Derby Dead Pool 2022

Recommended Posts

341 teams in and loaded up - another 50 emails waiting to be entered, some with more than one team, but they're coming in faster than I can enter them now so time to stop and catch up next year.

 

Have a Happy New Year everyone!

 

Cheers, GUN

Sorry, I'm still not clear about this. I've got three in my draft team who are all relatives of celebrities. Rules state: "the parents and siblings of celebrities are technically a grey area, but I feel most of them can be run through the 6 check points above" with check point 1 being "Are they notable for anything other than being ill, at least at a local level?" Well, yes, they're notable for being relatives of celebrities. So is the official line that that's not enough? That 'notable' has to mean independent of their relative..? Thanks.

 

Oh well. Guess I'll find out soon enough.

 

Entered, thanks.

I can’t send anything to the email.  Fix that shit.  
No I don’t have Office tools and have no intention of obtaining them.

If there is a new email since the OP then post that goddamn email address.

The email didn't change. It's still ddp@derbydeadpool.co.uk

 

Office tools aren't necessary to contact the DDP email so not sure what the problem currently is?

In the past, yes, but you were asking if the email changed since this thread was created and the email we've been using for all of this year remains in use.

New theme team:

 

Poor Little Ghoul - consisting of US Billboard chart toppers, named in reference to Ricky Nelson's "Poor Little Fool" as it were the first Billboard No 1 hit and I couldn't think of any better name ideas. As the main reason for creation is wholly admittedly because these people would be fun for me to write the obits for, I limited myself to names that fit the theme that WEREN'T picked on the DDP in 2021 - no reason to go for people like ONJ, Ronstadt, or Valli when they're sure to be picked anyway.

 

C. W. McCall (JOKER)

Abdul "Duke" Fakir

April Stevens

Barry McGuire

Dave "Baby" Cortez

Dean Torrence

Gary Troxel

Gary U.S. Bonds

Jay Siegel

Johnny Farina

Johnny Rivers

Mark Lindsay

Maurice Williams

Nino Tempo

Ruby Nash Garnett

Sandy Nelson

Santo Farina

Shirley Owens

Tommy Roe

Vito Picone

 

Pretty surprised no one picked Abdul "Duke" Fakir in 2021!

 

Newcomers to my space team are Joe Engle, Jake Garn, Margaret Hamilton, and Maarten Schmidt.

sooooo, just found a page of notes that somehow got lost in my research shuffle... quite a few great names that went forgotten.  Not feeling too comfortable, at the moment, needless to say.
