Two of these have Wikipedia pages, so I know who they are now, although I have to question their "fame". The third (Lynn Johnson) does not, so I have no idea who they are.

Quote:
(5) Fame Disqualification: To encourage players to submit Celebs who are sufficiently famous for use in this pool, the following guidelines will be used to disqualify specific entries:
  • If a Celeb's death occurred more than 7 days ......
  • If a player submits a Celeb pick that other players feel is too obscure, they may issue a challenge. If the challenge is upheld by a 2nd player, that Celeb will be disqualified. If this disqualification occurs before the 1/1 start date, the owning player will be allowed to update their list.
I'm challenging Lynn Johnson.

Re: 2017 Dead Pool

I don't know who LJ is. Heck, it might be the poster's ex-wife for all I know. If others know who that is and they're famous - awesome! Point it out and I'll withdraw my challenge.

Re: 2017 Dead Pool

Okay.... if the poster can at least clarify which of the several Lynn Johnsons they're referring to, I'll go with that. If there's a Wikipedia page for her, she's probably famous enough.

Re: 2017 Dead Pool

Sorry, should have been Lynn Johnston, the For Better or For Worst cartoonist.

Gordon Downie is the lead singer of The Tragically Hip.

R. Crumb is considered the pioneer of underground comics, as well as the subject of one of the most well regarded documentaries of the last 30 years.

I can't see how any of these people would be considered "not famous", and their passing will all be covered widely in the media.

The Crumb documentary that Criterion released on dvd and blu ray is a good one.

Re: 2017 Dead Pool

How is Rob Kardashian allowed? He's not accomplished in any field and he's only known because he is the relative of Kim and Kloe. I'm not challenging anything but just curious to the criteria of being famous.

If we were going strictly on a point scale (110- age) I would just pick a bunch of gangsta rappers.

R. Crumb is pretty well known. His death would definitely make the news broadcasts. Has a very distinctive art style that is instantly recognizable. Fritz the Cat, Keep On Truckin' posters and t-shirts, Cheap Thrills album cover.

Re: 2017 Dead Pool

I'd say R. Crumb is maybe the most recognized comic book creator who isn't Stan Lee.

In the case of Gord Downie his band The Tragically Hip are as famous as Led Zeppelin or The Beatles in Canada they are that big.

That's a good point. But then again, the entire Kardashian family (as well as Paris Hilton before them) are all famous merely for being famous, after all.

I wouldn't go that far. Zep and The Beatles are much more popular than the Hip.
