Ryan Rhineer Paradigm

Last changed 2/15 2:55P MST

Hi, I'm Ryan! I am a former captain and current assistant coach from East High in Salt Lake City, Utah. [Insert obligatory High School Musical reference here.]

I am totally open to any argument. Seriously. Ks on either side are cool. T is cool. Performance is really cool. However, do not assume I am familiar with the lit. Always explain what you're talking about and treat it like it’s the start of something new. I value analytics and explicit voters over massive card dumps.

Utilitarianism is not a criterion if you don't explain what "good" you are providing the greatest amount of people in your framework.

Speed? Great! Word vomit? Not great. Get’cha head in the game.

I give speaks for presentation, creativity, and HSM references. Break free! Don’t stick to the status quo.

If a debater cites blatantly false information in-round, I will encase myself in a protective cocoon, in which I will remain for 29 years.

Disrespecting your opponent will result in the intervention of a very unhappy judge. Respect is not debatable. You gotta work this out.

TL;DR, use your best judgment, and you’ll bop to the top. Bet on it.
