Vancouver Whitecaps center back and captain Jay DeMerit (Green Bay/Bay Port) spoke with the media on Saturday for the first time since suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon a week earlier in the team's Major League Soccer opener.

The former U.S. national teamer said he doesn't blame the Whitecaps for the injury – he dealt with Achilles' tendinitis throughout 2012 and in training camp this year, leading some to ask if the team put DeMerit at risk by playing him.

The Vancouver Whitecaps center back and captain had surgery Monday to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon in his left leg, an injury that forced him out of the team's Major League Soccer season opener after just 8 minutes Saturday.

The Numbers Behind the Portland Timbers' Lack of Penalty Kicks

Stumptown Footy at related • 0 views

The Timbers are now close to becoming the fourth team to suffer such a fate, joining Chivas USA in 2011, FC Dallas in 2006, and the 2000 Kansas City Wizards.

That's in spite of numerous occasions in which one was probably deserved.

My personal favorite non-call happened May 26 vs Vancouver Whitecaps.

"It's definitely one of the biggest highlights of my career. It'll mean a lot more once we clinch that playoff spot. The objective this game was to get three points. We knew how important this was and we fought. We battled. We suffered and in the end we came out with what we deserved. Anyone would dream of scoring a goal like that and it's not every day I find myself scoring goals so I was very grateful to be in the right spot at the right time.

The average age of the Vancouver Whitecaps' probable starting lineup on Saturday is 30.3. That's as compared to the Portland Timbers' likely starters' average age of 26.9. In fact, the Timbers have just two players on the entire roster -- Jack Jewsbury and Donovan Ricketts -- who are older than Vancouver's starters' average age.

Portland Timbers Need to Sign a Big Defender This Off Season [Poll]

Stumptown Footy at related • 0 views

Perhaps not as glamorous as a marquee striker or midfielder, as what we've come to expect from MLS teams in the recent years, but I think, if anything, these past two road games have shown that the Portland Timbers desperately need to bring in a marquee, veteran defender to command and lead the back line.
