Master P wants to help Colin Kaepernick start a rival league.
Despite an injury to one of the NFL's best quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers, Colin Kaepernick is still without a job in the NFL. While the near future may look pretty bleak for the football player's pro career, hip-hop mogul Master P has a solution for the embattled former San Francisco 49er: if you can't join 'em, make your own league.
According to a report from TMZ Sports, if Colin Kaepernick isn't able to return to the NFL, Master P is all about giving the pro sports giants some competition by helping the QB start his own football league. “We have to start owning things," said the No Limit Records founder. "Without real ownership you have no control, no matter how much money you make [or] what you bring to the league." According to P, you can't get ahead if your cupboard is bare of any assets. “You’re never going to win if you don’t own nothing,” he added.
Last weekend, we reported that Colin Kaepernick had taken action against the league that has spurned him for over a year and filed a grievance under the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement (CBA) for collusion against the owners in the league. In a move that surely won't get him a ton of love from the players, Kaepernick bypassed the NFLPA and is instead being represented by Mark Geragos, a noted celebrity attorney who has previously represented the likes of Michael Jackson and Chris Brown. That same day, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell proclaimed that it was his belief that all players should stand for the anthem, however a rule that would've made standing for the anthem mandatory was ultimately rejected as an alternative.
"I’ll help him start his own league,” continued Master P, who seems to be sharing similar thoughts that Diddy did not long ago about football league ownership. “I think he should, I mean he’s a great football player. I think the NFL should have some competition.” Though there's no way of telling how a rival league would compete with the NFL (this is the part where anyone who watched and XFL game should chime in), but there's no doubt that rumblings continue to grow surrounding a changing of the guard when it comes to professional football in America.
