Same here ... and I'm also concerned that if it gets close, and The Roosters don't win again, and Trump is re-elected, PT may get so desperate that he would cheat ... Dead

Perhaps that is where you are going wrong Darl ...... try choosing people that you think might die during the year rather than people that you are hoping will die soon.




The unintelligent think this thread is about hoping people die and celebrating death. Those with a functioning brain know that it’s quite the opposite - it’s celebrating/remembering people’s lives while having some harmless fun.


Oh, so NOW it's "harmless fun" ... say the humorless hypocrites ...Wink




The irony of someone who couldn’t get enough of the thread the last two years suddenly deciding it’s all too dark and in poor taste only moments after being called out for making possibly the only poor taste comment of the entire 2019 thread is truly delicious.

What were you saying about hypocrites?


Wake up E&E, nobody else is putting up a prize if you can death ride some old codger over the next 12 months ... YOU are the hypocrite ... you couldn't be prouder!!!Star

On the other hand, I am very transparent and honest ... I find the game abhorrent and do not wish to play, because in 2 years I haven't picked a Censored winner!!!Cry

Yet it wasn’t abhorrent when you made your vile remarks about an ex-ALP premier. Thanks for the laughs bozo!

Proving my point about the unintelligent nicely Doc! Stick to posting your memes all day on Facebook, it’s right at your level.

If you are playing the game and genuinely hoping these people cark it then that says more about you.

If you go through and read the previous year’s threads you will find the vast majority of the posts are from people celebrating the lives and achievements of those who have died. It is almost all positive. Infact I can only remember one post from anyone actually cheering someone’s death.

There are a few posts from people tongue in cheek mentioning their score but the reality is this comp is a sideshow to the main purpose of the thread.


I think that was me EE, and it was when George H Bush finally left us, and I will post it again, I hope he is enjoying his cell downstairs with the horned one!
Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise

Who’s caring about people being offended? That would be you dopey. Only seconds after posting the only offensive post in the thread.

Stalker? That’s cute!
If you had a stalker you would have known about it long before now. Just consider it one of several to follow the trail a clueless melon head left for all to see.

You would not be Robinson Cruscoe not knowing any rappers, I would think 90% of the entrants would not know any either.

Ok - I've decided to join the party. Only because the thought of collecting a $20 bonus Bet from E&E is worth $1000 to me in real terms. Also Saintly going MIA is great news.

 Jane Fonda won't cark it...she's too full of botox and wrinkle filler...then again, maybe she's already gone and we just can't see it. 

 One more wife would do Singo in...wouldn't it?

 this thread definitely shows up people's true colours...anyone wanting the death of a teenager who is following her heart and has principles, demonstrates the nominator has neither...

Completely agree about Jane Fonda.Thumbs Up
Hasnt Singo got a young woman on his arm at present, or at least much younger than him? A bit of wrinkle filler wouldnt do him any harm either LOL
Putting Alex McKinnon on that list is horrible, and way off key.  Why would you do that ?  Just because he is in a wheel chair ?
