This years ideas are not really inspiring me but Peanuts, Groundhog Day and Titanic are my top 3.
Please, no other teams on our avatars (Pittsburgh). Voted for Wilson unmask as I really want for a change to have a positive message on our playoffs avatars.
Wilson unmasked has to be it. Timely and in the heads of other fans.
If you voted something else remember you can change your vote.
Exit Ramp, Groundhog Day, and Tom Wilson Masks are so ****ing good. Just laughed my ass off in the middle of a meeting at work.
That "you cant lose in the 2nd round" one made me laugh out loud.
I've never seen Peanuts.
Nothing negative about playoff history. I voted Wilson
I know its a beloved classic but to me its just looks boring and the animation is terrible. I did have a stuffed Snoopy though; he had on a scarf.
The only cartoon I watched religiously was Gargoyles. Next years theme maybe?
I don't get the freeway exit or Wilson ones. And the rest are ho hum as well.
The bar is low this year for playoff avatars it seems. Just as well.
Well speaking for the Wilson idea, it refers to people who think TW is nothing but a dumb animal/thug/criminal/plug, and who often obsess on it
I can't decide! Can we take the top 3 and run a final poll to consolidate?
I think wilson truckin' peon gifs would be good.
Ok,but there is no suttle reference to that or any mention of the playoffs. Just the Scooby Do crew and Wilson.
it's a first attempt. might need to reverse the order in that one.
everyone on the main boards will understand a monster being revealed to be Wilson. he's their boogeyman
So for the tom wilson one I have this so far
The first frame I'm still working on the colors and text size but it can be customized with whatever anyone wants to put in there as long as it'll fit
I'd like to add a frame with refs in each gif instead of the random people dressed in blue.
I'm going through and getting any unmasking gifs I think will work with this. Its mainly scooby doo gifs just because they don't use as many colors and it makes it easier to fit multiple frames in a small file size.
Also I haven't added a final frame with the cup logo since I'm not sure if everyone wants that.
I would be fine with this if others are as well.
Pook has had limited time to develop the gifs. I would be fine if the Wilson reveal panel just said "Boo!" But suggestions are welcome.
Sounds great. I think add the final and we need a Caps logo somewhere.
Oh and the first frame isn't definite either. If I can only find good unmasking gifs involving scooby doo I might change it to something closer to old 70s cartoon theme.
Love it. Maybe an olde tyme silent movie panel with the text
A caps logo to otherwise help identify also cool
The same Wilson avatar for everyone will be ok for me. I can't understand where we can find and how we will do so much Wilson themed avatars with no time left seemingly.
SC playoffs frame could be dropped too, I agree. Who cares? Just release Wilson.
If the vote still stands tonight I'll have at least 10 or 11 by the weekend.
Honestly, I think the "groundhog day" and "you can't be eliminated in the 2nd round" theme are best for "playoff" avatars and very fitting for the Caps.
I like the Scooby-Doo/Wilson unmasking avatars a lot and I understand the thought behind it but I don't see how they are really a good choice for playoff avatars.
The voters shall speak however.
Lolol trying to not wake the newborn laughing
If we're doing the unmasking theme then there need to be some Mission Impossible and Game of Thrones gifs as well.
I think that's kind of the point... they have nothing to do with the playoffs, just trolling everyone with Tom Wilson.
If we went strictly based on playoff avatars, I don't think you can beat Groundhog Day. It's too perfect for this franchise.
