After some good suggestions we have revised the rules and the rules will take effect after the current debate comes to its conclusion, between Jetsalltheway39 and JetsoverFins.

How do I call somebody out?

All you have to do is make a post in this thread stating who you are calling out. For example:

Jetsalltheway39 is calling out Joe.
Joe then quotes Jetsalltheway39 and will either accept or deny the challenge.


When is it an official debate and when are the questions posted?

Once the two people agree to the debate the debate will take place as soon as their are no more debates ahead of them. A list of the future and past debates are listed at the bottom of this page. The order of the debates will go in the order of when the debate is "official" Once it is the debaters turn up I will PM the two debaters and create a thread with the two debates name on it. For example:

Jetsalltheway39 vs Joe Debate Thread

The question will be the first post of this thread, however the debaters do not post their response here. (Instructions on the new method will follow)

The questions will be a question that will have two sides to take. For example:

Should the Jets trade Jonathan Vilma?

Taking a side:

Lets say Jetsalltheway39 called out Joe. Joe can either be for trading Vilma or against trading Vilma. If Joe agrees to not trade Vilma then Jetsalltheway39 will be forced to take the opposing side, in this case he will make an argument about why we should trade Vilma. With the new updated rules the debaters can never share the same opinion, each debater must have a different position from the other debater.

How do I respond to my question?

Another suggestion that will be put into effect is that the debaters responses will not be posted in the thread but PMed to either jetsalltheway39, jg6041 or jetsfan4life51. Once both debaters have submitted responses either jetsalltheway39 , jg6041, or jetsfan4life51 will post the responses in the debaters thread anonymously. This way the public won't know the debaters names until the poll comes to its conclusion. It will be listed as response A. and response B.The poll will be between response A. and response B.

How will I know which viewpoint I am to take? Also how long is the debate?

Another new rule that will be put into effect is the challenger will be told what view point to take. The person who accepts the challenge will have the choice of picking what side of the question they choose to answer. Once again the challenger will then be forced to take the opposing side.

The debate will consist of two rounds and each debater will send their responses to both rounds to Jetsalltheway39 , jg6041 or jetsfan4life51. After the first round is over both debates will be posted in the debaters thread anonymously. The debaters will then have the opportunity to read their opponents debate and come up with a rebuttal. The process will go as following:

1) The person who accepts the challenge will PM their response.
2) The challenger will then PM their debate with the opposing argument.
3) Both debates will then be posted in the debaters thread.
4) The debaters have the opportunity to read the debate and will PM a rebuttal.
5) Both rebuttals are turned in and the whole debate is posted in the thread.

How do I know which side to take?

After the question is posted the person who accepts the challenge will choose which side to take. After the person who accepts the challenge PM's their response to either Jetsalltheway39 , jg6041 or jetsfan4life51, one of them will PM the challenger telling them which side to take.

How is the winner determined? When are the names revealed?

After the debate comes to an end a poll will be set up in the debaters forum with a poll that will last for 3 days. You may vote for the winner in the poll but after 3 days of the poll running the winner will be determined.The poll will be between response A. or response B.

After the winner is determined the winner and loser of the debate will be revelead.

Can I post in the debaters thread?

Yes you may, don't try to guess who is who though. However you may post things like, good job or comment on the debate as it progresses. Please try not to give away info, let the debaters do it on their own. Encouragement is welcomed and your position on the question is welcomed.

jg6041, jetsfan4life51 and myself will come up with this during mid to late June.

We are using the debates now to work out kinks and basically like a pre-season contest. We have not discussed the details regarding the future tournament yet.
