Like first pic of a player being 'down' or lazy or disinterested or disappointed or just failing. Perhaps that with a piece of text something like "Regular season" for each of the avatars and then something 'unique' like "More like pre-season" in every avy.
Then the other pic with the same guy with alot more positive picture like him having alot of fun or succeeding at something or just being positive. That with the text of "Playoffs 2011" and then the 'unique' text: "Now we're talking" for example, with Flyers logo of course.
An example: Danny Carcillo
"More like pre-season"
"Now we're talking"
Also if the pictures just get too much stuff into it, just cut the text part down to one word.
I love the 60 minutes idea, but the switch is even better. The only problem I see is how we'll give everybody seperate avys. With the suggestion above we could only use one per player.
Sure everyone could choose player or a group of personnel (like HBL line) or just an object or an occasion (Richards and Pronger with mad stares at each other, then them having a hug) as his/her avy. Same person could be used in many avatars of course, there are plenty of pictures over the internet for everyone to choose. The pictures and the text make then unique, not the player of choice.
If someone needs another photo of Laviolette. This is from the 2010 playoffs, one of the post-game press conferences, around the time of the famous Coke Machine Incident.
Maybe Jules or someone can alter it where needed.
I really do appreciate having my photos shared, it's nice to see others enjoying my work. However I prefer if you just link to the original file and give me a photo credit. Actually, I know most photographers would appreciate a photo credit. Thanks.
