Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Sean Diddy Combs tweeted recently that he wants to own the National Football League.

Not a team ... the entire NFL.

The rapper went on a tweeting spree about his big idea on Tuesday.

"I did have a dream to own a NFL team but now my dream is to own our own league!" Diddy wrote.

"A league where you can be yourself. Have a retirement plan," he added.

"Have freedom to be a great human and protest for your people without being demonized for your beliefs as a KING!! NEW DREAM ALERT!!!!"

"SELL ME THE NFL NOW!!!!"

Diddy, 47, has been vocal about his support for former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and NFL players currently protesting during the national anthem.

It is unknown how one would go about purchasing the NFL, as each team is owned individually.

Diddy is worth about $820 million and the Dallas Cowboys are the most valuable team in football at $4.8 billion, according to Forbes.

The rapper began his Twitter exposé on Tuesday by commenting on a Keith Boykin tweet. Boykin's tweet read: "Black players are 70% of the NFL. We have the power to defend Colin Kaepernick and Jemele Hill from the forces that would silence them."

Diddy replied with a simple: "facts."

Kaepernick began his national anthem protests in 2016 in objection to racial inequality and police brutality.

Diddy circled back with his idea of owning the league with a post on Instagram.

"I did have a dream to own a nfl team but after this post my DREAM IS TO OWN OUR OWN LEAGUE. WHERE YOU CAN BE YOURSELF," Diddy wrote. "Have a retirement plan. Have the freedom to be a great human and protest for your people without being demonized for your beliefs as a KING!!!!! New dream alert!!!!! Sell me the NFL NOW!!!!...AND FOR THE RECORD I'M NOT EVEN MAD. IT'S OUR FAULT FOR NOT HAVING THE COURAGE OUR ANCESTORS HAD!!!!! Maaaaaaan!!!!"
