    Thoughts and Opinions on the 2020 List

    There is one DL record that surprisingly the 2020 cull has not yet beaten - the total years on Death List of those that have died in the year. After 14 deaths including such big hitters as O de H (13 years), Kirk (18 years) and Vera (12 years) you would have thought 2020 would have nailed this over all previous lists. However it currently sits with a total of 72 years of Death List entries for its dead due to a lot of virgin appearances dying (6) balancing the average. 2004 with only 12 hits including Ronald Reagan (14 years) and Alistair Cooke (10 years) still currently hangs on to the record with 73 years of Death List entries for its dead. Only Rodney Dangerfield was a virgin appearance of those that died in 2004. There are still 11 first timers surviving on the 2020 list that means it might still take two more deaths to break this record.

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    Hmmm reading this makes me think my route to victory might be not much harder than all those mentioned. Obviously I require my joker Tom Smith to die and also Liz Clarke Saul to get a QO in the SPOTY roundup but that would see me gain 26 points on you and leave me 6 behind. I have a lot of differentials who can score 7 points. Nobby Stiles George Alagiah Sinisa Mihailovic Ernie Moss Bernard Tapie Greg Gilbert Not the greatest selection but Nobby has got to die some time. Your survivors are better than the above list but the shorter the time window the more random the deaths can become.

    Is this a fight or a horrible accent show down?

    John Daly

    John Daly had/has bladder cancer 54 and led a very hard life diet wise. He'll do well to make 60. Used to drink over 25 cans of coke and smoke 40 cigarettes a day - who'd have thought that might screw with your bladder? Article from 2014

    Strictly Come Dancing

    I had wondered if she would be a leader or a follower so that’s answered my musing. Live and let live - if gay couples do ballroom dancing (which they do) then it’s high time Strictly has gay couples - hopefully not a token gay a series but just take what they get when they look for celebrities. i don’t know much about gay couples and how they identify but in ballroom you either have to be a leader or a follower so makes sense she would ask to be one or the other.

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    Of course and I understand. I would think we all know family and friends who have died relatively quickly from diagnosis and had a miserable time in the intervening period too. I don't think the fact that she was lucky that she was able should diminish her achievements though.

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    Jane Tomlinson is a prime example of why dead pooling is so gloriously difficult. In 2000 (so 20 years of treatment improvements ago) she had breast cancer that had spread to her lungs and bones and given 12 months to live - she died in September 2007 a wonderful 7 years later and her charity has now raised over £10 million. Very special lady and I'm absolutely sure that 'a couple of marathons' does not do her justice.

    COVID 19 - Second Wave

    It can only be so many years before Channel 5 develop this into some smutty cross generational dating show 'Lodgers Todgers Roger Podger Codgers' hosted by Joey Essex and Judy Finnegan where young men are placed in old women's homes and see what goes down in The Love Room.

    Internet Celebrities

    Lloyd Cafe Cadena Whosoever they may be - is dead at 26. I believe he used to do a cheap breakfast till about 11 in the morning. There will no doubt be an outpouring of grief amongst his 8 million subscribers - fuck I just don't understand the world I live in any more.
