I had already submitted my team for 2007, Ford was on it. Doesn't bother me because I got him this year.
So now my replacement pick, Bernard Manning, is in the team. I was watching some comedy show over christmas and was regretting leaving him off my list. He looks ready to go. Perhaps it's a sign.

Then again, does Jesus perform miracles like this, killing off someone so a better pick can be put on...

Well, one has to wonder.

Only yesterday, I posted here that I needed one of my 2006 lot who was also on my 2007 list to die so I could put Bandar in - that's only, after the rule changes et al, two of them - Papon & Ford. Lo & behold, Fordy goes.


It may not rank with the loaves & fishes, but it's a pretty decent minor miracle by my book. :P

Not entirely sure what you're all on about, but I just wanted to add my own two cents' worth and say that for the first time ever, I've submitted a DDP team - hurrah!

I double-checked this year's teams and saw that there are several that did not score any points at all, so I feel that I will at least have some company down at the bottom of the league at the end of 2007. :lol:

Guess I'm going to actually read this thread from now on... :pop:

Happy New Year, folks!

It's my first time too, and I am always crap at competitions so I may well find myself residing at the bottom with you. Good luck!

Oh, I just got everyone a little distracted politically and sociologically. The thread is ponderously swinging back to its normal focus and if my side conversation keeps on I suspect MH will pull my crap out and start another thread.

In the meantime, I have less than six hours to finish my lists. Ciao people!

Tied 21st with seven hits and 31 points. Last year I was tied for 14th place, with 8 hits and 32 points.

Extrapolating that, 2007 should land me tied for 28th place with 6 hits and 30 points. Perhaps the new scoring system causes some trouble there, but it's as good a prediction as any.

Hein

Looks like I finish 6th in this years DDP, not too bad.

Well done TF - with that old team of yours I had an idea you would do very well. Watch out for the new age ranges you can't think the same tactic next year will get the same results.

Dammit - I entered my team a few days ago, including Marc Almond, and lo and behold, the blighter is on Jools Holland bopping away like there's no tomorrow, not 30 minutes into the New Year.

A bizarre choice, I must admit. Considering she was swimming with sharks recently, it doesn't look likely she'll die soon. But I'll guess we will see.

Otherwise, a pretty strong team, I admit.

I'm out to win, not much point in entering if you're not really trying.

Indeed, but the main aim of the game is to guess who may die in the next year.
By selecting those with set execution dates, it does detract from the main purpose of the game.

I'm not going to say any more. I've already been horribly rude to one member over this issue last week.

Picked for pancreatic cancer or thinking he'll suicide over the recent federal investigation? If it's the former, he's very much cured. If it's the latter, I say to cheers to you if the prediction comes true.

My list is not going to be nearly as strong, but hopefully fun. No Grove and no al-Bandar since I'd never heard of them if it weren't for all this.

Who's your joker by the way? Grove I'm assuming?
