Boxing should not be banned.

Udel
SlimmeMan

A lot of people think boxing should not be an official sport because it's very dangerous. I say that despite the risk, boxing should continue to be an official sport. I will accept the burden of proof and begin in Round 2....

They should lift the limits on whip use in a horse race

SaulSternberg
tejretics

When I've seen races in South America with no limit on whip use the horses go much faster and its much more exciting. On top of that its hypocritical as its common nowadays for horses to get a whipping in the stables before a race to wind them up for the race - i know I work in a stables. So why no leave it to the judgement of the jockey - some horses don't need much whipping but some need to be flogged pretty hard....

The 1992 Dream Team would defeat the 2012 Team USA.

BronsonC

Rules: 1. You must be for Team USA winning the game. 2. This is a one game match, not a seven game series. 3. All players are at the talent levels that they were in the respective years that the teams came into existence; the players are not necessarily in their primes. I believe that the Dream Team from 1992 would defeat the Team USA from 2012 for several reasons. 1. Team USA cannot stop Michael Jordan no matter who guards him. 2. Kobe and LeBron will be effectively shut down. 3...

LeBron James is the greatest basketball player of all time

KingJames23
alexthedebate

LeBron James is the greatest of all time. LeBron will have a longer career than Jordan will. (I know he didn't go to college) He has played against a generation where 3 point shooting is virtually impossible to miss. He carried the Cavaliers 2 games in the finals against the Warriors. This season they finished (73-9). LeBron has played against arguably the best talent in the NBA of all time. (03-16) Lebron has 2 rings. Jordan has 6. LeBron didn't win until he went to the Heat with Wade and Bosh....

Should homeschool student be allowed to play public school sports?

Wesroxs22
42lifeuniverseverything

States use a unique vocabulary in this area: "extracurricular," "cocurricular," "curricular," "interscholastic," "program," "activity," etc. Care should be taken to distinguish one from another. When a state defines a word, it is important. While athletic association rules are not "law," public schools are generally constrained to operate within them, or their teams could be disqualified. We therefore refer to association rules of particular importance in a number of entries....

The death penalty should be legal in all US states.

bluetree653
Hayd

For some, the death penalty could be less worse than jail. The death penalty is only used when absolutely needed, and sometimes it is the only rational/moral option. Even if a criminal was released from the death penalty/jail, it would be very hard for them to make a living. The death penalty can be painless. The death penalty provides disclosure for victims. If the death penalty is not in use, then America will end up spending more money trying to contain criminals from the...
