Celebrity Death Pool 2016

Sigh

Could you please also post your list without the commentary? Comments are cool, but a plain format makes my life easier. See the rules in the OP.

I’ve just checked the (short) list of those I had noted as possibles for 2016 and they’ve all died! :frowning:

Clint Eastwood
Stephen Hawking
Harrison Ford
Joey Feek
Jimmy Carter
Stephen King
“Superfly” Jimmy Snuka
William Shatner
Jared Fogel
Mickey Dolenz
Willie Nelson
Ron Jeremy
Dwight Schultz

Alternates

Bruce Dern
Paul McCartney
James Earl Jones

You might want to list some of your entries by their professional names (like The Amazing Jonathan and Malcolm Young)

Thank you, Frank Gifford. My first-ever 16 points in the Death Pool was by ol’ #16 of the NY Giants.

Alright, I’m in for 2016. List coming soon… (ish).

Bullitt courteously posted the following near the beginning of the 2015 thread, and I certainly found it useful, so here it is again:

Can I suggest a new category of ‘Most First Picks’ to encourage early entries? It’s very tempting to hang back and analyse the picks others have made and select the best. But if there were an advantage in an early post, that might mix things up a little.

FTR my list is nowhere near complete!

I was just going to rollover my list from last year (with a replacement for my one good pick) - however, Baker’s sample list in the OP looks mighty tempting! :smiley:

It’s the “Toto, we don’t want them in Kansas anymore” list!

I was hoping someone would notice that list!:smiley:

The problem with finally having someone from my list die is that now I want them all
DEADDEADDEAD!

Not enough to break the rules and actually do some in myself though.

Sacrificing some chickens, maybe - but other than that

We still have almost 4 weeks before submissions. What’s the rush?

Can I put kopek’s chickens on my list?
