Do you get a bonus for choosing an entire football team?


Somebody did very well on a commentator's XI a good few years ago. Applaud anybody with the balls to submit a themed squad.

To clarify, anyone planning a glass of orange juice at dignitas is out, but if for arguments sake a genuinely celebrity was to go down this route, would they be eligible for the unnatural causes bonus?

Depends on whether you choose the club or the company

Well done Spain for taking this on again.
Must be a lot of work.

Suicide's suicide regardless of the means, so they would indeed.

Thanks again Spain. The principal reason I joined PnB! Shame I'm languishing safely above the relegation zone though. Will be doing a bit more research for this year in the hope of a top half finish.

That's a pretty big age difference you're talking there, which means you'd have be really certain the 25 year old would die. You're just trying to make people gamble away their Captaincies.

I try not to pick people I like. That's my excuse for my mid morgue mediocrity this past year.

Went with a themed team in 2015, everyone was called John, and this year all Interrnational footballers. Limited success of 2 hits each year so probably just going for a team of unhealthy looking celebs for 2017.

Long list of 22,  just need to do some research and get it down to final XV

My squad for next year has 19 in it so far, need to narrow it down. Still time for a couple of this years team to do the decent thing and free up some space.

1st time playing dead pool for me. I've been on the lookout for ill celebs for most of the year. Looking forward to wishing death on people next year.

Just a heads up, if anyone's needing to question a rule / potential pick (e.g. does X, Y or Z count as a terminal illness) then please put "QUESTION" or the like in the subject. If it's just labelled Dead Pool I may not read it any time soon as I'm avoiding reading other peoples teams until I've pretty much finalised my own.

Fair play to the ones that get their lists in early. I'm still hoping for some late 2016 action. Will likely finalise my team on the 31st as usual. 

46 celebrities currently on my shortlist, of course including 10 surviving members of my 2016 squad.

And how's that worked out for you so far? ;)

I think I tried to submit one last year but was too drunk to work out how. Have submitted one (hopefully correctly) and solemnly swear not to help any on the list on their way. Though I may buy Gazza a Long Island Iced Tea if I meet him.
