This is a hard question to answer. A former metro is in charge for Portland but that being said doesn't mean I would like to see them win. I'm not even sure I can watch this game for the hurt I have that we lost to ATL. So my vote is wait for next year.

I suppose Atlanta will win, but i guess i'd prefer Portland just so Atlanta won "nothing" this year.

Portland winning has zero meaning to me.  

Atlanta winning just confirms to their supporters that they are the greatest team, fans, stadium, ownership, press coverage in the history of the sport.

Only winning the attendance trophy might do them some good.

We get in to the CCL if Atlanta wins so that's the only benefit for us.  Otherwise I don't really care.

I am rooting for Gio to win.
My wish will have as much effect on the game, as my wish for us to eliminate ATL did.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Portland: My favorite MetroStar in the early years wins the title, especially the way we released him from his Academy Director spot, would be justified. Also, Atlanta gets zero trophies, but will get CCL and we won't.

Atlanta: We get CCL games and an early start to the season, meaning less waiting in the offseason.

I guess, in my book, it's a win either way.

I will root for a bench clearing brawl in which both teams get 8 red cards and the game is suspended forcing us and KC to play for the final.

Atlanta fans need to suffer for a few years at least I figure. So, Forza Portland.

I don't give a shit about former Metros/Red Bulls once they are off the team.

I'm not actively rooting for Atlanta but at least we would make champions league if they win. If they don't the shield had less value this year since it doesn't even get us a spot in champions league.

Some many punks that I dont like on ATL, plus they have a whiny, entitled fan base. Go Timbers.

Atlanta, I want to see the kind of investment Blank has made be rewarded. Obnoxious fans aside, there's no arguing that they are pushing the league forward and in the right direction.

 

CCL would be nice too...

Almost certainly wont be watching. Pulling for Portland I suppose with the understanding that ATL probably will probably win anyway and we'll get CCL.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

I will not be be watching but will be ok with either team winning. Atlanta because it means we'll be in CCL in 2 months. Portland because fuck Atlanta and their fans.

Why not make them play the game in the River Plate stadium and have both teams wear Boca jerseys?

I hate Atlanta, but  I don't know how anyone could possibly not be rooting for us to get into CCL. I think its a huge deal to be in that tournament, and potentially win it.

 

I probably can't stomach to watch the game though. It should be us playing.
