Con

I can't believe he said that. I'm against it.

Debate.
JohnMaynardKeynes

Pro

Con has provided no parameters as to this debate, so we are to assume it is a normative resolution and thus shared BP.

He has provided no reasoning against this resolution, so his BOP is unfulfilled.


C1) Morality is subjective, so there is no objective basis to say that this remark was "wrong."

C2) Matt Damon is awesome -- see Good Will Hunting or his rant against Sarah Palin.


C3) The comment is probably true. If not, it could be a challenge or a troll attempt, both of which are acceptable.

James Woods would have prevented so much of it if people had bothered to listen.

I wanna do a celebrity debate. "Mark Walberg would've prevented 9/11 if he were on one of those planes.

Easy win, all someone needs to do is write that on a picture of Matt, post it, resolution affirmed. No chance for rebuttals.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro had the BoP, and he did not fulfill it. Pro's job was to prove that the quote was from Matt Damon, and he failed to do that. I think he shouldn't have accepted this debate to begin with, but he could have won it if he just cited something (like an image of Matt Damon with the quote as a caption as mentioned by Ragnar). Even though that could easily be refuted, Con would have no way of arguing back since this debate only contains one round. Hence, I think Con won this debate. Pro's arguments are largely irrelevant.
