Portland Timbers Owners In The Huffington Post
From Merritt-ocracy: The Paulson Sporting Doctrine by Dave Zirin at HuffingtonPost.com:
"Merritt [Paulson] is not the sole owner of the Beavers and Timbers; he has only an 80 percent stake. The man with the 20 percent stake is his father, Hammerin' Hank. If you can keep the bile out of your throat for a moment, you have got to give the Paulson family credit for cheek. You can almost imagine the scene: the Paulsons sitting around the dinner table, munching on bald eagle pate, ruminating on their $700 billion credit line and saying, "What's $85 million more?""
Bald eagle pate! HA! Still he's kind of got a point...why do you need someone else's money when you got shedloads of your own? I won't pick on them though since they managed to get MLS a mention on Huffington without mentioning David Beckham.
