                Rules
              • Each participant is to draft 10 famous people who they believe will die in the next year. You may not draft a pick if someone else already has.
              • Picks must die between January 8th 2017 and December 31st, 2017 and be confirmed dead by January 6th 2018.
              • All picks eligibility (as far as being famous enough) are subject to the common sense of a simple majority (50%+1) of the participants PRESENT (or dialed in) AT THE DRAFT. Generally speaking, picks must be famous for something other than being old / ill / tall / short, etc. Picks *cannot* be on death row. Local celebrities (e.g., Ron Magers, the Menards Guy, Virginia McCaskey) are welcome. Furthermore:
                • The spouse/parent/child of a famous person does not qualify unless that person is famous on their own. (i.e. Hillary Clinton, yes. Roger Ebert's daughter, no).
                • Just because someone is mentioned on wikipedia or another webpage, they are not necessarily famous.
                • Just because someone is famous in some other part of the country / world does not make them famous in Chicago.
                • The 'definition' of famous is: 'informed Chicagoans would be familiar with.'
                • Any pick which was approved in the previous year's contest is automatically eligible for draft this year unless struck down before the draft begins.
              • The participant with the most points at the end of the DP16 year wins. 0 point picks (100 or older) are tie-breakers
              • It is the responsibility of the participant to research and keep track of the demise of his picks
