The motion: "We should accept performance-enhancing drugs in competitive sports" Moderator: Bob Costas Speaking for the motion: Radley Balko, Norman Fost and Julian Savulescu Speaking against the motion: George Michael, Dale Murphy and Richard Pound IQ2US marks the launch of Oxford-style debating -- one motion, one moderator, three advocates for the motion, three against -- in New York City. Each evening begins at 6:00P with a complimentary cocktail period. As you enter the theater before the debate starts at 6:45P, you cast your vote for or against the evening's motion. Those results are displayed midway through the debate as each side makes its statements. After all six panelists speak, the audience has a chance to ask the speakers questions and vote again. The debate finishes with brief summations from the panelists, the votes are tallied and a winning side is declared.
