I like the "unchained" theme...but not just for Rinaldo. It kinda plays on the fact that they came on so late in the season. So stuff like...

No offensive upside?
:pic of coots scoring:
Couturier unchained.

No Olympics?
:pic of G scoring:
Giroux unchained.


That or something mocking the #askneal fiasco would be hilarious.

My argument against the Rinaldo idea is that half the Flyers fan base doesn't even like Rinaldo.

I wouldn't wear a Rinaldo avatar. I'm not interested in trolling other fanbases and I'm not interested in bearing the brunt of all the counter-trolling about how we glorify a no-skill goon.

I'm hoping for SW so I can have Vader, with the text "You've failed me for the last time."


As he chokes out Gustafsson.

As for the Rinaldo avatar, you know how everyone gives Pens fans crap because they defended Cooke and defend Neal? We are going to be on the receiving end of all that scorn, and we'll be no better than them, if we go through with that idea.

I selected "other." I went with what I suggested earlier this thread.

My vote is for anything other than star wars. SW just seems so boring/unoriginal IMO, no offense. But I'd be on board with whatever thee majority wants.

None taken. The idea stems from a poster calling Jake a stormtrooper (aka can't hit the target) in a GDT and the "Remember when we sucked?" idea could be tied to it with the "A long, long time ago..." with "we sucked." It isn't Star Wars standalone.

Wish I was allowed to vote. But I'd really rather not have the Rinaldo avatars.

I don't really care. I think the Rinaldo thing is funny but I'm not a fan of any if these ideas so I'll probably just sit this year out.

Didn't we do something similar to comeback kids in 2010 and 2011? Turn the switch on or something. I like the star wars one.

Man...I honestly am not sold on any of these. We've had some great avatars in the past, and none of these scream "great" to me.

Any early season quotes we can use?


What about Sielski going at Snider asking about a change in identity for the team, with Snider firing back that the identity is fine?



edit: I don't hate the Comeback Kids option, maybe mix in something with the #Clutchtime thing the team's PR has been running too

Whatever happened to the Photoshop goddess?


Come to think of it, there's a lot of people I remember from when I first joined that don't post here anymore .

Pretty much my thoughts exactly.

I know I'm not exactly helping since I don't have any cool ideas of my own, but I don't think any of those are up to snuff with previous years.

Don't really like any of the ones mentioned, I know Berube themed ideas were bounced around before, maybe we could work off of that
