Portland city councilman channels Richard Sherman in feud with newspaper

USA TODAY Sports

Watch out, suckas, the City of Portland is going Legion of Boom on you.

Portland, Oregon, is officially America's greatest city ... and it has nothing to do with the "Dream of the 90s," or maybe it kind of does. Inspired by Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, commissioner Steve Novick took on the city's newspaper, the Oregonian, with some unfiltered straight talk.

But after watching Richard Sherman's post-NFC championship game explosion the other day, I've decided, the hell with that. Let's have some fun. If the Oregonian wants to trash-talk, let's trash-talk.

Here it comes ...

You want to talk about mediocre? A paper that only delivers four times a week, now that's mediocre. You want to question our commitment to jobs? Seriously? The paper that specializes in firing people - good people like Ryan White and Scott Learn - wants to talk about jobs?

We're the best City Council in the league. And we're not going to be bullied by some sorry Orange County right-wing publisher. We'll be here after you're gone, Mr. N. Christian Anderson III - after the Newhouse family wakes up and realizes that it's economic idiocy to try to foist a Fox News paper on a progressive readership.

And just like Sherman, Novick levels his opponent at the end.

And don't think for a minute that anything you write will have any influence on us at all. Lions don't concern themselves with the opinions of sheep.

COB!

DAAAAYUM! He even signed off with "COB," which we can only assume means "Council of Boom."

We're totally moving to Portland.
