Playoff Avatars (Player by Player ones posts #587-591)

That Sheen idea was fun and interesting for the couple weeks that we had them, but they were extremely unlucky seeing as we had about 6 losses during the time period that people hear decided to use them.

SOOOOO with that being said, now that we have actually clinched a spot in the playoffs can we come up with a different set that we can use as a board for the playoffs?

And this time rather than just picking the first good idea we had can we like actually have the board vote on them? Any thoughts or input?

Those Sheen avatars failed miserably.

I still say Mark Wahlberg fighter references are the way to go

Who's winning the Stanley Cup?

I still think something like Wanted posters or Lineup/Mugshots would be a great touch. With a GIF, you can make the followup page of the mugshot or wanted poster read " if you've seen this player, please dial 9-1-1 " or something to that effect.

I like it, Arthur. Especially with the Boston accent, the "Fighter" reference. There might be some repetition of avatars due to the amount of posters here, but there's enough better known players on each playoff team, plus we can also pull up faves from teams out of the playoffs.

It would work really well as a gif. Put "Who's winning the Stanley Cup?" on the player's pic, then it changes to show Mark saying, "Nawt you!" with a spoked B in the space next to his head.

So now the Avatars are not good enough?

They have to do with the team winning/losing?

Now what?

Lol @ superstitions.

These avatars have no effect on the outcomes as games, just like saying "shutout" and playoff beards have no effect.

Something with 911 would be great

Sheen is so over done.

Get out, really? If I grow a beard it won't help Ryder score?

I agree. Sheen was funny for a week... now it's just overplayed.

Nothing will help Ryder score.

Not even the magic of playoff beards and leprechauns.

I agree with this. Something Chara/911 based would be good.

I like the 911 idea. Something clever can be made out of that.

I like the 911 idea, especially if the Bruins end up playing the Habs in the first round.

No one is going to force anyone who doesn't like the avatars to wear them. If you want to keep what you got so be it, no need to bother the other people who want to go with something else because we are in fact "superstitious."

Mugshots could be a good idea.

Might be funny to do an Untouchables reference.

You would think a contract year would help Ryder score, looking at how he is playing he would be lucky to get $2,000,000 per.

I am now 100% convinced that you're a closet Bruins fan. I don't even know how closeted it is anymore.
