The lineup in this round is OUTSTANDING! I'm VERY happy with the decision to add another round to the tournament so that we could have 24 debaters- it's really given us a very up-in-the-air tournament... and round 3- holy cow. I'm starting to look at what the matchups could be depending on the outcomes in this round, and most of them put me at a complete loss for any kind of projection.

Topic: Performance-enhancing substances help athletes give the fans what they want, and should be allowed in professional sports, with strong prescription controls in place to limit the associated risks.


I like this one. Bring your A-game sublime, it's on!

I too am excited for this one. I like any topic where there are actually sources. I'm not strong at just making up ideas off the top of my head, there has to be some backing.

I can find info on this for sure. Should be fun GAOTU.

whatukno v Memoryshock
Topic: Marriages between partners who can conceive children together are superior to those in which conception is for some reason impossible.

Oh dude just back out now if I get the pro side to this debate.
I am going to bring it on in such a way that I would make Hillary and Obama cry.


Gotta get some saber rattling in here don't I?

I can't wait for round 2 now. Thank god they didn't give us some mind thing. I surmise from your suggested topics that your some sort of psychologist?

You're not ready to debate EITHER side of the issue? There are some that you can't(try debating for more gun control) but not this one imo.

Bring your A game man, this one could go either way. Be prepared.

I could make a logical case for the con side of this issue. But being a father myself I got personal experience on my side for this.


A game? Heck no this is a B game round. I won't be bringing my A game until I get to the finals. This requires half ass wukky,

Just think of me as the Eli Manning of the ATS debate world. Underestimated unappreciated and yet i'm still taking home the pennant.


Dang writing checks my butt can't cash is fun.

Just remember Guys and Gals...

The list is posted and if your name appears first, you argue the PRO side of the debate issue...

WUK, you are PRO on your debate...

Pssstt....*whispers*....the Fighter listed first is the pro side...that's you...


*Grins*

I can't wait to see what you toss at me. I should warn you though....I gots legs. And are you suggesting that Hilary and Obama should be considering something together? I am wary of the immediate political tinge....

More of a victim than a degree holder. I was on the other side of application and wanted to know myself. So I went looking for answers. Long story, no need for it now.....

I wasn't expecting to get any of the topics I suggested...it wouldn't have been fair to anyone.....

Here's looking forward to seeing what you're made of, whatukno...


Don't take it too hard...

2 debates at once? Ohh the thought! I would have to let Microsoft Sam handle that debate. Cause I just wrote a heck of a lot of Hot checks here that I hope won't bounce

Could it be a humorous debate? Something light hearted? I am all for the idea but I don't know about anything too serious right now. The serious side of my brain is now engaged in round 2 of the debates. The side of my brain that wants to hook up a cow's udder to a paint mixer to see if you can get it to squirt out butter is all good to go though.

I am all for a debate if it's not too serious.

No way, TheDuckster...


His full ATS attention is the tournament for now.....


Why not see if FreeThinkerIdealist is up for a go? You could send a u2u...as well you could u2u some of the other fighters.....

whatukno...



Edit to Add: Not that I would stop you if you wanted to, whatukno...
My expression above reflects my opinion as a member of the tournament.....
