    Everton's disappearance came as a total shock, and I'm particularly gutted as he's one of the best of the best as far as JCC mods have *ever* gone.

    I'd like to hear from anyone who has a suggestion for a replacement, PM me and I'll repost in the MS. Remember people, your suggestion would have to cover the right time slot, which is about 8am boardtime to around 2pm board time. Send me a PM, and give me a few reasons why :)

    How come Soccer/Football fans get icons for the World Cup, but we can't have icons for the NBA/NHL finals?

    Before you say that the World Cup is a "World Event", there are teams in both the NBA and NHL that have teams in countries besides the U.S., and many countries are represented by players in both sports. On top of that, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Halloween, St. Patrick's day, and Thanksgiving are all represented by banners and in Halloween's sake special icons. None of those holidays are considered "World Holidays".

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about the World Cup icons, I think it's great that the fans of the sport are getting to use them. I just wish some consideration would be given to fans of other sports that would like the same opportunity to express their support of their teams during the finals.

    Oh, i heartily agree. But from what i understand, by allowing these world cup icons, they are opening the door for more lenience as far as icons of that sort goes, so I would expect to see icons for other major sporting events in the future. Just, you know, it needs to be asked for.

    Heck, maybe someday we can have icons for music festivals and dance competitions... world wide cheerleader competitions! The possibilities are ENDLESS!!!!

    The NHL and NBA are both American sports only, no matter if the players are from other countries or a team or two are from Canada or elsewhere. But we have uploaded icons for that before (LA Lakers icon I remember), but we have to be prepared to do it for other sports like Canadian League and Austrialian rugby and the like. I'm fine with that, but if we get into country specific sports, it's a whole other ball game. I like keeping it to global wide spectator sports for the most part.

    yeah, back when they were good. ;-)

    really sucks about Everton. must be a girl involved. must be. hopefully he'll be back for the WC...

    re: icons -- i understand the mentality of allowing WC icons because it's a global game; there'll be 32 nations involved -- however how many posters from Argentina, Ghana and Spain are there who will be taking advantage of them? point being is that, given the large majority of americans posting at this site, i don't think anyone should really complain if there were some american sport icons uploaded for things like the NBA or NFL playoffs. if i used icons, i would have used a Chicago Bulls icon... at least for the first week of the playoffs, and i don't live anywhere near Illinois.

    if that then means icons for Rugby League and so forth in the finals, so be it. it's only for a short time each year and most region-specific sport discussion is confined to the FF boards anyway.

    As others have pointed out, there have been NBA icons in the past.

    Personally I'm 100% against any non-SW/non-JC icons, and I disagree with having WC icons.
