    I'm gonna have to agree with Mr. Klein on this one. If anyone wants to talk to me about this, IM me at ericwright89. I'd really like to resolve any outstanding problems before UIL state.

    I made an error in judgement in bringing up an issue on cross-x.com that should have been brought up with coaching staff. For that I apologize. When I said we need to give clear lake the benefit of the doubt on this one, it was not meant to be an indicator either way of my confidence in my original accusation. Just a concession that it is pointless to continue discussing it. As far as irreparable damage to clear lake's credibility, etc, i think the community is smarter than that. People read over other's shoulders, etc all the time. Clear Lake has a long history of success; one that is obviously still continuing, given their success at TFA state. I hope there are no more hard feelings between any members of the Clear Lake Coaching staff of Debate team and myself or anyone else from my squad. If anything else needs to be done to repair that damage, let me know. rowedan@gmail.com dan
  3. Any Ideas on what to do with the caselist now? Update with the new affs?

    After consulting with my coach and the TFA constitution, we've decided to take no more action on this issue. We are going to have to agree to disagree on all of it as neither side can prove anything. All we can do is give Clear Lake the benefit on the doubt on this one. I understandably sound like a sore loser in bringing this up, and that's fine if you all feel that way. No arguments here, however, do not be under the impression that I felt I should have won that debate round. I conceded a heg flow in the 2nr and they extended offense. The point of my posts on this thread was not to complain about losing the ballot, only to point out an act that I thought was unethical. Take that for what its worth.

    This guy isn't on our debate team, So whether he lost is irrelevant.

    I'll spot you that I made strategic mistakes in conceding offense on heg if you spot me your team cheated and misrepresented evidence.

    That sounds like a swell idea.

    Hmm... This is getting out of hand. We can talk about it tomorrow at the tournament. It's sleep time.
  9. Hey everyone, Some teams decided not to post what aff they run in the caselist, so start updating new affs and stuff you hear here if they aren't in the casebook. I'll go first Clearlake MZ "reads" a "Telemedicine" aff. I'm still not sure what it is as they didn't really explain it. The terms E-medicine was used a lot. From what I understand, its some sort of infrastructure that allows doctors and sick people to communicate about health care across sub-saharan africa. They have an AIDS advantage 2ac stuff A few "specific" link turns on politics that talk about how congress feels about telemedicine. (The ones they read in our debate were specific to US telemedicine, not providing it to Africa) Their US key "warrant" is something about how the US already has military bases with this technology or some crap, but if you read the un-underlined parts it talks about how international groups help just as much. And even if that isn't true, the fact the infrastructure is there now is a reason that any other country would solve, because all the plan does is provide more money and assistance. Their other US key warrant is International Fiat bad. 1AR tricks: read lots of new arguments

    According to everything I've heard, they're banishing round 2 from all of existence, so their will only be four rounds.

    Card clipping is when you have a card (or more, or all of them in your 1ac) highlighted and then don't actually read all of the highlighted portion. Superbadass card clippers then go on to deny that they did this when asked.

    Question: Is card clipping all the sudden okay?
  13. What? Who has better evidence than you?
  14. Hmm... Why is this in the Texas forum...?
  15. I'm not tired of it! If anyone feels inclined to compliment me or anything in conversations with david, just save it up and send it to my new email-- dan_self_esteem_boost@gmail.com
  16. daved mullins is a topicality charlatan.
  17. Alright, its sent out. lemme know if there's any problems.
  18. Edit: give it more than a half hour. Still working out some bugs
  19. Hey everyone. Thanks a lot to all of you that submitted your cites. A few notes: Everyone has their own fun way of formatting their cites, so to save time, i didn't mess with that, so some of the page breaks will be awkward and the margins may be messed up a bit and what not, but all of the cites I got are in there, and I indexed it. Sorry about that If you sent in your cites and you either are not in the casebook, or you have not recieved a copy in your email in the next half hour, email or call me ASAP and i'll fix the problem. rowedan@gmail.com 5127405734 Also, this one just includes all the cites that i recieved via email up until today. Next weekend I'm going to send out a Second wave which will include: Affs i will pull from the other national caselists for teams that are attending but did not submit Any new submissions i get this week. And, The negative casebook at this point is not very large. I actually only recieved about 4 emails for it, so you people who sent your neg cites will get those four things later today, but hopefully by the second wave, more people will submit. Thanks dan
  20. By "tonight" I meant about 4 today
  21. Sorry for the delay everyone. All the cites are in and I am compiling them right now. Should be sent out by tonight. thanks for being patient. And, I'm not sure whats wrong with that error message, but if anyones still having trouble, send it to my personal email rowedan@gmail.com dan
  22. Hey everyone, A lot of people went to Berkley/Harvard this weekend, so I'm extending the deadline one more day to allow some teams who've been too busy to get their cites in. So, tomorrow by midnight. thanks
  23. The skills session schedule is a lot like it is during the camp, except instead of afternoon labs, there are more debates. I can't remember the schedule exactly, but it includes upwards of three debates per day with different things they focus on-- aff pressure, neg pressure, etc.
  24. If david aproves, then you are correct sir
