Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 6
Judging approach: policy maker
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: equal
Paradigm: I'm a policymaker judge that values the Stock Issues. I like T arguements, and DA's, but they must be structured correctly in order for me to vote on it. If I don't flow it, it is not in the round, so watch your speed. I dislike rapid fire, and will put my pen down if i can't follow you. Eye contact is encouraged! Present clear and logical arguements, meaning if your DA ends with an impact of nucular war, I am less likely to buy it! I like real impacts! Keep it clean, and follow the rules of debate and lets have a good round.
