Agree about Adj decision rewarding exactly what they said not to do (stats and memorising). Still can’t believe they didn’t see that the speech was memorised (pretty sure he stated the exact number of homeless people in Sydney lol). He should be disqualified but probs won't happen.
PLC (neg) won in a split decision on the topic "That in times of severe economic crisis, the government should censor all news that talks about the state of the economy"
Good debate and fair decision imo.
This Friday in Senoir A is:
Shore v Roseville
Scots v Joeys
Knox v Abbotsleigh
Barker v PLC Sydney
My predictions would be Shore, Scots, Knox and Barker, but the adjs as well as the topic could see top teams lose like last Friday.
No, there was only one choice for some reason. Also I'm fairly sure Grammar drew Neg on that topic, which is definitely winnable considering the fact that the topic gave the Hollywood wage gap as an example.
