Article: High-profile entertainer wants to buy the Carolina Panthers I was going to post this at the Zone, but felt it would turn political. So Diddy wants to buy the Panthers. The reason? Because "there are no majority African American NFL owners" and so that he can " address the Colin Kaepernick situation and put him in the running for next year’s starting quarterback". I will save my personal opinion on Kaepernick, but to me, it is obvious Diddy is mentioning Kaep's name just to appeal to a certain group. Also, Kaep has no business competing for the starting QB role. He's too busy posing for GQ and accepting... awards... to think about football.
