1. Anyone who subscribes to Ring Theory is eligible to enter. Entries must be emailed to both Eric (RaskinBoxing@yahoo.com) and Bill (dettloff@ptd.net) by Monday, Jan. 20.

2. Boxing figures who die between Jan. 21 and Dec. 31, 2014, will count toward the death pool. If you send in your death pool selections prior to Jan. 20 and someone on your list dies prior to Jan. 21, you will have the opportunity to replace your selection with a new, not-yet-dead selection.

3. Your list should include 10 names of people with the potential to die in 2014.

4. The people you pick must have an obvious and acknowledged connection to the boxing community (fighters, ex-fighters, officials, promoters, trainers, journalists, etc.), and they must be known to the average fan. In other words, you can’t pick some random trainer at your local gym who you happen to know is on death’s door. If your list includes a name that Raskin and Dettloff consider to be too obscure, we will let you know and give you the opportunity to send a replacement selection.

5. Points are scored when someone on your list dies, and are derived by subtracting the deceased’s age from the number 100. For example, if Jake LaMotta dies at age 92, that’s worth 8 points. If Mike Tyson dies at age 47, that’s worth 53 points.

6. Per a suggestion from one of our listeners, if a fighter dies in the ring (or in the hospital soon enough after for it to qualify as a “ring death”), it will not count toward the death pool. Even we have something resembling a standard of poor taste. So if you’re selecting an active boxer, you’re selecting him based on his potential to die in an outside-the-ring incident.

7. THERE WILL BE AN ACTUAL PRIZE FOR WINNING. The winner of the death pool will be awarded one free year of Ring Theory, effective the next time his annual subscription runs out following the end of the 2014 contest.

8. If you participate in this contest, there’s a good chance you’re going to hell, assuming you believe in hell. Consider yourself warned.
