    Comments: Khasim -- Nice relaxed and conversational speaking style. I greatly appreciated listening to you talk. My biggest suggestion would be to work on a little more coverage/clash of opposing arguments and be clearer in that final speech for why your side of the debate wins. Make it a sales pitch for me. Congrats on making Round 3! Lily -- I was impressed with the setup of your Opposition case. Of all the videos I've watched over the last three weeks in this competition, yours was a novel and unique approach. As the Subway jingle says -- Fresh is good!! You were clear with your voters and organized. Biggest suggestion is to integrate more evidence into things. Some claims could have used solid backing.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Lily Worst

    Reason for Decision:

    I am signing my ballot in Opposition because I never thought Prop addressed the distinction between stopping the HUNT vs. stopping the SLAUGHTER. Opposition does a good job of identifying that the majority of the harms come from killing and identifying some benefits that come from captivity that Prop fails to answer until his very last speech, when this is a new argument.

    I would have appreciated hearing more of the nets vs. hunt issue in the rebuttals as well as I thought this, too, was a unique Opp point that could have carried forward stronger.

    The argument on Japan being less resistant to the slaughter stopping rather than the whole hunt was good for Opp also as this hit at heart of Prop argument.

    Thank you both and congrats for making Round 3.
