    Use of evidence: 4.2 4.5
    Delivery skill: 4.2 4.3
    Coherence of arguments: 4.4 4
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4.3 4.1
    Identification of key points: 3 4.3
    Comments: You really need to work on structure or purposefully don't. Narrative or storytelling paradigm is really cool if you're into that shit. That being said, you kind of mishandle the round off the bat. All of us want max time we can get, but in this format there is little flexibility. You can't run 1:30 over without making an argument why is a part of it when the violation took place... Normally I don't buy time arguments, but in this case the violation was clear. I have not voted for a team that ran a time violation in 20 years. Congratulations on convincing me for only the second time in my judging career.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Molly Elgee

    Reason for Decision:

    Oddly, I end up buying the time limit arguments by the negative. Neg articulates first violation and qualification over a minute overtime and Aff just says neg violates too, but I buy the a priori violation cited by neg...I vote neg
