[eDebate] please include up-to-date caselist info
Sat Mar 27 17:19:18 CST 2004
And when I say "Amen to that", I mean amen to what Jane said.
Contrary, to popular opinion, we have teams in d7 that don't run
"traditional" affs (though I have problems with that term for a number of
other reasons), and yet, they managed to give us info before districts and
the info was helpful.
And to answer what Andy said, I think that caselist disclosure does benefit
everyone...even "non-traditional teams". We've debated a number of
"non-traditional" teams this year and guess what, most of them knew what aff
we were running before we told them (they still asked of course). So
apparently they're using the caselists.
Also, I'm not sure a caselist is an attempt to "map" debate. I think that a)
it depends on what you mean by "map" and b) most "non-traditional" teams
already do a decent amount of "mapping"...they've got prewritten blocks/args
too. So apparently since no one is against advance preparation, the caselist
seems to be a good idea and a nice help to schools without 10 coaches.
