those who've responded to this individual instance appear to have set
aside the more general pressing question asked in the original post:

"Is it legitimate for a[ny] coach to write articles which are clearly
relevant to the current debate topic?"

if not, why not?
...if so, does this hold true even if the work is specifically tailored to
be used as 'evidence' in a debate round?

{additionally, to grind my own axe: how is this problem worsened by the
traditional distinction between analytical and evidential argumentation?}



'cheating', mr. russell? - but i thought...

"There are no rules in debate. Yes, I'm saying that this rule and *any other
rule* on who can produce evidence before a debate round ought to be revoked."
