^^ The 98 was the score.

 

We've had a couple of hits now. Rodion GA, Anne Buydens on my side, too.. lots of others, I guess.

Intermittent is one way of putting it.

 

Even in my terrible tenor, it was infrequent that updates were this far apart, knocking on two and half months now.... 

 

I entrusted this pool to AFB under the impression it was in good hands. :evil::rant:

 

If this had been while I was hosting, you two faced tossers would be offering to take over the reigns because I couldn't cope by now.

Yes.

The Hares Death Pool points were awarded from the notable's expiry date number of days from January 1,  so I wrote 98 for scores.

The overall points system is incredibly simple:

  1. 1 Point for each day of the year that passes before your celebs death (if they die on the 10th of January you are awarded 9 points for example) up until the games close at midnight on the 31st December.

 

I counted 98 days from 1 Jan to 9 April. Maranne's death date is 12 April 2021, 98+3 (101). Thus, 98 and 101 are the correct SCORES in the Hares Death Pool 2021 with which to update my TALLY, unless more of my entries drop before the next update.

Did you blip over the word 'scores'? Why else would you remind us Prince Philip was 99?

Welcome back Deathers, you grumpy cunt. What's the fucking problem with infrequent updates at this time of year? Once you get past the fun of people getting 5 hits in January, the game doesn't get interesting again until about September! If I was a petty cunt, I could look back at how often the pool used to be updated before I did it. As it happens, I am a petty cunt and a quick look back to 2019 shows an update in January, March, May, August, October, and December. So every 2 months - about the same time since I last did it.

 

So you can take your "I entrusted this pool to AFB under the impression it was in good hands" and shove it up your fucking hole :smiley_f:. I'll update it when I am good and ready. 

 

(Good to see you back though - you've been missed :D)

So here is the update that everyone has seemingly been waiting for. The dubious honour of leading the pack, a mere 4 months into the contest goes to Gcreptile who has used up 8 picks to top the pile. Following closely behind is Quim Reaper, who is still racking up the hits at an impressive(?) rate and has 8 hits for a paltry 466 points. In the minor places are Death Impends and En Passant with 7 hits each. But as I've tried to tell you, it all shadow boxing in these still early days.

 

At the bottom end of the table ImNotHades, Etib8 and Guyfromfuture have all decided to enter the race proper, securing their first hits, while Bibliogryphon gets a first scoring hit. That leaves just three players Ebless, Predictor and Yorkshire Banker still warming up at the starting line.

 

However there is only 1 really  big story of this update, and that is that after scoring a complete duck-egg in 2020, Deathray finally got a hit. A real actual hit!!:bow:  Johnny Briggs went to the big soap in the sky on 28th February, to give Deathers his first hit since Herman Wouk on May 17th 2019. That is a total of 652 days without a hit - a record which will take some beating:clap:

A Prince Philip hit was the icing on the cake for our former host.

Now this is an interesting one.

 

I did see Lee Noble on the masterlist, and am aware of the death of boxer Lee Noble (the fucker knocked me out of the cup :evil:)

 

But here's the thing. The masterlist that Deathray posted on page 3 of this thread lists Lee Noble (designer). And indeed there is a Lee Noble who is a car designer, as the petrol-heads among you will know. I accept that it is far more likely that you meant a cancer suffering boxer rather than an apparently perfectly healthy car designer. But do I go with the Deathrays masterlist, or take your word on who you meant? Hmmm - what would Deathers do?:scratchhead:

Hi AFB - okay you can make whatever ruling you want as the game runner but my entry which is posted higher up page 3 simply said Lee Noble - Deathers added the incorrect ‘designer’ label off his own bat.

 

Mitigating factors in my favour are what you have posted above and also that I noticed you had missed him from your list of deaths and also the first 20 names are my DDP team and if you reference that you will see that it was the boxer.

 

My Hares team is always my DDP team plus 5 old codgers.

 

Over to you.

 

Cheers, GUN

I've slept on it, and am ready to pass my judgement.

The first obvious answer to "what would deathers do?" is that he would hurl a torrent of abuse at you for not clarifying at the start who you meant. I'm not going to do that, but will take a more measured approach.

In previous years, this would not have been an issue, as usually Deathray was very meticulous about checking with players who exactly they intended with their picks. However, certain (ahem) circumstances last year meant that he was not able to dedicate as much time as he usually does to sorting out the masterlist, and therefore inaccuracies have arisen.

A touch ironically, had he not returned briefly last December to organise this pool again, I was going to tweak the rules a little. On of my proposed tweaks was that if I did not immediately recognise the name of a pick, I was not going to make any effort to contact the player for clarification, but was just going to google the name and assign the first person whose wikipedia page appeared. And the masterlist would be final. In this case, you would have been given Lee Noble the car designer!

 

However, as I said earlier, I think it is fairly obvious that you intended Lee Noble the cancer-stricken boxer, rather than the apparently healthy designer. Therefore I have added him to your list of hits. Have another 79 points and climb a few places on the leaderboard. 

 

You will look a right mug though when the car designer drops dead of a heart attack at a New Years Eve party!

Surprised you missed tenor/tenure, you're slipping..... :-)

Otherwise, I agree with you.
