Diddy Wants to Buy the Panthers-and Hire Colin Kaepernick

Panthers_Owner_Misconduct_Allegations_Football_05148

Welcome to Monday's Morning Mashup.

Soon after Jerry Richardson officially announced plans to sell the Carolina Panthers franchise, a rapper and mogul expressed his interest in the team.

Now that he's been named the world's highest-paid celebrity by Forbes, Diddy has a new title he's chasing after: National Football League owner.

"I would like to buy the @Panthers".

On multiple occasions when Richardson's conduct has triggered complaints - for sexual harassment against female employees and for directing a racial slur at an African American employee - he has taken a leaf from a playbook he's deployed in the past: Confidential settlements were reached and payments were made to complainants, accompanied by non-disclosure and non-disparagement clauses created to shield the owner and the organization from further liability and damaging publicity. "Let's make history", he tweeted Sunday night after current Panthers owner Jerry Richardson made it known he'd be putting the franchise on the market.

Steph Curry then got in on the action. But will he add Carolina Panthers owner to his resume?

The NFL said earlier Sunday that it had taken over the investigation, and a report emerged that multiple former team employees received financial settlements over inappropriate comments and behavior by Richardson in the workplace. Let's GOOOOOOO! Spread the word.

"I will immediately address the Colin Kaepernick situation and put him in the running for next year's starting quarterback", Diddy said. "It's just competition, baby", Diddy explains.

He focused on the halftime shows, and promised they would be the best. 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. The group handed out t-shirts with the Redhawks logo. One former female employee said Richardson summoned her to his office and asked for a foot rub.

The Panthers said on Friday that law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart and Sullivan would lead the internal investigation, and that former White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles, a minority team owner, would oversee it.

"I'm Native American", Bryan Proctor told a D.C. news station outside the Redskins game.

However, not everyone is convinced the team's name needs to be changed.
