    TLW Deathpool 2022

    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, 24th January 2022 and 23:59 31st December 2022. Lists are final as of the starting time. 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 Under 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. 50+ - 9 points 35-49 - 15 points Under 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 also 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! I will not open the PM until my list is posted. Good luck everyone!

    Women's World Cup

    Starts tonight. I know I know, most of you don't give a shit and think the quality is rubbish! My daughter plays though, and she is not too bad, so I'll be tuning in as I think it will be good for her to have some female role models as well. And, England actually have a decent team to cheer on! There's at least a couple of scousers in the team too. Anyone else watching, or will it be just me?

    TLW Deathpool 2022

    Putting everyone's list together (finally!) Late entries always welcome, only 1 person has scored so far, so big disadvantage! There following entered last year but not this, if you resubmit, any that you have rolled over from last year will still get the points if they die within the week. This includes @Fowlers God , who has asked me who he had on his last entry in 2019! @Evelyn Tentions @alles ist gut @Bruce Spanner @Atticus Finch @No2 And if I've got the name change correct, @Captain Willard

    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.

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.

    Haven't had a chance to go through anyone's list yet, work is busy and the wife has had covid for the last week and isolating, so I've had to do every bloody school run, shop run, lunch, dinner, evening kids club etc... But here's my list Shannen Doherty Nigel Starmer-Smith Jimmy Carter Rosalynn Carter Linda Nolan Tom Parker Jerry Lee Lewis Bill Treacher June Brown Pele

    AND NEW DEALTHLIST CHAMPION OF TLW IS..... @littletedwest obviously! Congrats mate, and a cracking score too, I think my top score was 90, so you've beat that, and I don't know if anyone has had 8 deaths before either. I am glad to pass over the title of the forum's grim reaper, it has been a heavy burden for the past 5 years! littletedwest - 94 points Rush Limburgh Prince Philip Leon Spinks Jimmy Greaves Dustin Diamond Capt Tom Moore DMX Sarah Harding Evelyn Intentions - 49 points Desmond Tutu Prince Philip Hal Holbrook Christopher Plummer Betty White Strontium Dog, Bjornebye and Redheart all on 39 points All with Prince Philip, Cap Tom Moore and DMX. Stronts had Rush Limbaugh Stig had Murray Walker Redheart made a late charge on to the podium with Betty White The Rest The Woolster, Atticus Finch & No2 - 29 points Vladimirllyich, Red_or_Dead & Gruntfuttock - 20 points Bruce Spanner - 19 points Alles ist Gut, Harry's Lad, Tokyo Joe & Colonel Kurtz (RIP) - 10 points Jairzinho - Nil points Overall, pretty good scoring, usually there is a fair few more with zero deaths. I'll get this year's one up and running in the next few days!

    TLW Deathpool 2021

    Ok, this could be controversial... According to Wiki, Hal Holbrook actually died on 23rd January, and the competition started from 1st February, however, his death was not announced by his family until 2nd February. Unless Evelyn admits otherwise, I presume he did not have inside info on this, so I am going to give him the points! This does however change the leaderboard...

    Shouldn't have made the clarification!

    TLW Deathpool 2021

    Has there been a NYE death before?! I know I've been a crap competition organiser this past year or 2, WFH has been crap for my free time, but I should have the time to tot up the scores next week!

    Boxing 2021

    I had it 11-1. Masterclass

    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

    Fantasy Manager Comp

    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!

    TLW Deathpool 2021

    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)
