    Comments: Lucas has an impressive constructive, you told us how authorities deal with sugary drinks, how are things going to be if we have too much sugar? And you provide solvency, how to be healthier. It is a very good starting. In your rebuttal, it's innovative to explain your points with the example of sugary drinks and coffee, clarifying why kids shouldn't have sugary drinks. In your closing, it was a great strategy to remind your opponent that he was supposed to answer your points. You have delivered great debate skills to us, and you use evidence well! Here is my suggestion, you did use source from CDC to support your points in your constructive, it worked well. If you could find more when you make rebuttals, it would be perfect! David's constructive has two innovative points, these two points explained to us that why sugary drinks shouldn't be banned. I like your points, but I have a suggestion here. You mentioned "scientists proved", it was a little bit vague, if you could say the scientist's name or authorrities who proved, it would be better. In your rebuttal and closing, caffeine was a good breakthrough. You found the link betwwen coffeine and drugs. Here, I still think you might need reliable sources to prove coffeine is kind of drug which would make people addicted. Excelent points and rebuttals!

    The decision is for the Proposition: Lucas Hinds

    Reason for Decision:

    Both Lucas and David have an impressive debate speech and delivered us excellent skills! Your debates were tight and innovative. After consideration, Lucas wins this round. Lucas has clear and logical points of view, he provided solvency and the entire speech was very convincing. Also, David made a clear and logical speech. A citation would be important, David's speech would be perfect if you could get more reliable sources to support your points.
