Oakland Panthers, Freedom Football League: Interview With J.J. Lasley, CEO

Mr. J.J. Lasley talked with Zennie62Media, and was joined by his Chief Operating Officer, Carlos Meeks, and his Director of Social and Digital Media Christianne Harder.

The interview at Zennie62 on YouTube focused on how the Freedom Football League and the Oakland Panthers came to be. Lasley, a famed Stanford Football Legend and NFL Player with the Packers and the Ravens, explained that the FFL came about from a few ex-NFL players talking.

Lasley said that many were “concerned with the direction of the NFL” and wanted to make an alternative. A league that the players were invested in and could gain from that investment. The website explains “The Freedom Football League is rethinking all aspects of the game of football and it starts with the ownership and money. The FFL’s teams will be owned by a unique consortium that includes former NFL players, active players from each FFL team, the local franchise operators, and most uniquely, you the fan.”

What’s interesting about the Freedom Football League strategy is, it uses the current political discourse as part of its marketing. So, the Oakland Panthers are based in inspiration from the Black Panthers, and the logo that’s in development will reflect that. Lasley, Meeks, and Harder explained that the idea of the Oakland Panthers isn’t to replace the Las Vegas-bound Oakland Raiders, but to be its own brand – a new approach that reflects Oakland.

Some particulars:

1) There will be a Freedom Football League Draft, and that’s set for January 20th. Visit the Freedom Football League website for more information on how to become a player in the FFL.

2) The Oakland Panthers and the 10 teams of the FFL are seeking investment of $1 million per person as of this writing.

3) Games will be livestreamed, but the FFL executives are in talks with a number of potential streaming partners.

There’s more in our near-hour-long livestream conversation. But if you want to meet J.J. Lasley and his team in person, there’s a happy hour set for Thursday at 4 PM PST at Luka’s Taproom at the corner of Broadway and Grand Avenue in Uptown Oakland.

Stay tuned.
