While I don't agree 100% with the IMG tags in team names, it shouldn't
be a problem for the stats server, as someone else pointed out.  The
images come from other web servers, and so they don't detract from the
stat server's bandwidth.  Also, since most browsers cache images, the
load time shouldn't be seriously affected either, once you've loaded the
images the first time.

If a team *does* feel the need to put an IMG tag in its team name,
please don't forget the WIDTH/HEIGHT attribute tags.  The stats
listings are in TABLEs, which many popular browsers (esp. Netscape)
refuse to render until the sizes of all the cells are determined.
