Grammy award-winning Rapper, Eminem, has an interesting rule change for The Alliance football league.
World famous, and usually aloof, rapper Marshall Mathers (aka Eminem) took to Twitter on Monday night to voice his opinion on the new football league, The Alliance, and it’s probably not what you think.
According to Mathers, he’d like the league to allow fighting — similar to the NHL. We’re not quite sure if we are more shocked that he’s watching The Alliance or that he actually cares enough to tweet about it.
“Dear [The Alliance], please entertain this thought regarding the [Birmingham Iron][Memphis Express] game: Allowing the players to actually fight would be key to league’s success, like hockey. I would watch every game (even though there is no Detroit team yet — hint). Don’t blow it. Sincerely, Marshall.”
Let that sink in a moment.
Eminem just tweeted about football … and it was The Alliance.
In case you haven’t heard about the league yet, here’s a brief reminder: The Alliance was announced in March by co-founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian. According to CBS Sports, “It’s an eight-team league that exists to both complement the NFL during the offseason and showcase local, developing talent.”
And Eminem is an edgy, deeply private rapper who many think is one of the greatest in the genre to date.
So how do these two totally random things connect?
We have absolutely no idea, and that’s what makes this tweet so incredibly bizarre (and amazing).
Oh, and for the record — football players have about as much business fighting on a field as MMA fighters have throwing a football.
