Judging philosophy:


Robbie Goodrich
Currently-Rutgers Assistant
Former D 8 Coach and Debater @ WCSU
3rd Year Coaching and Judging


I believe debate has a significant educational value that goes far beyond research and accumulation of knowledge. Therefore I consider debate a unique pedagogical experience and the participants should act accordingly.

Paperless Debate: Novices catch a break. JV and Open, “all time” in between speeches that is not CX will be Prep. If both teams agree to an alternative then so will I.

Decision Calculus: “…each decision is different and requires an absolutely unique interpretation, which no existing, coded rule can or ought to guarantee completely…” Derrida 1990

I will place a high value on your performance and will evaluate your Ethical stance, use of Logic, and Pathos.
I understand debates that are technical and treat the activity as a game and judge them accordingly.
I love debates that examine the historical and socio-cultural significance of law.
I place a significant value on growing a productive reflexivity within debate and enjoy debates about debate.
