Actually, those people are right. As Casey Luskin and David Klinghoffer said over at Evolution News & Views, most of the action isn’t actually in Ham’s corner. It is on the broader front of growing evidence for design in nature vs. Darwin’s followers, who currently dominate biology.
So there is plenty of room for more debates. And not just about biology either.

Richard Dawkins famously refused to debate Craig for reasons that attracted suspicion.
