They had home field, they had the weird turf, and they had a little bit of history. But Real had the magic.  And the goal. In front of a teeming crowd of Timbers Army faithful, Real Salt Lake went into Jeld-Wen Field in Portland and notched one singluar...

Their vision was supported by many community partners, including the Timbers Army, UP Lady Pilots, Portland Parks and Recreation and many others.

Dear Fellow Timbers Army, Unless you are willing to put your noble sentiment aside and at least attempt to see what our FO is thinking, please stop polluting our chat boards with your idle threats, vitriol and short-sighted fears. If we still suck in two years, I shall join you in saying "GW Out". Until then, I pray that most of you will learn to adopt a "wait and see" attitude. With upmost love and RCTID Sincerely, Me

W/o the Timbers Army MLS doesn't happen either; MP wasn't convincing the City Council on his own. It's a partnership.

Timbers Army is unreal! One of the best supporters groups in the US.
Just went to the "Timbers Army" "Art Takeover". Wow. I really am quite disgusted. I haven't seen such a dense, unmitigated collection of bloodthirsty, gleeful violence metaphors in, well, years at least. Folks, sports is NOT that kind of violence. And you are NOT an army. Get back to me when games can be assumed to leave dead, mutilated bodies on the field at the end of every day. And you're "in" the "Timbers Army"? Get back to me on that one when you walk into the stadium sincerely unsure if all of *you* will still be alive and able to walk at the end of the game. Sports has been around in basically the modern form for well over a hundred years now and people (many of them at FAR more risk than you or the Timber players) have done just fine with metaphors built around horses, hammers, mountains, and stormy days. There is no reason that you "just have to" build your experience around fantasies of being mobs of conditioned, blindly obedient, hired killers to make your sitting in chairs and watching a bunch ...
