Abraham Corrigan Paradigm

Last changed 11/25 2:02P UTC

*Updated November 2019*

Hi, I am Abraham Corrigan. I debated for 4 years in high school at HF & GBS, then for 4 years at Gonzaga, then I coached debate for Northwestern, University of Kentucky, Wake Forest & a bunch of different high schools. I took about 3 years off to work as a paralegal at a lawfirm in Chicago that focused on police and prison misconduct. I am back as of 2019-2020 as an assistant coach at GBS.

Pronouns - him/he

Here are some things to consider when deciding if you want to pref me;

- I will almost never evaluate fairness based affirmative framework arguments. I think probably about 95% of what happens on both sides of the framework debate is meaningless and not helpful for deciding the debate one way or the other.

- Theory arguments are reasons to reject the argument, not the team. The only exception is conditionality. That being said, I usually conclude that conditionality is good and that the affirmative gets to advocate permutations as a reciprocal advantage to the negatives ability to read conditional cps.

- Cross-x is my favorite part of the debate. It's the only time where you can make your opponents to account for the things they say. I flow it.

- I will not read your evidence to help you. If I read your evidence it is either to resolve a factual dispute over what a card says, or to see if it is worth getting the cite/liberating for a team I coach.

- I generally really enjoy judging and attempt to keep up with the literature and commonly read arguments.

- I am working on being less grumpy about people not carefully reading my judging philosophy.
