    RENTON, Wash. Cheap Joe Namath Jersey . -- Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane said he heard from San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick last week after Lane sat during the national anthem prior to the teams fourth preseason game.He reached out to me and just told me thank you, standing behind me, Lane said.Lanes decision came less than a week after Kaepernick first sat in protest of American racial injustice and minority oppression.Lane said he plans to continue to sit going forward. Asked if he expects any teammates to join him, Lane said, I dont know. I dont want to put any pressure on anyone. Im doing it for me.In coordination with his protest, Kaepernick said he will donate $1 million to various causes. Lane said he didnt know if he would follow suit.I havent thought about that, Lane said. Not saying I wont, but I havent thought about that.Lanes teammates said they stand behind him.I think its his right to be able to protest, and I think its all right, defensive end Michael Bennett?said. Theres definitely some issues in America that a lot of people are starting to recognize. I think people have recognized them before, but I think with social media and the things that are going out, the media outlets, everybody has a chance to really show what is going on and their ideas and really having a chance to really protest what they think is wrong with America. And thats OK. Thats what its about.Its about people having that right to have their voice, and I think its cool that Jeremy Lane is doing what he wants to do. Obviously, theres so much going on right now in America. Footballs just a small part of what we do. At the end of the day, well be football players for 12 years or 10 years or whatever it is. But at the end of the day, were still minorities and black men in America, and thats what were going to be for the rest of our life. And if you want to protest about things that are going on, thats fine.Added safety Kam Chancellor:?I havent talked to him about it. I really dont know what to say about that. Thats his own beliefs and his own thing he wants to do. Hes supporting somebody he believes is doing it for the right cause and the right reasons. So thats just freedom of speech.Bennett said Seahawks players and coaches talk often about the issues Lane and Kaepernick are protesting.Its not just the African-American players. Its the white players too, Bennett said. They all see it, and we talk about it. Its good. Its good that we can have a conversation about it, and people dont get angry and people understand where people are coming from, and you just understand both sides of it. Cheap Jets Jerseys .

STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- Canadas blue-line will get an injection of international experience when Vancouver Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis arrives at the IIHF World Championship.

Hamhuis and the Vancouver Canucks were swept in the first round of NHL playoffs by the San Jose Sharks. Hamhuis played in four straight world championships for Canada from 2006 to 2009. He was a member of the last Canadian team to win world championship gold in 2007. He also won silver medals in 2008 and 2009 and the second time under current head coach Lindy Ruff. "Im happy to help," Hamhuis said before departing Vancouver. "Its been a great experience over the last four years that Ive been playing (at worlds).

Brodie -- are representing Canada for the first time in their careers in this tournament. Only Luke Schenn and Stephane Robidas had played in a previous mens world championship.
