Create a chain for constructives, online debate sucks

PF Paradigm

Experience

Debated for 3 years at Westwood High School

UTD '25

General

* Debate is a game, I'm not a policy maker

* Tech > Truth

* Cut cards, Strike me if you don't

* auto drop for racism/sexism/homophobia or anything I deem problematic that can make the debate space unsafe for others. If you are, auto loss with 25s.

Rebuttal

* Line by line

* Always respond to turns/disads

* Framing is good

Summary

* definitely the most important speech in the round

* Warrant extensions should exist especially with 3-minute summaries

* Collapse pls

Final Focus

* Hella weighing, that's the easiest path to my ballot

* Implicate everything and do comparative interaction on the warrant/link/and impact level

* I don't buy sticky defense

Evidence

* Evidence is very sketchy in pf so if they tell me to call for a piece of evidence I will probably call for it

* Cut cards are preferred and get you +1 speaks

Speaks

* I start at a 28 and go up and down from there

* Good strategy in round will get you higher speaks and bad extensions and behavior will get you lower speaks

* Saying protention instead of contention when you are on the aff will garner +0.5 speaks.

Speed

* I am okay with speed but if you are spreading I should get a speech doc and you should send one to the opponents too

Default

* I always default neg unless a presumption arg is read

Progressive Arguments

* Go for it, I am fine with theory and K's

* If you want to run progressive arguments, please run them correctly

* CPs are fine too

* I love non-t affs

LD Paradigm

* Everything is fine but I probably won't understand high theory

* Everything above applies

* Tricks are bummy, you probably shouldn't run them

* I really like CPs and Ks, please run them

If you have any questions ask before the round

Also, If there is anything I can do to make the round more accessible, please let me know before the round :)
