I was a traditional debater, and I continue that trend in my judging. I specifically look for solid value/criterion framework debate, with good clash. Don't try to make any limits or grounds arguments. Telling me to drop a contention, argument, or card from the flow will not make it so. Prove the argument is null and void first. Though I'm a traditional judge, if you want to run a kritik, go for it! I love a good k, despite its non-traditional nature. For the value/criterion framework, philosophers and political theorists are phenomenal resources for finding a framework. If you're going to use such a theory in your framework (e.g. Social Contract Theory) give some credit to the people who invented it. If I don't know who's theory you're using, it becomes much harder for me to judge how you apply your framework as a whole.

Aff:

I do not want to see any plans or solvency. This is LD, not PF or Policy. Don't bring them up yourself, and don't let Neg try and pressure you into offering one. You are under no requirement or obligation to offer any form of plan or solvency on the resolution.

Neg:

You have a seven minute 1NC - I expect you to start your offense in that speech. Your 2NR is not enough time to cover everything the Aff will be able to pile on against you. If you don't cover it in 1NC, and don't tell me you'll discuss it in your next speech, I will extend it through the flow.
