Just After Kaepernick Files Lawsuit Against NFL, Master P. Makes Him An Unusual Offer
Over the weekend, Colin Kaepernick, turned heads yet again when he filed a grievance against the NFL. With the way the NFL has been doggin’ him, the legal move came as no surprise to the former NFL quarterback’s fans, but of course, many right-wing Conservatives and Trump supporters were ticked. Now, Kaepernick’s fans are supporting him more than ever. In fact, many celebrities have also spoken publicly in support of the blackballed quarterback and Master P. is the latest to approach Kaepernick with an alternative to the NFL. *Scroll down for video*
Master P.’s Offer:
According to TMZ, Master P. is speaking out about the NFL controversy and the treatment Colin Kaepernick has endured. Of course, the No Limit Records CEO sees the real deal and he knows exactly why Kaepernick hasn’t set foot on an NFL field this year. When asked about the ordeal, P. offered his opinion and he also had a major offer for the talented quarterback:
“I’ll help him start his own league. I think he should, I mean he’s a great football player. I think the NFL should have some competition.”
Master P. also shared his opinion on the expression of First Amendment rights. He feels Colin Kaepernick can only be totally effective in his efforts if he’s allowed to flourish in a league of like-minded, equal opportunity thinking individuals. Check out the video below:
If anyone is up for the task, it’s probably Master P. With his new Global Mixed Gender Basketball league, he’s already hit the ground running and he’s connected with big names in the athletic world including, “Gonzalez Twins, Glen “Big Baby” Davis, and former Los Angeles Lakers’ small forward, Metta World Peace.
A Long Time Coming?
Master P.’s latest offer for Colin Kaepernick follows other celebrity opinions on alternatives to the NFL. Like Master P., Diddy also expressed interest in starting a league. The Bad Boy CEO’s statement was a response to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s statement condemning silent protests. With so many affluent, wealthy African-Americans in the United States, a show of unity could very well be the first step toward a new football league that promotes the exercise of First Amendment rights. Hopefully, the NFL controversy is the first step toward positive changes.
