The NFL says a new poll shows a majority of fans now support kneeling during national anthem.

Week 1 of the NFL season kicked off in full force on Sunday afternoon and created discussions among football fans.

Some teams drew attention by kneeling during the national anthem while others remained in the locker room. Many vocal critics on social media discussed boycotting the NFL due to the demonstrations, but a recent poll shows that the majority of people asked supported the kneeling.

GamblersPick conducted a survey of NFL fans in late August and asked about the upcoming season and the potential demonstrations during the national anthem.

The company started the poll with the question, "Do you the support Black Lives Matter movement" and then separated the responses by fanbases.

The poll showed that the fans most likely to support BLM also cheer for the Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks. On the other hand, fans of the Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers were more likely to oppose BLM.

The poll continued with questions about players kneeling during the national anthem, adding helmet decals supporting BLM and flying the BLM flag next to the American flag at stadiums.

Of those polled, 68.6% of fans supported NFL players protesting police brutality while another 14% opposed the move. The remaining percentage didn't lean one way or the other.
