The 2020 Deathlist Cup

Recommended Posts

I might change my mind again now that Sir C is out. I have a good feeling about his "I knew exactly how she fell, but I was not there" coma victim. A tragic air bubble to the heart accident is just waiting to happen.

 

Anyway, all eyes on TQR vs Deathray...

Yeah, it’s a bit too late to join the cup now. Sorry. Also Sir Creep isn’t necessarily out yet, there’s a name or two that seems to gone MIA, and he’s first up to return...

GUN - the rules are explicit, I lose the tie break.  That's the way it goes sometimes.   So hoping to prevail on merits with a last second death.  Peter Tobin...where are you?  lol.

I know you lose the tiebreak.
You seem to be arguing with my post that says same as yours?? 
 

That is you can still win on merit with another death.

According to Joey's post above, you are the Best Loser right now if teams fail to get sent in, so you might yet get to Round 2 by Default.

According to a stupid ass rule that says quantity trumps quality, I am the 'Best Loser'.  Funny, I didn't win alt obits despite having 17 hits last year.

So, as I said before, the top two for best loser has been set out. As for the third person, I did have to do a randomized draw since five people had Daniel Arap Moi, who was the youngest hit of the three pointers. So as such, here are the first 3 names up to return if people don’t send in a team. 
1. Sir Creep

2. Djemba Djemba

3. Old Crem

 

So anyways, here’s the first three up to return. If more is needed, I do also have placements for the next 4 who picked Arap Moi but hopefully we don’t have to go that far...

WAKE UP JOEY!

 

I think this probably counts as a QO given precedent and thus the Cup has started?

May I assume I at least have set a record for most meaningless but youngest Cup Joker?

Nope. Most meaningless joker is probably DJ Nelstar. Because he ended up dying before the starting, and had he lived to June, he didn’t receive a single QO...

Aye, Nicole Hart looks like another Sandy Danny event, except she done woked up!  She is gonna start remembering things soon when husband (who wasn’t home at the time) shoved her down the stairs.  He won’t be home when she suffocates herself w her pillow.  ‘Nicole always rolled around in bed like that.  Always picking up her pillow and chewing on it.  Just my guess, as I was away at the time.’

Some dumb asses be posting teams.

BTW was this mentioned?  Have we ever had a Cup entrant who didn't die, but their spouse did during the month?
John Manners (grobler's team) wife.... on 1 Feb no less.  (Probably not right John Manners??)

Out of curiosity, does anyone know what the latest a cup pick ever died to win a match.? Have there been many last day deaths to settle a tie?
