Except on HFNYR, here they have to pay tribute to a team whose legacy is hardly deserving, because OMG New York.

No thanks.

Yep. Hence why I gave up halfway through our playoff push avatars. Arguing, *****ing, complaining, it was ridiculous. People need to lighten up. Not every one gets what they want. We do it to support our team. I despise the "best for business" theme but, I would gladly sport it if that is what the majority of HFNYR wanted.

Spot on post, Ail.

Can we agree on one theme and come up with some creative avatars now (without the complaining)? I would gladly help with the creation except... I suck at photoshop. The Rongos avatars are even out of my league.

Absolutely spot on.

In years past, the artists didn't have to pull teeth to find a theme. If memory serves me correctly, there weren't any polls for avatar themes pre-2010. People would make templates and whichever recieved the most positive response would be put into action.

The fun and unity that ensues from making these avatars has been sucked dry. I don't blame you for not wanting to be involved.

EDIT- Really hope that the mods allow Ail's post to remain in the thread. I think people need to be reminded about the whole point of having matching avatars.

EDIT2- Ail pls issue raspanse 2 me

Haha, this may be too overplayed, but what about if we do a animation of Sather smoking his cigar, Something like this,



and have the "smoke" say something like "nothing can happen."

Regardless, I really like the Sather retirement/cigar and nothing can happen hybrid.

What about a Pokemon battle theme? Like...

"Boyle used wrist shot!" - "...but it missed"

"St. Louis used _____!" - "Nothing happened..."

"Lundqvist used Glove Save!" - "...but it missed"
