No Judge agreed with you on it (Seabs said that they could be condensed, which isn't the same as your opinion), and in fact TLK went in the complete opposite direction.
Seabs said it should have been condensed which meant that you should have cut some of it out. Same thing.
Its something that makes winning a 100m more special than winning a shooting gold medal for example. Hence why it was included.
More special in terms of hype doesn't equal a bigger achievement. This was actually covered over both feedback cards. Not sure why you're whining here? It just wasn't a very good argument.
could compare it to Chinese athletes from 5 years ago, Greek athletes from 9 years ago etc etc. If you think its irrelevant then say so rather than make a stupid comment about a time machine. I compared it to Bolt and Phelps, no one will remember much about ennis, people will remember Bolt and Phelps.
Okay, so why wasn't the bolded included in your debate? You're just giving me even more reasons as to why your counter arguments weren't supported well enough
don't want words on establishing a debate, but you want them on saying the olympics are more recognised than the paralympics? really?
No, I never criticised the differentiation of the Olympics and the Paralymics, just the overblown narrative of what the Olympics actually is (which had nothing to do with separating it from the Paralympics), along with a few points/questions (notice the use of "most" in the feedback) that were never answer satisfactorily.
not in the judging of mine though. on that point though, " The supporting angle of having to overcome a torn MCL was crucial in sending this debate over the top," really dude? really? So if i said Bolt had to overcome a back and hamstring issue that would have made this harder to pick in that sense
non-serious injuries months out from the olympics are fairly meaningless.
There was extra feedback in the decisions card, but never mind...Yes that put PP's debate over the top, because he built a strong argument around the idea that Harrison had to overcome several issues that could have affected her psychologically. If you had found an angle like that (or something else, but directed in that type of manner) then you might have been able to compete with him, but you didn't.
I have no issue with PP winning, and reading his would definitely judge that the winner. Don't like getting stupid judging comments on it though.
Your debate wasn't very good and I have explained exactly why. You might disagree with my stance but it was up to YOU to convince me with your arguments. The fact that you are bringing out better supporting claims NOW then you did in your debate says a lot for the quality of your debate.
I would actually agree with you about Bolt being a greater achiever, and while some of your arguments might have some merit you didn't include enough evidence or persuasive language to overcome any doubt. The majority of your points came off more like opinions than well reasoned arguments due to the lack of evidence in support, hence why I pointed out all of the potential flaws within your counter points with such disdain. You need to delve deeper into why these points are legitimate.
I'm sorry that you're upset about a little time traveling joke, but without supporting evidence I can only take your arguments at face value. Like I said before, I'm not here to fill in the gaps for you, you have to provide the evidence within STRONG arguments, not just a few throwaway statements that lack clarity and elaboration. There's plenty enough explanation as to why your points left areas of doubt so I'm not sure why you're arguing the toss over it? I suppose it helps when you can properly comprehend the feedback, which I've noticed you've failed to do a few times. Regardless of that, just remember to support your claims properly, even you can't be deluded enough to think that you provided enough supporting evidence (which this this discussion has proved)?
At the end of the day...My judging >>>>> Yours
You have a problem with this then go to Seabs about it when he's back, I highly doubt that he will agree with you...
