Re: TDL XI: MANY A PRINCE, BUT ONLY ONE A KING - THE RESULTS
Wow, don't know how I pulled through there, let alone WIN. My debate had obvious flaws, which were pointed out expertly by each of the judges. I'll tidy that shit up next time. Fair play to STEVIE and sami for their debates too. I think the reason I was SO down on my debate after submitting it was the fear of the level of competition that each of you can bring to the table. I was demanding perfection from myself, and when I didn't get it, I was legitimate worried. You each make me step my game up, so hats off to the both of you.
Other thoughts / musings:
- DDMac and ANDRE, Thank you for showing the world how to debate. World-class. This actually goes out to Bulk as well. GODDAMN 5 STARS FROM ANDRE!?!
- TLK absolutely FEEDING SHG, as a CHAMPION does. I admire SHG's effort and gumption to take on the CHAMP (and it was a good debate, too), but TLK's on that next level shit. Well played.
- MoveMent with the win! MoveMent with the win!
- I've been noticing you, CGS and BOLO. Some upper-echelon quality AND consistency coming from both of you lately.
- SPORTS DIVISION, A MODEST PROPOSAL: Seabs, fire MrMister from the judge's ranks. Hell, give him paid vacation from all future cards. I volunteer myself to judge anything on the North American side of things. I'll research the topic, become informed (so as to make an actual informed vote), and give appropriate feedback that the competitors actually deserve (and need, if they wish to improve). Seeing the effort that every other judge puts in contrasted with that is just sad.
