I am a very traditional judge. I don’t believe Kritiks offer anything valuable to argumentation.

I don’t like spreading. I believe it inhibits oratory and presentation skills.

I believe debate should provide students with transferable skills that can make them talented communicators and strong leaders. There is nothing about Kritiks or spreading that contributes to the big picture of competitive debate.

I don’t care about minor dropped points. Convince me through your argumentation, links, impacts, advantages and the power of persuasion and you will win the round.
