Of course, being in Raleigh there are a lot of reds so that plays a role.
I think it's worth drawing a distinction between an organized pickup where a fixed number of people show up (i.e, 10 per side) and teams are divided up before hitting the ice vs an open ice situation where a random number of people show up and you split them up on the ice at the start and go from there.

I'm speaking specifically of organized pickups.
