Judging Paradigm is Blank Slate. I will consider any position and evaluate on merit/evidence. Esoteric positions require more evidence weight and need to be linked in a compelling manner.
Don’t particularly like Topicality unless Affirmative is grossly non-topical. My view is that varsity level debaters should be prepared to debate and not resort to canned T unless absolutely necessary.
I think debate should be a clash of philosophies and will tend to tune out if the debate turns into a hash of fractured arguments.
