Introduction

I debated for three years at Bentonville High School, Arkansas in every style of debate. I did most of my national-level competition in LD and PF. I do not debate in college currently.

Generally, I am open to most styles/arguments. I would consider myself to be a flow judge so keep track of the line by line of arguments. BE ORGANIZED.

I will listen to anything. This is your debate. Talk about what YOU believe in. Be respectful. DO NOT use homophobic, racist, sexist, ableist, transphobic, xenophobic, etc. speech. I don't tolerate blatant disrespect. My preferences to specifics are listed below:

Speed

Be as fast as you want, but the second I stop flowing know you are unclear. I will yell "clear" twice, after that it is on you. I am totally cool with speed and the lack thereof. Generally speaking, be respectful of the usage of speed and be as clear as you can be.

Kritiks

Okay, kritiks aren't always the way to go in LD but I am totally fine with their correct implementation. I know most kritiks but DO NOT fall victim to the lack of explanation on said K. Be clear about your link and give me a really solid impact. Make sure the K alt interacts with the affirmative's solvency.

Topicality

Topicality is procedurally important. I need a clear, organized topicality debate. Don't just go back and forth reading and rereading definitions. Give me good standards and voters and have solid clash on those.

Framework

Framing is very important in an LD round. Your framework (or lack thereof) is what I will use to decide the round. Make sure that you can achieve your value through your criterion. Framework should be continued well into the last speech. Don't waste your time on it, but don't undercover it.

Case

I love solid case debate. Don’t assume I will flow your 1AC throughout the round if you aren’t extending it. Case debate is fundamental in a judge’s decision-making, especially in policy-oriented rounds. That being said, please cover offcase positions as well. Just don’t kick your case to the curb in the process.

Evidence

Make sure your evidence is legitimate. I will call for any card that I deem questionable and value the integrity of said pieces of evidence. Be cautious of this.

Email Chains

Personally, I prefer an email chain over flashing. I would like to be included in these email chains if they are in use.

All in all, good luck! I am thrilled to see the talent you all possess be put into motion this weekend.

If you have any questions prior to the round email me at rylieslone@gmail.com.
