I will not judge a CX round on who is the most flamboyant speaker, I will judge it based on the merit of the case and the argumentation techniques used by the debaters.

Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: Tabula Rasa
Policy priority: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
Evidence philosophy: Quality of evidence is more important than quantity of evidence
Paradigm: I walk into a CX round with a clean slate. The round will be judged on which squad presents the best arguments, I expect debaters to provide tough analysis of evidence presented in the round. Spreading is fine, as long as you're coherent. Any argument that is presented and carried throughout the round will be considered in my vote. If arguments are dropped they will not be considered. Finally, any type of argument and clash is fine. I will examine k's, cp's, da's, and stock issue arguments equally.
