Snoop Dogg has long been a prominent booster of youth football, but it seems like he's got some trouble in his own doghouse: The Chicago branch of the Snoop Youth Football League (SYFL) is facing major money problems.

MyFoxChcago reports that the Chi-Town SYFL allegedly owes tens of thousands of dollars on various bills. The situation has become so dire that one of the league's teams, the Pilsen Jets, had to cut short their season—despite the fact that they were set to play in the playoffs this past Saturday, Nov. 6. The team owes $22,000 for football pads, helmets and jerseys, and according to Fox, the sponsor would've stripped the teams of its uniforms and equipment if they had played Saturday's game.

“I don’t think it’s fair,” said Betty Arias, one of the players' parents. “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.”

"Snoop, I thought he was going to do a better job at supporting these games and stuff,” player Ulyses Lopez said.

Reps for the SYFL couldn't be reached for comment.
