NDT 2019 First Round, Octos. CEDA Semis.


1. i think line by line as a guideline for the structure of flowing is effective, but obviously is not the only way to structure a debate.


2. i dont like overviews much. i think embedded clash is difficult for me to


3. flashing does not count as prep, but you need to be efficient and not excessive about it.


K: this is where i'm most comfortable. in college i have had much more experience and am much more familiar with foucault, antiblackness/afropess, anthro, cap, talkin about asians, etcwhatever. i am less familiar with stuff further towards the pomo lit - while i think some of these arguments are convincing and am more than willing to vote on them, you need to do a little more to contextualize your arguments in these debates.i think a lot of pomo arguments are weakest on the impact comparison level.

K affs/nontraditional affs/what white people call "performance teams": im good for these. i think you should generally do something - my threshold for voting negative on presumption seems to drop lower and lower the more i debate - and explanations in cross ex help particularly if you focus on epistemology/knowledge production. what does my ballot do?

T: i think you need substantial explanation of your impacts espec. if youre going for a grounds or limits impacts - im particularly convinced by caselists for examples of topical affs. i think interp debating is more important than people give it credit for - using warrants of your evidence in comparison to the 2ac c/i will help put you ahead. not afraid to vote on stupid t interps if the aff mishandles them.


fw: since this is really what you're here to see, ill make it short. fw is an interesting tool that can be utilized effectively if read in the right debate. i think the block should spend time articulating specific abuse and why it implicates your ability to debate instead of generic blocks. i think ties to the topic are generally good. i think topical versions of the aff are something people should be going for more in the 2nr. i also think the largest reason i vote aff against fw is because the 2nr fails to extend an impact, and when they do, it's usually a terrible one. you need to contextualize and do impact calc with fw impacts the same as others - comparison and explanation.

i default to competing interps.

to quote allan xu: "i think i'm 51/49 against framework (ie i'd vote aff in a tie) but my bias is SUPER easily overcome by good debating."

DA: these are cool. i think DAs provide an opportunity for a lot of very specific and cool link stories. i think the part people suck the most at is the internal link debate - you need to explain to me why you access your impact before i can hook it up with a ballot. evidence comparison and specific link analysis helps with this.

ptx da: i used to hate these. tbh i still kinda do. i figure people are gonna read it anyway bc core neg ground and whatever. whatever.


CP: these are cool.explain specific net benefits and concrete forms of competition. a lot of these debates end up being about theory. if this is the case, read your blocks more slowly. its hard to flow theory at spreading speeds, especially if you think you're gonna go for a specific argument in a later speech.
