    Derby Dead Pool 2023

    Hello. Many thanks to the DDP admins. Some housekeeping: SPORTSPEOPLE I THINK MIGHT DIE IN 2023: Bill Gates is the former Middlesbrough footballer and not the vaccine-microchipping computer illuminatus. Dave Watson is the former England international (b. 10/46) and not the goalkeeping coach. Dick Savitt is completely correct, I'm just bringing him up because I got a unique hit. PEOPLE I THINK MIGHT DIE IN 2023: Michael Fish is the designer of the kipper tie and my lone recurring unique and not the weatherchap. Salut!

    Oh bugger! Had him, missed Frank McGarvey. I hope that's not indicative of my luck in 2023.

    People I Think Might Die in 2023 United and Sportspeople I Think Might Die in 2023 United, submitted, thanks. Pope/Pele an admin pain, I'm sure, but good for game diversity. Like Fantasy Premier League if Haaland had got injured the day before the league had resumed.

    Jim Hagedorn has died. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10527735/Republican-congressman-Jim-Hagedorn-dies-age-59-two-year-battle-kidney-cancer.html EDIT: Ah, sorry, I see he’s already accounted for in DDP.

    Hmm. I left him out of my 20 because he seemed no more eligible than Dave Marsh, and I thought having all of Marsh, Church and Amy Price was leaning into my subs a bit much. Ah well. By the way, in People I Think Might Die In 2022's team, Michael Fish is not the hurricane denying weatherman but PITMD's perennial pick, the 60's designer. Thanks for your hard work!

    Sorry, I'm still not clear about this. I've got three in my draft team who are all relatives of celebrities. Rules state: "the parents and siblings of celebrities are technically a grey area, but I feel most of them can be run through the 6 check points above" with check point 1 being "Are they notable for anything other than being ill, at least at a local level?" Well, yes, they're notable for being relatives of celebrities. So is the official line that that's not enough? That 'notable' has to mean independent of their relative..? Thanks.

    Ah, Helen McCrory. In my team last year, left her out this.

    Thanks for including People I Think Might Die in 2021 United. 13 years in and just had my second ever unique hit. Things are looking up.

    Never occurred to me til now that by having the same person in my main and theme teams I was denying myself a unique pick. Thanks for the organising, team.

    Ah well, 38=. Can't ever seem to top my best ever 17th. 4th in theme teams on my first go, though. 2020 teams in. Happy New Year, all.
