I agree that nobody will make the Aretha Franklin "Respect" connection but I don't think it matters...they're nice, clean, uniform looking avatars. I think some of our playoff avatars from past years have been a bit over the top, this one's a nice change of pace. Plus they're pretty easy for users to customize themselves, instead of loading all the work onto the handful of really skilled Photoshoppers around here.

Besides, we (myself included) seem to be having a tough time coming up with any really good ideas this year and we're pretty much running out of time to pick one before the games start...

Then it looks like you're just forcing the joke down peoples' throats imo. Honestly, i don't see there being a large enough demographic of people on hf who either remember that album cover or are younger and listen to that type of music so as to recognize the cover. It's a interesting idea, but I don't see there being much payoff in the joke.

That's true.
Then hototogisu is right. Who cares if people don't make the connection, as long as we know. The idea gets across anyway.

Aretha franklin? Can't leave out our girl Barbara Streisand.

I'm actually pretty lost -- so all we need is an image with the text "respect' ?

What does history has no respect mean?

Unless I'm not getting it, this idea is .... weak.

well the way I understand it, first frame should be a Habs that did something viewed as disrespectful, and the second frame should represent the franchise's history...no?

Good idea but I think the second frame should be habs related, all the funny unrespectful stuff first fram, and second frame the rocket's bloody face or something like that... just my opinion...

Frames should be slower that's for sure. I think ima puke with the speed theyre at. They definitely need writing.

Maybe something like that:

1st frame: Actual player(s) doign something disrespectful Text: Respect
2nd frame: A legend player winning the cup Text: History
3rd frame: List of Stanley Cup won

It's not that funny but it could be very classy and... respectful

I like this idea. Rodney Dangerfield was the man.

It was the same 3 years ago... we had 3 themes: Stamps, Win City and Vintage random things.

Here's my take on the first frame, for the second I will ty something tonight... lunch time is over.

I got em in 125x125 and 150x150. Trying to make a filter to get all the photos to look a little vintage. The typography is about as small as it can get in the 125 version.

Let me know what you think.

As for the Aretha Franklin reference... Wait until I get to the other frame I think I will make it a three frame this time.

One for Aretha that will be static for all avatars

One of player X with the album cover

One that refers to the playoff drive, the 25th cup and the team.

I think it should work.

After a look at what it looks like on the grey background, I think I will make it a little less yellow.
