NFL: Players left surprised as fans boos during the moment of silence in season opener

National Football League(NFL) players has been caught by surprise by the boos that was rained on them from the stands at Arrowhead Stadium when Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans stood to show support against social injustice ahead of season opener.

A section of supporters within the stadium jeered loudly as players from both teams linked arms before kick-off for what the league had described as “a moment of silence dedicated to the ongoing fight for equality in our country”.

The NFL kicked off after a summer of protests against police brutality and racism across the United States, following the police killing of George Floyd in May. When another black man, Jacob Blake, was shot in the back by police last month the protests moved to the sports world with the NBA, WNBA, MLB and MLS among the leagues postponing games in protest.
