This is an offer for anyone to try and argue about sports. It doesn't matter what sport I will argue any fact.
Koopin

Con

My opponent is pro and I am Con. I must make the thing to be against.

Resolved, The Detroit lions did better in the 2008 season than the Pittsburgh Steelers. ( I am Con so I am against this)

The reason I am against this is because the Steelers won many games, the Detroit lions won no games.

I look forward to my opponents argument.

Hi that you for accepting the challange. The Detriot Lions did do better then the Steelers, they might have not won games but they improved immencly. If they did not do well in 2008 they really improved themselves for 2009.
Koopin

Con

Thank you or posting your next argument.

So you claim that the Lions did better than the Steelers because they improved for 2009?
Where are your facts? I have some facts to disprove this.

In 2008 the Detroit Lions won 0 games.
In 2008 the Pittsburgh Steelers won 12 games.

Now you say that the Detroit Lions improved so that means they did better in 2008?

In 2009 the Pittsburgh Steelers won 9 games.
In 2009 the Detroit Lions won 2 games!

I will now give an example.

There is a 16 miles marathon and two en are racing each other.
Man 1 runs 12 miles then stops.
Man 2 runs 0 miles but has improved himself to run 2 miles next year.
Who do you think did better? Man 1.

I look forward to your response.

Ok i dont use facts i dont need them :) anyways the thing is throughout the year the Detroit Lions improved alot they played alot better then the start of the season, the Steelers might have won alot of games but they did not improve as much.
Koopin

Con

Thank you for posting your next argument.

Improving i not being better. And it is obvious that the Steelers did a lot better than the Lions.
In the NFL you are judged on how many games you win. Those who win the most games go to the playoffs, which the Steelers did. And those who win all the games in the playoffs go to the Superbowl, which the Steelers also did and won.

You say you don't need facts because you don't need them? The truth is that there are no facts that the Lions did better.
In a debate you have to show proof, something that you have failed to do.

I thank my Opponent for this debate, and thank the audience for reading.

Conduct was going to be a tie until I asked Pro for proof. He then said that he does not need any proof.
Conduct means direction or management; execution.

I had TIE for conduct. Why'd you give yourself conduct, Koopin?

Cond: Pro, I personally don't like debate manipulation like this.
SpGr: Tie, lots of missed capitalizatiJon on both sides.
Args: Con, didn't really have muh hoice here.
Souc: Con, duh

Koopin i know that you do debates mostlly to win but lately I've noticed that in a lot of your debates you manipulate it so that is is almost literally impossible for you to lose. It is noy very informative or enjoyable for the audience when you do this. I can understand doing it when your opponent literally put no effort into their arguments and it just expecting an easy win because of the topic they made but you take this practice a bit far.
