Due to the amount of moaning and backbiting caused by Ancient Mariners winning Kevvies every time (even though they don't) and finding a gap in the programme due to potential drunkenness over Xmas, New Year I find I have to introduce a Special Event.
Ancient Mariners have agreed to a challenge by the top scorers from the Deca, both male and female ( cos they are crap). This amazing competition is invitation only but I will allow you to look on and cheer.

Ladies will be represented by Amalia, Ajax, Daft Thistle and Rmcmanus.
Chaps (and eventual winners) by Saguinora, Quiz2000, Jmax and Kevg.
Mariners as always, Nemesis, BBI, tob39 and Jackson

Nemesis has kindly allowed me to use his statistics to verify these teams, all complaints to him !!
If anybody feels that their particular talents are being ignored please pm me and I'll see if you warrant a team.

Brainoffs will be played 26/27/28 Dec and 2/3 Jan, Random 15 questions.

Any coherent comments welcomed.

The statistics for 2012 (so far) on which the team selections have been made can be found at



They are in Google Docs and there should be viewing access to everyone. If you can't see them then please PM me (although I'm unsure what I'll be able to do!).




Decathlon Statistics






The cumulative averages for the Christmas teams are:

Ancient Mariners 7308
The Chaps 7158
Femme Fatales 6782

It promises to be a very close contest!

Looks like I just missed the cut.

I do seem to hold the record for the most Decathlon brainoffs played in the All time stats.

As we go, might I point out a fact...

On a four on four basis, like the Kevvie, the stats say that this if a forlorn exercise.

But things might tend to equal a little if the amount of challenges rises.

Just a point of note mind you......I have no idea about how this is supposed to work.

Statistics are such fun - love number crunching!!!

I started playing in 2009 and my top position was 26 that year. Every year since my top position has been consistently 23. Wonder if I can climb up to a lofty 22 next year.

But your average per brainoff is steadily rising so I'm sure you'll break the top twenty next year.

Damn it! The postman didn't deliver my invitation! I'll have him flogged!

Anyhow, as for moaning and backbiting - there hasn't really been much of that. From what I've seen from my ivory tower, it's a one man lynch mob. In my experience, you don't need to do anything special to take care of a mob that small - just set the dogs on them.

Seriously, though, good luck to organisers and participants alike. I'll man the pumps and try and make sure the site stays alive for the whole week.

Thanks Nem :)

I hadn't looked at that column - I feel much better now having gone from 1242 to 1384 average!

Whoo Hoo!!!

Anyhow - will watch the Christmas comp with keen interest :)

I tried to get you to play the 50th Decathlon Doc, but you wouldn't have it. That could have qualified you (provided you averaged more than jmax!).

Oh yeah, and I wouldn't have had this either. :)

I was just being silly. Don't mind me.

I should point out each team will play t'others twice a day making 20 brainoffs each in all for the week. An arduous schedule I'm sure you will agree, sort the men out from the boys and leave the women far behind !!

And while the men and the boys are 'sorting it' out the back the women will cruise home!
