I agree that running the 12th hoop is generally a disadvantage if it
makes the score 6-6.
But I agree with Tony that no matter what hoop is played next the player
playing first will have an advantage.
And I disagree that other sports start from a position of no advantage
even though it is reduced by restarting not playing on 'as time is
called' - in league one side must kick off to the other giving the
receiving side first opportunity (and usually three opportunities in the
first 5 minutes compared to 2 for the side kicking). Soccer has the
dreadful penalty shoot out but one team must kick first thereby having
an advantage if successful in putting the pressure on the opposition.
Tennis starts a tiebreaker with one player serving and a similar
position to soccer and golf requires one player to hit first thereby
showing the opposition what they have to better.
