Caleb Porter: There’s probably no other MLS team I would have left for.

He's finally free to talk about Portland, and boy is he talking!

Needless to say, it sounded flattering when I first read his statement, "There’s probably no other MLS team I would have left for."

Wow. We must really have something special here, yeah? Indeed. Of course "special" in this case, appears to mean completely useless. Part of what draws Caleb to this job is that he gets to build from the ground up, because, as we all know, we are still at the ground level with this team. For us, that sucks. At least, right now it does. But for him, it's means he's got the whole slate to work with. He's not trying to carry on a legacy. He's not trying to fit himself into a system that was already established. There is no legacy, which means he can start the painting with the sketch. He's got the canvas all to himself.

Assuming, of course, that Gavin and Merritt are actually going to let him do it, and give him time to get over the bumps.

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.
