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 ?

Default Re: The Avatar Bet, Inspired by HowBoutThemCowboys

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.

Do whatever you want, the only thing at stake is your pride and manhood.

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.

I'll just get ya next year

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.
