    Derby Dead Pool 2022

    I know . I've honestly never even heard of Tony Brown the cricketer. Not even in my search for deadpool entrants. But, you watch, he'll die and I'll regret bringing the matter up in the first place.

    Derby Dead Pool 2022

    Advice noted. Which is why I've tried to be polite about it. I've also not been around the forum a whole lot the last couple of weeks, but am today. My luck, I'd only otherwise notice it after one of the Mr. Tony Browns had died, making it more complicated than if I just mention it today and take whatever flak comes with the request.

    https://www.derbydeadpool.co.uk/deadpool2022/celebs_W.html Most of the info isn't up, but I just changed the current celebs URL to '2022' to gain access.

    Derby Dead Pool 2022

    I see the 'Celebrity Picks' section is accessible. Firstly, a thank you for all the effort put into getting the DDP up and running! I do realize there will be some adjustments to be made over the coming days, as checks are made to ensure all is correct. Whenever that occurs - and there is not a pressing concern - there is a slight adjustment for my team (Fade To Black). The Tony Brown I picked was the NBA referee, not the cricketer. My entry can be double-checked, to confirm. (Watch now as Tony Brown the cricketer dies and Tony Brown the ref does not. That would serve me right.)

    There will hopefully be a better source in the coming days, but I think this still works as a QO for Jana Bennett.
