Not bad, not bad. I know nothing about Star Wars so I may need to rewatch a movie or two to think of something.

The Rinaldo idea from the other thread is good, though it is a sensitive issue because what he just did could have been alot worse.

I'm considering breaking my no avatar policy for the playoffs this year. 7.5 years and I've never had one.

That's the point. Feed the fire! I vowed not to change my avatar until the Flyers won a Cup after we lost the avatar bet with the Bruins fans, but I may break the rule for this one.

It ties into the fact that we were awful to start the season.
I'd love a Simmonds as Boba Fett!

Wouldn't he have to be Lando Calrissian (or if you are a pre-quel guy, Mace Windu)?

I think it's worth it.

I'm not a fan of the Star Wars thing (not the movies but the avatar idea). If that's what we go with, I'll just pass I think.

Rinaldo would probably be Boba Fett, with the head hunting and all.

I feel like the Star Wars theme could be good.

My favorite Flyer and favorite Star Wars character, match up for obvious reasons.

We could do Rinaldo Unchained and photoshop his head over Django's. I also like the idea of taking other unstable characters and photoshopping Rinaldo over their head as well. Jack Nicholson from the Shinning, the Joker, the possibilities are endless.

I dont think we can discount the fact that we have the most third period comebacks in our franchises history this year.. in addition to the comeback from being down to a record of 1-7...

I dont know if anyone will like this idea but how about something like:

1st pic - "first two periods" picture of a flyers with stupid expression or being beat
2nd pic: caption:"we got them right where we want them" picture of a flyer (possibly berube acting serious - this picture would be common among all avatars)
3rd pic - caption:"comeback kids" pic of flyers player celly

I have some photoshop experience so i can try to whip one of these up for tonight and mayb you guys can see what you think.

This should allow everyone to have unique ideas and wont be limited to 5-10 designs due to characters (star wars idea...etc.)

another idea would be instead of berube for the middle pic.. we show pitbull from the budweiser commercial - hahah

Can we make a poll for this so we can narrow it down to a few ideas?

My vote is for the Rinaldo idea (someone said something like putting Rinaldo's face on a bunch of different unstable characters) and the Star Wars idea.

If it is one of those, I'm in. If not, I will keep my crying Leighton avatar.

I have no idea how to post gifs from a photo storage site. Obviously.

I also obviously have no idea how to make a continuously playing gif.

My idea was the "Remember when we sucked?" which morphed a bit into the Star Wars idea.

Why are my pictures so small?

Is the zombie theme overdone? I love Mason's mask because he's resurrecting his career in a goalie graveyard.

I don't have any specific ideas, but the team certainly came back from the dead more than once this season.
