I am a TABS judge with a focus in policy. I am not a fan of topicality and theory. Topicality is usually just a time suck and unless you can prove in round abuse, I am unlikely to vote on it. The same goes for theory. I have years of policy debate experience and therefore am very familiar with DA's and Kritiks. However, I think framework is important if you are going to run a kritik. I think brinks are crucial when it comes to the DA debate, as well as internal links. I think the impact debate determines a lot of rounds, and therefore you need to be extending and actually utilizing your impacts. You also need to be extending all parts of a DA or K if you expect me to vote on it, the same goes for the aff case
