Check out Q34 in Team Update #2. We have decided to leave the rules as written, which is what most people seemed to want anyway.

I think that this is a fairly good ruling.

By the way, teams that decline have to be pretty certain that they can live with multiple partners as their choice because while THEY can refuse, their potential ideal partner cannot.

If #1 picks #2 and #2 declines with the intention of picking team #X, be careful. Seed #1 may just pick #X either out of spite or out of their self interest.

It will certainly make the picking process a bit more tension filled.

Again I say, Good Luck to us ALL.
