Portland Lumberjacks Press Releases

  • When does this become depressing? +

    Portland, Or. Yes it was a disappointing season this past year, but at least this time we were prepared. There were no high and mighty promises, no over the top press conferences, no big FA splurges, nothing really that would cause the fans a false sense of expectation in the season. This year was as expected. In fact, for the first time in a long time, just maybe they even exceeded expectations? I mean, who would have thought after we opened with a 0-19 record and then eventually fell to 2- 31 that we would finish with 16 wins? We had our first three win streak in 4 years and there was a great sense of fun when the kids Read More
  • An arse on the bench is an arse on fire +

    Portland Or, Haven’t things been shaken up these past few weeks? Portland earn back to back wins, are 5 – 5 over the last 10 games, the team was able to claim Blair Call a former first round pick and Albert Mitchell has been playing his best basketball since arriving in Portland 2 seasons ago. Lets break it down, starting with the Albert Mitchell situation. The reality was that Albert was playing such bad basketball, the team were considering faking an injury to get him out of the locker room for a while. After not heeding the advice to not miss another shot, Albert played another bad game, and was subsequently benched. Since Mitchel has been staring on the pine, he Read More
  • Gm faces the media finally. +

    Portland, Or. It is with much hesitation that I stand here today before you all. I know that no one has turned up with any sense of excitement, I also know that the new soccer team is getting more attention than the city’s beloved Lumberjacks, and that is because you guys and girls in this room continue to produce news stories that don’t align with your agenda. I know you guys want me out of here, I know you are stirring up the public to come at me and boycott the games and I know that there are some things that need clarifying so here it goes. Here are some answers to your fake news stories. 1. We are not Read More
  • Portland puch for an Ice Hockey team +

    As yet another season rolls around, the Portland Lumberjacks find themselves yet again entrenched at the foot of the mountain. We thought at the start of the season, that if couldn’t get any worse than the session past. BUT after being humiliated by the storm, maybe it does get worse than previous seasons? The team current sits with 0 wins and 11 losses, the only team in the league to do so. They are second last in points scored and last or second last in just about every other category. There is not much hope that this season will turn into anything worth turning out for, and crowds have already started to waiver, even this early in the season. It Read More
  • Portland go shopping +

    After landing their a potential franchise player with the number three pick, Portland turned their attention to the FA market to complete their roster and try to bring some credibility back to the city. With a treasure chest of money available, but no real interest in playing for the perennial whipping boys of the league, GM Trent Meister needed to get creative with the way he built the roster moving forward. With 9 new signings joining the 3 draftees, this Lumberjacks team will look very different from seasons past. Our only hope is that the results will too. The first player to commit to the new Lumberjacks was Peter Granville who signed a 2 year 7.9 mill (Team option on Read More
  • Fresh meat +

    With the draft tucked away and fast asleep, lets break down the selections and newest members of the Portland Lumberjacks. With the number 3 pick, Portland selects PF Roger Destontaines, out of Pittsburgh. The Lumberjacks made no secret for their desire to draft Emmert. They had a hole at the three and Emmert was seen as the perfect fit all season long. Landing the best odds of the number 1 was a perfect start to grabbing their guy. The lumberjacks fell to three and well, even though Emmert was a dark horse for the number 1 spot, he was taken there leaving the Lumberjacks to scramble. Entre RD. The most popular option for the number one spot on most scouting Read More
  • I cant see. +

    Portland, Or. “Is it over? I can’t see” were the cries of the young Lumberjacks fan. You could hear it in his voice, the sound of frustration and excitement at the same time. “Get over here, it’s over” the young fans dad responds, there was no excitement or frustration in his voice, it was just a clear and obvious drained and uninterested interaction with his son. Yet again the Lumberjack fans were on the inside looking in on the OBWL playoffs. Time and time again they have just been plain terrible. No direction, no purpose, no hope and definitely no playoff appearances. This young lad was unable to see the final moments of the game 5 matchup between the highlanders Read More
  • There is just nothing to say +

    Portland, Or. Boy its been quiet in Portland this season! We are not just talking about the crowd numbers either that are hovering just over 9,000 a contest, creating an eerie feeling in the stadium. From the flamboyant rookie Ronald Richardson to the GM and all the media and staff in-between, there has just been nothing of note from this team. Obviously the results have not been of note, 7-44 is terrible. Last in the categories of points per game, rebounds per game, FGM, offensive efficiency and (tied for) defensive efficiency and finally turnover %. The team have sucked, and although their last 10 games have seen a 3-7 record, its still all quiet in the locker room. New recruit Albert Read More
  • Senior citzens only +

    Portland, Or. With all the glamour and expectation of the new season well and truly a distant memory, the hype and introduction press conferences like settled dust in the rear view mirror, we sit down with key FA signing Albert to talk about how he’s going out here in Portland. Tell us your thoughts on the season so far? “Well it is still only young, but I am here to be the face of this franchise. I am not concerned that we are 2 games in and haven’t won, last game we push the tritons to the end! It will come. It will come Albert we are sure of that, our concern is that you will be retired before then. Read More
  • Rookie draft review +

    Portland, Or. With the third pick in the 2021 draft the Portland lumberjacks took a chance on the 19year old kid Ronald Richardson. 6’10” and out of California, Ronald has already divided the fan base with his loud mouth and louder predictions. Already the youngest has protested the fact that the club will sell his jerseys with Richardson on the back instead of the RR he so desperately wanted. “Im the cream of the crop! These other cats are like the Ford, Toyota or Hyundai’s of this league, but me, I’m the Rolls Royce, When I roll, heads turn, when I move and play, you know you wanta have a look and let me tell you, you know you want Read More
