    Use of evidence: 4.5 5.2
    Delivery skill: 3.3 4.4
    Coherence of arguments: 5 5
    Responsiveness to opponent: 3.2 3
    Identification of key points: 3.8 3.9
    Comments: Need to be a bit more responsive in your rebuttal speech. Your opponent's speech did a really good job of debunking a lot of the popular studies.

    While your argument is a little more nuanced than what she's referring to, you need to do a better job explaining why her responses don't apply to your argument.

    Your arguments were smart because they avoided being the typical arguments which are easy to debunk (like the "gun showcasing" argument)

    You did do a better job being responsive in the final rebuttal.
    The use of other countries was a really smart argument!

    Try to be a little more directly responsive in your rebuttal speech. You need to address this gun showcasing argument

    The decision is for the Opposition: Jillian Boccia

    Reason for Decision:

    It was a slightly difficult decision to make because there wasn't enough responsiveness. It made it difficult to figure out how different arguements relate to one another.

    I ended up voting opposition for two main reasons
    1) Evidence - there was stronger evidence and interpretation of that evidence to suggest that game violence does not translate to real world violence
    2) Presumption - Unfortunately, with a resolution like this, it seems that the the Proposition has a huge burden of proving that such an extreme action is worthwhile - the proposition needs to do more work to demonstrate that this is a very serious problem.
