I have a question on how the ratio rule is exercised on the field and I am hoping someone can clarify things. My understanding of the rule is that at the beginning of the game, the two teams decide which side of the field determines the gender ratio on the pull. My understanding is that the team that decides the gender ratio, the other team must match. So if Team A is deciding that the gender ratio is 4 M/3 F, Team B must play that same ratio. If Team A is deciding that the gender ratio is 3 M/4 F, Team B must play that same ratio.
My question is this: if Team A decides to play 4 M/3 F, can Team B decide play 3 M/ 4 F? Thanks for your help!
