I hate to put a downer on the idea but... isn't debating topics jsut what a forum is for? It is the norm... you look at some of the numerous threads around this site. For examplr, the Player vs Player thread is nothing more than a debate about which players are better than others.

Most decent threads are those that have a degree of debate in them. If nobody debated the views of others, this website would be much less interesting.

No not really. The big difference, is that you might not necessarily agree with the preposition.
It's more organised, and you don't have other people chipping in. Its cut down to the bare bones of debatin. You don't just blurt out your own view. You might research and backup your argument.
It's competition.

But surely anybody worth listening to will back up their points anyway. If somebody just makes a statement without any evidence, it's not particularly convincing... is it?

Fair play if people want to make a debating feature... I just feel that it shouldn't be required.

There is definetly a big difference. This one will be much more structured, and there will be a winner of every debate based on how well the person delivers and backs up their side. Most of all its not about politics or anything else which usually leads to arguing not debating. This one will be just about football which will most likely not lead to name calling or getting anyone angry.
