Derby Dead Pool 2019

Recommended Posts

If we can get to 100 hits by Easter, we could be looking at a record-breaking year. Although we've had some false dawns before...

DDT is currently cursing People I Think Might Die In 2019 United for denying him a unique hit.

 

And vice versa!

I've always liked that team name.  Well done.

For those on the QO hunt, The Times is clearly cleaning out a backlog. Of the four obituaries published today, three (transgender drone pioneer Bobbi Swan, archaeologist Roger Mercer and Wrecking Crew member Joe Osborn) died in 2018.

I guess if they're really bored they'll have the Michael Gielen obit soon.

So this will be classic SC luck.  Having lived through the ND Tiwari disappointment, I intentionally cut Parrikar probably one of my last 5 cuts.  Decided I wasn't going to live through that QO horseshit again.  So let's see this time.  Tiwari was every bit as high level, AND had tabloid to boot.  Parrikar should have LESS of a chance to obit, frankly.  So he will.  And I will just avoid DDP, can't figure out the QO thing.  #NotMyLocalMediaOutlet

Well fuck a duck! Capon got a QO!

 

I think this put my No-Obits theme team in line for Player of the fucking Month. What a day! :lol:

Er, I just checked the list of the lost. Is Miriam Rivera actually dead, or did you accidentally put her in for someone else (cause I can’t find anything about her death)...

EDIT: I see the rumors now but Wikipedia still has her as alive. Weird...

Yeah, I’m 95% sure she really is dead. The only other explanation I can think of is someone stole her identity to further their porn career, and that person died. But yeah, I think Miriam’s dead.

New look, abridged Theme Team League now live. All that needs doing now is some updating of the archives and that's the back-end sorted.

Since I noticed you updated the deaths page without him, Valery Bykovsky is a unique hit for I Told You I Was Ill, and here’s his QO.

Bill Heine has jumped the shark:

 

 
Going Underground return to the top of the DDP.

 

 

It's a sign of how badly my A team is doing that I was actually disappointed that Heine is in my A team rather than my B team.

The sad passing of original EastEnders actress Sandy Radcliffe is a unique 'hit' for me in my Blueberry Crumble team.

Second' hit 'for me in my Blueberry Crumble team in a matter of a few days as Robot Wars Rex Garrod sadly dies. 

 

So glad I took on board the information and pointers from @Sean posts on this forum that clearly indicted Rex would be a decent pick.

Re the post above he's a nailed-on q/o, surely - just give it a few hours

 

And his demise has breathed a little life into my moribund DDP team this year.

I know but I was Impatient to share the news and I'd be majorly surprised if one isn't forthcoming soon!
