Roll Over, Play Dead Again DISCUSSION Thread 2019

Postby eric olthwaite » Sun Dec 23, 2018 5:28 pm

As ever, this one for rules and discussion, the other one for listing your picks. Rules:

1. Name THIRTEEN people on the other thread, not below.

2. In order for you to score, they have to be both famous and to die during 2019. Notice of death has to be published by one of the following UK-based sources: BBC; The Times (of London); The Guardian; The Financial Times; The Daily Telegraph; The Independent.

3. You may NOT pick anyone who has been sentenced to death. If you're lucky enough that one of your picks is sentenced to death after close of polling on Jan 1st, that's fine.

4. Upon the death of the chosen individual, you score 120 minus the age of the celebrity at death.

5. You must nominate one of your celebs as your Joker. Death of your Joker scores you an extra 35 bonus points.

6. If any of your dead celebs are a unique pick - ie you have them and no-one else does - you get 35 bonus points.

7. 50 bonus points for murder, manslaughter, 'misadventure', suicide or expiry during a sexual act.

8. 50 bonus points for the first and last stiffs of the year - for each successful competitor, not dead celeb.

9. No more than five of your picks may have been recorded anywhere publicly as having cancer before Dec 31st 2018.

10. You may not pick anyone who would not be famous if they were not terminally ill.

Get your predictions up before midnight Dec 31st.

Can we get someone to pin the picks this year?

Add usual it'd be helpful for the spreadsheet if people rolling over from last year could indicate that's what they've done.

Also helpful when replacements take the same spot in the list as the outgoing celeb rather than at the bottom with others shuffling a place (makes normalising the names for spellings and whatnot a bit quicker/less error prone).

Sperm of an idea:

A wildcard entry is formed of the 13 favourites, based on numbers of picks, and entered in the name of late Ballers (who may well be more ITK than we imagine)
I like it. What is it?

At least let one of the lazy bastards pick the joker.

For what it’s worth to anyone else, now my list has gone all Brexit, my hot bet for rapper most likely to get unnaturally dead next year was Tekashi 6ix9ine, aka Daniel Hernandez. Think he’s likely to be in prison most of the time but I wouldn’t expect that to stop him, paedo dickhead that he is.
