Anderson Silva did not throw his fight with Chris Weidman

THElittleRISK
masterdebater1987

I am hoping to argue with another MMA afficionado over Anderson Silva's stunning loss to Chris Weidman via KO. I have recently seen several commentors speculating that Silva threw the fight to get a bigger rematch. I will be arguing that this is not the case. Obviously there is no concrete evidence, so we will be left to hypothetical examinations of pre and post fight behavior. Burden of proof is on Con to present arguments for Silva intentionally losing the fight. Voters should vote based...

Is Marshall Faulk better than Adrian Peterson

Luke_Burdette
brent_polise

Faulk currently places tenth on the all time rushing list, while Adrian Peterson places seventeenth. Adrian Peterson's average yards per season is less than Marshall Faulk's. Secondly, Marshall Faulk is one of the greatest minds football has ever seen. The most threatening thing about Marshall Faulk was that he could look at the two deep safeties, and now which way to run if he broke free. This has resulted in one mvp award, and two offensive player of the year awards. AP has one less offensive...

95-96 Chicago Bulls OVER the 15-16 Golden State Warriors

Yes, the Bulls had Jordan, as well as Pippen and Rodman, but in a 7 game series, there is no team in NBA history that could defeat the streaking Warriors. Curry is at the top of his game, and the depth exhibited by them is unmatched by any team since possibly the 72 Knicks. This is my first debate and I am looking forward to discussing this topic with my opponent....

I agree with this because girls should have the same opportunities as boys should. I think that they should be hot because boys should kiss them if they win....

The 1992 Dream Team would defeat the 2012 Team USA.

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...

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....
