A choking theme could work imo.

How 'bout:

DON'T CHOKE

Playoff Avatars

Not sure who made this gif but it's awesome. I love it.

We should all unite and use it.

i'll give it a whirl if anyone has images and/or text in particular they want. What I lack in creativity I can make up for in software to animate and/or combine

I am not doing any playoff avatar. It's nothing but bad luck.

brs03 was kind enough to make me my current avatar. It holds no special meaning in regards to the playoffs, it just makes me laugh every time I see it.

In regards to playoff avatars, why not? I believe this will be my 3rd playoffs lurking on this site and we didn't have playoff avatars and the team had limited success. Whether it will give the Boys that added push over the hump towards obtaining the Cup, I think it would be fun. Something like playoff beards for the Players, something to bring us together in support of the Boys during the most exciting playoffs in professional sports.

How about something to do with low expectations? Like instead of hoping to win a playoff game we hope to score a goal?

Let's just get it over with and have someone photograph themselves eating out of a Haagen-Dazs tub grasping a giant spoon with a pair of hockey gloves.

Any avatars related to playoff choking or getting bounced in the first round are going to really suck when the Caps choke in the playoffs and get bounced in the first round.

All I ask is that whatever you guys decide on, picture yourself logging in after the Caps lose a game 7 at home in the first round, and how you'd feel seeing that avatar next to your name. I know our stupid minimalist ones about not playing the right way made me feel even worse last year.

Everyone has the same avatar:




Or whoever the guy who made this avatar makes a bunch for different team members and then people choose which ones they want to use.

Why take something like this so seriously? Why can't this be something fun and that be it? Forget bad luck and getting bounced in the 1st round. Lets all together think of a theme that is funny and run with it. How about a Rodney Dangerfield theme, or better yet, Sam Kinison? Something like that.

I made it in Paint Shop Pro 4 (I party like it's 1996), and animated it with some ULead Gif program.

If anyone wants to use it, feel free to.* I could make more custom ones with Bruce where he says/does different things if anyone wanted something in particular. I could also do players but it may take longer since I haven't drawn them yet.

The only real constraint is that the animation can't be too extensive, since you're limited to 20kb and the LZW compression that GIF files use isn't really great for animation.

*I take no responsibility for any playoff failures, potential, realized or actual. I do take credit for any and all playoff success, with success defined individually.

Hahah well shoot man this one was awesome and if you want to make more I can see people catching on to them. I like the Bruce one a lot, but you should make an Arnott one, for me.


Does anyone else like this idea?

My two cents, great art work, but maybe too much drawing involved?? I have little artistic skills. What is the theme.

avatar size constraints make it a little challenging imo but I'm not someone who does this kind of thing on a regular basis so...

Made the one I'm using just a little while ago, had to reduce the res a little to fit the 49k requirement. I'll make others, just gimme a theme and some reference pics/text

I hope something like this is what you were looking for:



I got a little lazy during the animation. I'll try to do Arnott over the weekend.
