Derby Dead Pool is an on-line competition for those picked celebrities by a competitor who will not make it to the end of this year. Some celebrities did not get any obits that is British or have not picked by any team this year, that is List of the Lost and List of the Missed.

The Man in Black will host the DDP for two World Cups, South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014. There is a new host in 2015.

Each year there is a scoring system. From 1996-2006 it's an all-ages scoring and for those picks over 80, it's taking away a point. From 2007 to present, there is a "No Kids" scoring system. In 2014's competition, Kirsty Howard will be picked again if she is 18 and above. Originally 2006 and 2007 would both have the "No Kids" scoring system, but competitors picked kids during the years.

  • Every December, the Man in Black says that the DDP entry is open until the end of December, and the beginning of the new year!
  • Anyone picks a kid (e.g. Yulia Lipnitskaya in 2014 DDP), they may need to harm you from playing the DDP.
