Timmy is obviously yesterday's news... Any suggestions?

I'm sure this one will be a highly focused, serious discussion. :rolleyes:

It should be something that makes people want to change/customize their avatar immediately.  This comes to mind...

I would suggest Tim Murray, but given his popularity on this board everyone would change.

Regier, Leino, Gary Bettman, Brett Hull, the nose of either Lucic or Marchand, or a Bruins logo.

Just make it a Sabres sweater with a "C" on it.  Those are changed constantly.

Do we want it to be current, or simply much more recent than Timmy?  If the latter, I'd imagine I won't be the only person to nominate Leino or Regier.  If it has to be somebody currently with the team, I'm going with the much-hated Drew Stafford.

Since some people never change them, I'd rather have something that doesn't annoy me every time I have to look at it.

Righto.  The people who plan to stick around tend to change their avatar pretty early after joining.  The 1 & 2 post posters will never change it anyway.


I guess though you can make it a Bills logo so all the TBD posters feel more welcome to stop by.  :)

i think going with leino is appropriate. using timmay was a good call. leino is the heir to that throne (of lies).

the photoshop work above of GM TM and the godfather is outstanding. that can't be the default avatar because, as someone else noted, everyone would want it.

Remember when nfreeman lost the election bet and I made him use Obama holding the Cup as his avatar? The other half of the bet is that he would have to moderate the board for one year.
