What an awesome idea

i just pictured your idea in my head, see if I can whip something up.

I personally would for vote embrace the insanity...that defines our fanbase to a tee. I mean it's us, we are crazy about our boys be it without the playoffs or with the playoffs.

That's tricky, because it's subtle so sort of hard to see... unless someone could make the flames into a moving .gif

This was what I got with stationary flames

I mean it's like You hate us before? What about now ?
I think you would have to make their visor go from normal to black or something. daft punk style and there you would see the boats burning.

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.
I like it but only the bolded historical warriors, as they are more likely to travel in boats (and burn them ofcourse)

True. So many great ideas here. We can't do more than one theme?

The only thing about the flames reflected in the visor idea is that it would probably be too small to be noticeable when reduced to avatar size.

Ya it's a good idea, but it'll be barely noticeable. There will also be 20ish dif possibilities, we have the biggest fan base on here, definitely more than 20.

I say we stick with what LeeIs made. Looks awesome, lots of possibilities.

I am liking the idea of AVs with the logo of whatever team we play at the time on fire.

I wish we had more size and room, could get some killer apps.

Are we going with everyone having the same Av, or different versions of the same idea?

Has to be different. Would be weird if we all had the same one, which is why I like the one that LeeIs made/Hero's idea

here's a quick one i made. what do you guys think of something like this for the burn the boats idea? i'm really not good at this frame by frame telling story type of avatar. 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.

Loving this one. Well done LeeIs.

Yup, this

Burn the Boats is our motto! Lets use that, ANY team could use "last time we were in the playoffs".

Well I think based on previous "burn the boats" threads, there's a strong possibility many casual lurkers don't really know what it meant hence voted for another option

Yup very true, "last time we were in the playoffs" is just too cheesy and doesn't really relate directly to our team. Maybe if we could find pictures of our players at that age, but it's near impossible.

BURN THE BOATS! None of that other stuff! (the insanity idea is pretty cool)
Burn the boats is something only the leafs have, our new motto going into the year that got us into the playoffs. Stick with it! VOTE BURN THE BOATS!!!!!

Burn the Boats!

Forget about the past (last time the leafs were in the playoffs).

This is a new CBA and a new era

My thoughts exactly. "last time we were in the playoffs" seems too much like a comedy piece... We're trying to redefine how other teams view us, not provide them with memories of how long its been since our last playoff berth. This just seems like an opening for all the trolls to take advantage of. The leafs are trying to gain respect, not poke fun of the lack of respect received in past years.

So BURN THE MOTHER ****ING BOATS!
