In Topic: Was The Rutgers Strategy Justified? (NDT Finals 2016-2017)

 I can get behind that too, but isn't that what k debate and especially performance debate is all about? I don't understand why Rutgers's mean-spirited approach was necessary to (and I'm sorry for phrasing it like this) access that impact.

I mean I think it's less about K debate and performance debate in the traditional sense, I think you're still thinking of it with the presuppositions of a debate framework. I think what Rutgers was saying was more along the lines of "this is all we have left, and by god we're gonna fucking take it as far as we have to until you realize just how pissed we are." It's a survival strategy of sorts. So I think that yeah, being mean is kind of necessary, because debate has kind of been mean to them.

 

However cede the political doesn't just apply to the state I cannot stress enough that the one reason I would not have done what Rutgers did is because ceding the political probably means you can't ever get anything done.

Also as an aside I feel like Cede the Political would've been fucking fire for the FW debate. Anyone with me here?

I wish the roast had been more of a roast, honestly. It consisted of nothing but pop culture references and assertions that "X looks like Y". 

Yeah no the roasting could've been better. The Keebler elf line got me though not gonna lie.

 

Also I don't get why people are saying the jokes were ableist like not really it was just saying "you're ugly" that's not ableist thats just mean stop trying to label everything.
