I think a finals poll with

Burn The Boats/Burn all the Boats
"The last time the Leafs were in the playoffs..."
Embrace your insanity

With examples of each would help.

I'm more in to small animation types like the one i'm using now. The last one we used, I animated the logo on the leafs jersies to pulsate like a heart. Garbs here wanted the C on Sundin's jersey to pulse. But the original ones had the logo on the front pulse like a heart. That's the type of thing I personally like.

I think some of you that are good at avatar making should jump right in and just make a few for us to see.

here's a quick one.



also to give you an idea. here kinda what the old one looked like.

Very well done

That's awesome. How about we do that theme with Hero's theme?

For example:

1. Leafs logo in fire (what you have already)
2.Picture of Kessel photoshopped into Ash Ketchems body
3. SS Anne (boat showed in his post 83)
4. The burn the boats thing. (What you have already)


Adds more variety and endless possibilities. (Different boat, different character, different Leafs player) all while sticking to the theme.

Oohhh how about this.

Having our Leafs as different historical warriors in time, all with the Burn the Boats mantra to tie it all together.

Kessel can be a Ninja.
Lupul can be a Samurai.
Phaneuf can be a Gladiator.
Gunnarsson can be a Viking.
Kulemin can be a Spetsna.
Komorov can be a Pirate.
McClement can be a Spartan.
Bozak can be a Knight.
Reimer can be a Monk.
etc. etc.

edit: someone mentioned Kadri as a Jedi... that's just too perfect.

Playoff Avy Idea: THE FORCE IS STRONG WITH US

Like my Avy
A New Hope (picture of Kadri) he's got the Jedi Mind tricks.
Force is strong with us since were like 1st in hits and fights its a play on the word Force

we could do Carlyle as Yoda teaching the players to Play defense Ect.

i think a Star Wars Playoff Avatar Theme would be Sick and there is plenty to work with

you can merge this i just wanted people to toss this idea in.

It's gotta be burn the boats. We've had since the internet was invented pretty much to sport clever meme avatars, but now we're in the playoffs. We should have the same mindset as the team, we're in this for all the gold or we're dying on the beach trying.

Damn straight. No more feeding into the media trolls about how much we need to hate everything about this team. Burn the damn boats; we're all in this together.

Only criticism I have is that there's too much fire in the Burn the Boats example, and not enough blue and white, if you get what I'm saying? Also, perhaps use the Winter Classic logo instead of the old 3rd jersey one as that isn't one of our official game logos.

I know I'm a *****, but it's the first time in 9 god damn years, I want, nay need, it to be as perfect as possible



Suggestions: change the Burn The Boats picture to a blue background and then print it in similar font to the actual sign in the dressing with perhaps the same stripes on the current 3rd jersey going through the middle of the frame and then Burn the Boats written in there in blue? Idk haha not sure if you'll get what I'm saying, but here's a mini picture of the actual sign in the room. Can't anything better :S




Also, an idea for another frame is to have burning boats in picture and kind of dimmed down but there's a clearly visible Leaf flag somewhere in the frame shining bright, flying high and basically just looking amazing amidst the carnage. Know what I'm saying?
Kinda like this, but with much bright Leaf flag somewhere...




Also, one last crazzzzzy idea, but it's one of my favourites. You have to be an amazing photoshopper, but how about a frame with a closeup of like Phaneuf, and in the visor you can see the reflection of a burning boat? OR with someone like Orr, in his actual eyes you see the reflection? haha idk, what do you guys think?
