Host Carlos "Los" Molina, Mike "Stats" Donovan, Derek "Homer" Weber and oregonsports.com publisher Cliff "Danger" Pfenning review the sports world, especially local topics like the Blazers, Ducks, Beavers, Timbers, even amateur events that pop up. It's all captured on a podcast and uploaded to oregonsports.com weekly.
So join the crowd, or even visit the cast and get a guest spot on the show, Monday nights at 9 p.m.
On this week's episode, Los, Mike, and Cliff break down the previous week's Timbers action, including their blowout victory over the LA Galaxy, MLS's best team. Then they move from futbol to football and the opening of college football training camps this week. They also recap the Oregon Football Association vs. The Buried Life charity flag football game over the weekend. Finally, they wrap up with a Roofball announcement, and look ahead to the RFA Cup on August 14th. All that, plus the usual segments, including 'What Plucks My Duck' and 'We Wanna Watch.'
Raymond Felton gets a thorough review in this week's episode
In this week’s episode, Los and the gang recap the previous week’s NBA draft, throwing out their favorite moments and predictions for who came away the cream of this year’s draft crop. They also grade the Blazers draft day moves, and wonder aloud if Raymond Felton isn’t just Andre Miller from six years ago.
Once they move on from basketball, it is soccer time in Soccer City, and the consensus says the Portland Timbers need to right the ship. After an embarrassing 4-0 loss over the weekend to Dallas, Mike tries to look on the bright while looking ahead to Kansas City.
All of that, plus the usual segments including What Plucks My Duck and We Wanna Watch, recorded live at Blitz in the Pearl.
EPISODE 13: Time for division drama on/off the field
By Cliff Pfenning, oregonsports.com
After two weeks of interdivision play, the Pacific Football League season returns to division action with a pair of big games in the North, where the Clark County Vipers are set to play at Kitsap County in a battle of unbeatens Saturday.
The Vipers, though, are heading to the game after a 42-7 loss and have an uncertain situation at quarterback, where their two starters will likely be unavailable.
That game will be the focus for tonight's episode of Pacific Football Weekly, recorded live from Blitz Pearl in Northwest Portland.
Co-hosts Cliff Pfenning and Charlie Latt will analyze the league as it heads into its eighth week, and returns to division play with the Southern Division having a key boost in drama with the return of Nate Ellis to Southern Oregon.
Without Ellis, the Renegades lost just 13-10 to the league title favorite Portland Monarchs.

Also, PFL director of officials Kevin Hatfield is scheduled to appear as well.
Co-hosts Cliff Pfenning and Charlie Latt will discuss other PFL highlights and report on league news, including the coaching situation in Eugene, where the Oregon Outlaws are experiencing a coaching change.
