Im Madi.

put me on the email chain: madighancrowley@gmail.com

I’m currently a varisty fourth year debater at Lake Highland Prep.

The short version is: I believe that debate is a space for debaters to have fun and enjoy themselves, which means that I am open to anything you want to read. If you enjoy the utilz, go ahead and larp. If you prefer Ks, read Ks. If you are good at phil, read phil. I’m fine with flowing speed, but please slow down on tags, things you think are important, and whenever I say “clear." Also, if you are sexist,racist,homophobic,and just plain rude I will tank your speaks.

I tried to read a little bit of everything (high theory, performance, policy args, other Ks, theory/T, tricks, framework, reps, etc.) So I’m comfortable judging a lot of positions.

If you are reading a position that you think is slightly confusing, or that took you awhile to learn, chances are I will think its confusing too. Please, please, please slow down to explain it.

I want clear extensions with claim, warrant and impact. If the argument was conceded I will be more lenient.

I determine speaks based on how well I think you will do at the tournament. I also determine speaks based on how fun you make the round.

Remember to weigh!!!

Defaults:

These are what I default to if no weighing or arguments in favor of the other side were made in the round. These are all subject to change if you just make arguments.

theory before K

fairness 1st

competing interps

Truth testing (what it means for the res to be “true” or “false” can be determined through consequential impacts or rotb)

drop the arg

Some judges that i want to be: Tom Evnen, Becca Traber, Grant Brown, and Julia Wu.
