Okay lets go through this. Wheeler kid, stop acting like a douche to someone who has pumped her life into debate. You just want to argue with people because you are pubescent and hormonial...suppress those feelings until the weekend.
Novice is NOT broken. Teams like Columbus, Trion, Even your school, are getting kids out of novice faster and into more competitive rounds because of this system. The system doesn't need checks, the kids get the basics of debate and they move on to learn advance debating....Why are you bitching about a system that 1) you have no influence in changing or even maintaining, and 2) that you don't even compete in.
That's not the only way. Some elitist college debater who already knows how he/she is going to vote, doesn't help. I am a college debater, I teach debaters, and half of them don't even listen to what I am saying, much less comprehend it and use it as an actual debate argument.
O ya, that's the Cross-X 101 class I took....don't you see. okay find me a 200 page growth good file on cross-x. go.....
Yes, 300 football teams with the same playbook would compete. It would be a rat race to see who completed those 300 plays faster and more efficiently. A rat race just like to debate. Kids will have to learn to debate the warrants. You know nothing about financial and evidence situations of other schools....don't assume anything. I can 10 schools with more evidence and less money than your school.
gloat a little?.....
If you would stop sounding like an arrogant, pompus jackass, you wouldn't be personally attacked. You are pissing off a lot of people kid, I suggest stop. And your aff is trash by the way.
Mrs. R, I'd like to apologize for ##### kid. As I was once the ######## person ever, I should say that it is very hard to realize your own arrogance in high school. This thread is a loaded topic meant to insight arguments.
