Gatorade is original and Powerade is a copy. Also Gatorade tastes better. There are better flavours and the bottle sizes are better than Powerade bottles. Powerade bottles only have one bottle size. Gatorade also has powder for water.

Con

I accept.

PRO has the full BOP to prove that Gatorage is objectively better than Powerade. To do that, he must prove that one can be objectively better than the other. Unless he establishes a standard for objectivity, his arguments can't have any impact. In other words, everything in his first round is an opinion, and lacks that objectivity standard. Unless he substantiates these ideas, you vote CON by default.

Con

Again, you can discard all of them from the start because he provides *no* framework for objective superiority.

The first point on uniqueness is (a) not evidenced and (b) irrelevant, because PRO doesn't link it to the resolution.

The point on taste is nothing more than PRO's opinion. The same extends to "better flavors" and "better bottle sizes."

The point on Gatorade having powder doesn't tell us anything either. Is this a good or bad thing, and how does it link to PRO's BOP?

PRO has done nothing to uphold his BOP.

Therefore, vote CON.
