Does Not Illustrate: Know When To Fold Em get usage counts

Know When to Fold 'Em is a trope about knowing when to quit. The page image is basically a Motivator image of two children playing football. I don't see how that has anything at all to do with the trope.
Special trousers. Very heroic.

If anything the image is the exact opposite of the trope as Chuck never does know when to fold em.

The image would be good on Schmuck Bait that's about it.

It's also JAFAAC as you'd have to be familiar with the football running gag in Peanuts

[up] read the comics on this page gives ya and idea on what it is about, and how it is the exact opposite of the trope. And here

He folded once... and Lucy talked him back into it before mocking him for not giving up.

The picture does not illustrate the trope even if you know the comic because he never folded.

From Gintama, would the second to last panel here with the last panel here and panel 1 and 2 here work well?

Motion to pull.

Does not illustrate the trope. If you're unfamiliar with Peanuts then it's meaningless, and if you are, then it's not an example of this trope in the first place.
Special trousers. Very heroic.

I read three other people earlier in the thread agreeing that this pic isn't working here.
Special trousers. Very heroic.

It's the exact opposite of what we need. Pull.

Add me to the "pull" votes - and pulled, since a lot of people say that it doesn't work.
Some people need more convincing than others.

Good enough; locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
