ESPN FC conducted an anonymous poll of 123 current MLS players and asked them an assortment of interesting questions about the players, coaches, and the league. As expected, Portland fared well. Of course I expected it, but then again I do perceive most aspects of our team through Rose City colored glasses. It’s nice to see validation from independent sources. There are some intriguing responses in the anonymous poll, but unfortunately ESPN FC does not post the complete results, just the highlights. More annoying, the results are split into two different posts. Actually, they split it all over the place. Good luck tracking them all down. After listing to the first couple of commercial pre-rolls, I got fed up and quit.
Best / Most Intimidating atmosphere: Portland.
Most Underrated Player: Nagbe tied for first with Dax McCarty, and Diego Chara tied for 2nd with Fabian Castillo.
Favored Coach: Caleb Porter in 6th.
