now a days, the sports men have lost the enthusiasm of winning and playing in matches just because of little bribes made to them.Money matters more to them than their contry's reputation.therefore,match fixing should be declared a crime and the people doing match fixing should be heavily penalised.match fixers not only harm the spirit of winning in the losers but also harm the qualities of the player by making that player get addicted to these crime.

First of all, ladies & gentlemen, I would like to draw your attention to my illiterate opponent, who seems to write as if we were all troglodytes; confusing the spelling of such simplistic words, such as countries; and making quite plausible grammatical errors within his opening statement...

Quite frankly, my opponent seems to define the sportsmen responsible for match fixing (in the 21st century, as my opponent put in the word 'nowadays') as every man that has played during this time. This is a fallacy, as there is no statistical proof to show that every sportsman (& woman I might add) has indulged in some sort of match fixing scandal within their sporting careers.

My opponent has also failed to see that not only is there a certain amount of detriment to match fixing; but there is also more pultritudinous effects that parallel with match fixing, including how it could offer more money to people who need that money for their situations at home base; I will that more in my next two rounds though...

Also, my opponent hasn't clearly stated the dissertation at hand here; but from what I can gather in his opening statement, my opponent is arguing that match fixing should be declared a crime, & should be dealt with as a serious offence; which, therefore, means that I should be arguing that match fixing should NOT be declared as a crime, and should be punished in a way that does not include any involvement though the legal system.

If that is what we are arguing here, the burden is:

Affirmative - To prove that match fixing should not be declared as a crime
Negative - To prove that match fixing should be declared as a crime

I will go through my arguments in more detail in my next round...

What is the deal tonight? 3 debates that are up for voting, that were completed tonight include unnecessary spaces and dashes and exclamation points for no reason I can see other than to annoy. Pro gets my vote for having a somewhat rational argument, and he didn't annoy the fool out of me. I'm willing to concede here that this is more annoying than the forfeits.
