The importance of the opening jump is overrated.

I've been to a few camps where they say that the quality of toss sets the tone for the game and I simply don't believe it. The other team will get 2 of the next 3 alternating possession scenarios. And a poor toss rarely is remembered seconds later. Except by the non-tossers on the crew who may be laughing still minutes later.

Let the visiting team have the ball first and eliminate a completely unnecessary event. Just cause it's rare that a tosser gets hurt doesn't mean it's an entirely stupid way to start a game - rewarding someone officially for being taller.
