Green and Gerard Houllier (a unique for Dinner Reservation for 20) have us within 14 of the record, and 17 days left...

We could have a slow end to 2020 in the celeb death stakes.

Alright, I have now finished googling all picks this year to see if there are any hidden hits - and while I saw some previously unknown deaths, none of them got a qualifying obit.

So, if you see any other hit - let me know...

As of right now, we are exactly on par with 2016 and we are now up to a necessary "1 death per day" to break the record of 2016. However, we do not know how many late obits, or year-end roundup obits still come. Last year we've had one, Formula 1 racer Jim Russell. I think, in 2018 we had two, those Aston Villa football players (?). I don't know how many we had in 2016.. but it's usually around 2 or so, IIRC. So we might still run a day ahead or so of 2016 - or not!

13 days, 12 hours and 51 minutes left of the year, and the era of the FFBI picks being allowed in the DDP.

 

A minor addition to the overall frenzy of Deadpooler's Christmas...

Through my googling of every pick in this year's DDP, I was left with 2-3 more picks that I consider a possibility of still becoming a hit this year.

Now, I did not research every single name, but with the cancer mums/dads/children, one does have to look a little harder, just to know who they are and what happened to them....

Alf Wood also gets mentioned there as well, so at least two names are off the LOTL now

Belso - btw - started two F1 races and, fittingly, was picked by two teams in the DDP.

Nice late obituaries. They fulfill the quota of getting about 2 late obits per year.

However, I could also imagine one or two more non-sport people, especially the Nobel prize winners.

Ron Tauranac is still on the List of the Lost, even though he's quite rightly dead on his own entry as he got a Telegraph obit.

 

Just needs removed.

 

Have we no Losters since October?

Probably not, but most of them are so obscure their DDP teams haven't noticed, let alone me. :lol:

 

Tauranac a tribute to the great 2013 DDP when Jack Pardee was LOTL and then a hit after his obit was discovered 5 months later. (That was an impressive timelapse in the pre-Belso days...) Either that or I forgot.

So the hits record is 275 isn't it? I guess it's still do-able to equal it, but going to need a push to get it higher. :sherlock:
