^Well I`ll be sure to not give you that debate topic PA! tongue.gif

The above scenario you provided us with could easily happen to any debater, its simply the luck of the draw. Even though you may know more about the topic and have immediate access to more information on it it doesn`t necessarily mean that you will win the debate.

Fair enough.  Chances are the debates won't be so specialised either.  I guess it doesn't really matter anyway, since I didn't intend on losing any of my debates, LOL.

^^Yah, I see what you mean.  a good debator can find the info, but sometimes there's things just not available to the average person, even with extensive googling.

For example, if a debate was started: Stanislavsky vs Meyerhold, which is the better system, most people wouldn't know what the hell it was.  The info on the net will give you SOME knowledge, but not anywhere near an extensive list.  As opposed to myself who's studied these guys at uni for 3 years, have books full of them, articles with highlighted quotes just ready at my fingertips, a uni library full of rare books you can't get elsewhere on them.  

Not only do I have a wealth of knowledge that other people would not, I know the strengths and weaknesses of each of their systems already, I don't need to do a heap of research.

If you know what I mean.

Okay everyone over the next few weeks the debate tournament is finally going to be set-up.
There are eight remaining leaguers so I will need to get you to reaffirm your interest and ability to compete through pm's which jen and I will send out. If any aren`t able to compete then one or more of the other members who signed up here will take his/her's place.

The eight remaining leaguers have all been sent a pm in regards to joing the first debate tournamnet here on UM.

So far we have had Glacies, Abecrombie, Subtemperate, Paranoid Android and Frogfish all reaffirm their interest in this competition.

Kryso however will be unable to participate so one of our new applicants will take his place.

Once all eight have responded we will either get started immediately with the tournament or fill the vacancies with new applicants. thumbsup.gif
