January 2010 Polls

Greg Oden -- the Trail Blazers #1 draft pick a few years back -- has been out of action more than he's been in action. Now the nude photo flap. With that in mind the Blazers should:

Not let this small thing bother them. Oden is worth his weight in gold and we should do everything to keep him. (35.75% - 326 votes)

Dump him. Fortunately - for the Trail Blazers - picking this guy wasn't quite as bad as picking Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan in the 1984 draft. But it's close. Let's move along. (45.29% - 413 votes)

See if there's an opening on the Blazer Dancers squad. (18.97% - 173 votes)

As we all continue to slog through meetings and discussions and revisions on the proposed I-5 bridge we bet you're thinking....

Mayor Tim Leavitt's idea to build it without charging tolls to Clark County residents will work! (23.06% - 199 votes)

Change our name to Fort Vancouver (35.12% - 210 votes)
