It's just the overall approach of having avatars representative of the last 3-4 games that I strongly disapprove of.

I thought the 'feels good man' was nice, but then you realize that people feel good only if the habs have won their last 2 games...

All of this on a message board where people criticize bi-polar journalism...

Chill out bro, it's all fun and games. You're taking this whole thing way too seriously.

I love the OMG WHO THE HELL CARES idea, it gets my vote.

As I said, the beat up habs logo or the chirping grasshoppers, it was satire, none of these were real propositions, more of a tongue in cheek to reflect the board overall depressed mood.

Now, the "who the hell cares" theme is something different. Is it has a carefree tone seldom seen in playoffs avatar world. Not really pessimist nor optimist, it might be just what the doctor ordered for us.

That's a good point. Original and a little provocative. My original comment was more about the general direction the thread was headed, with negativism all over. But you have a good point there.

The only downside is, if the habs go on a magical run and reach, say, the ECF... everybody in a 100 miles radius from Montreal will actually care!

But then again, 'Feels good man' will look funny if we're down 0-3 against the Leafs.

So yeah, 'who the hell cares' might be the thing! Anyway, we're probably putting waaayy too much thought into that, myself included, of course!

That's the point.

At the end of the day, who the hell cares ?

If we were going to come to a logical and united conclusion, we would have weeks ago.

I say we let you and the other photoshoppers vote, and get it done. Or just pick a theme and go with it. Some will complain, most won't.

I feel like we need an official thread, with all the options in the OP with an example of each one, a poll, and NO MORE suggestions.

Same. As usual, JF's ideas end up being my favourites for these things.

Once Yep gets his modifications up (and if no one else plans to do anything) someone should get a poll up if a mod isn't available.

Don't forget to include examples!

Still think that 'Feels good, man' with the Legends is the best, even with this crappy turnaround/end of season.

Come on, examples? Can't people use their imagination anymore?

How 'bout a taste test? Pepsi Challenge? Bake-off?

FFS, there's enough material here for people to make up their mind. Don't ask the Shooping Squad to come up with extra work that'll be judged by clueless idio... err, knowledgeable Habs supporters with a keen eye for talent, creativity and wit

Dog got hit by a car 10 days, lying on the pavement, crushed legs, broken ribcage, eyes popped out of their socket, barely breathing, and this board can't decide if he should be put out of his misery. "Maybe we should just neuter him?"
