I don't think many people would have guessed the Timbers would be playoff eligible in October with three games remaining, but they are. Vancouver's anemic play and Dallas' inability to capitalize on Vancouver's slide has given Portland the slimmest of chances to make the playoffs mathematically.
I may not have the math right for Colorado, but whatever. There is mathematical probability but no reasonable hope for playoff glory for that team either. And in other news, six teams can still finish out the season at less than 1.00 ppg: TFC*, COL, POR, PHI, NER, CUSA. No season has had more than three teams under 1.00 ppg (1999, and 2011 the only instances).
*At 22 pts, 3 games left, max of 31 points, they already will have less than 1.00 ppg.
I didn't do any of these numbers. All credit to this thread.
Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
