    World Cup Avatar Challenges

    So this was somewhat of a success in the Ashes forum, so I thought it would be fun if we did it in here. Obviously there's some time to go yet, but as there are ten sides in the WC, as opposed to two in the Ashes, it could be a very interesting thread.

    And just to get things going, I'll make my own outrageous offer (see my avatar/signature to see how my last bets went!):

    If England do not reach the semis, I will have my avatar showing ANYTHING, to be chosen by the first Australian to respond to this thread

    Generous offer if you ask me.

    Haha, *responds*.

    I'm also prepared to extend my Flintoff - McGrath wager with Brumby although it may need tweaking seeing as McGrath may play many more games than Freddie.

    Also if an Australian is not the leading run scorer for the Cup, I'll put whoever is, in my avatar for a month after all other challenges are met.
    Rest In Peace Craigos

    LOL. Well you have plenty of time to decide. Dissection of my posts will probably tell you who I do and don't like, knowing you I'm sure it will be something spectacular!

    If Australia win the cup then my avatar will not change but if another country wins then I will put an image as my avatar to make me look as if im the biggest idiot around (open to suggestions) and claim that also in my sig. This will last for a minumum of 1 month.

    The zebra stripes in my avatar will change to the colours of the team that wins the World Cup, provided it is not Australia.

    If Australia DON'T win the world cup final, i will put a picture of the Australian logo/flag in my avatar.
    If the leading wicket taker isn't Australian, i'll put the top Australian wicket taker in my avatar.

    Tell you what, I bet Fred score more runs than Pidge in the WC. Deal?

    Willing to change my avatar to the Liverpool badge for 2 months if the West Indies do not make the semis. Also, if England make it to the semis I'll change my avatar to Geraint Jones for a month.

    If Kevin Pietersen scores more runs than Michael Clarke i'll have any chosen Avatar and a Barmy Army Song or God Save the Queen extract in my signature for that same month, both of which will be chosen by the 1st englishman to respond to this post. However, if Clarke scores more, i get to choose their avatar etc.

    note. Should either player get injured, and for this reason are forced to miss matches, the deal is off.

    If Nathan Bracken takes more Wickets than Brett Lee i'll have any chosen Bracken picture in my avatar for a month (should i lose the above bet, it will be after that avatar)

    How about "Michael Vaughan's... Barmy Army"? That's their most famous, er, song.

    As for avatars, how about the text KP > Pup?

    If Clapo loses his avatar challenge, I'll put him on my ignore list.
