So I gotta ask... how did the meme start that is board icons being tanks and panthers and players and tanks and some combination thereof?

It refers to our annual season-tanking abilities.

Tanks are also cooler than paper bags, which was the previous meme.

I think it started last preseason and feeling that it was inevitable that we were getting a top 5 pick this yr. I said I was waiting until after the draft to change my avatar.

We really need to get some ideas for next season's avatar meme going now I suppose, right?

I think something a long the lines of a soviet tank fail meme would go perfectly with the new marketing ploy.

Well I guess it'll depend on what we do throughout the offseason but hopefully we have a better avatar plan for next season and there's some actual hope. The return to the red should be a positive thing, like we're returning to our roots.

Makes total sense now.

I kinda like the red eyes on the top banner on the home page. I bet we could work something coolish with that graphic (although I can only find it embedded in a Flash movie, so it would take some voodoo go get it).

I'm waiting to see who we draft and pick up in free-agency before I get rid of the panther on the golf course.

lol'd. I really like that one, and now that I understand the theme, it totally fits the theme as well.

I have an old animated gif I think somewhere with the panther eyes but its glowing green I believe. Too bad cause that would be kinda good if it was red.

I'm starting to think of ideas now though for something related to the return of the red jerseys. For whatever reason, my brain keeps thinking about the video game, Red Dead Redemption and maybe doing something with that (dunno).

^^^ That's actually a pretty sweet idea. We just need to find a way to incorporate the Panthers into this.

How about something to do with the Staples EASY button if they end up being one of our sponsors. I know some of you have mentioned Target as a possible sponsor as well (keeping with the red theme as well). Some tank avatars later in the season to do with one of our sponsors if things nosedive quickly.

If you are going to use the Red Dead Redemption cover, I think you should try Tallon's head on him and cover the warning label with the leaping Panther logo.

I think that would be a good looking avatar.

If you want to expand the meme, you can swap out different players/coaches faces and maybe a different pithy slogan for each one under the word "redemption".

Those sound so great that I almost want to save those for when we're good. what about a play on that aids (red) campaign from a while back

abhor(red), Endu(red), Ado(red), Reti(red), Ir(red)deemable, Backfi(red), Belabou(red), Bor(ed), Clatter(red), Embitte(red), Inc(red)ible. and many more here

Glad everyone is liking the idea. I REALLY like the idea of Tallon's head on there!

Also I was planning to change where it says "DEAD" to "PANTHERS" so it says RED PANTHERS REDEMPTION. Then adding those pithy slogans under that should look pretty sweet. I'm gonna try and find the font to do that and see if I can start working on it.

Also for Gern's benefit on the old tank meme, you may also see some confetti in a lot of our avatars or mentions to confetti. Thats a reference to the previous season where on the last game our fantastic (sarcasm intended) President Michael Yormark (or as we often refer to him Yorkman due to Tallon mistakingly saying his name wrong when introduced) decided that to celebrate a losing season on the last home game to throw confetti and no one (players included) thought that was a good idea.

But I've gotten so used to my avatar...it's like a security blanket. Reminds me that the tank is never too far behind...
