re: College debate enters the 'post racial' era - Zach
[quote]But that is why it is debate and not soccer. In sports, the rules are rules. In debate you get to debate anything including the rules. If the other team doesn't like it, they should be able to put up a good argument on why we should stick to the rules.[/quote] That's idiotic. I make the a...

re: College debate enters the 'post racial' era - Zach
Subject shifting is done in political debates all the time. The idea is to shift the debate to the topic you'd rather discuss. For example, let's say that David Vitter is in a run off for Gov and is debating Cong. Liberal. Vitter: Congressman Liberal, during your term as Mayor of Zwolle you ran...

[quote]It's not even close to the same thing. The catcher doesn't have the ball. If he has the ball, he should be able to block the plate.

[quote]But can't the catcher block the plate before the ball gets there?[/quote] That's the controversy. The catcher is anticipating that he will have the ball before the runner arrives. Often his anticipation is wrong. That's why I would support runner interference if the catcher blocks path to...
