P&B Dead Pool 2017

1,181 posts in this topic

My first year entering, almost picked Keith Richards then remembered he's immortal.

With the way they were dropping like flies this year some folk must have done well.

I bowed out last year but I'm up for it again for 2017, are you still doing the obscure US college sports stuff or has that been binned ? Sorry, I don't have the will to wade through this years thread.

Or you could just read the OP. The US College Sports have been barred since last year.

Shouldn't the Dead Pool be a list of those that posters want to, rather than expect, to die?

It would be much better to have such controversial lists rather than the usual suspects - cancer and MND sufferers, stroke victims, nonagenarians etc.

Wouldn't be much of a game then though would it? Nothing stopping you starting such a "game".

The Polis wouldn't come knocking. It's just a forum with the usual threads that could be considered to be objectionable or in poor taste. Unless you plan to murder those on your list...

Right, where's a mod when you need one? @Mr X any chance of pinning this thread?

Not started cutting down my shortlist just yet - 2016 isn't finished with us yet.

After a promising start this year, I've fell away a bit. Aiming for a top-5 finish next year!

Feel free to bring this post back when none of my bunch play the game and I've got zero points this time next year.

Cheers and thanks for running it, it must be a ballache at times.

I'm not famous, but I'd imagine if I was the first person to throw myself off the new Queensferry Crossing, my suicide might make the news.Would I be awarded the points in this scenario? Admittedly, it's a bit of an extreme step to take, but I'm quite competitive.

All these folk with 'squads' of picks already - I won't even have a think about next year's squad until a couple of days before the deadline.

No, not allowed to kill your own picks.

Cheers. Missed that bit. Would you not get more points for giving me a lift to Dignitas on my birthday though?

I treat my squad like an NFL roster. It's huge to start with, but I cut people in various phases until I'm left with the best I can manage. There's always room for a late big trade though.

Also, I don't think I've ever had these many teams in this early. Hopefully bodes well for the total number of players this year.

Quiet you, makes life a lot easier for me! If everyone submitted on the 31st there'd be no chance of the list going live on the 1st or probably even the 2nd!
