PFE top managers will get pink slips
More front page PFE news this morning reporting that PFE's limited partners have decided to replace Marshall Glickman and Mark Gardiner with an "experienced sports management firm"

The three companies being considered as replacements include Oregon Arena Corp., which runs the Rose Garden and is controlled by Portland Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen. But Oregon Arena Corp. is "not the leading candidate" to manage the city-owned stadium, said limited partner Peter Stott, president and CEO of Crown Pacific. Stott would not disclose the two other candidates.


Also in the sports section...

Concern over future adds to Timbers' disappointing finish
Which details the Timbers worries about their financial future...

"Everyone is concerned with where things are at," Timbers general manager Jim Taylor said. "And we all know without a shadow of a doubt is we can do better in a lot of areas.


...a summary of the positive things about the season (attendance, making the playoffs) and the things that can be improved on.

Howe and Taylor agreed, saying the Timbers need more speed and height as they prepare for next season.

"We probably had a little bit too much talent in our front line to give everyone a fair shake to start and get playing time," Taylor said. "That's where we got ourselves a little bit sideways. But the guys all handled it very well."


...and a quote about players returning next year.

Howe said it's too early to determine if there will be many changes between now and next season. Most players, including Napoleon, signed one-year contracts with option years.

"We'd love to have his services next year," Howe said.

Napoleon said, "If they, because of financial or any other reason, decide they don't want to pick up my option or renegotiate, then most likely I'll go back to (Major League Soccer). But I'm satisfied. I really enjoyed the year and my teammates."


I think it's sad that the players who have put so much into this year for the Timbers and the fans have to spend time worrying about their future here in the already uncertain world of pro-sports. Good luck guys!
