Hares Death Pool 2021

I'm on it. 

Usually I submit the same names as for Deathrace, plus 5, but am considering a completely different approach this time!  Hence the delay.

 

So you take the names that you use for a pool that requires the picks to die as quickly as possible, and submit them for a pool that requires picks to die as late in the year as possible?

 

Without wanting to tell you how to pick your own teams , I'd say that a completely different approach is well warranted!

I just emailed my first Hare's team.  Best of luck to all the competitors.

Well, let's face it, we mostly have no idea when people are going to die, do we? The gist is that if someone doesn't score for me in the early pool, they might oblige in the late one!  :D

I did actually win this pool once.  B)

I think I had a dubious forum record in the Hares Pool? Latest in the year to take the lead in a deadpool and still not win it. Bloody Don Lusk!

Emailed a team last night but haven't got a response yet.

 

Considering that any response would have come from Deathray, you can consider yourself lucky that you didn't receive one !

 

 

(Your team is on the masterlist)

:lol:, Don't send an edited version of the ddp template...I did indeed get an email reprisal for that one. Oh, and for submitting past midday on the 31st. 

 

But honestly happy to say Deathers is his usual charming self.

I've just PM'd An Fear Bag - sorry for it's lateness.

 

I don't give a monkeys when you send the teams in so long as they are before midnight. I've been half cut on Whisky Macs since about 3 o'clock and intend to get progressively more so as the evening progresses. So send in the teams as late as you wish- just don't expect me to deal with them until I sober up tomorrow afternoon. I will happily pass on Deathray's abuse though should it come my way!

 

Your lack of an "e" is just taking the piss though:angry2:

I emailed my team on 30 December but have not gotten a confirmation from Deathray yet. Biggest worry is always that I've typed in the wrong email adress.

I’ve spent the last 10 hours writing Emeritus and putting a hyphen between Newton and John so I’m allowed a misspelling of my own. :D

EMAILED TO: haresdeathpool @ gmail .com (without the spaces)

 

If you follow it up with a request to see if it got there, add in a few choice expletives, that should get a response in kind if nothing else.

 

As indicated above, I got a few words :)

Oh and presumably you could also just pm @An Fear Beag here with the same team as he suggested you could. Then he'll get Deathers pissing in his ear that he already has that team rather than you.

Sucks to be you today Grim.

 

Oh and a message from Deathers:

 

'If anyone can be forgiven for submitting a team late it's you! Good luck with the DDP avalanche'.
