Week Two the Lions Face off vs your Texans

Anyone want to wager regular season avatars on it?


I bet you my avatar the Lions win that Game. Any takers?

I will take that action provided that we're talking about a change of avatar's for the week following the game and not the entire season. I'd get sick of it long before the end of the season if I lost (but I don't think I need to worry about that one, I've got some confidence in my guys).

Avatar change for one week? If so count me in.

same here Herv. I'll take it for a week. Feel free to browse our avatars and find the Texans one that you like best, Ihategeeks.

No shy stuff, the entire Regular Season.

Isn't anyone confident enough to make this bet ?

It's not a question of confidence IHG. It's a question of simply not wanting to get locked into a Lion avatar for an entire season. What happens the following week or a month later when someone wants to throw that bet out again over Titans avatars or Colts avatars? What if I want to take that bet but I'm already locked into a Lion avatar for the rest of the year. It's one game in a long season and winning it (or losing it) isn't going to make or break the year.

I'll wear your Lion for a week if you win and only ask you to wear my Bull for a week if you lose. After that I'm on to division opponents. Out of 16 games the Lions only get my attention for one week. After that they won't be on my radar again unless we're playing in the Super Bowl and they're on the opposite side (A sweet mental picture if I do say so myself)

That's plenty fair enough. Believe me I don't relish the idea of having to wear that blue blob you call a Lion for an hour, much less a week. Thing is I know I won't have to. You're going to enjoy the pride that comes with wearing the Bull though.

Sorry, but it's the season or nothing at all for me. If you don't believe in your team enough to take a bigger risk. I don't want hear about it.

Where are the real Texans fans? :boxing:

Can I have you avitar if you lose? We can't lose a good one like that.

Pretty easy there IHG's. You lose you don't come back to the board. If we lose we are forced to have a Lion's icon on a TEXANS MG. Hardly seems like an even bet.

Oh almost forgot to mention. Harrington is a self-proclaimed geek. I saw an interview with him where teammates were making fun of him for it.

I agree with Ogre. If IHG loses he will never be seen again.

Read the post by The Ogre...he mentions the LIONs avatar. So I think there was miscommunication that you did not clarify...

Orge was not involved in the bet was he?

Orge didn't make the bet did he?

Orge can say what ever he wants

And you can go flame someone else partnah'

You can keep your pride, and your manhood (in that order : P) and your avatars
If you wish, there seems to be confusion about the stipulations anyway.

At the time you placed this post on the board your avatar was not the one you are currently using. It's clear that the people who bet with you signed up for a Lions avatar and not your current, rather tasteless one. If you want to hold them to the bet then the avatar that you were using should be sufficient. Trying to make them use this one you whipped up is a classless act.

And of course letting them out of the bet is a generous offer.

Your doing yourself a favor by wearing such an attractive avatar, you'll have to beat the girls away with switches.

And by the way Ihategeeks, I didn't take the bet but I have decided that since my Texans have completely failed to play up to their potential I will wear the avatar of the Lions until such time as the Texans redeem themselves. I'm sporting "Lions" until they win two games in a row or they finish the season at .500 or better (This could go on a very long time). Not what you wanted I know but I didn't see an icon of the classic Saints paper bag (though the way they're playing this season maybe I might need to make one up.)

The bar under the page banner has a link called "USER CP"

in there is a section for avatars
It's on page 2 of the team avatars (I think)
