The Willamette Weekly has an interesting article on the Timbers Army, 107ist and the power they hold over the Portland TImbers as a whole. I'm not sure how accurate some of the underlying claims are of the Timbers Army "having too much power" but there are still some interesting factoids and interviews in the article, especially with Ryan Pore and Timbers Army billboarder Abram Goldman-Armstrong.
Check it out, just remember this is the Willamette Weekly. Take it with a grain of salt.
Enjoy the morning news!
