Boxing should be banned

I will protect my position by defending the debate topic. Definition of boxing: Boxing, the physical skill of fighting with fists, originated as a sport around 800BC.[1] It is a sport of antiquity that has had a troubled and contentious livelihood. The modern day sport has developed from rules and standards established since this time; with two participation forms: professional and amateur. Each has its own rules, although for both forms of boxing, a win is achieved by scoring more points...

Pro athletes are overpaid.

Pro athletes are overpaid. Some athletes are paid over $20 million a year and doctors, lawyers etc. (people making a difference in the real world) are paid less the half that. There is no doubt that these athletes are talented, but they make no difference to the lives of people except entertainment. Disagree?...

Skateboarding should be banned

Hello. My name is Keenan Harris. Before I start my debate I would like to thank my opponent for taking time out of his/her day to debate me, and I would like to thank the judges for taking time out of their day to read this debate and make intelligent decisions on who should, or should not be, the winner. It is because of you that Debate.org functions. Now onto my debate. Skateboarding should be banned. After you think about it, this statement couldn't seem any more true. As we all know, Urba...

Flat tax is a good idea.

First of all I would like to keep this debate as conceptual and philisophical as possible. I want to debate the idea as a theory. The flat tax is a great idea. It saves the government tons of money and labor hours that a complex progressive tax code causes. If you remove the complicated and confusing deductions and safe havens for tax money that allow the wealthy to pay less in taxes, they would actually have to pay their fair share. Believe it or not, the wealthy would pay more in a flat ta...

The Patriots undefeated season should have an asterisk on it.

The patriots have a superior team this year, arguably the best of all time, and should not be punished for mistakes of the past. I think if the patriots finish the season it should go down in history, as it should, as the best season in NFL history....

The Jets are poised to make a super bowl run.

It is my belief that it is only a matter of time before the Jets reach the Super Bowl. I like the combo of Thomas Jones and Leon Washington in the backfield and I think Kellen Clemmens shows some promise as a quarterback. The defense is decent. I think we could use a true nose guard to replace Dwayne Robertson if we're going to continue with the 3-4. Shaun Ellis still gets the job done at end and we've got a few good young players in Darelle Revis, David Harris, and Kerry Rhodes. The one spot wh...

Golf is not a sport

kenicks

Just what is a sport? A sport is an activity or in some cases, a lifestyle, that requires a competitive drive, to be in top of your physical form, and to spend ample time studying your sport. Basketball requires months of conditioning, hours studying and practicing plays, and the desire to work with your team to be the on top of all your competition. Football and baseball require the same type of training and necessities. Even individual sports such as Cross-Country running require the desire...
