I hereby declare the following as OUR winners of the first round. I must add that the judges were highly impressed and ALL only had a 'point' or half a 'point' between each contestant. I am sure they will add their piece.
Their decisions are final.

Polar Bob Voted..........Bulldog......Jessbass
Iafeta voted...............Skinner......Jessbass
IanS voted.................Skinner......Jessbass.

Congratulations to the winners, commisserations to the losers, but I may add, there were no losers here.

An excellent debate.
Thank you Judges.

Congratulations Skinner & Jesbass, two well deserved winners. Thank you admin for the opportunity to take part in the debate.
Thanks to the judges, Polar Bob for your vote..cheers!

With regards to the content of my essay, I should add that if you're an Australian, please dont be offended. It was simply tongue in cheek. Thank you and Happy Easter everyone!!

The above "guest" is me by the way. Hmmm, when were guests allowed to post? Interesting.

I knew it was you mate. However I have some good news for you. All runner/ups go into a draw for a BONUS prize. Details are not quite clear yet, but I will be having a face-to-face talk with our. 'mystery visitor'

Guys, I loved every essay. Bulldog, you and Skinner were seperated by the width of a pube in my book. Oz and Jess much the same. I loved the way you and Oz brought a distinct sense of humour into the debate. Awesome.

As I said earlier, I really wanted to be the low son-of-a-you-know-what judge who gave crappily bad votes, I couldn't do it - the votes I put in ranged from 8.5 to 10. On any given night, any one of those debates could have been winners.

Congratulations to Skinner, Bulldog, and my own opponent Ozbash. Great articles by you all! :D

Thanks for the votes, judges. Any constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated. :)

Congratulations, Jessbass and Skinner!! Tough call for the judges, and just glad I wasn`t one of them... would`ve been a really hard decision to make.

Thanks to all for the comments and particularly
thanks to Bulldog for the game - no BS mate, I
had you down as the winner.

Good win Jesbass - onward and upward.

MrBash, commiserations, but know you can sit back
and critique those yet to come.

Happy & safe Easter to all.

Yep, very close and as hard to decide as any decent NRL tussle. Any of the entrants could of beaten the other on a given day.

Well done all, it's a pleasure reading them.

Well done to all of you, you've set a pretty high standard right across the board. Those of us still to come, it's going to be tough!

Jess, it is really hard to constructively criticise a formidable effort.

I say that honestly from my journalism experience. There was a lot of material written that would be well received by major metropolitan newspapers.

I've just made a comment about Graeme Lowe's continual negativity against an organisation he helped near destroy and the hypocricy involved with those views - I'd have to say those articles were far superior than anything I've read from the likes of Graeme Lowe and Chris Rattue who are paid columnists who do not offer constructive criticism or a balanced argument with a tight conclusion but rather pure controversy overload.

"Full credit" as Fitzy would say.
