The Whipsaw carries  on a long tradition of Timbers supporters fanzines which began in the late 1970’s with the Timber Topics published by the Timberrrs Booster Club, carried into the USL era by the immortal Axe to the Head. The first issue of the Whipsaw rolled off the presses before the start of the Timbers 2010 season, and continues to be published on a loosely quarterly schedule. Circulation currently hovers at around 2000.

The is a traditional fanzine featuring everything from Timbers player  interviews, to road trip stories, tifo, fan poetry, antifacist news, and highlights on supporter culture, and Timbers Army events. The Whipsaw is always interested in contributors. Email stories, art, story ideas etc to whipsaw(AT)timbersarmy(DOT)org for consideration for future issues.
