    Derby Dead Pool 2022

    & Anne Brokenbraw - who was the intended sub for one of Edith and Esther but wasn't allowed off the insignificant bench she was sitting on. There were also a couple of FFBI type picks that made it (with distaste) simply because they had enough notable coverage in their past pre illness to get over the line. I'm sure someone will be pointing those out once the site is up.

    AFB - just a short note to say how sorry I am to have not managed to get an entry in this year for my favourite pool. I’ll be back next year. cheers, GUN

    My favourite happening from this year’s submission process was someone who may or may not be a forum member submitting their monthly household budget in the attached excel sheet rather than their DDP team. Very detailed and multi coloured it was too!

    So all teams are in and coded up but Reptile and DI are still wading through the bios for the 833 new celebrities picked this year (850 in 2021, 791 2020). I quote the previous two years because my impression was that the extra unique point had led to an explosion of new picks but actually that’s not the case. As well as picking out a few of my obvious oversights this process also includes picking out the FFBIs and deciding which are to be disallowed and then further wok needs done finalising those teams affected with hopefully some valid subs. Anyway we’re getting closer but still a little way off.

    What would you like to see on TV?

    The Great British Breast Off perhaps? (yes I know neither of them are British)

    Not sure the Lolita Express would have been of much interest - maybe the Lenny Star but I'm not sure that was in Epstein's fleet.

    Sorry once your team is in unless the picks die before the starting line or are disallowed then your team is your team - even in those situations it just falls back on your subs bench. Otherwise I'd have a lot of requests to swap their jokers for Gary Burgess.

    It is a sad fact that any post commenting on spelling always contains a spelling mistake

    Right all teams fully loaded up - just under 500 this year. Still about 360 celeb new misspelt not recognised celebs to check (565 already done) and lots of other checking to do but always a nice milestone to have all the teams on. No review of dodgy picks has taken place yet as names not 'released' to reptile and DI yet. That will happen over the next week. I am now at the point where I no longer have to write '(footballer)' in front of Pele which I feel like I have done about 250 times but I'll find out later how many. No more squeezing Emeritus into the Pope's name. No more adding the dash in to Oliver Newton-John. No more adding the . to Michael J. Fox No more rewriting Queen Elizabeth II or just adding II. etc etc etc
