The ideal situation is having the home and visiting scorers sitting side by side so they can compare notes as the game goes on.

Scorers can be a problem. When I started out many years ago I had just done a JV game and my partner and I were watching the varsity game from the bleachers. In the 2nd quarter, the visiting coach suddenly walks to the scorer's table and grabs the home scorer by the tie and attempts to pull him across the table! Seems the scorer had been bad-mouthing the visiting team's subs as they reported to the scorer. When I was coaching, I had a similar situation with a scorer but I was a bit more diplomatic. Table personnel have to be reminded sometimes that they are neutral.
