for that. A majority of the players in the NFL are African-American but there are no African-American owners. So that's one of my dreams."

Will he actually accomplish that dream? In the NFL, you can have all the money you want, but the league's owners have to actually okay you to spend that money on a team and become a part of their fraternity. And we're not sure if the current crop of NFL owners would be willing to do that for Diddy. But if there's anything we've learned from Diddy, it's that he can do just about anything he puts his mind to. So don't be surprised if you see him sitting in an owner's box—his owner's box—at an NFL game sometime in the near future.

Check out the clip above to hear him explain why he wants to do it.
