  1. Well done to me for winning for the fourth year running....! 

     

    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, 27th January 2020 and 23:59 31st December 2020. Lists are final as of the starting time.

     

    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. NEW RULE

    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 2020

    Rhian Brewster : Made his first home appearance for Swansea against Wigan, scoring their first goal in the 2-1 win when running onto a through ball on the left side of the area and finishing from 15 yards into the opposite corner of the goal. Subbed off with five minutes left. Job done.
     

    Fixed...

  3. That too, its another little psychological boost considering they hadn't managed to get to 400 for a while.

     

    They added 30 odd off what, 3 or 4 overs between the no ball wicket and the actual wicket. Could have added another 20 odd to turn that screw more and give us a bit more flexibility if we get to a position to declare in the 2nd innings. And if the wicket falls straight away, it makes no difference

    I think there's more to it than the 30m I think. I'm sure it came out in the trial that we have royalties at 20% or something , which is double what most sides get. If we maintain our sales numbers we achieve under new balance it is estimated we will make 60-70m a year. The hope is we exceed them obviously. 

     

    Mail reporting as being worth £80m

    The Woolster should be along soon. He's just busy going through the actual death list.

    Hurry up Woolster stop celebrating deaths again and get a move on so I can put Prince Philip in again before he fucks off 

     

    In the absence of @Fowlers God,I guess I don't mind running it now. I've got a title to defend after all!

    You sound like my 12 yo with all this lolling bollocks. 

     

    Studies have found that "lol" tends to be used by older, more middle aged people. Which might actually be more insulting to aRdj!

     

    If your 12 yo is a girl, she might be more likely to be saying "sksksks and I oop!", which I discovered when I ended up going down a VSCO rabbit hole recently.

     

    No, me neither...

    I’d happily give credit to the first person who mentioned Robertson here. Was it @The Woolster?

     

    And its only taken you 2 years to rep it the actual post...!

     

    To be honest, I don't know if I was the first on here to suggest him, but I sure as hell made sure I was the one who took credit for it!

     

    To be fair, the first person I actually saw mention him was Roy Henderson when he was on RAWK years and years ago when Robertson was at Dundee Utd, he was raving about him, so I kept an eye on him when he joined Hull.

    Dr Moderate has gone in balls deep on either a hung parliament or a Labour minority government. 

     

    Come on Dr Moderate. You're our only hope! 

     

    Mate!

    I've been looking at some of these polls, and the headline numbers that we see strip out the undecideds. When the undecideds are included the gap between the Tories and Labour is at least a couple of % points closer than the headlines. The undecideds are still fairly large, ranging from about 8% to 15%.

     

    Now not all of the undecideds will end up voting, but I believe that undecideds that do vote tend to end up voting Labour, I think that is partly because it is a greater % of women who leave their decision late, and they tend to vote Labour. But also, my guess is that these undecideds are more likely to be tactical voters, so I am hopeful that there will be a closing of that gap.

     

    I think the pool are also underweight the youth vote, who we know tend to vote Labour. Including those with the undecideds, I think it could be a couple of % points closer. I thin kwe do need a swing of a couple of points on the headline numbers though, there is a bout a 10% gap, and I think we need to get to about 8% for these missing voters to get us to a hung parliament.

     

    With regards to the latest Survation, its got some funky stuff going on with London. London tends to vote Labour, the other polls that I have looked, including the previous Survation poll, at have Labour leading in London as expected, but this latest one has the Tories on 40.9% and Labour on 36.4%. The Survation poll before was 28.5% Conservative, 39.9% Labour. The poll is based off 98 people in London, which is over 10% of the amount polled, so I am not sure if I trust that this latest poll is actually representative. 

     

    Having since come across this Dr Moderate guy/gal, i now realised that the Leave vote is overweight in the polls too, so even more benefit to give.

     

    I said the I wanted the poll average to come in to at least an 8 point gap, it looks like the average after this evenings releases is about 9%, but with that overweight leave benefit to take into account, it looks to me like a hung parliament too (if this 6% gap requirement is correct).

     

    But if the youth vote really does come out in force, well, then who knows what might happen!

    Ok sorry but you are wrong. She has given plenty of other reasons. She has also refused to rule out cosying up with the tories. It is terrifying that yet again we are staring down the barrel of a Tory/Lib-Dem alliance. 

    She said she could not support the Tory's whilst they have their current Brexit strategy. I think that is as good a ruled out

    If the Lib Dem’s and swinson really wanted a shot at cancelling Brexit then they should have sides with Labour. They will cosy up with the tories. Again. 

    I think Lib Dems going anti Corbyn was the right thing to do. We need the Lib Dems to win seats from the Tory's, and that largely means Tory voters switching to Lib Dem. If those voters felt they were essentially giving their vote to Corbyn, they would be less likely to switch.
