At least in Chi-Town!
Snoop Dogg's Chicago branch of the Snoop Youth Football League (SYFL), which he founded in 2004, owes some major bones! Tens of thousands of bones, actually.
One team, the Pilsen Jets, had to forfeit a playoff game this past weekend because they owe $22,000 for football pads, helmets and jerseys. If they would have played, their sponsor would have stripped them of their uniforms on the spot.
Obviously, parents aren't happy, with one saying:
“I don’t think it’s fair. I think it’s more humiliating for them to show up there and asked to take off the equipment, asked to take off your uniform right after the game.”
A young player can't help but feel slightly betrayed by the leagues founder, saying:
"Snoop, I thought he was going to do a better job at supporting these games and stuff."
Aww! That stinks, especially considering the Chicago division was just launched this past summer!
Snoop has yet to comment on the unfortunate situation, but we hope he figures out a way to get these kids the funding they need to keep playing!
