The lawyers in the murder trial for Aaron Hernandez are looking into the fandom of potential jurors to weed out bias.

The Associated Press reports that the 1,000 potential jurors are being asked if they have ever been a Patriots fan and if they attended any games. The survey also asks whether Hernandez's career as an NFL player influences their view of his guilt.

An example question reads:

"Does the fact that Mr. Hernandez was a professional football player make you feel that he is more likely to be guilty of the charges in this case than an individual that did not play football professionally would be?"

This is just one of the many questions being asked during the jury selection, which include views on race, gun ownership, marijuana and tattoos.
