These poll results also reveal that nearly half of these fans are lying.
Recently, there was a poll taken that asked 1,100 people who they disliked the most in the NFL, and because of his recent National Anthem protest, it was San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.
“The poll, taken last week, revealed that Kaepernick was “disliked a lot” by 29 percent of those polled, more than any of the more than 350 players asked about in the survey.”
Kaepernick and Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas stated recently they’ve gotten death threats because of their anthem protest, and according to a recent poll, nearly half of NFL fans would stop watching NFL games because of these protests.
“A recent poll of 1,128 Americans conducted by Yahoo Sports and YouGov revealed that 44 percent of fans claim they would stop watching NFL games if players continue to kneel during the anthem. Overall, 47 percent of those polled said they oppose Kaepernick’s protest, with 32 percent voicing support, and the remaining 21 percent either neutral or declining to answer.”
