Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is used to boos - it's an occupational hazard when you step under center for an NFL team. But he says not even that prepared him for the hate mail he got after presenting President Bush with an autographed jersey at a fundraiser for a Republican congressional candidate. Hasselbeck had company; fullback Mack Strong joined him at the event. Read their take on the whole situation here.

And it didn't take long for fans to sound off, with many telling the Seahawks they're done with the team because the two players hung out with the Prez.

So readers - what do you think? Is it really fair to hammer the 'Hawks just because of an appearance two players made, or did the duo step over some "line" by mixing sports and politics. Take your shot in the comments section.
