Colin Rafferty Paradigm

Last changed 11/12 7:59P CDT

Hello. My name is Colin Rafferty. I have been involved in forensics for 20 years. I always enjoy giving back to the activity I love by judging at the Glenbrooks. I expect to see very fun debates and great adaptation from each of my debates. Speed: I believe that debate is a communication event. You should not spread in front of me. I understand that you have a lot to cover, but you can focus on being effective instead of being fast. If I am not taking notes, it is because I don't understand you. I default to policymaking because this is policy debate. Whichever side has the best option, will receive my vote. If there is some other metric in which I need to vote, it must be clearly explained and warranted. I feel comfortable voting for Topicality against non topical affirmatives. It is up to the negative however, to explain to me why voting for topicality is more important than voting for the case. In essence, I want you to have fun. Be clear, be conversational, and warrant your arguments. I look forward to seeing your rounds.
