Well, Tier 2 is over. Winners below (in bold):

ALPHA

RESOLVED: Mercenaries should have the same legal protection and/or rights as "regular" soldiers.
thett3 (PRO) v. PartamRuhem (CON)

GOLD

RESOLVED: Museum admittance should be provided at no charge.
Lickdafoot (PRO) v. Raisor (CON)

There you have it, folks. Your Alpha champion is...PartamRuhem! Your Gold champion is...Raisor! But, there IS still one final tier to have.

So, without further ado, I present to you, the Finals for DetectableNinja's Debate Tournament. Who will win the Ninja Cup? Let's find out!

RESOLVED: Sex change surgeries for transsexuals should be provided at the public expense (tax money).
Raisor (PRO) v. PartamRuhem (CON)

Pro, please post your R1 argument within one week from now (by 9:00 pm, next Wednesday, CST). To repeat the rules about the debates:

1. Debates must have at least three (3) rounds OF ACTUAL DEBATE, but no more than 4.
2. Unless both debaters agree on an alternative and both say they agree, the debates should have the standard 72 Hour period for posting arguments, and max amount of characters (8,000).
3. Make it so that voters MUST leave a voting comment. This is non-negotiable.
4. The voting period can be as long as both debaters agree on, but know that I will call the debate after 3 days or so.

You can ask any questions here or in the official PM.

Or any man that breathes on earth.

Wow I do not see any Aff ground what-so-ever on that topic, but maybe being a conservative christian makes me biased.

I am not a conservative christian and I also have a hard time seeing Aff ground.

I have a few ideas but they mostly revolve around clever interpretations to shift the topic to areas I am more familiar with.

Can I get an extension on my argument deadline? I have assignments due Thurs and so will be very short on time through Wed. night.

Whatever works for you. Just as long as I know that you intend to put it up at SOME point.

I actually sent out the challenge. I will not have my actual first round up until Thursday night at the earliest though.
