    My opponent states that I provide no evidence for the cruel ways that fishers kill dolphins, however I actually provided it in the citation box in my first speech. I will once again give the URL:

    Thank you once again to the judge and my opponent for providing a great debate this week.

    Use of evidence: 4 3.5
    Delivery skill: 3.7 2.6
    Coherence of arguments: 3.2 3
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4 3.4
    Identification of key points: 3.5 2.6
    Comments: Good job establishing the criterion for the debate. This really helps you control all of the arguments for both sides.

    I think you need to do more to frame the debate generally. You let you opponent get away with framing the debate in a way that benefits her and really saps your arguments of its weight.

    Also, make sure you cite your evidence.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Sumin Hwang

    Reason for Decision:

    Both sides need to do a better job identifying key arguments. It seems like both sides assume they are winning every argument.

    That being said I think that the proposition does a much better job establishing the framework for the debate and only the proposition explains to me how I can view the competing claims in this debate.
