the olympic games were NEVER the friendship games! people usually only go there to try to become the best or keep thier positition as the best. in the history of the olympics no one has ever said" oh it's O.K you can have my gold medal i don't want it". people only compete to be the best. now in Beijing people are competing and are not going thier worst but thier best.

The topic: "The Olympic games are no longer the friendship games."

Definitions
==============
No Longer: Not anymore.

Resolution Analysis
=====================
The topic quite clearly means that at some point the Olympic games were the friendship games but this is not the case anymore.

Case
============
My opponent quite clearly states, "the Olympic games were NEVER the friendship games!" Thus it is impossible for them to NO LONGER be the friendship games on the premise that they NEVER WERE the friendship games. This proves the resolution to be a false statement. I adopt the position that the Olympics are simply, "Not the friendship games." Thank you.

I have nothing to say, my point stands unrefuted. I'd like to urge everyone to vote Con. Then I'm going to type some more so I hit the character limit....

Ah, another very exciting debate, incredibly intense. Though something in the comment section has caught my eye; it appears that Logical-Master feels that Pro should be voted for because I have conceded comment section clarification. This is true, I have conceded such, however no clarification was ever made thus we must assume that Logical-Master, sometimes known as fallacious beast, should be disregarded. Thanks.

Hmm, CON concedes to comment section clarification due to drop, therefore, I vote PRO. :D

PRO, you should clarify. Surely you meant to say that the olympic games were NEVER the friendship games during last month and now.
