So what’s the truth? It was big talk about Jay Z collaborating with the NFL for Superbowl and then it turned into him becoming an owner of a team.. Now CBS sports is debunking that rumor citing it was all fabricated.
CBS Sports.comMultiple people connected to NFLownership and the league office have told CBS Sports that this TMZ-reported rumor is simply false, that there are no plans in place for the rap legend to become an NFL owner. Sources said it had people directly tied to the deal — within the Roc Nation team and within the NFL offices — scurrying to try to figure out who put the flawed info out there.
Was it leaked by someone with a particular agenda? Was it meant to obscure or conflate the actual intent of this arrangement?
Regardless, the deal does not include any ownership stake or parameters of a potential one. That’s not to say that Jay-Z will not at some point get a piece of a team through his work with the league and its owners. “Those kinds of deals don’t exist in the NFL,” as one super-plugged in ownership-level source put it. “There is no ownership component to this arrangement.”
I love Jay Z, he is like the mentor I never had, but let stans tell it he is playing chess… He is, but at the expense of his own people! I will forever respect Jay and his grind but sometimes I question his decision making skills; this was not a good move at all, but I guess we will have to sit back and really see what’s the tea!
