I'm not picking him in 2020 (spoiler), but something tells me his cancer is a lot more progressed than he's letting on. He claimed it was only at stage 2 when caught, but the amount of tribute shows I'm seeing to him on Italian TV and sports press... I wouldn't be at all shocked if he goes next year.

I picked him. Seems a guy who wants to keep it very private, but his appearances have dramatically decreased.

I've not counted yet. This is my first year on Deathlist. So I've picked him for DDP and many other teams, including AO and Deathrace.

Could be a hat-trick at least then.

Judging by Hares entries, there's a lot of DDP players throwing things at the wall upon seeing someone started a thread for this guy.... :lol:

 

This is why I never started threads on people after opening the entries, but seen as someone else has. He's a goner in 2020 certainly.....

Is that Bobby Davro bottom right? But you said "legends". So I'm hoping it's David Webb.

The cancer could come back later in the year so I wouldn’t completely write him off (relapses occur a lot). But for now he’s much healthier. And hope it stays that way for a while.

His cancer fight was actually two separate fights:

Similar situation with Lars Hogh by the way. They seem to be doing okay for now, and yet, death is waiting around the corner.
