I had considered Steve Lawrence for my US charttoppers theme team, but noticed that he was already picked by a crooner theme team in 2021 and I limited myself to those who were entirely unpicked last year. But that could be a lucky break for you if that theme team doesn't participate this year.

Steve Lawrence was Maury Sline in Blues Brothers right?

If you think picking a major celeb who seems likely to die is sick, then I’m pretty sure dead pooling is not the thing for you at all.

When putting together the  biography pictures on the website  I would like to recommend  the top right picture of Chris Sarandon please to be used on his profile. 

  One of the better pictures  of him from Fright Night without showing too much nudity!

Of course if a photo has already been selected then my  recommendation is naturally defunct!

How many teams had Martha Sepulveda??? Did she qualify under the new rules?

Ah, I see, she's dead.

Yes, just yesterday the question came up and we did allow her because the debate she caused was just so big.

I don't know yet how many picked her, if you picked her, too, then that's at least two teams.

True, but we do allow for, let's say, socially signifcant cases. Right now, we have Vicky Phelan, the public face of a cancer scandal in Ireland. Last year, we allowed Noel Conway, a euthanasia "lobbyist".

We mostly wanted to block the sob stories in the tabloids, "mum has her last christmas", "random person XYZ in a coma at New Year's Eve", and "reality TV star's dying step dad who isn't famous at all and would never get a single obit if it wasn't for that family member".

Martha Sepulveda got a BBC (latin) obit as well, so I'd dare to call it a "good call" in terms of relevance. But I could very well imagine that she doesn't even get a qualifying english-language obit.

Sepulveda - mentioned here that right to die was granted and she "underwent the procedure". Sounds good enough for me, even if I don't agree with her inclusion in the DDP personally: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10386757/Colombian-man-one-people-end-life-new-euthanasia-policy.html

Ah well, that's an awfully flimsy QO for an awfully flimsy case. I guess we will discuss it in the committee, but if A, then B, so it might just have to count.

Ha!!

 

I've seen flimsier - wasn't there some French bod, maybe a Spade pick, who got a QO by dint of a picture post on the BBC website and a caption? Hey, it's up to the Committee to decide what's in the rules and up to players to raise the spectre of picking such bods and their acceptability prior to the game starting. And we live with that. 

 

I'd rather have no hits personally than pick such a person - and I had picked Phelan years ago as a FFBI pick! My criteria changed after most of my sick and dying team decided to live. :P

My criteria for my own team in these particular cases is "would my parents bring them up in conversation without my starting it?" Which is yes for Phelan and yes for Dr Granger but no on pretty much all the other ones. My own singular version of the Clapham Bus. :D

 

Also, I have only just twigged I am older than Granger. Thought she was late 30s. Time bloody flies.

Seems this hit pretty much removes the FFBI rule, in practice.  Tested what I thought was the border with one of my picks but, if I knew the fence was down....  I have to admit, all I really want is the W

I did not have her but agree that she should count. Her death was mentioned here on CNN.

I don't think any of these people should count.  They are definitely FFBI - nobody would ever have heard of them if they were healthy.

Was Robert Durst a drop 40???

I too am keen and interested in the drop 40 and which picks are unique,  who has been picked by what team but I think we have just a little while still to wait to find out as the DDP  runners have an enormous task in getting everything sorted and typed up.

Would you exclude very tall or fat people? What about mentally ill serial killers?
