Portland Lumberjacks Press Releases

  • Portland FA review +

    Portland, Or. With a smile that could only be matched by a child on Christmas day, not just any child, but the one who already knows what is wrapped up and under the tree, the one who knows it is the very thing that was on top of the list in the letter sent to santa months earlier. GM Trent walked onto the podium to introduce the newest members of the Portland Lumberjacks, even before FA has finished the news that the Lumberjacks signed some players, decent players was too good not to call a press conference for. For the first time in some seasons, the executive team have something positive to talk about, well, not just positive in terms Read More
  • Lumberjacks 2023 draft class +

    Portland, Or. With yet another top 5 pick, the Lumberjacks went into the 2023 draft with lots of expectation and excitement. With the franchise starved of anything to celebrate over the past few years, this draft was seen as the beginning of the next season in the franchise’s history. There was a lot of movement pre-draft with the Lumberjacks. The first move was to grab a second top ten pick this draft while surrendering the enforcers juice pick in next seasons draft, while this is a bold move, as the team from NJ were by far the worst team this season, there is no guarantee that they will be in the same position next season. The amount of budget space Read More
  • 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
