Who Gets The Chop For 2021

Recommended Posts

Pick the names that will get dropped by the committee for 2021 Season. 
 

As things stand that’s at least eight names. 
 

So label your names 1-8 

 

Correct predictions score as follows;

No. 1 Scores 8 points
No. 2 Score 7 points
No. 3 Scores 6 points 

No. 4 Scores 5 Points

No. 5 Scores 4 Points

No. 6. Scores 3 Points

No 7. Scores 2 Points

No 8. Scores 1 point

 

If you pick someone who dies before between game start and end game end you lose 5 points.

 
Please add one sub in case a pick dies before start of tournament. I will add sub into spot of deceased. 
 

Tournament starts 1st December and ends 31st December.

:scratchhead: maybe I don't understand the rules but:-

 

GWB looks more like a guess for top 8 of Death List next year and

JMB98 - well it's hard to get dropped from the Death List when you're not on it and never have been on it in some cases.

I assumed GWB was speaking for the Bill Gates's Dad Fan Club and thought those 8 were far too famous...

Aren't the idea of subs pointless for this pool? Cause if we get another hit, the number then goes down to 7, and if we get one after that, it'll be 6, etc

Doesn't that only apply if as many stay on as possible? 

If there are lots of  'oven ready' people to go on who are considered better bets than what we have already then we could still wave goodbye to at least 8, in which case there is still a possibility that one of your choices goes and you need a sub to make it up to 8. I agree it seems unlikely but still possible.

They always keep 25 though, apart from 2011 when they kept 26 due to one of the long forgotten unwritten rules about dropping Al Megrahi.

The idea of the sub is to ensure that if someone makes a pick who dies before the game starts all players keep eight people and the scoring remains fair and straightforward.  If only seven names are dropped the eight positioned name won’t score. I guess there are alternative ways of doing it and if the game goes well and I run it again I can fine tune it for next time.

 

Which reminds me I forgot to add my sub, so I’ll say Henry Kissinger.

I think the rules are clear? 

We’re looking for eight names that remain living that are on this years list and won’t be picked by the committee for next years list. 
 

Plenty of time to resubmit if I wasn’t clear!

 

Thanks for the interest and entries so far received!
