Two weeks of 2018 left so time to get entries in for this. This comp has gone from strength to strength the last two years and I’m sure will only get bigger. Perhaps 2019 will be third time lucky for OneOne?

Rules:
- List 10 people (celebrities preferably) who will kick the bucket in 2019
- Bragging rights only but the younger the person the higher the kudos
- No people with already known death dates (eg death row inmates) OR with pre-existing terminal illnesses where death is likely in 2019


Best of luck!

I'm still undecided on entering this year. The administration of the competition is not up to scratch. I think we need regular YTD leaderboards. Weekly if I'm doing well. Six monthly if Saintly is. Also a prize. Maybe you could put up one of your many bonus bets you accumulate E&E ?

Not a bad idea. Will put up a $20 bonus bet to the winner. Anyone else feel free to contribute. I will come up with a proper scoring system shortly. Each person to calculate their own score st the end of the year - we’re in the honour system b

Scoring:
- A correct selection = 10pts
- Bonus pts = 100 minus age at death (eg a 75 year old score 100-75=25 bonus points). NOTE: If your selection is over 100 you will lose points here.

White rappers should be a good scoring option here.

Okay let me see, now who do I know that is visiting a Saudi Arabian embassy in Turkey...… no have not got a name yet, but give me time.

Graham Richardson (natural causes)
Prince Philip (old age)
Bob Hawke (medical episode)
John Laws (medical episode)
Donald Trump (anything the CIA/MILTARY INDUSTRY comes up with)
John Ibrahim (assassinated)
Mick Gatto (all the horse heads are coming home to roost, with his European brethren being caught)
Micheal Schumacher (this is a bet each way, because people with his injury go either way, better or worse, after the amount of time it has been for him since his accident)
Kirk Douglas (like every year where we say the Storm will miss the finals, it has to happen one year)
I want to say a former athlete who has done steroids, but which one do we chose. I will take a stab in the dark (that pun, was not intended), alright I will go with Barry Bonds US baseball.

Many others could be chosen, actually my reserve would be Julian Assange, if he was asked to leave the Ecuadorian embassy, which it looks like may happen sometime next year.

Happy tipping everyone   
Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise

Yes I know he has leukaemia, but I believe it’s not terminal and death is not expected in next 12 mths.
