Norman Lloyd's grand age meant the vast majority of the Inverse participants anticipated him heading Elsewhere this year, but he proves to be a Saboteur for the seven teams who bet otherwise.

Yoo Sang-chul not one of my picks. Hoping for those at the top to have been cavalier with their picks!

11 teams thought Yoo Sang-chul could defy pancreatic cancer like he defied the conventional wisdom of the 2002 World Cup. They all guessed wrong. Only Book and Sir Creep retain their clean sheets, with Creep having correctly assessed YSC's survivability for two Inverses in a row.

OK now that it's been made public that I'll be co-hosting the DDP starting next year, I've decided to retire from hosting the Inverse. Even if the front page role of DDP hosting is admittedly the most low maintenance part, I think it's wisest to self-impose a two-pool hosting limit (and there aren't enough people who understand the HPDP so I am obliged to stick with that one ;))

 

If anyone is interested in taking over hosting duties let me know.

I nominate machotrouts for Inverse Dead Pool host.

 

Here's his CV:

- Former Inverse Dead Pool champion

- Managed to get into the "Credit to" section for proposing a very minor rule change once

- Alive (relevant to theme of thread)

- Reckons he'd be good at it

- Nothing else going on in life

I like your style. All yours if you want it.

 

Let me know if you need any tips as to how it is run - if not that is fine as well, given the pool is a fairly simple structure.

Thank you, Death. Is there anything behind-the-scenesy I should know about, or is everything to hosting just what I've seen in the thread? Presumably I should maintain a spreadsheet?

 

Are you seeing out the year and looking for a 2022 host, or is this an immediate-effect resignation?

The hosting is for 2022 onwards, yes.

 

If you have a good handle on spreadsheets it's pretty straightforward. My Excel file has a few different pages for each year, of the picks, the teams, the scoreboard, and the popularity statistics. After the entry period closes, an update typically takes me 10 minutes, with about 8 of them spent thinking of shite puns regarding the dearly departed celeb. :biggrin:

If I may add to this, the host of the Inverse gets the 50 eligible names from the DDP host/committee. It happens once all teams are entered into the database and the access file spits out a counting of all the names, which is usually around January 10th-15th.

Gerd Muller is the final nail in the coffin for Team Willz. And he's only my second hit on the pool!

 

One more year, Gerd, that's all I needed...

27 teams are running in the wrong direction with the death of Sarah Harding. The final two clean sheets Book and Sir Creep are among them, though both placed her very low and thus remain among the serious contenders.

Hahaha, ya killed the hopes of many teams, Greavsie. Sir Creep and Pedro now take the joint lead in this funny old game, though Creep is technically ahead in the tie as he alone has the most recent hit.

A slow-burning cancer Delayed the inevitable for Greg Gilbert into 2018... and 2019... and 2020... and 2021... but not into 2022. Pedro gains one point, whereas Sir Creep shows an indie streak in not picking Gilbert and thus attaining the solitary lead.
