    TLW Deathpool 2021

    PLEASE READ THE PART ABOUT PM’ING THE PICKS TO ME. IF THEY ARE NOT SENT BY PM I WONT INCLUDE THEM IN THE SPREADSHEET. I will not open the PM until my list is posted. If you haven’t played before please get involved. Rules listed below. 1. Each contestant much pick 10 celebrities who they think will die between 00:01, 1st February 2020 and 23:59 31st December 2020. Lists are final as of the starting time. New Rule - I will accept late entries, perhaps someone finds this thread half way through the year and would like to enter, however if someone dies within 1 week you won't get the points for it. 2. When the death has been confirmed, points will be awarded, and the people who had them chosen may choose a new celebrity for their list. 3. A celebrity is defined as a person who lives their life in the public domain. If we have not heard of them, then we can reject them. A good rule of thumb is if they have a Wikipedia page that you didn't just make. 4. Death row prisoners and people in public 'right to die' cases are not permitted. 5. Your picks can be any age at all. No minimum or maximum for the categories, but points will be awarded like this: 50+ - 10 points 35-49 - 20 points -35 - 30 points 6. You will get fewer points if it is one of your replacements which dies. This is because the new pick may be based on more recent news, so is not 'as skilled' as an original pick. This will also help level the playing field and reduce the chances of The Woolster running away with things. New scoring as follows. 50+ - 9 points 35-49 - 15 points -35 - 20 points Please PM me your lists, and I will begin the spreadsheet. Even if you want your list carried over from last year, please PM me to let me know so that I can 1. confirm your list, and 2. keep track in one place who has entered. This stops people copying your lists. Once the game begins, I will post the lists here. When you're sending your lists in, please put in the categories of your entrants in order like this... 1. John 50+ 2. Mike 50+ 3. Steve 50+ 4. Sam 50+ 5. Arnold 50+ 6. Peter 50+ 7. David 35-49 8. Liam 35-49 9. Tom U35 10. Paul U35 Please don't use nicknames! Happy Celeb Deaths 2021

    Boxing 2021

    Just watched it and avoided the result. Porter is one of my favourite fighters in recent times, love his heart, love the interactions in the corner with his dad, and he seems like the most decent, respectful man in boxing. He's really really good fighter, just not quite great. I had it 3-3 after 6, but had Crawford winning the next 3. Stopped early, but don't think there was any chance of him winning after the 2 knockdowns, don't think not helped that he got so angry after the 2nd one.

    Fantasy Manager Comp

    Sounds ace! Great work Bruce, sounds more time consuming than some of the laborious crap I've done on here! (would like to get the Bang the Drum thread going again, just don't know if I have the time!) I'm not on the forum much, I might need a poke when it gets going or its my turn to pick

    Never played footy manager, what do I need to do? I mean, I'll be in whatever the answer is, but would be good to know!

    Err, soz, seems like I've not been on the thread since April... not getting on the site much since I've been WFH! Don't know if anyone has taken it upon themselves to add it up, if not, I will try to find the time soon(ish)

    Just say "I had xxx, will replace with yyy" Last year i just had too much going on, but the plan us to intermittently update the scores, and I will remind anyone who hasn't replaced a pick when i do. But I also had Rush Limbaugh, and announced his replacement, so...

    TLW Deathpool 2021

    Not really, but it would be less bad if you enter a team, because you would at least have some skin in the game...

    TLW Deathpool 2021

    Just kidding, I'm having to chase someone down in this comp for the first time, so I noticed its the 3rd one you brought in that I already had, but they are all picks that have been in the news
