New York Jets Debate Tournament

Welcome everyone to the New York Jets Debate Tournament a continuation of the pre-season "I am Calling You Out Thread!" After this tournament we shall know the greatest debaters and most knowledgeable posters this forum has to offer. Remember the point of this is to have fun and keep busy during the dog days of football so display your good sportsmanship and be respectful. Before signing up read through all of the rules!

Signing Up

All right signing up is pretty simple but there is one requirement we are going to ask of all of you. Its summer so many people will be going away, including myself for 10 days, so when you sign up please indicated the time/times you will not be able to debate for what ever reason, (ex. vacation, school, etc...). The other requirements are you post your user name, post count and do so in the format in the example below:

Username: Jetsdebate
Post count: 1000
Can not debate from: 6/24 - 7/3

*Note your post count for the seeding will be determined by the post count you list when you sign up. Do not edit your post count once you sign up.

Structure of the Debate

The debate will be tournament style, meaning their will be brackets. Depending on how many people sign up will determine how many people make it into the bracket. We will have either an 8 or 16 team bracket.

What if more than 8 but less than 16 people sign up?
In the event that this happens we will have playins dealing with the last seed. For example if 11 people sign up then seeds 6-11 will have to fight to make it into the 8 bracket. For example, if 11 people sign up:

1st Round
Poster: 1
Poster: 8 vs 9

Poster: 4
Poster: 5

Poster: 2
Poster: 7 vs 10

Poster: 3
Poster: 6 vs 11

2nd Round
Winner of: 1 vs (8/9)
vs
Winner of: 4 vs 5

Winner of: 2 vs (7/10)
vs
Winner of: 3 vs (6/11)

Championship
Winner of: (1/8/9) vs (4/5)
vs
Winner of: (2/7/10 vs 3/6/11)

The format will obviously be contingent upon the number of people that sign up but you get the basic idea.

More rules about the structure:
- The Final Four and Championship rounds will be a best of 3 series while all the other rounds will be a single game elimination.
- You will get seeded based on your post count

Rules when Debating Someone

You will be assigned a date you will be debating. In your sign up post when you say you can not debate between certain dates you will not be assigned to debate during that time period. Hence, the sign up post is very important.

Deadlines:
- The higher seed will have 48 hours to PM your first response of the debate to either Jetsalltheway39 or jg6041
- Once the higher seed sends in their response the lower seed will be notified of the response and will have 48 hours to respond via PM
- Once both debaters send in their initial response their responses will be posted in their individual thread.
- Once the responses are posted the debaters will have 48 hours after that to send in their rebuttal vis PM to either Jetsalltheway39 or jg6041.

*Notes:
- It would make things a lot easier to PM your responses to both Jetsalltheway39 and jg6041
- If you miss your first response deadline you automatically lose the debate
- If you miss your rebuttal deadline then you will not be disqualified but will have no rebuttal to match up against your opponent
- If you are going to be an hour or two hours late PM both Jetsalltheway39 and jg6041 and let them know, if you let them both know and the delay is short it will still count

The 48 hour deadline clock will be based off the times listed in the site for example:
- The question is posted at 2 PM Thursday then the higher seed will have till 2 PM Saturday to get a response in
- The lower seed is notified at 4:15 PM Saturday on what side to take and the response must be in by 4:15 PM Monday
- Monday 5 PM rebuttals are posted then both sides have till Wednesday by 5 PM to PM their rebuttals


Additional rules:
- The higher seed will pick his side first. The lower seed will be forced to take the side he is notified with.
- Pictures are encouraged but not mandatory; don't overload (ex. Don't have 20 pictures but 2-5 is a good number)
- Don't post anything that will give up your position on the debate

Picking a Winner

Just like the pre-season the debates will be posted anonymously and the debaters will be known as Debater A and B. Once the rebuttals are posted a poll will follow and the poll will be running for 72 hours. Once the 72 hours is up the winner will be revealed and will move on to the next round.

How Else Can You Participate

You will be encouraged to post in the individual debate threads such as; who you have winning and words of praise. However, no words of negativity will be allowed and please do not give any information to either of the debaters.

Since there will be a lot of questions needed for the debates please feel free to PM some questions to either Jetsalltheway39 or jg6041. We will give you credit as the question creater.

*Notes:
- PLEASE STAY ACTIVE

- When Jetsalltheway39 and jg6041 are debating the other will make the question
- In the event they face off against each other jetsfan4life51 will make the question


Remember guys have fun, show good sportsmanship and lets have fun!
Heres is a link to the I am Calling you out thread
I am Calling You Out


Some quick new rules:
- 1st and 2nd round will be General NFL questions; 3rd and 4th will be questions that deal with the New York Jets.
- The name of the people debating will not be posted as the title of the thread, but anonymously. The whole time you won't know the identity of the two debaters until the Championship. Then the combatants will be know as Debater A and Debater B. Again please do not reveal your identity.
- YOU WILL RECEIVER A PM WHEN IT IS YOUR TURN TO DEBATE!
- Do not give any hints or reveal that you are in the debate, keep it fair.
- The title of each thread will now be: Debate Tournament - Round 1 Matchup 1 Of course the Round and Matchup will be changing depending on the situation.
- Remember to check the first post of this thread for info dealing with the rules and how the deadline time works

Yes sir.

A thread is started for you and your opponent with a question and after you are told what side to take, assuming you are the lower seed, PM your answer to jg6041 or me.

Remember if you sign up use the correct format.
