Portland Timbers Owner Merritt Paulson Pulled a Perfect Troll on the Seattle Sounders

Ah, MLS … where owners can get away with trolling an entire fan base.

Tonight Pacific Northwest rivals the Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders face off in a Western Conference semifinal at Jeld-Wen Field. Portland leads 2-1 after the first leg last Saturday in Seattle. That game was played at Century Link Field, which was decked out in full-on NFL gridiron lines. So for all the great atmosphere and 40,000+ chanting fans, there were the unsightly lines all over the field which we might have seen during a 1998 MLS playoff game at Giants Stadium.

Timbers owner Merritt Paulson took to Twitter to tweak Seattle over the unappealing gridiron lines.

Well played, Paulson. Well played.
