Alex Nimo Has Just Given RSL License to Fleece Portland for His Services

Nimo

Somebody please call Alex Nimo and tell him how single-entity and MLS work. Apparently dude is under the impression that he holds some sway and can possibly help facilitate his continued stay in Portland as the team moves up to MLS, even though RSL holds his contract, by claiming that he'll quit soccer if he has to leave the Timbers. I'm sure this "Rose City 'til I die or quit soccer full-stop" attitude will go over quite well with the Timbers faithful but I'm guessing RSL will be less than enamored by it.

I know he's only young but it is all just too much for such a young player to try and dictate his destination. I mean who does he think he is, The Biggest Midget in the Game™? Portland is great and all but damn son, RSL flew you out to MLS Cup and gave you a beer shower when you didn't even play for the team last year! And you're not even 21 yet so that shit's probably illegal! Where is your loyalty man?!

and here in Portland we look at him and say, "Will he really make it in MLS? He's not a player we're going to go out of our way for."

No one reads the newspaper anymore anyway, so really Nimo is not going that far out on a limb.

I suppose it might have something to do with growing up in Portland. Well, at least spending his high school years at Benson High School in Portland.
