Ok, I give up.  It's probably right under my nose, but I can't find it.  When does this pool officially start?

@Bentrovato: Currently no #25

 

OK... that's where we stand for sub institutions. Not all of these are final IE if Brown is your sub and you haven't specified a higher slot you're free to do so, likewise if you have yet to indicate a new sub pick. Those who I've @ ed will need to give me a new name as they do not currently have a full team.

 

I'll get started on entering Dr T, Spade, GUN, and manuel's teams shortly

Forgot the subs bit. How dare Mrs C pass on so quick. Can I get Jill Gascoine in there. And if another sub is needed then June Brown.

To clarify, that's noon tomorrow, right? Or do you mean 23:59?

Billy Connolly and Paul Gascoigne are both eligible for my #1 Hits Derby Dead Pool team, and I decided not to use either of them. Not even close enough to death's door for a theme team that stooped to including Demi Lovato.

And the door for entries slams shut. machotrouts's team will be entered and the stats posted in a few hours time. Good luck to all, and my sincerest gratitude to Prince Philip for not dying in that car accident and sparing me another substitution nightmare! :biggrin:

STATS AND FACTS

 

The Inverse Dead Pool has seen its most robust participation rate yet, with 48 teams entered (+12 compared to last year). Like last year, no name was unanimously picked or excluded (3 teams at worst, 46 teams at best). The names to come closest to being unanimous picks were the Donald, Her Maj, and Gazza, who were only omitted by two teams each. CaptainChorizo left out Gascoigne, Sir Creep's daughter (whose team was picked by randomly choosing numbers) didn't land Trump or Elizbaeth, and msc's deliberate "take one for the team" excluded all three!

 

The people's choice for 2019 is as follows, sorted by overall points, but with the amount of teams to plump for them also included. The top four remains identical to last year (last year's #5, Angela Lansbury, narrowly missed out on being selectable again). Trump may well start keeping copies of Inverse Dead Pool stats in the Oval Office considering how popular he is here!

The people's choice for 2018, if an actual team, would have finished at =8th place with 36 points. Carol Channing would've been a big landmine had she lasted a few more days... which names out of the above will follow suit and shake up the scoreboard this year?

Though it is worth noting that only half of last year's bottom ten actually died. And two of the survivors of that (Vervoort and Gilbert) are on over half of this year's teams!

So Andrew Fairlie is the first to go officially.

 

Anyone have the audacity to pick him?

Oh yes, when I get a hit, it's a big deal.

 

I'm a bit pish at this whole thing you see. :lol:

 

Obviously, I didn't pick him here.
