In a team tournament, you can better see where your partner is casting, and what he is throwing to "work together". Sometimes it gets in the way if you're working small targets, but it definitely prevents the casting way forward from the back deck and blocking the front deck.
I like my back-deck partner to work differently than me until we are on a pattern. If I am fishing shallow and/or slow, they can fish the deep side or get multiple casts at different angles from targets I skipped over. I'll even save some specifically for the back deck when fishing team tournaments, it takes communication that I haven't mastered to point those out...
