POLL: How important to you is beating the hated Timbers?

Because I have more power than I should on this blog, I wanted to pose a bizarre question. To some of you this will seem obvious, perhaps ridiculous, and feel free to disregard if that’s the case.

Here we go…

In the context of the upcoming three-game home stand, would you sacrifice a point in the league standings to ensure a win in the big rivalry game Saturday against Portland? Or would you take the painful loss to the Timbers in order to guarantee wins against Kansas City and Dallas?

Crazy hypothetical, I know. Call it a psychological study.
