If Miguel doesn't get the lists up sharpish, I suggest WE find him and kill him.

 

Not illegal.

 

Dead pool rulz state we can't kill our picks, and you cannot pick a P&B'r, so no Court in the Land could convict us :)

 

 

Bet inspector Morse never came up v that afore.....

So anyhoo, Laws of dead pool:

Folk will pick folk that are already dead.

I'm nearly done going through the lists, but I had to respond to this one. Two dead people have been picked. One of them died in 1999.

Dropped the likes of her, VerVoort and Clive James like stones....

However, anybody have the rapper Feis?

Shot dead revelling in the wee hours in Rotterdam.

I thought of dropping Clive James too until I read this just before Christmas - https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2018/dec/21/when-mary-beard-met-clive-james-review - "now the end really does look near".

Once the lists are revealed there will be an absolutely fucking obvious pick you missed.

Your nailed-on banker for a solo shot will have been picked by about ten other folk.

Someone you thought was obvious will be a surprise solo shot.

You'll share a deadly duo with a P&Ber you've never even feckin heard of before.

About two days into the year it will become clear that one (or more) of your picks is absolutely fitting fit and will see out the next two decades let alone the next year.

Someone you dropped from last years list will depart early doors.

Someone you nearly picked will depart early on.

Someone you thought was already dead will die.

Folk will pick folk that are already dead.

The Duke of Edinburgh will be the most picked in 2020.

The Duke of Edinburgh will be the most picked in 2021.

 

 

I suggest a lifetime achievement award for Ned. Consistent quality pooling, but has he ever won?

Alright, the data is still a work in progress in terms of how I want to present it, but I know how eager everyone is to peruse the lists as soon as possible, so here is some information. 

- There are 87 entrants

- The most popular pick was Prince Philip, with 51 picks

- I really don't want to count all the solo shots and deadly duos (at least right now), but there's fucking loads of them. 

The list of entrants, teams and relevant information has been added to the third post at the start of the thread. Please let me know how the formatting and loading works for this - it shows up fine for me on desktop but my monitor is quite wide, and it was quite slow to load because of how much stuff was there. In the meantime, I've attached the full spreadsheet to this post. You'll probably need OpenOffice or another program that opens spreadsheet files to view it.

In the spoiler below is a full list of names and how many times they were picked. There may be some repeats/omissions, but everything in the original spreadsheet is correct and any issues with the lists/presentations should be corrected over the coming weeks.

Since this is the last of the stuff I'm going to post now I'd like to say thank you for the volume of players and of support I got from lots of your PM's. I know the Dead Pool has been going on here since long before I started posting, so I hope I can do it justice over the time I'm in charge of it. Good luck.

When he matches my 3 wins then he can have an LAA.

I count 6 solo shots in there for me.

Kim Yong-ju: he’s 98 and a relative of Kim Jong-un. Not good odds. For him. Great odds for me. 

Doreen Mantle: played Mrs Warboys in One Foot in the Grave. She looked decrepit in that, and it finished 18 years ago.

James Martin: not the chef; he played Eric in Still Game. Another who looked decrepit last decade.

Frank Williams: one of only two left from Dad’s Army. Tick tock.

Des Lynam: carry-over from last year, when he was added because he looked awful then. 

Sylvester McCoy: a shot in the dark really.
