Time for a new one if we are to get through these before the release of the list. Going to start throwing these up every day now if possible and I have created a Section called Community Protected list. One point of clarification I want to make is that you can vote for as many as you want to keep but the top 11 will be kept based on votes received.
How it works:
He is a little tougher to find quality information on as this was his first year and he didn't play a single first team minute. He did however lead the team in non-league game minutes with 428 minutes. However the biggest accomplishment in a Timbers uniform was the 2010 PDL championships which he helped win with 3 goals, out of his 5 total. Makes less than a 5th year teacher (Me) at $32,600.
A Diego Chara like player who is a true box to box central midfielder. Showed great field general like skills in his captaincy of the 2010 PDL team. His work ethic also helped land a spot on the 2011 Timbers roster.
He is young and will need time to develop and plays in a spot where he is 5th on the depth chart. Needs experience and will only get that in the reserves or on another team.

So should do we Protect him or do we leave him unprotected? Remember vote with Yes or No in the subject line.
