Something to do with Semi-Pro.

Carolina Hurricanes MegaBowl.

3rd place! 3rd place! 3rd place!

Yea, I'm out of ideas. Too bad Do Meth for Seth was struck down.

A spin on the Meth could be Breaking Bad... The Walking Dead could be cool

A three-frame moving GIF.

First frame with picture of the player and their name.

Second frame with a notable accomplishment/stat of the player on top of their picture.

Third frame: "WOULDN'T CRACK THE LEAFS' LINEUP." In all caps and bold on top of a blank black background.

Don't really like the idea of anything TV related.

Could maybe have nascar themed avatars. E.g. with the player number and some sort of product related to some stereotype about. Like the Alex Semin #28 Rex Cancer Clinic, Jeff Skinner #53 Triangle Dive Team,

I love love love the Garbage Pail Kids idea. Everybody can pick a different player. Or maybe Oscar the Grouch? I'll try and work up something real quick.

I like this best so far in this thread. I'm worried about a potential banhammer going around, though.

Another spin on the garbage idea would be to make it thrift shop themed - use stills from the Macklemore music video, maybe, and emphasize that "another man's trash is another man's (JR's) come up"

Yeah there's a fine line. The B's fans got away with their 911 crap for their cup year, but our anti-Bandwagon avatars were squashed FAST.

On the other hand if we handle things the right way with this, making fun of EVERYONE, it could work.

say:
Frame 1: Eric Staal
Frame 2: stats
Frame 3: overrated, Fleury was the obvious choice at #1

Frame 1: Alexander Semin
Frame 2: stats
Frame 3: total cancer, reason for the Caps failures

Frame 1: Jiri Tlusty
Frame 2: stats
Frame 3: Not good enough to break the Leafs top 9

Frame 1: Justin Faulk
Frame 2: stats, rookie all-star team
Frame 3: overrated, Jon Merrill's clearly the better prospect

Frame 1: Cam Ward
Frame 2: 06 Conn Smythe winner
Frame 3: Total fluke, Oilers deserved that cup

etc.
