A argument came up in the comments of this debate http://www.debate.org...

I stated that the person who makes an extreme and radical claim against the status quo has the BoP, and the person who defends the status quo does not. I'm pretty sure thats right, but I still want to get feedback.

What do y'all think?

It doesn't always have to be extreme and radical, but you're right. However there are some resolutions and positions which cause the BoP to be shared, such as in cases where you are Pro and making a statement but at the same time arguing for the status quo.
I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas...
Is...
Youuuuuu
