Inverse Dead Pool 2023

Recommended Posts

INVERSE DEAD POOL 2023

   

Welcome to the 12th edition of the Inverse Dead Pool, the nice dead pool where you don't want your picks to die. :angel:

 

How to play

  • The game starts when I post a list of this year's 50 most popular Derby Dead Pool picks. From this list of 50, you must pick 25 people who you think will SURVIVE the year. The premise is to AVOID picking people who will die.
  • Rank your picks – from least likely to die to most likely to die. You receive points according to their position on your team – 25 points if your #1 pick dies, 24 points if your #2 pick dies, and so on, down to 1 point if your #25 pick dies, and 0 points if anyone you haven't picked dies.
  • You do NOT want points. The winner is the player with the fewest points at the end of the year (Dec 31, 23.59 GMT).
  • You may also appoint a substitute, or substitutes, in case any picks die before the submission deadline (or in case you accidentally include a name twice). If that happens, everyone in a lower position on your team moves up a place, and your top substitute is drafted in at #25.
  • Once you have a team ready, post it in this thread.
  • If an eligible pick dies during the submission period, then the 51st top DDP pick becomes eligible; if another dies, then the 52nd becomes eligible, etc.
  • You may amend your team after posting it, as long as it's before the submission deadline (you might want to do this if, for example, the 51st name becomes eligible and you want to include them). If you do, make sure to post again in this thread to clarify what you've changed.

 

Tie break details

  • If two or more players are tied for victory at the end of the year, the winner is whoever had the fewest points most recently (i.e. whoever had the most recent pick to die, or whoever ranked that pick higher if all tied players picked them, or whoever had the second most recent pick to die if those are the same, etc).
  • If all tied players have the exact same hits in the exact same positions (or if they achieve a heretofore-unachieved perfect score of 0), the tie is not broken – all tied players share victory.

 

Congratulations to our previous winners...

:angel: PLACEHOLDER POST :angel:

 

The 50 names and the submission deadline are in the post below. This post was here so I could go back and edit them in later so they wouldn't get lost in the middle of the thread, but as there were no posts made in the days between this and the reveal of the names, it is now superfluous, and it turns out I can't delete it. Oops!

Additional notes:

  • Gianluca Vialli and Frank McGarvey are also in this year's DDP top 50, but as they've already died, they are not in play, as dead people are typically precluded from surviving the year. The above names are the top 50 still alive as of the Inverse Dead Pool starting line.
     
  • Three names are currently tied at #51 – Michael J. Fox, Cleo Laine, and Michael Parkinson – all of whom may come into play if there are more deaths in the top 50 during the submission period.

@Great Uncle Bulgaria Gazza's only on 13 DDP teams this year, nowhere near Drop 40 status. People clearly have faith on him staying on wagons.

I'll submit a team in a wee while.

 

I'm prepared to be surprised, but I'm going to predict right off that 33 of that lot are guaranteed dead by the end of the year.

 

Which makes this harder than Nadhim Zahawi's tax return...
