    Is this even possible for the sports nuts here, Brett? Or is it a licensing hassle? Would you have to pay the NBA for little team icons?

    Just a thought...

    I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure licensing wouldn't be an issue as Sarge has not just the NBA, but all the major sports leagues team icons at the Army.

    Somehow though I kind of have a feeling that Brett probably won't want to do this. But who knows ... I could be wrong. [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]
    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR

    I never quite saw the point of that. This is a Van Halen site, where in one forum we may discuss sports, but doesn't quite make sense in the long run to create avatars for sports teams. There are copyright issues of course, but that's not a big concern. We are a small fish in a big pond.

    I can see how it would be nice to represent your favorite team, but the bottom line to me is that it would take an awfully long time to create icons for all the teams in several major sports. Not really worth it in the long run. And I agree with Brett, it's a VH site and it would be strange to have non-VH avatars. Next thing you know, people would want icons of other bands, their favorite animals, blah blah blah.

    Plus I think if someone really wanted to include their favourite team's logo in their posts, they could just post a link to it in their signature:
