Theme Avatars (Looking for GIFmakers)

1) You know you want to
2) You know they probably won't make it
3) Av bets increase the legions and make this time of year more personal
4) Jinxes don't exist
5) There are some really talented peeps here
6) There are some really funny peeps here
7) Everybody's looking for something bigger than themselves
8) Marcus Foligno Theme
9) Lowlights of the year, "LOL we made the playoffs"
10) It's a hockey message board, stop being serious

Jinx! Horrible idea! Terrible! How dare you have fun!

I will still not be participating because of my crippling voodoo fears, but man this board always gets fun when this happens.

Fishing for cucumbers is it?

Maybe I'll bring out my Ash Kaleta avy for old times sake if I can find it.

Not sure if this is a good idea or not...I think there's some sum bich' runnin' around on our forum with a "flyers mass murder" avatar...

You should at least have an expiraton date or something on the avatars.

As long as sba can keep his throwback one I'm fine with it. That's the inky avatar that matters. And since he has gone back to "not ridiculous, rich" we have been a winning team.

All avatars should be turned upside down as rally caps.

God, if someone could edit that to Miller-Lucic, and make it clear it's pro-sabres....

I actually just found it and made it my avatar now to get a reaction.
fing0rz is the guy you're thinking of; he's had it for a year now.

I propose a theme of "WE HATE THESE GUYS" or "THIS TEAM HATES US."

Order of Pic>Title Text>Theme Text


Individual players:

- Foligno, "THE GRETZKY"

- Hecht, "THE MORAL SUPPORT"

- Ennis, "THE #1 STUNNA"

- Leino, "THE PLAYOFF HERO"

- Roy, "THE SELFISH GENE"

- Stafford, "THE CONTRACT YEAR WONDER"

- Boyes, "THE HAS-BEEN"

- Hodgson, "THE DADDY'S BOY"

- Vanek, "THE SELF-LOATHING STAR"

- Gerbe, "THE MIDGET"

- Pominville "THE CAP"

- McCormick "THE LOCKER ROOM ALL-STAR"

- Kaleta "THE DIRTIEST PLAYER IN THE NHL"

- Tropp "THE WHO"

- Kassian "THE SCRUB"


- Ehrhoff "THE ALBATROSS CONTRACT"

- Sekera "THE BEST YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF"

- Sulzer "THE CASTOFF"

- Leo "THE ONE-DIMENSIONAL MAN"

- Myers, "THE REGRESSOR"

- Weber, "THE SKATING SCRATCH"

- Regehr, "THE SLOW-ASS VET"

- Grags "THE DEARLY DEPARTED"


- Miller "THE TOP 10"

- Enroth "THE SPOT STARTER"


- Ruff "THE JACK ADAMS WINNER"

- Regier "THE OVERSPENDER"

- Pegula "THE AL DAVIS"



Alternatives:

- shots of season lowlights (miller/lucic, gragnani pass, 7-2 loss scoreboard, etc) with the text "THERE ARE WORSE TEAMS THAN US?"

- Miller getting clobbered with the text "WHAT'S THE MAIN COURSE WITHOUT A LITTLE WHINE"

All sabre jerseys with current player numbers, but all having Lucic as the name on the back.

I want a Lucic 30 or a Lucic 36? 28 doesn't count anymore unfortunately

Please no. I don't think I can stand looking at Lurch sweaters for the rest of the season. How about something happier, like unicorns or lollipops?

I'll buy in. Maybe a Vanek grimace after he scores a goal.

I used to like Themed Avatars ... but then I took an arrow in the knee.

...


That said, if we had "Arrow in the knee" avatars, I'd be down for that.

I'm all for, "LOL, we're in the playoff race?" Theme.

If we make the playoffs, that changes to "LOL, we made the playoffs"....

Every round we pass we change the AVs..... "LOL, we made it to the second round"..... "LOL, we made it to the conference finals" ......

Unfortunately, we just will have the first theme, "LOL, we're in the playoff race".....

Themed Lucic avatars?

Pull yourselves together. Absurdity is great and all, but come on. Don't do it just for the sheer amount of joy it'll give Boston fans for that sort of validation, never mind forcing the rest of us to look at them.

I like this idea, very original. That way everyone actually gets to keep their avatars as well.
