This Just In: Portland Councilman Now Against MLS Deal

RL

Ain't no drama like PDX stadium drama. Hot on the heels of Merritt Paulson's withdrawl of one baseball relocation proposal one of the Portland City Councilmen who voted for the ordinance to bring Major League Soccer to Portland has now said that he's going to vote against it if it means losing the city's baseball team.

I love that unlike many places in America, the citizenry are vocal, and politically active but I'm starting to wonder if this deal will ever get done. But while we're all waiting for the dramatic conclusion of "As The Stadium Deal Turns" we can watch the Timbers play Minnesota tonight on FSC at 11pm EST; if we listen close enough I'm sure we'll hear some choice words for Mr. Leonard from some of the faithful.

The city should spend the money on working to get all the fake hipsters jobs, curbing the meth problem and getting rid of the crackheads in that city before spending it on a stadium. I have never seen so many crackheads in one city in my life. Paulson is a rich piece of shit. If he really wanted a team, he would fix up that stadium himself- or just have his daddy write him a check
