Proposed 2013 Nationals PF Debate Topics

The 2013 NFL National Tournament Public Forum Debate topic will be about the U.S. drone policy and will be selected from the following topics:

Resolved: When they conflict, government protection of civil liberties should be prioritized over domestic drone use by law enforcement agencies within the United States.

Resolved: The benefits of American drone strikes against foreign targets outweigh the harms.

The selected topic will be announced May 1 but there is no reason debaters cannot start their research now.


  1. Do you have any ideas for the NCFL resolution for the Grand National Tournament.

    "Resolved: The main goal of US public education should be to eliminate racial and economic achievement gaps."


  2. Which topic do you think will be chosen?

  3. Where did the nfl post these? Also, what were your initial thoughts about the quality of debate these will lead to? Much thanks!

  4. The phrasing of the first topic is terrible. If these are actually the two possible topics, it's bound to be the second one.
