our banner text "Home of the Tigers Fans" needs editing. it should be "Home of the Tigers" or "Home of Tiger Fans"

It ought to really be The Home of the Tigers' Fans. It doesn't make sense without the apostrophe after the s. Our team is know as the Tigers, not the Tiger, and the apostrophe after the s signifies that we are fans of the Tigers.

Sham you're right about the apostrophe that is what was missing. Tigers' fans with the double plural feels like a run on or at least a mouthful ....so therefore i suggested the other option...as long as it is grammatically correct it's Ok,

I like the current banner, I really do. But how long can we keep it up there?

True, we have been pilloried by the Australians and it is nice to see Ponting in embarrassed contemplation but after a while it becomes a little shallow, don't you agree? I like to think BC is the most mature fansite out there.

I would rather see a composite montage of all our victories, both in tests and one dayers, that would be relevant for long periods of time.

I have a question for the mods and the other senior members.

The win against Aus was a historic moment. It changed BD cricket "probably" forever. But since that match we have had two pretty bad losses and three straight losses (not that we didnt anticipate that). But the current banner which was hosted right after the Aus match tells a different story. For a few weeks or until the end of Natwest series, this banner is fine. But afterwards I think the banner needs to be changed so that it only reflects the emotions of our players whether ODI or test.

I know that we received stick from everyone about our team and our place in International cricket. The banner is probably a timely answer to all those critics. But now that we have laid rest to that debate, now that teams like Eng and Aus play cautiously against us AND now that BC staffs have started using their real names (becoz of the status of BC), its time the banner should also reflect a sense of responsibility. Right after the Aus match Ponting's face on the banner was fine, it was a deserving banner. I also think that the Ponting's picture is an awesome sight for BD cricket and the way its shown in the banner is almost irresistable. But now that Aus has recovered from that debacle (and recovered well) , we are still a few paces from where we were. We still are not able to put up a good fight regularly. From that perspective I think this banner is not serving our purpose. There may be some other way to put up scenes from our victory. But I think the main banner (which this one is) of BC should be a more general reflection of our teams victory or emotions. WE have so many options (pictures of Golla, Ashraful, Shariar, Mashrafee, Rafiq). Since BC is the main representatve of BD cricket fans and is mentioned regularly in articles, therefore the main banner should reflect our cricket and not a particular match.

I wonder if the mods have plans to modify this banner to a more general one with only our players shown in the banner.

I don't know what others think, but I thought that England had rather very carefree (or don't care?) attitude in our last game?

Absolutely.... We create banners and replace them as events warrant. This too has served its time and will be replaced with something more cogent. Perhaps a collage of the best moments of Bangladesh cricket, or a collage of some historical pictures (in full color sepia)...

We all have our day jobs and sneak in an hour here and there while we tend to the other loves and labor of our lives.

So do cut us a bit of a slack when we aren't able to tend this site as often as we would like to. Sure, the banner may get dated quickly, or the multi-media may not show the latest Ashraful heroics we are all clamoring for, or the front page tour section still says game 7, when game 8 is here and gone.

lets hunt for talents within BC members? Let them design a banner and submit it. The BC staff will then make the submitted banners available for all members to vote and choose only one.
