2011-2012 Avatar Unity Discussion Thread

Is it about time to start looking at 2011-12 season avatars?

MOD EDIT:
Apparently, the answer to Sprague's question is "yes." And as Matthew pointed out with his link and wooten added based on the timing of the 2008-2009 avatar thread, it's not too soon, and that an early avatar thread = playoff appearance.

Feel free to continue discissing - just know that A Call to Arms is receiving a lot of support. We've got a few visual concepts - keep at it folks.

It would be, but I don't think we have any ideas.

ALSO: I request an avatar draft like the year when dru made those fantastic avatars with the 3 colors per player theme. The best avatar unity movement in board history IMO.

Seriously, if we're going to go for yet another "just for the lulz" theme, it would behoove us to go for one that isn't amusing only to about five or six Jackets fans, dismissed and/or repudiated by the rest, and completely incomprehensible to everyone else on this message board.

Oh, for goodness sakes. Do I have to organize a popular revolution against the NCN now or something? I've already got a bit of a busy summer; I really could have used extra spare time...

Kinda defeats the purpose of avatar UNITY, eh?

On the positive side, it would allow us to emphasize the Civil War aspect even more.

Do you see, NCN? Do you SEE? Even as you attempt to keep us enslaved to your neon green ways, you merely add to the strength of our marketing concept!

While this is a worthy concept that deserves promotion, there's not many ways to do it. Essentially, we'd have everybody with pancake-on-fuzzy-thing's-head avatars, and that would be confusing AWESOME.

I propose "A Call to Arms."

I have no idea what imagery this might involve, but Skraut's vid has me pumped.
