- MLS Portland, PGE Park
Sounds like Portland mayor Sam Adams and County Chair Ted Wheeler are going to go toe-to-toe over the stadium situation for Portland and it’s MLS bid. The Portland Mercury is reporting more on the on-going saga of the stadium funds today.
Wheeler won’t support the $15 million for PGE Park. Adams is hoping to find another way to get Wheeler on board.
“If people believe that renovating PGE Park again is more important than some of the critical services in our community then that is up to them,” said Wheeler. “But from my perspective, the answer is no.”
More and more these reports make this situation more interesting and troublesome for the league. No wonder we are seeing plenty of reports about Montrel getting in the mix for 2011 again here too. While I still believe we will see Portland in two years, things have to get in place within the next couple months or this bid could see some real San Antonio-like trouble if you know what I mean.
