An excellent effort across the board, but a big shout out to SPCRDI. I'll be honest, I would have never thought that he would be able to create such a wonderful debate. Serves me right for underestimating him.
Make papa proud, son. Make papa proud.

Nobody predicted me to win my debate. SPCDRI, the "Upset Special."
Those were some really good debates. I liked TehJerichoFan's very formal approach with citations.
Oh, and the soldier who was on a bunk and heard a song over a loudspeakers that said "I'll put a boot in your ass, its the American Way!"
was me. I was in the U.S. Army for 4 years. It is a Toby Keith song.

Re: TDL I: REBIRTH - THE RESULTS
Great comments by all the judges, hopefully everyone reading can see what the standard is and where people went wrong and use that to improve what was all round a superb collective effort for future editions of TDL.
I had high expectations for Seabs and his skits and they didn't disappoint. 'Mr.A4E' slayed me. The attention to detail in all the little quips was mesmerising and I was laughing in nearly every paragraph. Joel & Redead, Shepard shouting out Uncle John, Andy & Craig continuing to miss each other, all superb.
Congrats to all the winners including those who may have caused something of an upset. Every winner was a worthy one and can be proud of delivering such a tremendous opening effort. I look forward to reading the future debates and how those who have particularly excelled here maintain an impeccable standard.
