Avatars?

I thought I saw a thread for avatars last year, but I was curious if anyone had a thread with a bunch of Coyotes avatars? I think it's time I put one up!

I can whip up a set if someone has an idea for a theme. I reserve the right to play the "Sorry, I don't have time for this" card if it's a dumb theme.

I'm not very creative, I just want a Coyote avatar.

Being the angry, vindictive person of which Fugu accused me., how about a "Do not go gentle into that good night. (Dylan Thomas) theme

IF we are going to do playoff avatars then lets do a troll theme for the whiteout using trollface.

Why not? We see fans from other teams use trollface in some way in their avatars.

"Trolling the playoffs"

Or maybe we can create avatars with some sort of meme message that states any of the team or individual predictions over the last 3 seasons and show how often those predictions were wrong.

We were expected in 09-10 to finish 15th in the west but finished 4th in the West.
Detroit was expected to sweep us in 4 games that same playoff year but we took'em to 7 games.

They say Bryz couldn't be replaced, Mike Smith has done the job.
They say Shane Doan will never get a hat trick, looks like he did.

Nobody predicted us to make the playoffs this year after losing Bryz, but if we make it, that would prove them wrong. I feel that would be the biggest one most relevant to right now.

I loathe the "troll" idea or anything to do with that crowd. Ottawa is already doing that with there "LOL U MAD?" "I AINT EVEN MAD" stuff. Last year it was Vancouver with their "Deal with its".

I'm sure something will develop naturally as time goes by, just like the previous years. Generally, the simpler it is the better. Less people refusing to go along, or make a fuss about it. Just some simple to show the bit of unity. I'll keep brain storming.

The Meta Unjinx by Jinxing

This franchise is so cursed that the only way to counteract it is to do things that would normally give terrible luck. So my proposal is avatars of each player holding the cup. 16 shutouts for Smith. Doan getting a natural double hat trick. Some billionaire buying the team and spending to the cap.

To let the hockey gods know all the sass and charm they will miss if the team leaves.

Edit: Or like from that other thread, we go all Harry Potter. Because I love Harry Potter, I'm sorry.

If, if, IF, we get an owner before the playoffs start, and we are in the playoffs. I don't know how possible it would be, but I was thinking of a past, present, future.

Past meaning the people that drug this franchise into the ground. The present, as in Tipp and GMDM, along side the NHL(as the owner presence), followed by the Future(Tipp, GMDM, and whoever is the majority stakeholder as owner).

Or maybe we could make some about the past being Bryz and failing in around 1, then the present with Smith getting us to the playoffs and getting past round 1.

Just brianstorming.

Looks like those avatars have served their purpose. We can do the same for the amont of trolling we have received over the years.

can do something around all the potential new owners/locations we're supposed to end up at. Someone with a Le Pepsi coliseum avatar, someone with the Thomas & Mack Center, someone with Copps arena, someone with the Sprint Center, someone with Kiel Arena, someone with US Airways, someone with MTS center... and any other far out place that couldn't possibly house an NHL team. I dont know..

If y'all want to go with the trollface thing, you'll have to find someone else to make them. I find the whole thing pretty insipid.

What about something to play up the "small market" aspect? A series of things like:

Phoenix is such a small market...
How small is it?
It's so small that our zambonis are pulled by horses.

Phoenix is such a small market...
How small is it?
It's so small that our ice girls all wear glasses.

Phoenix is such a small market...
How small is it?
It's so small that we have to use pre-owned ice.

Phoenix is such a small market...
How small is it?
It's so small that we have to get our cortisone shots from Mexico.

And so on.

I kinda like the jinx idea only it doesn't have to be strictly related to hockey. We could do things like a black cat walking in front of a Coyotes player (playing on that cross a black cats path superstition/jinx) and stuff like that.

Not interested in doing any meme based themes.

The forever alone face would be more appropriate. Nobody wants us.

I don't like the idea of using a meme for the avatars though.

Worst case scenario, we update the homeless avatars from last year.

just throwing a hat in here...

keeping with the trolling idea, how about a bunch of avatars sporting different pics of the Vrbata shootout move with "Bazinga" underneath. Vrby even looks a bit like Sheldon Cooper. I think I may make one of these for myself anyway.

Another option is one I had suggested last year I think. Coyotes greatest hits:

Doan Stop Believing
Vrbat Out of Hell
Whitney With Your Best Shot
Yandle In the Wind

etc.

It was real easy to find pics while making my own so it didn't take long to whip these up. Take em if you want em.
