Yes I want to be on the chain: jamielwelch95@gmail.com

Since starting law school I haven't been as involved in debate. Even when I do research it is very light, so please don't assume I know the ins and outs of your arguments. I may not be familiar with certain acronyms and what nots that other people may be. All you should take from this is maybe a little more explanation is needed for me in comparison to a coach who is more involved with argument design.

Soft left affs: If your answer to disads is “but the framing page!” you will get very bad speaks and most likely lose. If you use your framing page and then also make specific arguments against the disad then you are in a better spot. Framing pages encourage lazy debating. Don’t be a lazy debater.

Theory – Conditionality is good. Lean neg on basically all theory because most amounts to rejecting the argument. I always believe in judge kick. I think it’s the affs job to tell me not to kick things and explain why.

Ks – Didn’t read a lot of Ks, but I think they are strategic arguments and necessary for the neg. I don't really care which K you read, it can be whatever you are comfortable with. If it has a well explained link and an impact then I will vote on it. I don’t think the alt has to solve anything. Winning links to the plan is best but if you win a link to other things the aff has done and it has an impact then I will vote on it.

FW/T – Fairness is an impact. Limits matter. That doesn’t mean because you don’t read a plan I won’t vote for you but rather what it means to be topical is up for debate. Without a solid interp of what “your model of debate” would look like I am less likely to vote on your impact turns. Give judge direction on how to evaluate your arguments versus things like topical version, switch side, procedural fairness, limits, etc.
