Just an idea that I'm throwing out there.

Basically the idea is that if the opponent team talks to the judge about anything but debate. They are favored by that judge.

If they are favored by the judge then the judge cannot vote on this round.

I'm not sure how you can use this but maybe if you didn't like the aff you could have more time.

This is not a K. This is a theory argument.

 

Except now I'm wondering if all theory arguments are a form of K.

That's why you run framework and theory, so you can explain to the judge how the debate should be construed.

 

Anything that makes you feel like the debate is unfair or biased, that's when you run theory.

This is an interesting thought... and I may be inclined to agree. I do know that is basically how they teach Theory in LD camps these days. That of course doesn't make it right!

I agree with your general point, but really...

 

Theory = theoretical objectection

 

So people object to certain arguments, types of argument, ethics or tactics, but not limited to the basis of fairness. There may be other reasons to have a theoretical objection to something in round. The typical major categories of theory impacts are education, skills and gaming.
