Nice article. Love the Timbers coverage guys.
seems a class act. glad to have him. welcome to pdx cap'n jack.
yawn. is this still happening?
Thanks for spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on this when we have over 10% unemployment. Pour more money into over-paid athletes - that's who needs to money most.
Just a note re: "J" The tall pole (or tree) that Timber Jim climbed is called a spar, not a snag. I wish Timber Joey would climb a spar tree, too. That was my favorite part about the Timbers of old.
This game is going to be epic.
yawn; lame-ass post by lame-ass graham. fitting.
You're right, Miller should grow that afro again.
I myself have been feeling guilty for calling Aldridge "LaGina" for the past year and a half, so I bought a number 12 jersey to try and make up.
Lakers 3-Peat...Suck on it P. Town!
Man, it would be easier to be optimistic if this article seemed a bit more realistic. First of all, it's not clear to me that Steve Blake wouldn't be a very good sub for this team, certainly ahead of Bayless at the 1.
Brandon Roy is an excellent player, but nothing we've seen last year makes me think that things will get significantly better this year, except (hopefully!) his health. We still don't know how well he and Miller can play together, especially now that he "wants the ball a lot more". I remember last summer - and the one before - reading about Roy saying how he's working to get better moving off the ball, coming off screens, cutting, etc., but we haven't seen any of that since. This is inexcusable now, with someone like Miller who can - and will - deliver the ball at the right time and place, if you move. Usage rate, in and of itself, is not a positive or negative stat. A high usage rate could come from a chucker with a lot of TOs to boot (not that Roy is either).
Your Bayless analogy - fly crashing into a window - is unfortunately more accurate than you maybe meant it to be. He can be a nice player, but he still hasn't shown the ability to make good decisions on the move, and has a tendency to just lower his head and go into the teeth of the defense. If he doesn't get bailed out by a foul - which he's pretty good at, luckily - his ability to finish is very suspect.
Consider that, at this point, the team has zero completely healthy centers. None. Camby is (and has rarely been throughout his career) reliably healthy; Joel is coming back from a horrible double-whammy injury, and nobody knows how he'll hold up; Oden is ... we all know where he is; and even Pendergraph, who ate up some minutes at the 5 last year, is out. Some teams might survive that, but the Blazers perimeter players - primarily Miller and Roy - are not good defenders, and their #1 PF is a mediocre rebounder for his position, especially on D. This spells trouble.
Just in case you're still seeing life "en rose", here come the Blazers and stumble their way through pre-season, with Roy and Miller playing very poorly, and the team showing little cohesion on offense and no interest in defense. Yes, yes, it's "just pre-season". But I'd rather have Roy play 10 moderately effective minutes, than 30 poor, disinterested ones. I don't expect the veterans to necessarily dive for loose balls or take charges willy-nilly, but they do need to play within the team and start getting into shape. Opening day is around the corner.
Oh, and the "shocking athleticism" is not Armon Johnson's - it's Elliot Williams's, who is by most accounts not quite ready to contribute at this level, athletic or not. This is the kind of mistake that doesn't lend credibility to the whole article, with all due respect.
Rip City to the max....
There is nothing more repulsive than watching some gay kickball exhibitionist performing the Gay Swann Dance to the tune of “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story sung by the Gay Timber Army Choir while chugging their beers and fondling their neighbor’s nuts.
In America, if you’re too clumsy for baseball, too short for basketball and too weak for football, kickball is your game. And avid kickball fans are almost exclusively located among two groups of people (a) foreigners and (b) pretentious radical left wing liberal Anti-American DEMOCRAT two faced environmentalist bike riding, all self important, arrogant, self serving, white, bourgeois yuppie snobs.
That was a great wiki overview of the general picture of American soccer and a cursory run at what the game is about in Oregon. What I find tiring after thirty some years is the discussion of "will soccer ever make it in the US?" and all its variants. The earliest records unearthed show Portland Municipal Judge Cameron donating a cup that bore his name for the State Championship apparently won in 1902 and 1903 by the “winged A's” of the Multnomah Athletic Club (MAC). Which gives special irony to the Timbers' present digs in the shadow of today's MAC Club. The game in Portland has always included an international connection as well. The Portland champions, Peninsula, opened the 1920 season with an exhibition against English sailors from the British freighter, M. de Larinaga, which was loading flour. Much more is known about soccer in Portland and its ebbs and flows, its heroes and champions, its dynasties and its visionaries. The Oregon Adult Soccer Assoc. website has a brief piece from which these items were taken. And, as the OASA historian, I am trying to fill in more about the heroes of Oregon soccer. Some of whom were Timbers. You can find posts at SoddenPitch on blogspot.com
