Crystal Crank Paradigm
Makayla Dashner Paradigm
Baine Dikeman Paradigm
On Topicality- It is a fine argument for negative strategy and is one I would vote on it.
On Counterplans- These are also fine, but the net benefit must be strong. I would also like to see how the CP is better based on the Aff's solvency.
On Kritiks- Not a huge fan because they are not explained well typically. It is not something I would typically vote on, unless the alternative is good enough and the Neg fully understands what they are running.
Generics are fine, so long as there is a solid analytic to link.
On speed- Spreading is fine, however, I would appreciate it if the tag lines to cards were slowed and articulated well- thanks.
If theory and framework are stated in the round, I will more than likely follow that framework. So, both teams need to address those topics. It is not my favorite thing to judge, but if it is brought up, I will follow it.
If the debaters have any questions about the paradigm before the round, they are free to ask.
